Fresh install of Xubuntu 14.04.3, replacing existing OEM Windows 10. Install detected UEFI, and installed in UEFI mode. (I have attempted to change to legacy boot, and got it to a state where it was booting without /sys/firmware/efi/ being present, but behaviour persisted.)
Suspending the laptop, whether by closing the lid, choosing the suspend option from the menu, or directly typing "sudo pm-suspend" works perfectly well... once.
The second attempt to suspend, whether immediately or hours later, suspends the laptop (I can see the screen turn off, and hear the disk and fans stop, but a moment later the screen shows bright yellow console text declaring "Warning!!! Boot script table modified!!! Please contact your vendor.", and then it hard reboots.
This appears to be a weird interaction between suspend and UEFI protection, but others have reported that they have had working suspend when installed alone (and presumably in legacy from the start), but this behaviour appeared when reinstalled as dual-boot (when presumably UEFI would have had to be on). (http://askubuntu.com/questions/675683/s ... oot/712232
and earlier http://askubuntu.com/questions/651481/b ... act-vendor
, from different people.)
Beyond the investigations I have done, I know next to nothing about UEFI, or how Suspend might be interacting with it. Much less why it appears to work perfectly exactly once.
