Suspend with T60 and Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10)

Finally, today my suspend to disk is working again after almost one year !!!! (I’m upgrade to 7.10 before it released)

Here’s what you need to do that (again). First you need newest ATI driver, you can get it from here (howto included). Install and configure it. Then you need to tweak some configuration.

/etc/default/acpi-support
SAVE_VBE_STATE=false
POST_VIDEO=false

And disable atieventsd

/usr/sbin/update-rc.d -f atieventsd remove

Reboot and now you can suspend again.
FYI I’m using s2disk to suspend.

  1. Cool ! I wonder if the new driver also improve the external VGA connection to LCD Projector….. the older driver always gives me headache (I’m using Lenovo T60 with ATI driver), since some lcd projector brand refuse to work with the older ATI driver.
