Try unloading as many drivers as possible (starting with hci_usb and
then the USB host drivers) before you suspend. See if you can persuade
it to work, and find which the offending driver is.
sorry for the blackout period. I've upgraded to the latest and greatest
this morning ( 2.6.17-1.2145_FC5 ) and noticed that the problem is still
However, the symptoms have changed a bit : When i close the lid, the
machine goes to sleep ( bliking led etc ...), but when i open the lid, i
hear the hard drive coming back to life and nothing more, the screen
stays black and my only solution is to do a hard reboot.
I've tried unloading as many modules as possible and i came down to this
shortlist, with no success :

looking at the logs here's what i get:
Jul 6 11:04:33 kaluha pmud: lid closed: request sleep
Jul 6 11:04:33 kaluha pmud: running /etc/power/pwrctl sleep battery
Jul 6 11:04:33 kaluha pwrctl: calling /etc/power/pwrctl-local sleep battery
Jul 6 11:04:33 kaluha pwrctl-local: sleep battery
Jul 6 11:04:33 kaluha pmud: going to sleep
Jul 6 11:08:16 kaluha syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
The last message is from the reboot, there's no sign of things happening
when i open the lid, aside from the noise made by the hard drive coming
back to life.
Is there anything else i can do to help pinpoint the problem ?
Thanks for your help.
PS: 2.6.16-1.2133_FC5 still works like a charm .....
