Default 285.05.09 Suspend-to-RAM problems

I upgraded to 285.05.09 and now Suspend-to-RAM (S3) fails every time. It appears that the OS performs all of the shutdown duties successfully -- as there are no errors in the PM logs and the final suspend statement is logged -- however the machine never powers off. I can't ssh into the machine. I have to use the reset switch to restart the computer.

Under previous driver versions this issue only occurred about once or twice a month. Under 285.05.09 it occurs every time. I rolled back to 280.13 and STR works again.

If anyone can help me figure out how to troubleshoot this one, I would appreciate it. I have attached a bug report log, but I don't know if it's much help.

GPU: GeForce 7950 GX2
Chipset: nvidia nForce2
Kernel: 2.6.35-30-generic #60 (Ubuntu 10.10) x86_64
X Server: 1.9.0


I have never had any suspend problems with any drivers, including 285.05.09, on the following system:

GPU: GeForce GTX 570
Chipset: Intel H55
Kernel: 2.6.38-11-generic #50 (Ubuntu 11.04) x86_64
X Server: 1.10.1

Thanks for any ideas,
John

artem,

Thanks for the reply and for getting me started in the right direction. I was able to determine from the kernel log that the device giving the problem (or recorded in the log) is "PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation Device 01b3 (rev a3)". The two devices attached to this PCI bridge are GPU0 and GPU1.

I guess I'll try to remove the nvidia module on suspend and reload it on resume.

I have tried killing X, GDM etc. and it suspends without a problem when X isn't up (though the display doesn't come back up on resume).

John

meh i've given up on this for now and just rolled back to 280.13. I tried the latest beta (285.whatever) on XP and suspend works fine... so maybe it'll fix itself whenever I get a newer kernel version.

it's stuff like this that just pisses me off

Do you have virtualbox installed?

No, not on this box. No old-school AGP drivers either.

It's either a motherboard driver or the video driver I'm thinking. Lots of problems on teh google relating to ASUS A8N series motherboards, but many more with the binary nvidia driver.

Though most of the problems I see are about not being able to resume.

I've the same problem. While STR works fine with 280.13, both 285.05.09 and 290.06 beta don't power down completely when suspending - requiring a filesystem check and/or a RAID rebuilt on next boot

BTW: The system is dual seat, i.e. two X servers running on two graphics cards for two users.

Same problem here, also with 290.10. Only 280.13 suspends properly for me. BTW, how can I track the NVIDIA bug # below ?

Thanks for the heads-up. I gave it a try and indeed it is working again for me as well.

And thanks to the nvidia devs for fixing this.
