Re: Suspend and X

I set replies to go to debian-laptop.

I actually posted one solution to the debian-laptop list this morning. I
force the laptop to switch to vt 1 when it suspends. Add the following
script to /etc/apm/event.d/01chvt (be sure it's executable):

# change to vt1 when suspending to keep X from locking

if [ "$1" = suspend ]; then
  chvt 1

Of course after suspending the system comes back up on vt 1, but I can
easily switch back to X if it keeps the system from crashing.

Does anyone know how to grab Fn-F1 (Setup Menu) or Fn-F3 (Battery
status) that switch back to text mode? They also crash if you hit
those keys from X, but are fine from a text console.

If you find out how do suspend without switching to a text console
first, please let us know.
