This case verifies that the host can successfully suspend and resume while KVM guest(s) are operational.

How to test

First, verify that your host machine is able to suspend/resume by executing:

echo mem > /sys/power/state

Or your preferred method (closing the lid of your laptop, for instance).

If this works:

  1. start a KVM guest
  2. login in to it
  3. start your preferred stress application (eg: find /)
  4. attempt to suspend/resume the host while the stress application runs

Expected Results

  1. The running KVM guest should not interfere with the suspend/resume operation.
  2. In case of apparent problems, please once again confirm that your machine is able to suspend/resume without a KVM guest.
