Hi Valdis,
Actually i am trying to understand linux kernel power management stuff,what i am trying to do is simply i want my lcd light never go into sleep state, without bothering about whether my system is in freeze state or S2RAM state simply kind of resume/suspend mechanism as i am very new to linux pm i need bit info about it.

i am checking following but i didnt find any clue

$ grep  . /sys/class/wakeup/wakeup*/device/power/wakeup

What use will the lcd backlight be when your graphics subsystem is powered down?

And unless your wifi supports wake-on-lan, leaving it active won't do anything, because
