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



I have never successfully gotten a dell laptop to suspend 100% of the
time with any linux kernel.

Either the screen stays dead or the hard drive won't spin up on wake,
etc...

It's a Dell dude!

And I use this one daily. Nice laptop, but suspend is iffy at best.
