Hibernate and Standby not working.

Postby Kanode on Sun May 13, 2012 5:58 am

Hello,

I hope I post this in the right section^^.

I'm a brand new LMDE Users and I like it quite a lot. I have tried some distributions in the last few years (Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, Fedora, Arch Linux), but I like Mint the most so far because it just works^^. I was really that almost everything was just working out of the box... Never experienced that with a Linux before ;). But don't overestimate my Linux-knowledge, it is still pretty basic because I could never use a Linux for a long time because of technical issues. Just treat me as a newbie :).

But unfortunately not everything works so far. As the thread name states, Hibernate and Standby are not working for me. When I click either one of them, my PC shuts down as he should, but immediately restarts. And he seems to run into an endless-loop while startup when I choose hibernate so I have to switch my PC off. Standby doesn't hang at startup, but it just boots the PC normally and nothing gets restarted. It is as if I would have rebooted the PC.

Regarding my system: I have 8 GB RAM, so I created a 10GB big swap partition, to make sure Hibernate is working properly. And my mainboard comes with UEFI, I don't know if this is important or not. And of course my system is updated ;).

I hope someone can help my with my problem. If you need any further information, please let me now :).

Regards,
Kanode

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There were several problems reported in this forum with either kernel or module problems.
Have you tried another kernel or graphics driver?

I recently installed another graphics driver and replaced Galium3D with the proprietary Nvidia driver. No change though. I tried no other kernel.

Any ideas?

If it's really unbearable you could install an older kernel from Debian.org. There is still 2.6.32 in the repositories.
http://packages.debian.org/linux-image-2.6.32
Compare with uname -a what you need.
