Suspend does not work, fix?

Asked by Anton Kanishchev on 2012-05-05

Suspend does not work.

1- I click supend, it attempts to suspend and shuts off with the power button blinking-as it does normally when it suspended in windows.

2-however when it comes out of suspend it simply reboots- as in displays the vaio logo then goes to bootloader and then boots from hd-hd activity light on for 10-15 seconds and it eventually boots to login screen.

Any help in getting suspend to work will be much appreciated

Thanks in advance

What make and model system?

Can you give the output of:

free -m; sudo fdisk -l

Thanks

Have tried the suspend trick again---it seems that it it does save the state of ram and powers off-that i understand-- it also responds (wakes up) if a key is pressed so it is not truly off (looking at the screen only though it looks like a normal reboot). I am attaching the pm-suspend log:
