[Bug 1510779] Re: [Dell Latitude E5250] Unable to complete the hibernate stress test


Po-Hsu Lin, as per http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-
support/product/latitude-e5250-laptop/drivers/advanced an update to your
computer's buggy and outdated BIOS is available (A10). If you update to
this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it
change anything?

Once the BIOS is updated, if the problem is still reproducible:
1) Please provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
2) Please make a comment specifically advising on if there was an improvement or not.
3) Please mark this report Status New. If it's not reproducible, please mark this as Invalid.

Thank you for your understanding.

  1. Install 14.04.3 + update (3.19.0-31)
  2. Install the certification suite
  3. Test it with hibernate 30 cycle stress test
  or run the following command for 30 times:
  fwts -q --stdout-summary -r ./hibernate_30_cycles s4 --s4-device-check --s4-device-check-delay 45 --s4-sleep-delay 120

  * It can pass the 30 cycle hibernate stress test.

  Actual result:
  * System will freeze on some point, in the most recent test, it freeze on the 9th cycle.

   s4: Failed to freeze remaining non-user space processes.
   s4: Failed to freeze devices.
