I wasn't sure what forum to put this in but since I am running F17 64-bit looks like this is the only place it fits. Last night I had put my machine in suspend mode and after a while decided to just shut down. I brought the machine up to the point where I could login or power off and I chose power off. Today I tried starting my machine and it immediately comes up in a blinking power/suspend mode and no matter what I do on the keyboard nothing happens. The screen never comes up and the machine stays in suspend mode. I have an Acer Aspire ASE380-UD440A desktop and normally when the OS goes into suspend mode I just press the blinking power button once and it snaps out of it but now it just stays in suspend mode. Has anyone come across this behavior and if so how did you wake your machine up?

Well, I resolved it but it was very strange. First I had to turn the power off at the source while the computer was still blinking in suspend mode. I waited 10 seconds and turned the power strip back on. The Acer startup screen came on and went through the normal startup for Fedora. I am not sure if it was a bad hardware state or software state but pulling the plug, which I found a bit scary, worked.
