suspend won't work ... HELP :(

Post by lems » Wed Mar 18, 2009 5:57 pm

I have linux mint 6 64x distro and suspend won't work :( Whenever I suspend, it does it correctly, but it won't come out of it properly. I press the power button while it's suspending and it looks as if it's going to work, but I usually get a black screen or if I made it to the login screen, it messes up and freezes. I'm pretty sure the computer is frozen and not just the keyboard/mouse b/c the blinking on the password field stops and is just frozen.

You have to tell us more facts.
We need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (To copy from a terminal right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
