Installed fedora 19 on a dell laptop. Everything works fine, except system cannot hibernate or restart. It just hangs up.

does it hang on the "shutting down" part, or on the "booting up" part?

Do you have any error reported in the log files, you can find them under /var/log/ or with the command journalctl -b

No error reported in log files. When I restart the system, it just shows the log from the time that session started.

I am using the KDE desktop. It has four options: sleep, hibernate, shut down, and restart. Sleep and shut down buttons work fine. When I press restart, the messages the system gives are:

From your last error message, it looks like a mei module issue. The kernel team is tracking known issues with the mei kernel modules. Please follow the bug below. They do have a few work arounds too.

This is not fedora specific. It's a regression introduced by mei upstream who are aware of it and are working on a fix already, as you'll understand from the comments in the bug report.

(As a rule, it's good to search bugzilla when you run into a new issue. The chances are that someone already ran into it and was kind enough to file a bug. If a bug isn't filed already, you should go ahead and do it.)

Try changing BIOS settings. There should be something like


And you need to change it to AHCI.

At least that worked for my Dell D630.
