Description Andrew Cagney 2005-05-28 16:48:30 UTC
Given PowerBook3,2 + 2.6.11-1.1363_FC4, shutting the lid correctly sends the
machine to sleep.  However, when the lid is re-opened it wakes up (graphical
screen appears) only to instantly fall asleep again (power led goes to pulse
mode).  Clicking the power-switch repeats this cycle (wake up, go to sleep).

According to <Desktop> -> <System Settings> -> <Server Settings> -> <Services>
I'm running apmd[?].  When pbbuttonsd is running, the un-sleep is followed by a
freeze instead of a re-sleep.

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2005-05-28 17:09:42 UTC
What if you just run 'snooze -f'? Do this from a virtual console and report any
kernel output you see.

Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2005-05-28 18:13:47 UTC
(didn't quite get all the ducks in a row, this is with pbbuttonsd running)

Something like:

panic ... arch/ppc/kernel/traps.c:82 ... spinlock ... /traps.c:c03715a0 already
locked by traps.c/82 (Not tainted).

it then appears a few more times claiming that its going to reboot in 180
seconds,  instead just sits there.

Want it with apmd running instead?

Comment 3 Colin Charles 2005-05-31 08:04:07 UTC
How about apmud, as apmd on PPC isn't really what you want. Its in Extras, fwiw.

Comment 4 Andrew Cagney 2005-06-17 19:02:01 UTC
Turns out I'm running apmud.

Anyway, plugging in a USB device does make the m/c wake up.  DWMW2 also noticed
an upstream patch that likely fixes it (may get a chance to try).

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-06-27 23:15:15 UTC
Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done


Comment 6 Andrew Cagney 2005-07-01 14:27:21 UTC
Happens in FC4 (at least from memory).  The kernel 2.6.11-1.1383_FC5, pulled
from rawhide, does appear to work.

PS: It is possible to work around this waking the machine up: poke a USB device
into its USB port.

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 21:34:35 UTC
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
 If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]

Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.

If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..

mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak

Thank you.

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-09-30 06:47:53 UTC
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:

An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel ( As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.

Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.


Comment 9 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 19:55:10 UTC
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.

Comment 10 Dave Jones 2006-02-03 05:50:00 UTC
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
