Camera stops working on my laptop after suspend and wake. I have to restart to get it back. When listing the /dev/ directory there is no /dev/video after wake. Is there a way to get it back without restarting since I practically use suspend instead shutdown?

Suspend/wake events are handled by the pm-utils package. See my answer Why is wireless down/strange after switching to battery or closing/opening the lid?, but change "wireless" to "video" or "camera", as needed.

Thanks. I'll accept/upvote the answer in next few days if I see that the problem is not reoccurring. –  enedene Jun 13 '12 at 17:18
    
Unfortunately the /dev/video0 still disappears. –  enedene Jun 14 '12 at 22:37
