Description Ludovico Fischer 2007-11-29 14:14:33 UTC
I am using Ubuntu 7.10 on an iMac Intel Core2 (white) with a radeon x1600. Under Gnome 2.20, if I choose System>Quit>Suspend on the main menu bar, the screen becomes dark, but turns itself on automatically after about 40 seconds. Instead, it should turn itself on only after the user touches the keyboard or mouse. This did not happen with the fglrx driver. I am using the last git version available at the moment I write.

Comment 3 Egbert Eich 2007-12-18 14:57:09 UTC
System>Quit>Suspend should put the system in suspend mode where multiple hardware subsystems go into a dormant state, Can you confirm that this is really the case for the other subsystems?
Maybe the syspend doesn't succeed so that the system comes back to life after a while.
Can you check if this works when you do suspend from the console?
Comment 4 Ludovico Fischer 2007-12-18 16:45:32 UTC
I am testing 8.04 and the problem remains.
I'm afraid I am encountering difficulties at suspending from console.
/etc/acpi/sleep.sh does nothing
sudo echo -n mem> /sys/power/state gets 'permission denied'
sudo pm-suspend is the only thing that works, but there's not much of a log (see attachment).
Coul you suggest me a command to obtain the information you are looking for?

Comment 7 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2011-10-16 15:58:32 UTC
Does this issue occur with the preferred ati driver (xf86-vide-ati)?  If so, please move this to the Driver/Radeon component.  

Development of radeonhd has pretty much halted and development focus is on the ati driver.  Please see http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonhd

If the issue does not exist in the ati driver (or if there is no response to this message), this bug will be closed as WONTFIX unless someone contributes a patch.
Comment 8 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2011-11-07 15:08:37 UTC
Closing due to lack of response.  Please reopen and move to the Driver/Radeon 
component if this issue persists with xf86-video-ati
