Problem with resume from suspend, 18.2 Cinnamon

Postby asquartz » Thu Aug 03, 2017 2:36 pm

Hi,

Lately I have been having trouble with resuming after suspend (when I lift the laptop lid).

instead of the lock screen, I can see the desktop as I left it. I can use the touchpad to move the mouse around, but can't click on anything or type anything. I can only Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to return to the main login screen.

My 18.2 is an upgrade from 18.1, and I have not chosen to change to LightDM, I am still on MDM. I have installed all the updates that have been notified to me.

Can anyone give me a pointer where to start looking please? This is an intermittent issue and does not happen every time.

Upgrade the kernel from 4.10.0-27 to 4.10.0-28. That fixed it for me.

I have exactly the same problem (with a fresh installation of 18.2). Any help would be very appreciated!

Hi kyphi

Thanks for the suggestion, sorry I seemed to ignore it, as the forum didn't give me a notification.

I had actually rolled back from 4.10.something to 4.8.something to see if it helped. I will try going forward again to the most recent and see what happens.

Regarding "suspend" and kernel version, I tested the following:

1. kernel 4.4.0.87 - suspend worked perfectly.
2. kernel 4.8.0-53 - suspend worked perfectly.
3. kernel 4.10.0-27 - suspend worked for short periods but not for long periods. Possibly a conflict with automated programs.
4. kernel 4.10.0-28 - suspend worked perfectly.
5. kernel 4.10.0-30 - suspend worked perfectly.

Resurrecting an old thread here, but I'm still having problems with suspend and resume. I've tried a variety of kernels and am now on the most recent one offered in the update manager. All give me problems when resuming from suspend, say three times out of five I have to CTRL-ALT-Backspace and log in again. Usually have to restart the network-manager to get wifi going again too.

Any ideas other than the kernel as to what might cause this? At the moment it is causing me to consider other distros... :(

inxi information is in the OP.

Thanks :)

I have the exact same problem, and have for the last months. So far I have not found anything that solves this, but will post if I do.

Can any one help me with this problem???

I am very sure that in the past on some level of 18.2 resume from suspend was working on this computer.

Additional information - went back to Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon ( Linux Kernel 3.19.0-32 and Cinnamon Version 2.86) and suspend now works on my computer. I think I had discovered a bug - how do I report this bug?

update 12/7/2017
The latest update fixed my suspend problem - Linux kernel 4.10.0.40-generic and Cinnamon version 3.6.6
