Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Under Hardy.

I'v set gnome-power-manager to go to sleep when lid is closed.

First time i close the LID, notebook go to sleep and wake up on open lid.
After that, nothing happen if i close again the LID.

I can put notebook on sleep with the red power button (on right top menu)

After that, closing LID working again, just one time ;) the second time nothing append again.

Please try the latest openchrome version.

Maybe this bug is similar to this one:

I do not use openchrome

Openchrome it is driver for your graphic card Chrome9.

Could you also please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log

My card is an ATI.

I confirm this bug on a fresh install of 9.04 and attach files wanted.

Bartosz, anyway patch from Openchrome's ticket 288 doesn't solve sleep problem even on Chrome9 system. So I think it isn't openchrome-related.

This looks to me as a [the] problem with the kernels "button" ACPI driver. If not reloaded on suspend/resume it will stop emiting events.

I always "rmmod button" on suspend, and then "modprobe button" after resume.

If this is really the issue can be confirmed by:
 - booting in single user mode
 - cat /proc/acpi/event
 - close/open the lid, event's should show up
 - suspend (echo mem > /sys/power/state)
 - resume (press the power button)
 - cat /proc/acpi/event is still running, if not, run it again.
 - close/open the lid, event's will not show up

I can confirm this still happens.
On my case, I have a Toshiba L40-18L laptop and cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state reports closed only the first time I close it, the next times it doesn't work (always reports open).

I'm using ubuntu 11.10
