[Bug 1056472] Re: Slow Resume with Crucial M4 SSD


Carlos Moffat, as per http://download.lenovo.com/express/ddfm.html an
update is available for your BIOS (1.38). If you update to this
following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Thank you for your understanding.

  Slow Resume with Crucial M4 SSD

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I have a Crucial M4 512 GB SSD installed on my Thinkpad X220 (Ubuntu
  Precise). Overall this runs very nicely, but it takes 10+ seconds to
  resume from suspend, apparently because some issue with the hardrive.
  The only message I see while resuming is "COMRESET failed

  The only relevant post I've found was in the crucial support site:


  which suggested adding libata.force=nohrst as a boot option to get rid
  of the problem.

  I tried that, but the laptop wouldn't suspend. I have been running
  recent mainline kernels, up to and including the 3.6-rc7 and the
  problem persists. Peter Petrakis suggested I test how long it takes to
  resume in Windows 7. It takes 3-5 seconds there, versus 12-14 in
  Ubuntu. The SSD has up to date Firmware (010G) and the thinkpad is
  running the latest Bios.
