Suspending and resuming

He noted that the XGL had problems after suspending and resuming. I have experienced the same problem with Vista on my MacBook (I have given Microsoft 8GB of my HD). Sometimes after resuming, the transparency etc. doesn't work. It's back again after restart.. Maybe they should cooperate to find a solution.

I had this problem with my laptop as well (with Edgy)...I solved it with a script that stops and starts Beryl as a service, then added that service to the list of services to stop in the suspend configuration file. A less than ideal solution.

This seems to be something for the Beryl/Compiz teams...I doubt that they'll get much cooperation from Microsoft though (in any case I imagine the reasons this happens on Vista is quite different than for Beryl...).

I used to have issues suspending and resuming with Beryl or compiz - but with recent Beryl builds on AIGLX it works nicely. I guess that isn't an option for this guy though since he's stuck on XGL.

On that note, I didn't realise fglrx doesn't do composite. What are ATi's driver team doing? I thought they said some time back that they were going to make more of a push towards doing decent Linux drivers - not supporting composite is a joke.
