Hi,

Running 2.14 on my old laptop and it works great!

I have previously tried Xubuntu, Icewm, Enlightenment and Elive and some of them have had a nice working Suspend to ram functionctionality working out of the box!

I have tried to search this forum and use scripts and hints - Suspend into might work bbbut resume results in complete darkness and the need for a "forced" reboot... Confused

Is there a Puppy flavour with a working Suspend to ram?

Regards

Martin

Not that I am aware of . . .

Is there any Linux software that does this that could be compiled?

A good idea would be "Puppy Laptop"
Who is up for it?

As soon as we have a PC in a phone, we might have Puppy phone Cool

If I remember right Xubuntu does it, also Enlightenment (E17) on top of Xubuntu Server does it.

Yes - for a laptop (and also on server used for every day use) it is the way to go - waiting for applications to start up is not that thrilling... Rolling Eyes

When you come out of "suspend" that you found for puppy and it was black, did you try ctrl + alt + backspace?

Ctrl + Alt + backspace did nothing, it seems like there is no connection with the keyboard at all - toggling Caps Lock does not put on the led for an example.

Making the laptop go to sleep can be achieved in many ways - one is the script from this Puppy thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1045443840&t=14467. To wake it up seems harder...

In other distros the acpi (or apm) directories have been installed/implemented, I don know if that might be a clue...???

Yes it would be a good idea to have a puppy-laptop.sfs with all goodies for suspend, hibernate, monitoring support.

menu.lst;

kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 ro acpi=force vga=0


I might add that at resume when I open the lid or press the power on button the hard disk turns on, the screen flashes and turn s black and the keyboard is "disconnected" - only a violent power off helps...

I don't know if this information is of any use for you, but just for the record:

I tried the built-in key combination on my vintage laptop (Fn-Esc) - and it suspended to RAM just like that! Very Happy Plus, it seems to wake up very reliably, much more so than Win98.

(Fn-Esc) does not work either.

Is there anyone having the APM or ACPI functionality working for Suspend / Resume...???

I don't know if it works (not having tested it), but the screenshots of Rudy 2.14 have a suspend shortcut on the desktop. Maybe check with the makers of that derivative, to see if it works there?

I'm on 2.12 (Muppy007) on a 1GB RAM Toshiba Satellite laptop.

I can suspend and resume successfully if I don't have many programs open. I have noticed that if I suspend for a long time, resume is inconsistent. Sometimes I have to do the ctrl-alt-f3 thing, but not often.

I tried some of the suspend scripts from users in the forum, but also waking up wasn't consistently successful.

I think the problem has something to do with the X session. I just haven't tested it, but I will. Probably if I kill X and suspend, resume will be consistent.

It still stinks to have to have to re-launch programs. I haven't booted Windows for months, but this weekend I did and the resume from suspend/hibernation made me really want something as consistent in my primary OS.

Bug-free suspend and resume is high on my wish list. Wish I were skilled enough to figure it out.
