Laptop shuts down instead of suspending

Post by blaze55 »

Hello everyone,

I recently installed Linux Mint on my HP Pavilion laptop and the laptop shuts down when I close the lid. I've tried going into the power settings to switch all "Suspend" options to "Hibernate" but that results in a black screen leaving me to hold the power button to turn off the system. I also installed dconf editor but everything checks out.

I am using an "AMD A12-9720P RADEON R7, 12 COMPUTE CORES 4C+8G x 2" processor and an "AMD/ATI Carizzo" graphics card.

Thank you in advance!
