Suspend Fails (Maya/Mate) <SOLVED>

Postby Penurious Penguin on Tue May 29, 2012 3:57 pm

Suspend fails to fully suspend, leaving a blank, but dimly lit screen, running fans, and requires reboot to resume system functionality. This occurs whether executed from terminal (pm-suspend) or the Mate menu. I have read that it may be mismatched UUIDs of the partitions, and have also deleted the swap partition several times hoping it might suspend to RAM instead, with no success. From what I have read, it seems I might try changing the UUID of the sawp to a certain -- but unknown to me -- partition UUID so that they match. If so, which partition should match the swap, root, or home? It may be worth noting that I had similar suspend issues with Arch Linux a while back on another Asus, and no encryption.

Specs:
Linux Mint Maya (Mate)
RAM = 4Gig
Swap = none (previously 2Gig)
System = Asus Laptop K53E (Intel i5)
File System = Ext4 Encrypted (durring installation)

I reckon this question gets asked once every day regarding Asus laptops but that's ok... :)

Here's the fix:

Solved! Thanks to toolio,

Adding the script to /etc/pm/sleep.d worked well. I'd gotten carried away and fussed around with UUIDs before confirming success and didn't know which change was to credit, but after removing x permissions from the script, suspend failed. So I made it executable again, and it works perfectly. I wish I'd figured this out with Arch :( But I'm quite liking Mate.
