Black screen after suspend/sleep

Postby adity on Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:58 am

My computer used to boot with zero backlight but i found a solution which is to put sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00 in rc.local.
But the problem is Everytime i suspend or lock my pc, the zero backlight problem comes again and I have type the command again which is a pain in the a**
Is there a permanent solution or workaround to it

Try "laptop-mode-tools" available in Software Manager. This program can be configured to resolve most power management problems.

Info for configuring is here:
Mint 17.3 Cinnamon/Mate 64bit
Dell Inspiron 15R(N5110) Intel i7-2670QM, 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz, Intel 6 Express HM67
GeForce GT525M (Optimus), 500G SATA, 15.6" HD 1366x768
