Well, this has inspired me to try for S3 again....

My main frontend is built on a pretty solid Foxconn mobo and has a SCSI 
drive.  (Seemed like a good idea at the time...)

The SCSI subsystem seems to be the headache for S3.

Basically, the SCSI subsystem needs a bus reset on boot.  I can reset it 
just fine with sg_reset - but that utility is not accessible without 
resetting the scsi bus.

So the controller goes through its 30 seconds of trying to revive the 
scsi device before it finally issues a SCSI RESET, then sg_reset becomes 
available and immediately resets the bus again....


So, any way to reset a sym53c8xx via proc?

Something I can do immediately on wakeup without having to have the 
drive mounted?
