 Post subject: Resume from suspend with mouse movement?

I was wondering if there is a way to do this. I can do it on the XP machine we have for games, but that is the only OS I have ever seen it work on. I would really lie to be able to do it that way, rather than pushing the power button every time I want to come out of 'Suspend' mode.

Thanks.

***Casts necromancy***

It is my understanding that suspend / hibernate functions on laptops is an ongoing bugbear for a variety of reasons for a variety of users.

Was this particular issue ever solved? Is it still relevant to the OP? I'd like to close this but not before any bugs have been reported / tracked that need to be. Thanks.

This is for my desktop. I was just wondering if there was a way to do it, so that I could avoid wearing out my power button.

I have not found a way to do it. And I doubt it is a bug of any sort, because I have never done it with any other distro, either. The only computer I have ever seen it work on is my mom's desktop with XP SP3.

You can kill the thread if you want. I do not think there is a program or plug-in or anything that will allow me to resume from suspend with just a mouse movement or key press.

I have not been able to find anything that would fix this.

Given the replies I've put a to-do item in the list to get the bug status (I'm guessing this is definitely reported, for it is not the first time I've heard the bug), and will report back at that stage. I want to be satisfied that someone upstream is at least aware that this is an issue.

Forgive me for butting in here, but I think part of the problem is in the nomenclature. As I understand it, "Hibernate" puts everything on the hard drive and spins it down, then shuts down the power. You can't get the power back without the power button, so there's no choice with that.

"Suspend" is something I have never seen uniquely defined; some take it to mean Sleep (as in "Suspend to RAM"), others distinguish Suspend from Sleep, and make it sound more like hibernation but without the powerdown. I had that same kind of Suspend fletcher mentioned on my old XP SP3, where the mouse (or the famous Any key :lol: ) would wake it up. I suspect it was a modification of the Suspend to RAM type of Suspend, because it responded much faster than hibernation.

That's actually an excellent point, I hadn't really given much thought to the difference between "suspend" and "hibernate" but that makes a lot of sense.

This being the case, and if it pleases everyone else, I will close the thread in a few days since it seems that the problem's not a major cause of concern?
