No problems with suspend (to ram), ASUS Z84F,
The first place to look when diagnosing suspend problems is /var/log/
pm-suspend.log. After that, look at kernel doc, http://
follow links from there, as seems appropriate.
You need to determine if this is a suspend problem or a resume problem. No, not
kidding, I have been bitten harder by problems showing as a failure to suspend
cleanly (driver changes are good at this) than failure to resume if the suspend
Fedora resume will drop network connections on resume, for some reason using the
network before hetting it back up is not considered vital, so if you have NFS
mounts they will die, your DHCP and LDAP probably die, etc. The network usually
gets up, but often without DHCP running.
I stopped complaining about that after NetworkManagler became the true faith,
and a developer asked me "well, what do you expect?"
FWIW, its sometimes said that reporting kernel problems to Bugzilla
a waste of time, as kernel developers don't pay attention to them. I
can testify that my recent eperience (a suspend problem, no less)
contradicts that. They are, in fact, very attentive.
