Radeon video card won't come alive after screensaver time out

Post by Peterjack » Thu Mar 08, 2018 7:37 pm

I'm updating this post because I have noticed it occasionally happens after the first time screensaver time-out suspends the monitor- though always 2nd time after waking up once. I know the system is running, the network printer still prints! The monitor can be cycled on and off but has no signal. It is absolutely the Radeon Vid card that won't come alive at mouse action/keypress. No proprietary driver. Since it is a home fileserver more or less (I also use the desktop some when I'm in there or working on it) it is left alone a lot. Any ideas very much appreciated!

Hi all- the issue is the first time Mint xfce 18.3 moves from screensaver to suspend monitor (NOT Hibernate or Suspend, just the monitor) it wakes up fine even if it has been hours, but if it is suspended again it won't wake though the system is running and REISUB (but not ctrl alt bksp or alt F1/2) works to avoid hard power off. It isn't new, it was present in 18.0 Sarah too. Here are the details- can it be tweaked?' -Pete
