Default Re: Is hibernate fixed with new (9629) nVIDIA drivers?

I have a sony vaio laptop with GeForce 6200Go card and genuine nvidia drivers installed (gentoo ebuild)

Since the 9629 version, suspend to ram is broken. The computer goes to suspend but when waking up it ends with a black screen and keyboard freeze. Surprisingly, sometimes it is possible to shut down the system with the PWR button.

This remembers me the very earlier versions of the drivers that did not support suspend to ram.

For now i use the earlier 8776 version which works fine, even suspend to ram.

Note : i do suspend to ram via KPowersave (which uses the powersaved daemon) or simply by : echo mem > /sys/power/state

Hope this will be fixed.
