After apt-get dist-upgrade to new 2.6.39 PAE kernel and headers yesterday, LMDE will not go to suspend. I set the screen saver to go on after 5 mins of inactivity, switch off the screen after 10 mins and suspend also after 10 mins.
Checking back 20 mins later, the screen was still on with the screen saver on. The suspend mode works fine in 2.6.38 with Nvidia drivers 270 pulled from Synaptics as explained here: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=71704
To be fair, I already had issues with suspend mode in 2.6.38 with out-of-the-box graphic drivers (nouveau?), to such an extent that I had to reboot the system. This was remedied by installing Nvidia drivers from the repos as explained above.
Your help is greatly appreciated, any ideas?
Thanks for your help!
