I am using KDE. I have a T43 that I have set to suspend to Ram when I close the lid (under the power management of system settings). When I close the lid, the fan continues to run and the system does not suspend. When I open the lid, it appears to be in a "screen lock" mode. I enter the password and the system comes back to life. When I manually do a suspend to Ram, this works fine. If I close the lid after a manual suspend, and then open the lid, the system comes back fine also.
Any ideas why the closing of the lid does not suspend? I have also tried using suspend to disk with the same results.
