So, I just tried Linux Mint for the first time (4.0 Main edition). Everything works fine and I was suitably impressed until the first time I had to shut the lid of the laptop and grab something behind it. When I opened the lid again I found only a black screen with the pointer arrow still where I left it.
I have tried setting the power management to "Do nothing" when I close the lid. Little does it help. I have run apt-get update/upgrade. No change there either. So, any suggestions?
The laptop is a Dell latitude X300.
