Dell laptop followup (Re: ASUS S5N and the 2.6.10-1.741_FC3 kernal and s3 sleep works

I will try your grub options, but I'm a bit concerned that I don't understand what they do.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 and I can do suspend to memory, but when I wake up the system and log out of X, then the screen is black. I can still type in commands, to shudown or startx, for example (but I have to go on faith while typing, because I can't see!).

Also, After I wake up the computer, the touchpad tap does not work any more. I can move the pointer with the touchpad, but tapping won't do.

Maybe the difference is the way I'm going to sleep. I've got this in /etc/acpi/actions/sleep.sh


# do not got to suspend mode if some command fails!
set -e

rmmodules () {
 if grep $mname /proc/modules ; then
   /sbin/rmmod $mname

# if network is up, shut it down!
if [ -f /var/lock/subsys/network ] ; then
  /sbin/service network stop

# remmod all problematic modules
#rmmodules tg3
rmmodules uhci_hcd
rmmodules ehci_hcd
rmmodules hci_usb
rmmodules ipw2100

echo mem > /sys/power/state

# after waking up, move to terminal 1, this give some time to graphic card to get into sane state
chvt 1
sleep 0.5
# change into gui terminal, graphic card is ok at this point
chvt 7

#load modules
/sbin/modprobe uhci_hcd
/sbin/modprobe ehci_hcd
/sbin/ifup eth1

In all previous FC3 kernels(724,681,667), it seemed to die when you woke
it up again.

Other random info about my setup:
- Asus S5N with the 210 bios update.

- Here's my entry in grub.conf:
title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.741_FC3)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.741_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
acpi_sleep=s3_bios pm=off vga=0x317 video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr splash=silent

- Heres the command I run to send the notebook to sleep:

# suspend-to-ram : Sends the machine to S3,
# performing some tasks before and after wakeup.


/usr/bin/killall synergyc

echo -e "3[1;31mInitiating suspend-to-ram 3[0m"

# Empty logfile
echo > /tmp/suspend.log

/etc/init.d/hotplug stop >> /tmp/suspend.log 2>&1
/etc/init.d/acpid stop >> /tmp/suspend.log 2>&1

# Go, sleep!
echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep

echo -e "3[1;32m... back 3[0m"

# http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3609
setpci -s 00:1f.0 f2.b=1

/etc/init.d/acpid start >> /tmp/suspend.log 2>&1 &
/etc/init.d/hotplug start >> /tmp/suspend.log 2>&1 &
Note: I don't claim to be the author of any of the code above. I just
dug it up from googling around the net.

Thanks people
