Suspend/Resume problems with Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) June 8, 2007

Posted by Mayank in nw8440, ubuntu.

I have been facing suspend/resume problems with Ubuntu 7.04. The Keyboard and touchpad lockup and do not respond after I resume back from a suspend.

After some research I came across a bug in launchpad.net.

When I tried one of the workaround suggested by Jeff Abbott over there, the keyboard and mouse started working.

The workaround was to plugin a usb keyboard after the resume and run the following commands:

sudo sh -c ‘echo -n “i8042” > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/unbind’
sudo sh -c ‘echo -n “i8042” > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/bind’

If this works for you too, then you can try creating a couple of scripts mentioned at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=361285&page=2

It works perfectly on my Compaq nw8440.

Haven’t found a fix for hibernate till now, still working on that.

Happy Ubuntu(ing)!
