Screen Lock and Standby

Postby kandieyman on Sat Jul 11, 2009 6:20 pm

I use a Satellite L305, and I have two rather aggravating problems:

1) The first time I went into Standby Mode, I could not come out of it. The second time, the computer restarted when it came out of Standby.

2) Sometimes, when I lock the screen, I cannot come out of it. (I should point out, although I don't think it matters, that I had Folding@Home running at the time.)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have - which version and which edition (main or any of the CEs)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
This is a standard answer so it may not be fully applicable to your situation
Sadly this is very hard to solve - it mostly just works, but....
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
