It appears to be a regression in the Maverick (and Natty alpha) kernel... it was fine in Lucid.

Try adding:


as a kernel boot parameter.

BE AWARE - When using intel_idle.max_cstate=0 keep an eye on whether your netbook is getting hot during suspend... if it is... try a cstate with a higher value such as intel_idle.max_cstate=3 .. See below for explanation.

Further info:
Comments #115 onwards.


1.) Edit the /etc/default/grub file... in a terminal enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

2.) Find the line:
and change it to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=0"

3.) Save and exit gedit.

4.) Now update GRUB... back in the terminal enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub

5.) Reboot.

Also read comment #129 (onwards) on the above link.
for other working cstate options.

Some people say the following cstates work:


For an explanation of CSTATE's, and why higher is usually better for battery life... see here:

It would be VERY helpful for future readers if people would post which cstates work for which Samsung models... TIA :)
