T43 with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator

My T43 (1871-FYG) with Intel 915GM is also affected by the problem and the 'ATI' sollution with acpi_sleep=s3_bios works. Please consider updating the page (I don't dare to do it myself).

From my experience, this does not work with TP R50e.

If you want to be able to resume, you need :

  • To start from a VT
  • No option acpi_sleep
  • to save the PCI state like:
cat /proc/bus/pci/00/02.0 > /var/cache/video.config
  • Once you get back, restore it:
cat /var/cache/video.config > /proc/bus/pci/00/02.0

However, the X screen is not clean after the restore, so this is not very useable...

The comment on R50e

There is a comment at the end of the page on R50e, saying that you should switch to console first, and look at a page to learn how to do this.

However. it seems to me that the given script already does it. Should the comment be removed?

The scripts are different. However, if you can approve that the solution provided on this page resolves the problem, please remove the footnote.

On my R50e, the script on this page works fine, while the one linked in the footnote quickly wakes up from sleep.
