Subject description: [Solved - for my setup at least]
 

When I started using Puppy on my laptop (IBM Thinkpad X31) last year, I orginally tried out Wary but in the end settled on using Slacko (5.3.3), which has worked pretty well for me ever since.

One of the reasons I stopped using Wary was because I couldn't get the sleep function to work properly. The laptop would go into sleep mode after closing the lid, but wouldn't 'wake up' again when reopening it. After spending a lot of time trying to fix this (ACPI, etc) I just gave up and started using Slacko 5.3.3 instead, which doesn't have this problem.

When Slacko 5.4 was released I eagerly tried it out only to find out that unfortunately it has the same problem (with my my laptop) as Wary does. As I couldn't be bothered spending loads of time trying to find the solution again, I decided to just stick with Slacko 5.3.3 for the time being...

Now, I've just tried out Slacko 5.5 hoping that this problem might have disappeared with the newer version, but sadly nope...

Does anyone know what Slacko 5.4 and 5.5 have in common with Wary, but not with Slacko 5.3.3 with regard to laptop sleep functions? I did post about this before in a bugs thread but didn't get a reply, but was hoping some clever person here might know Wink.

Thanks!

Sorry looks like laptop support has come and gone, Ive have had same type of failure with puppylinux and the woof builds for a year. Does not seem too much interest by developers to fix this. Mad

I found a version of quirky from a year or two ago still sleeps and wakes without cooking my notebook during use.

Wish I could find a solution to this as I'm basically stuck with Slacko 5.3.3 until I do... Confused

Did you try a quick push on the power button after
lifting the lid?

I have the same problem as the OP, neither lid close or power puts lappy to sleep (lenovo t60 & t500)

pressing the power button causes it to go through the motions but doesn't actually sleep, 5.3.3 works ok and I think from memory 5.4 did also but could be mistaken

Put this in /root/Startup & make sure it's executable, then reboot.

**edit - sorry folks uploaded an old zip, which had a missing 'fi'. This is the working version.

Unzip the attached to /usr/bin, ensure executable, then make a desktop icon.
Clicking the icon should suspend after 1 sec, requiring either a lid close then open, or just a power button push, to resume.

Suspbase doesn't work on my Dell laptop Inspiron 2200 running Slacko 5.5. When it goes to sleep I have to long-press power button to shutdown and then press power button to re-boot, after which it indicates improper shutdown and goes through some fixes while booting.

When I tried the susplid option it wouldn't start at all and I had to boot from CD and then delete the susplid file to get it to boot normally.

I have Slacko 5.5 installed to the hard drive.

Sounds like Dells need some other solution. I have a Toshiba Pentium Dual Core & these scripts also work with HP & Compaq Celeron Dual Cores, and suspbase on a Lenovo. My Samsung netbook has 'samsung-laptop' module loaded & a power button press is needed. Same results for my stuff with Racy 551.
