[SOLVED] Dell 1545 laptop lid switch suspend/hibernate

Postby BopNiblets on Thu Mar 25, 2010 2:53 pm

Hi guys, running Mint 8 on this laptop, Suspend/Hibernate/Resume works ok using the power switch and menu option, but has a problem resuming from suspend and hibernate when closing the lid, no matter what I set it to in Power Options, it powers up when I open the lid or press power after opening the lid but the screen always remains off.

The only option that seems to work is Blank Screen, and maybe Shutdown, but they aren't the ideal options, wondering if this is fixable thanks. :)

BopNiblets,

In the event your search does not provide a solution, the forum rules also outlines what information is needed for someone to provide adequate assistance.

Ok I did a search already and found nothing that's why I posted new topic.
The lid switch is connected to PNP0C0D/button/input0 according to System Hardinfo benchmark tool... not sure what other info I can post

I did a test of playing some music in rythmbox then closing the lid to suspend/hibernate, then when I opened it the music plays for a bit indicating it does resume the system then the music starts looping, but the screen never comes back on at all.

Perhaps this is an ubuntu issue too? Not sure what if anything I can do to resolve this on the Mint forums then?

Many have had problems with suspend/hibernate functions due to swap partition being smaller than the amount of RAM. This was not originally a problem for me. It did surface when I added RAM without increasing my swap size. This may not be your problem, since you have problems when you close the lid, not when you use the GUI. Of course, it could be intermittent based on how much RAM is committed when you set it to suspend/hibernate. If you have more RAM committed than swap available at the time you go to suspend/hibernate you will have problems.

To check RAM and Swap sizes:
Code: Select all
inxi
and
Code: Select all
inxi -P

Post the output of these commands once you have run them.

If you check this and it does not indicate an undersized swap partition as a possible source of the problem, then you will need to post the information outlined in the forum rules for someone to carry this assistance further.

Gparted says my swap is about 9.5 gigs (4GB RAM) so I doubt that's the problem, I didn't set it to that of course I just used the full HD size to install so mint set that up.

I agree.
BopNiblets wrote: ...so I doubt that's the problem,


We still need more info.

From the forum rules:
It will make things easier for all that wants to help in the forum if you followed a few simple rules before posting

C Include the version (Gloria or Mint 7 and so on) and edition (main, KDE, XFCE, Fluxbox ...)
D If you get error message(s) please include the correct and complete error message
E Almost all problems have a hardware component - run lspci in a terminal and include. If it is a USB device also include lsusb
F If the problem is about a particular "device", like a sound card or a wifi card, found in lspci run lspci -vvnn and post the section for that device (that section only please - it's a very long list)


Also the output from
Code: Select all
inxi -G


It makes a difference, we can not search for information or draw on learned knowledge without something to go on.

I see between your graphics output

and that of others with ATI Mobile Graphics :
GLX Renderer ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 GLX Version 2.1.9016 Direct Rendering Yes
and
GLX Renderer ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series GLX Version 2.1.9016 Direct Rendering Yes

has to do with Direct Rendering. Theirs both indicate YES, meaning 3d graphics is enabled. Yours may be, but instead of GLX Version 2.1.9016 it has GLX Version 1.4 (2.1.9016).

Your system is capable of Suspend/Hibernate, you said it works from the Quit Menu in your first post, but not from closing the lid. And you said you had checked and tried different options in the Power Management Utility. Your RAM/Swap size does not appear to be the trouble maker. So, even though I may be going astray from your problem. Check and see if you have the latest drivers available installed for you graphics card.
Menu > Control Center > Hardware > Hardware Drivers
I do not know if a lack of 3D rendering, if there is one, would effect wake up from suspend. Then again, it may depend on how much eye candy you have enabled.

One way to verify if you have 3D rendiering is to enter in a terminal:
Code: Select all
glxgears

this will give you a small window of the intermeshed turning gears, and show your frame rate in the terminal window.

I hope this helps because I am at the end of my knowledge in this area.

Re: Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop lid switch suspend/hibernate i

Postby remoulder on Mon Mar 29, 2010 10:08 am

BobNiblets, A few things to try:

When the laptop comes back on with the screen blank, can you try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F6, then Ctrl+Alt+F7 to see if the gui comes back.

Have you installed the ATI drivers via the Hardware Drivers app in Administration menu? If so have you run sudo aticonfig --initial and are there any settings in the Catalyst Control panel that might affect this? Whilst I don't think your problem is directly a video driver issue, you might want to check out https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI

You can change the way acpi works to some extent by editing the file /etc/default/acpi-support
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/default/acpi-support

See these posts http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=668986, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=596666 for suggestions.

Finally have you checked any BIOS acpi settings that may affect this, e.g. Resume from S1

dawgdoc: yeah the 3d glxgears works ok, thanks.
And I have the Proprietary Radeon drivers installed.

I see these entries in the /etc/default/acpi-support file:
Code: Select all
# Should we switch the screen off with DPMS on suspend?
USE_DPMS=true

maybe change this to false?
Code: Select all
# Use Radeontool to switch the screen off? Seems to be needed on some machines
# RADEON_LIGHT=true

and uncomment this or some variation?

I'll try the Ctrl Alt key combos but I'll have to change the keys in BIOS because they're default on the Fn key functions, wifi on/off, volume etc.
Thanks guys.

You shouldn't need to change these key settings even if you can.

I can't tell you what might work that's why I linked the thread, you'll need to experiment.

It's no problem, easy to change back, BIOS has a nice GUI, but in order to press Ctrl Alt F6/F7 I also have to hold down Fn key, it's just awkward.
Anyway, it didn't work after suspending with lid, Ctrl Alt F6/F7 did not turn the display back on.

You are not understanding my meaning. this has nothing to do with BIOS key settings. When the laptop comes back on from suspend and the screen is black, press the key combination I gave you.

I did understand, and it didn't work!
Those keys do not turn the display back on after resume from a suspend/hibernate initiated from the lid switch.

Ok sorry, I reread your previous responses and see what you mean. Guess it was me that didn't understand! :oops:

Next time this happens, after you get back into the system open Logfile Viewer in Administration and look through the pm-suspend.log at the most recent entries. This should tell you what system components were re-initialized and which weren't. If the file is empty go to File | Open and select the pm-suspend.log file with the most recent date that isn't empty. Post the entries corresponding to the last suspend event back here.

There is a power led on the front of the laptop, maybe it's that.

No I don't think it's the screen, maybe the front LED but wouldn't worry about it. Unfortunately that log file doesn't really tell us anything other than suspend appears to be working fine as far as the system is concerned. Looking into this a little more it appears to be a fairly common issue on the current release and there is no single solution.

You could try adding acpi_backlight=vendor or radeon.modeset=0 to the kernel line after the quiet splash in the grub menu as a test. You could also try entering in a terminal pm-suspend or pm-suspend --quirk-radeon-off to see what happens. About the only other things I can suggest is to try uninstalling the ATI driver and reverting to the built in radeon driver as a test.

I removed the ATI driver from Hardware Drivers and it seems to have done the trick, closed the lid for a while, it suspended and I opened it and the screen came back on again. :)
Seems to be ATI's cruddy drivers!
I guess this is resolved, it'd be nice to have both working but I'll edit the title anyway, thanks remoulder.
