Ok, several things to test here:
- First, did sleep/wakeup work previously ?
- Try without every going to X (boot in console mode) and tell me if
- Can you disable cpudyn and manually change the CPU speed (doing echo
"powersave" or "performance"
>/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/scaling_governor) and try sleep/wakeup in
both low and high speed and tell me if both are crashing
- Can you disable CONFIG_CPU_FREQ and tell me if it sleep/wakeup works
