Bug Description

On Dell Inspiron E1505 with Nvidia GeForce Go 7300, a s2ram followed by a s2disk causes the screen to flicker endlessly when the system resumes from the s2disk. You have to manually restart the machine in order to bring it to a workable state.

Thank you for your bug report.

rez:
Are you using the nvidia binary drivers? If so could you include the output of
dpkg -l nvidia\* | grep ii
and upload your
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
file please?

Setting to needsinfo pending reply from rez.

I confirmed this on a 1505 also with 7300 but only with the nvidia 9755 driver. I think we need to come up with some way to work with nvidia on this issue. See if it's already been reported and link the bug reports.

rez, Ben:
Does using NvAGP "1" as described in Bug #34043 make any difference?

Setting NvAGP "1" does not work.
However, setting SAVE_VBE_STATE=false and POST_VIDEO=false does solve the problem for me..

(Ever so slightly related to Bug #14833 . Also mentioned in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaLaptopBinaryDriverSuspend but that also makes mention on NvAGP)

Same workaround for 100.14.19 driver on Gutsy (setting SAVE_VBE_STATE=false and POST_VIDEO=false in /etc/default/acpi-support).

Should the kernel version be changed to gutsy's?

Works with workaround.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

The 18 month support period for Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 has reached its end of life -

linux-restricted-modules-2.6.22 task. It would be helpful if you could test the
new Jaunty Jackalope 9.04 release and confirm if this issue remains -
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/904overview. If the issue still exists with the Jaunty
