Your T400/T500/T410/T510 not suspending/hibernating under Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat? Fix.

If your trusty Lenovo T[45][01]0 does not want to suspend/hibernate under Ubuntu 10.10, but just seems to do it and then comes back right away, blacklist a bunch of modules editing /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:

# suggested blacklist to fix lenovo suspend failure. lambertdw
blacklist parport
blacklist parport_pc
blacklist ppdev
blacklist lp
blacklist tpm_tis

Alternatively, just rmmod them for testing purposes (thanks to lambertdw). Offending module for me was tpm_tis, which handles the Trusted Platform Module. I don’t need it anyway. Supposedly this should be fixed in kernels >= 2.6.36.
