Suspend Problems in KDE

Postby Incense on Fri May 11, 2007 11:46 pm

First I have to say I love Mint Linux. The KDE version looks amazing, and I really have to thank the Mint team for rolling that out. I do have one issue. My notebook will suspend just fine, but will not wake up. the lights turn on, but the display is dark. This works under (k)ubuntu, Suse and everything else I have thrown at it. Any ideas? I have a Compaq is that helps. Thanks!!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Welcome to Mint Incense
Suspend/hibernate is one of the more troublesome areas in computing and it is not (always) easy to find a solution. Please tell us more about the notebook you have (the exact model) and which graphics card it has and the driver. Often the culprit is the video subsystem

I have a compaq presario V4310NR, here is most likely too much information from the HP site. I did try to remove kpowersave, and install klaptop, which does allow my notebook to wake up, but then for some reason sudo breaks. I forget what the error message is, but I could not get around that either. Good times.

What do you mean? Sudo does not break - hopefully. Installation of klaptop fails, is that wat happens?
Do you know from experience that klaptop works?
Try to install it again and post the error message.
Anyway, part of the explanation can be found in the fact that you have shared video memory, i.e. your video system has no memory of its own, but "steals" from normal memory.

LOL, of course because I asked for help, the problem did not occure. I did a fresh install, suspend still didn't work, installed klaptop, open office... everything I did before, and the system is working great. I still don't know why kpowersave won't restore. It's works just fine on kubuntu and SUSE.

My SUDO issue did not occure. My error was something to the effect that I was no longer authorized to use SU, and lost my admin access on the system. I tried to add my profile in SUDO, and it wouldn't stick. Everything works great now though. Thanks for your help. It's a great distro!
