I wonder if you ever figured this out?
I have finally decided to try and get my laptop to suspend, as it has never worked since I installed FC2 perhaps 5 months ago.
I have since installed FC2 a couple more times and am now using FC3, it has never worked once.
I can suspend my laptop with the simple command
echo -n 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep
Thanks to Void Main for that command.
I just don't know how to get back from suspend?
My laptop is a HP Pavilion ze5604ea (just in case anyone has this machine working?)
When I issue the command, my Laptop powers down pretty damned fast, and my power LED goes from a solid light to a flashing light. (which is what it did under XP)
Under XP I had 2 options, I could press the power button (If the lid was open) OR I could open the lid, in either case the latop would bring itself out of standby and return to the point I was working at.
With Fedora, I press the power button (OR open the lid) in both cases the laptop appears to power back up as the power LED goes solid again, the power button and One Touch buttons all glow blue agin, and I can open the CD drive with the soft button, BUT nothing actually comes back on screen. I am not sure if the screen is just not turning back on or what. I think not, as I have not seen the HDD activity light come back on, and the wireless card does not appear to power up either?
