One of the bugs had a link to a suspend/resume debugging guide, this page:


I turned on pm_trace and did a suspend/resume and the resume worked.  The
time was way off (the pm_trace uses the RTC area). I turned *off*
pm_trace, and resume still worked, weird!

It's now worked everytime, resume had *never* worked on this laptop before.
I didn't try using the nv (non-nvidia binary) driver.

For my T61 product 6460DUU (I'm not sure what the last three digits mean)
I patched:


Similar to that mentioned in a fedoraforum post, and pm-suspend with no
arguments and kpowersave suspend-to-ram worked.

Patch is:
