greetings! I have installed David Hare's exe package on a new-ish Acer Aspire 725-0802 with AMD dual-core processor. I had some hiccups but things seem settled for the most part though I'm not through quite yet! anyway, I got hibernate/resume to work, almost. it resumes nicely except for the usb drives. what definitely doesn't reload is xhci. there apparently is a usb 3.0 port here and I can't figure out how to get it to wake up automagically after hibernate. dmesg says something about 'timeout while waiting for a slot' with respect to xhci_hcd. I have wrestled things to a certain point where if I resume and run the following, I get a port: sudo /sbin/modprobe -r xhci sudo /sbin/modprobe xhci so either I would like to do without this expedient or I would like to get resume to run it for me. to get suspend working, I set up the disk to resume in initramifs and in fstab. I don't have any other suspend tools installed to my knowledge. I am also uneasy with this setup because it doesn't seem like safe practices; I think the kernel is complaining about missing pages. not sure of this yet.
