8.179. pm-utils

Updated pm-utils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The pm-utils packages contain a set of utilities and scripts for tasks related to power management.

Bug Fix

Previously, pm-utils did not support the Advanced Configuration and Power Interfaces (ACPI) S1 (Power on Suspend) power state. As a consequence, when BIOS supported the ACPI S3 (Suspend to RAM) power state but not the S1 power state, the "pm-suspend" command failed. This update introduces support for the S1 power state, and if the S3 power state is not supported by BIOS, pm-suspend now triggers the S1 power state.
Users of pm-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
