HP Compaq 8510w: Fan is running constantly in high speed after resume from suspend to RAM

Bug #1520242 reported by Jarno Suni on 2015-11-26

linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

No proper reason for running at so high speed as there is not much CPU load. Product number of the notebook: GC114EA#AK8

WORKAROUND: Put following script in /etc/pm/sleep.d :
case "$1" in
                for i in $(seq 0 10) ;
                        echo "0" > /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device${i}/cur_state

In ubuntu 15.04 or later you may have to add this executable script in /lib/systemd/system-sleep/ :

case $1/$2 in
    for i in $(seq 0 10) ; do
      echo "0" > /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/cooling_device${i}/cur_state

Joseph Salisbury, how is this incomplete?

Jarno Suni, could you please provide the full computer model as noted on the sticker of the computer itself (not from the Bug Description)?

Jarno Suni, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available from the very top line at the top of the page from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/?C=N;O=D (the release names are irrelevant for testing, and please do not test the daily folder)? Install instructions are available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds . This will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue.

If the latest kernel did not allow you to test to the issue (ex. you couldn't boot into the OS) please make a comment in your report about this, and continue to test the next most recent kernel version until you can test to the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this issue is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon, next to the word Tags, located at the bottom of the report description:

Where X, and Y are the first two numbers of the kernel version, and Z is the release candidate number if it exists.

If the mainline kernel does not fix the issue, please add the following tags:

Please note, an error to install the kernel does not fit the criteria of kernel-bug-exists-upstream.

Once testing of the latest upstream kernel is complete, please mark this report's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results.

Thank you for your understanding.

I suspended using Suspend action button in Xfce GUI. Tried mainline kernel 4.4-rc5 with which bug exists.

I did two suspend-resume cycles. Dmesg after that is attached.

Jarno Suni, to advise, the suspend article has been completely revamped. Hence, could you please first test the latest mainline kernel (4.5) and advise to if this is still reproducible?

Jarno Suni (jarnos) wrote :

The bug is fixed in 4.5.0-040500-generic.

Jarno Suni (jarnos) wrote :

Please include the fix in the next Ubuntu release.

Jarno Suni, the next step is to fully reverse commit bisect from kernel 4.4-rc4 to 4.5 in order to identify the last bad commit, followed immediately by the first good one. Once this good commit has been identified, it may be reviewed for backporting. Could you please do this following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBisection#How_do_I_reverse_bisect_the_upstream_kernel.3F ?

Please note, finding adjacent kernel versions is not fully commit bisecting.

After the fix commit (not kernel version) has been identified, then please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.

Aren't there any comments connected to commits to give hint about what changes have been made? If I understood right, you tell me to do potentially several reboots with different kernels and build several kernels.
