I recently picked up a ASUS Laptop which has quad core AMD Sabine with ATI 6720g2 graphics. Due to the graphic chipset being latest, the existing Catalyst on Archimedes ISO doesn't install, however after pacman -Syu the newer Catalyst does install and run without any glitches. However suspend remains an issue unless and until latest 12.2 is installed.
How do I suspend? If I run pm-suspend as root suspend and recovery works great (it's quick) but there's no shortcut or icon that I can see. If I click on my username in the upper right corner I see Switch User, Logout, Lock and Power Off but nothing that indicates suspend.
Maybe something is running that is blocking suspend?
Me too, but I got annoyed by typing my password everytime I wanted to quickly suspend the system. I got the command mapped to the corresponding FN Keys on my Notebook aswell now, I'm just wondering why such a feature is not included in a stable Release? Anyway I'm glad I could help some of you
After a kernel update from 3.3.7-1 to 3.4.0-1, my AMD64 F17 desktop system will no longer resume from suspend. The keyboard has no effect. When I hit the power button, I can hear the disk spin up, but the system is still unresponsive. /var/log/pm-suspend.log shows a normal suspend, but nothing else ( a successful resume will start with an "Awake" entry after the last suspend entry).
