Mandriva 2005 LE

Suspend/Resume

Mandriva controls suspend/resume preferences through the file /etc/sysconfig/suspend. It is a well-commented text file. Here are two options I set that seemed to help make sound continue working after a suspend on the T20:

RESTORE_SOUND="yes"
SOUND_MODULES="sb uart401 sound soundcore maestro cs4281 snd-cs46xx"

I'm not sure if all the sound modules in this list are necessary. I added snd-cs46xx to the list because I knew it was the one I was using.

From the Mandrake Control Center, I configured one specific Thinkpad-specific option for the sound driver. I entered the "Hardware" area and then selected the sound card and clicked "Configure Module". One of the options is labeled simply "thinkpad". I set it to "1".

Screen Locking after Suspend

My screen always came back locked after I suspended, and I couldn't figure out how to turn that off at first. That preference is also in /etc/sysconfig/suspend and is named LOCK_XFREE.

I set it to "no", but can still lock the screen if I want by using the Klaptop "Lock & Suspend..." option
