Re: FC6 and laptop suspend/resume: should be a high priority bug

There are plenty of reports like this in bugzilla.redhat.com.  My
opinion is that FC6 should not be released as final until the problem
is addressed.  What do you think?


I would like to start testing suspend/resume in Rawhide but I have to confess that I am at the very beginning. I've discerned from googling that it is still pretty much a script based feature, i.e. one must write scripts to have your laptop suspend or hibernate and then associate those scripts with events. This is somewhat shocking to me. I expected that a distro would automagically configure a system to DTRT from the getgo. At least do something like what XP does. Au contraire apparently. Is there any reference material available to read so that I might be a little more intelligent and helpful in testing suspend/resume functionality?

And to address Paul's question, FWIW: it doesn't much matter to me when good laptop support is in FC, just that it gets in and stays in. It certainly does appear to be long overdue functionality.

Thanks,
