Config Notes
Power Management: Updated PLDP-compliant video.ko driver from http://drivers.suse.com/driver-process/staging/pub/update/novell/sle11sp1/i586/ is required for correct S3 functionality.
Graphics: Video driver used in testing is PLDP-compliant and may be installed by adding http://www2.ati.com/suse/hp/hpws/sle11sp1 as an Add-On Product.
Function Keys: Brightness control function keys do not change display panel brightness.
Power Management: xhci module (for USB 3.0) is experimental and prevents resume from S3/S4 states. Suggested solution: prevent loading of xhci by adding the line "blacklist xhci" to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file. If the xhci module is needed, it may be force-unloaded when entering S3/S4 by specifying SUSPEND_MODULES="xhci" in a file under /etc/pm/config.d. Any USB 3.0 devices should be unmounted before force-unloading the xhci module.
