Laptop Power Managment

Postby wessah » Thu Dec 04, 2008 1:45 pm

Hey everyone! Got a question and I can't seem to find an answer anywhere for it. First off, I'm a fresh Linux user. My experiences have been limited to about two weeks on a buddy's computer ten years ago or something.

I installed Linux Mint on my laptop (An HP Pavillion DV6000) and everything works fantastically. I even managed to get the wifi drivers for my Atheros to run properly. However, the only problem I'm running into is when I close my screen, whether I set it to sleep or hibernate, it doesn't come back. The screen stays black, and I have to hard power off my comp. Is there anything anyone has heard about this? I really don't have the first clue as to how to go about getting it to "wake up" as it were.

On the flip side, I absolutely love Mint. It's great, fast, and does exactly what I want it to.

Thanks for the help :D

I had that problem as well on an HP laptop. I know run Daryna Mint on an IBM thinkpad and all of the power management works fine. HP laptops usually have AMD processors while my IBM has an Intel processer, I think that may be the problem.
