Yes, the fan still stays on, but the PWM will be smaller(will be put
into the smallest level(1, the other two 2, 3)).

It's "dangerous" to turn off the fan totally for currently, when netbook
stays in suspend status(not really suspend to RAM, some other devices
can not be powered off for the whole machine have only one unified power
supply), there is about 4 or 5 W of power consumption left, so, we do
not turn off the fan, just put its PWM into the smallest level to ensure
the machine not be broken. In the future revision of YeeLoong, the power
supply of it should be redesigned to implement the real STR, then we may
turn of the fan totally.

Which version of NetworkManager are you using? you should use the one >=

It really says "network is disabled"(a "weird" action for we have
reported the blocked status into user-space when suspending but this
time, the user-space will not report it for the applications have been
freezed when suspending, the report will be delayed to resuming, I will
fix this problem later, thanks!) but then it should try to resume the
wifi and will resume it after 2-4 seconds. so, I guess you are using the
wrong NetworkManager.
