The nvidia driver knows a lot more than nv. It can tweak both X and the
kernel to do things, it is much easier for nvidia to support s2ram.
With linux's acpi_sleep=s3_bios, I execute s2ram -f. At resume, the
computer works, but the screen is black, pressing CapsLock does not
change the LED.
Here's what the upstream dev thinks about this:
< bgoglin> aaronp: what's the status of s2ram with nv? should work?
buggy and might be fixed? wontfix?
< aaronp> My understanding was that it works as long as the system POSTs
the GPU on resume.
< ajax> which only works if the BIOS is there to be POSTed.
< aaronp> right
You might want to try passing -p (or maybe -s) to s2ram in case it
helps. Try switching to VT console before suspend too.
I have done two tests:
After s2ram -p -f in VT1: screen remains black. LED at CapsLock works,
CD ejecting (button F12) works. I switched blindly to VT3 (alt ctrl
f3), logged as root and executed halt -t now. The computer halted.
After rmmod sky2;s2ram -p -s -f in VT1: screen black, capslock LED ok,
but after doing ctrl+alt+f7 (X11), even CapsLock LED stopped functioning
and the machine is not responsive at all. I must stop it with Power button.
