Looks like you the the assigned developer working on it with you (as of
a few minutes ago).

Looks to me as if 227989 should be marked as a duplicate of your bug.

But see'ing as how 227989 actually has a real person assigned to it, I'd

leave it to Gardner or someone else to mark it as a dupe.


Dupe or not, it's great news that somebody is working on it. Great to have an operating system that somebody is actually trying to improve.

I'd also like to use the opportunity to say thank you! I've mainly used Ubuntu the last year (except at work), and for a number of different reasons I still use it, -even when suspend/resume doesn't work. It's just so wonderful to have sudo, a good LAMP configuration, compiz and of course the rest of the benefits you get, just by using any linux (like a responding computer, a decent command line interface, a choice of great window mangers etc.)

I'd suggest that you add on

to 227989 noting that it doesn't work with -19 _and_ point them to your


Have added a note to 227989.

I don't know if this is relevent to your issue or not, but when I was
looking at the default modprobe.d black list this morning I noticed the
following in both Gutsy (2.6.22-15-generic) and Hardy (2.6.24-19)

~$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
[snip]
# causes failure to suspend on HP compaq nc6000 (Ubuntu: #10306)
blacklist i2c_i801

Your laptop is an nc6320 so I assume it is part of the same HP/Compaq
nc6xxxx family. Seems to have been a pretty serious problem to have the
module blacklisted for all time.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hotplug/+bug/16602

Anyway, in your bug report you show: "Suspend/resume worked fine on
2.6.24-13, was broken on 2.6.24-14, worked again on 2.6.24-15 and, for
me at least, is broken again on 2.6.24-16" and now broken again on -19.

And Spencer confirms: "I can confirm both suspend and hibernate worked
ok in 2.6.24-15 and has stopped working in 2.6.24-16 (since installing
8.04)"

I know this may be a little tedious, but you might try looking at the
change logs of -13, -14, -15, -16 etc to see if you can spot something
that might have been fixed in broke again in 15. See:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux
By tedious, I mean that you have to scroll down to
2.6.24-13.23
Superseded in hardy-release on 2008-03-30
and work your way up. Pick out the most obvious and then check to see if
they may affect your problem. For example:

For example:
2.6.24-13.23
Superseded in hardy-release on 2008-03-30
* Disable DRM suspend/resume on pre-915 Intel chips
- LP: #207496
is HP laptop specific.

2.6.24-15.26
Superseded in hardy-release on 2008-04-04
* ACPI: fix boot oops regression in kernel
- LP: #207014

Notice that https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hotplug/+bug/16602
appears to be an battery bug, and 207014 is also an ACPI/battery
bug/fix. I've no idea if the above are related to your issue, but wonder
if the problem overall is ACPI related.

Have a look through the rest of the change logs and see if you can spot
anything else obvious between the kernel changes. Sometimes fixing bugs
for some create problems for others.

Can you try booting with acpi=off and see if you notice any change in
suspend/resume? Keep in mind that this is just a WAG, but it can't hurt
to give it a shot. Added questions: Do you still have 2.6.24-15 on your
system? Did you also try on -18?

Seems fair to me : ) i'll see what I can find out.
