[Bug 1331077] Re: [Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E540] suspend/resume failure


Dan Andreșan, if one had read the instructions previously noted in #37,
one would know we don't do catchalls or dogpiles here on Launchpad. As
well, this bug report is the wrong venue for this discussion. Hence,
it's pretty simple, file a new report, or your problem and comments are
going to be ignored.

Thank you for your understanding.

Neelson, please do not mark this a duplicate of another report, or vice

  [Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E540] suspend/resume failure

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  suspend to RAM failed before it was completed:
  * fan was still on and
  * Fn-F1- & Fn-F4-status LEDs were still on (signifying muted speakers and microphone respectively)
  * nevertheless the general ThinkPad LED (the i's dot) (/proc/acpi/ibm/led 0) behaved like normal: slowly blinking, which normally means "I'm suspended to RAM."
  * however resume was impossible: wakeup failed through mouse clicks, various keyboard keys and combinations and also the power key, only a hard reset (5s or so holding down the power key) could bring it back to life

  Adding the kernel cmdline option acpi_sleep=nonvs was of no avail,

  I recently upgraded to a new BIOS v2.07 [1], I think the problem
  exists since then.

  I confirmed that this is definitely a BIOS issue. The last working BIOS is v1.61 [2], so the change was introduced by v2.07 [1]. Installing the latest v2.08 [3] does not fix this problem.

  So this is the changelog for v2.07 [1]:
  - (Fix) Fixed an issue that system will auto wakeup after shutdown when battery capacity is under 15% on DC only.
  - (Fix) Fixed an issue related to APS.
  - (New) Added support for new GPU config.

  By the way, I could not find a new GPU config option in the BIOS, same
  old choice <Integrated> vs. <Optimus>, nothing new.
