I have a new Sandy Bridge i5-2500 and Intel H67 motherboard. As the onboard video didn't work, I put in an older 8600 gts graphics card. However, the S3 suspend won't work (and I can't test without the dedicated card). I've had this experience with all other desktops (all of which have nvidia cards).
Any help diagnosing what might be the problem would be appreciated. I've been trying a few s2ram parameters at en.opensuse.org/SDB:Suspend_to_RAM, but this is very time consuming and so far fruitless. Namely,
- Of course, if you have experience with a H67 or P67 motherboard, that would be most useful.
- If you have owned Intel desktop motherboards, how often does S3 work?
- same with nVidia graphics cards
- Does the power supply ever make a difference?
