Default Laptop wake-up issue

Hi all,

I have recently built Debian 6 squeeze on my Toshiba Satellite P200 laptop, Everything runs great on it except the sleep or hibernate function

I have setup the power options so that when the lid is shut it goes to sleep, when i open up the lid i can see the screen and HDD's spin up but the screen remains black. Its backlit but off,i cant get a logon screen to enter my password.

I have to hold the power and cycle and start again. A little annoying if i'm trying to work on something and need to come back later. Doesnt really work.

Anyone troubleshooted an issue like this before? Where can i start? Wanting to try anything o fix it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Sleep and hibernate are two different things calling a different set of
routines so, is that both fail, sleep that fails or hibernate?

Are you sure is "sleep" the called function?

Okay, I would start by reading these articles:

http://wiki.debian.org/Suspend
http://wiki.debian.org/Hibernation
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pm-utils

Then, for debugging purposes, manually call the suspend or hibernate
scripts, from command line, to see what happens (man pm-action).

Also, there uses to be a log file at "/var/log/pm-suspend.log" which
registers most of the problems when sending the computer to sleep/
hibernate and also when you want to restore it. Take a look at it.

Hi Camaleon,

Thanks for your response, I just resolved this issue last night by installing the proprietary drivers from nvidia. It now wakes up from sleeping fine as it should.

Many thanks
Nathan

Nice to see you've solved it. In fact, the VGA driver is usually one of
the most problematic components for suspending/hibernating smoothly or
when resuming but there are some "hacks" you can try (such as
blacklisting the driver involved to avoid it gets suspended/hibernated)
but well, if using the nvidia driver removes the problem and you're happy
with it, fine then :-)
