[invalid] Mint Cannot Resume From Sleep

Postby kewlkamon on Tue Jun 30, 2009 2:55 pm

I have an Asus F8Va-B1 laptop. I loaded Mint 7 with absolutely no issues. On a clean install, when I choose to put my system to sleep or hibernate, it successfully enters the low power state. When I attempt to resume, my laptop screen will light, and the login screen appears. Sometimes the login screen is missing text or all the buttons, but sometimes everything appears just fine. My cursor can move but my keyboard and mouse buttons appear to have no effect. I cannot pull up a command prompt. Issue occurs with both the default and proprietary ATI drivers.

Linux Mint 7 32bit
Asus F8Va-B1 Laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo 8400
AMD ATI HD 3650

Please let me know if I need to post any more information or system logs.
Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Sorry, I forgot to add that after testing, the same issue occurs with Ubuntu 9.04, but that it does not occur with Fedora 11, so it would appear that this is an issue specifically with the Ubuntu or Debian core.

Hope this helps.

I have resume problems also on my 64 bit nVidia system, but not the same symptoms.

Code: Select all
witr@balls ~ $ inxi -v 5
System:    Host balls Kernel 2.6.28-11-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Distro Linux Mint 7 Gloria - x64 Edition
CPU:       Quad core Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 (SMP) cache 4096 KB flags (sse3 nx lm vmx)
           Clock Speeds: (1) 1596.00 MHz (2) 1596.00 MHz (3) 1596.00 MHz (4) 1596.00 MHz
Graphics:  Card nVidia G94 [GeForce 9600 GT] X.Org 1.6.0 Res 1680x1050@50.0hz
           GLX Renderer GeForce 9600 GT/PCI/SSE2 GLX Version 3.0.0 NVIDIA 185.18.14
Audio:     Card Intel 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller driver HDA Intel
           Sound: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Version 1.0.18rc3
Network:   Card Intel 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection driver e1000e
Disks:     HDD Total Size: 1000.2GB (16.7% used) 1: ST31000333AS
Partition: ID:/ size: 38G used: 5.0G (14%) ID:/boot size: 177M used: 15M (9%) ID:/home size: 367G used: 151G (44%)
           ID:swap-1 size: 20.48GB used: 0.00GB (0%)
Info:      Processes 178 Uptime 12 min Memory 576.3/7824.8MB Client Shell inxi 1.0.6


Symptoms: the system appears to sleep fine, but when trying to resume the screen remains blank (and the nVidia's fan runs on high) and I cannot login from another system using SSH (no route to host). Recovery is a reboot via reset.

I tried upgrading to 185.18.14 of the binary nVidia driver to no effect.

I see a number of problems being posted with Jaunty, but no common thread and there are a variety of symptoms ranging from mine (dead on resume) to sorta working like above.

bigbaaadbob, have you also tried other distributions not ubuntu based? I think that would help the admins here narrow down whether yours is an issue with mint/ubuntu or with the linux kernal itself.

In my case (lenovo T61 and Mint Helena 64bit) the sleep problem is a little bit different. When I close the lid Mint goes to sleep nicely, however, when opening the lid Mint wakes up and then goes back to sleep again. After pressing power button, it wakes up properly. - sorry wrong thread
