Default Re: Blank screen on resume

I've used FreeBSD on three different laptops, none of them with nVidia GPUs, and none of them ever resumed from standby.

Seems like you've been unlucky with with your laptops, my previous laptops have worked just fine ( a old fujitsu s4546 and a thinkpad t61p )

I think that Linux is going down the same route as Windows, they implement workarounds for acpi/bios quirks. Fbsd is a bit stricter when it comes to the acpi-spec.

On a fbsd system use acpidump -dt > foo.asl and the iasl foo.asl to see if the thing is valid. I haven't yet seen a correct asl

My desktop came back from S3 since installing 256.44

Unfortunately, some graphical corruption around window borders forced me to reboot anyway. (Using compiz+emerald)

Nice, perhaps time to diverge from ports for a while

Perhaps I was a bit enthusiastic. It worked that one time, but subsequent tries yield only NVRM XID lines and a restarted X server.

256.xx have been fantastically stable aside from that, though.

I just installed 256.44 and have prior to this post performed 2 suspend-to-ram cycles There still are some freebsd specific issues to deal with, but the nVidia side seems to be working nicely now

A bit more testing reveals that a not inconsiderable amount of suspend-to-ram ends up haning the machine

Also using for example KDE4 with desktop effects tends to hang the machine just a tad to often ( perhaps once a day ). When running another WM the most reliable way to get a hang was starting/using OpenOffice

Is there any way to produce some debug info for this? Getting a dump seems impossible as the machine just hard locks.

Am I correct in assuming that the nvidia binary driver (which works well otherwise) is a huge obstacle in getting suspend/resume to work on freebsd boxes that have nvidia hardware?
