R40 with ATI Mobility 7000 wont resume from suspend

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Fedora 18 / Mate. All fully up to date. Thinkpad R40 with newest BIOS. ATI Mobility 7000 graphics. Can not get the machine to resume from suspend. Sometimes blank screen, other times lines down screen. Can't switch to a terminal. I tried xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy but it did not work. X would not start. I tried adding nomodeset to the boot parameters but again X would not start. Any ideas on how to fix this? If I can't get this machine to suspend, is there any way to disable the option in MATE? Thanks (HowTos)
