I’ve got the nvidia proprietary video drivers running on my Fedora laptop using the rpmfusion-nonfree yum repo.

I also installed the akmod-nvidia package as it recompiles the kernel module for the graphics each time a new kernel is installed. Super!

However I’ve been battling with power suspend failing when slamming the lid on my laptop.. it hangs and won’t power off/restart without a nasty 10 sec power button press and hold.
I think I’ve finally figured the problem. It seems the kmod-nvidia- tries to install as well.

A bit of the following and all seems well in sleep world!

yum remove kmod-nvidia-

In /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.repo add this line beneath the [rpmfusion-nonfree-updates] block

exclude=kmod-nvidia-*
