Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

With my MSI LAPTOP PR310 I can't resume the computer after suspension or hibernation since Maverick. This problem wasn't in Lucid.

Also, if I unplugged the computer the system goes to hibernation, even if my battery it's fully charged. This problem WAS in Lucid Lynx, but I can't remember which workaround I used to solve it.

I need to add that this problem happens in a fresh install of maverick

unplugging workaround:

gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/gnome-power-manager/general/use_time_for_policy false

It worked like a charm, thanks!

Now it remains the other "little problem" :)

I'm the only one that has this problem?

What a difference with 460566? You filed that one against kernel.
I guess gnome-power-manager is wrong package.

Hi Konstantin. The difference with 460566 is that, in this new bug the system goes to sleep and in 460566 it didn't. The problem here is that I can't resume.

I'm not sure if the package is the kernel or the gnome-power-manager. In that situation (460566) the bug was automatically generated (when I restarted the computer, the system had a sign saying that there was a problem), so I didn't have to choose the package.

GOOD NEWS: this problem has magically disappeared (I guess, after some update). It doesn't resume the 100% of the times, but it is working good enough. You can close this if you want.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.

Well, I changed my computer, so I can't be sure. The resume problem has disappeared. The unplugging problem was fine using the workaround.
