that was my problem. It was my video drivers. What release of the nvidia drivers are you using?

186.16 would not wake properly, as you described. Reinstalled 186.06 and worked fine.

Who are you talking to?

Also, my desktop has no hibernate, but sleep mode still encountered the same problem. Had to hard restart.... and it still isn't working!
Oh, nevermind it did. Just took longer. Hmmmm....

Thought so. I am looking now.
8.15.11.8585

So you are saying rollback to 8.01?

Thanks for the link. Could not find it on my own.

I don't know exactly what version was on there, but I am going to install the new drivers first, then test sleep mode. If still no success, then to the older one and try again.

Thats what I did. I tried the latest and ran in to the issue where it would not wake. Everything would be on but I had a black screen. I had to roll back for wake to work. Thats what I was trying to explain in this thread. Sorry! Some times I ramble.

I understood exactly what you meant. It was just that I had a weird driver name on there, so I just want to see if the latest will work for me. Don't thin they will, which is why I have the older one ready next.

LOL just booted Fedora 11 (looks really nice too) onto my laptop. FINALLY the wireless works! BUT MY KEYBOARD DIDNT!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Trying Ubuntu 9.04 now. Hopefully it will all work.

Well I got ubuntu all installed and I'm on it now! Yay!

No luck with the older driver though. Damn. Oh well.

Well instead of starting a new thread, I'll just add my name to "the list". Wake from sleep doesn't work on my newly installed RC 7100 OS. I haven't even checked what Nvidia driver version 7 installed.
