--- Comment #5 from D <djtm at gmx.net> ---
Taking back the last comment, works also with hibernation via pm-hibernate
(Ubuntu 12.04).
- Even hibernation only resumes with an active display when booting with kernel
parameters nomodeset vga=0. Then I load radeon with modeset=1. (e.g. via

- freeze > /sys/power/state also does not work.

- radeontool (git) finds some registers are different after resume: (after on
top, before in second line)

- radeontool light on/off never has any effect on my system.

- avivotool finds that D1CRTC is Disabled after resume.

- There is a warning in dmesg regarding brightness query:
ACPI: No _BQC method, cannot determine initial brightness

- The display is always turned off already during suspend, and simply never
returns from there. Hibernation only works, because the BIOS turns the display
back on. Without the radeon driver and kms active, as stated above, the quirks
help the display of wake up again.
