Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2007-04-11 17:14:30 UTC
What does "gnome-power-manager --verbose --no-daemon" print when you shut the
lid? Thanks.

Comment 2 Marius Andreiana 2007-04-11 17:26:23 UTC
Created attachment 152293 [details]

It actually seems it only blanks the display, but it fails to turn it back on,
so I need to restart.

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2007-05-14 09:12:36 UTC
Ahh, it actually uses DPMS to turn the screen off (to avoid melting some models)
when you shut the lid - does "xset dpms force off" also make your system hang?

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 00:02:46 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:28:14 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
