Suspend / Resume and Power Off not working properly on the Intel/Haswell video based Acer Aspire S7 laptop ...


I have an Acer Aspire S7 laptop on which I installed Fedora 19 64bit.

It's running kernel version: 3.11.6-201 (64 bit), but the below problem has existed in prior kernel versions, too.

As mentioned in the subject line, Suspend / Resume and Power Off do not not work properly on this Intel / Haswell video based laptop.

Specifically, I can't get the following things to work properly on this laptop:

Suspend/Resume & Hibernate/Resume doesn't work:

The laptop doesn't properly resume from Sleep or Hibernate modes. The screen
stays black (i.e. resumption of video does not happen). I can, however, ssh
into the laptop and interact with it (including rebooting it).

Also, after Sleep/Hibernate and Resume, when I press and release the power button
(to try to trigger a shutdown because there's nothing else I can do at this  
point), it too to no longer responds. Press / release of the power button
works fine otherwise.

So I basically have to press and hold the power button to power off the laptop.

Power Off of laptop doesn't happen after "init 0".

When I shutdown the O/S gracefully (either executing init 0, or press/releasing the
power button when ths O/S is properly running), Fedora shuts down gracefully but does
now power off the laptop. This, despite acpid running (maybe I don't have it
configured properly).

To help, here is 'lspci' output for this laptop, with even more verbose output provided in the PASTEBIN URL that follows:

user$ sudo lspci

It's a bummer to have to power down / up the laptop constantly because of this (instead of Sleep/Hibernate resume).

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
