Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

I've got two HP Compaq nx6110 laptops, both installed from 9.10 release candidate and now running the final Karmic. On a fresh install, both laptops suspended, hibernated and resumed happily. I've since installed wicd and acpitool on one of the laptops and it no longer suspends or hibernates - it just hangs on a blank (but backlit) screen, power light not switching off - i.e. not entering sleep state.

With the exception of wicd replacing NetworkManager on one of the laptops they're pretty much identical.

How can I debug whether wicd is the culprit and/or whatever else I might have done to this system to break suspend? My only other alternative is to re-install from scratch again...

"Randomly" suspend worked again on the affected laptop when connected via a usb wifi stick instead of the built-in broadcom card.

As I am also affected (probably) by https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/435352 I will continue my investigations and report back once Bug #435352 is solved.
