    "suspend" on HP Pavilion g6

    On HP Pavilion g6, the screen remains blank after waking from a "suspend" (in the LXDE Logout menu), and a hard reboot is the only way out of the jam. Given that the boot option 'nomodeset' is required for the video to work in the first place on this notebook (the video doesn't work otherwise), is the blank screen after suspend+wake related to the nomodeset option? Is there any way around it?

    Thanks in advance for any information/ help.

    For want of real solution(s), a kludge that works is (1) on a virtual console, as root enter "init 3" (runlevel 3, w/o X) (2) "logout: on X windows (3) on a virtual console, as root enter "pm-suspend" (4) after 'resume', on a vc as root enter "init 5" (runlevel 5, to start X) For myself this helps in situations where I could logout of X but would not want a reboot. PS - This is for Knoppix 7.0.5 and the bios for the hp g6 is Insyde version F.17 (release date 11/02/2012).

    A slightly less cumbersome sequence for the 'suspend' (switching to virtual console only once, after all X11 applications are closed): [1] (as before) switch to a vc, as root, enter 'init 3' [2] enter '/etc/init.d/knoppix-startx stop' [3] (as before) enter 'pm-suspend'
