Fedora

Suspend / resume finally working Acer Ferrari 4005WLMi

The day has finally come, my laptop finally suspends and resumes correctly under Fedora Core 6 – it’s mostly got part way through the suspend operation before and then hung, or on the few occasions where it shutdown, it would hang or panic on resume.

Today using kernel 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6 it worked – suspend all the way to power off, and on resume even got the WiFi fired back up. The only one minor thing it didn’t quite pull off was getting the attached usb hard drive back in action – a quick unplug and replug later and it’s sorted.

This is quite cool, however I’m just in the middle of downloading another kernel update and I hope that keeps the progress made with suspend and resume on this laptop.
