Bug Description

Analysis from Alberto Milone:

Unity currently relies on Logind to emit a "PrepareForSleep" event when entering S3. I'm wondering if using fwts (which in turn calls pm-suspend) prevents Logind from emitting the event.

I've discussed this with Martin Pitt and what I suggested is correct.

The solution is to actually fix fwts to call logind to suspend instead of using pm-suspend directly.


For details please refer to bug 1332411.

according to Franz, we were lucky in the morning to re-produce the issue easily, but it's gone now... We have done some simple tests, with fglrx the issue can be easily re-produced under text mode.

This is fixed in FWTS version 14.07.00, at least for the S3 use case.
