Standy by mode on laptop?

Post by Dodge »

Not sure where to put this topic.

But has anyone solved this issue? When I just close down my laptop lid so it will go into standby mode so I don't have to shut it down everytime or leave it open. It will not come out of Standby mode. Just stays with black screen.

Anyone found a fix for this anywhere?

If needed this is an Acer Aspire 6530, AMD Turion X2 RM 70

Troubleshooting suspend errors can be a bit difficult, since so many factors are at play when suspending and resuming. First, let's get some basic information about your computer; open up a terminal and type

Code: Select all

inxi -F
Your suspend log will also be helpful. Type the following line in a terminal:

Code: Select all

gedit /var/log/pm-suspend.log
And paste the relevant portion of the log here...for example, this is part of my own suspend log:

Code: Select all

If you don't know what exactly is relevant, just upload the entire log (attach it instead of pasting the entire thing, it's probably quite long).

Oh, and you say that the screen stays off. Does that mean that only the screen is not responding, or the entire system is frozen? Can you suspend, resume, and then activate your CAPS lock? If you can, it's only a graphics problem...if you can't, your system is likely completely frozen and this is going to be harder to troubleshoot. Try pressing CTRL + ALT + F1 to see if you can get to a terminal. If there are any relevant messages in your dmesg output, I'd like to see that as well.

Fri Oct 16 19:57:59 PDT 2015: performing suspend
I just noticed vincent's suggestion to try the caps lock key after resuming, which helps determine whether it's a graphics issue or not. I'll try this and post again.

Thanks in advance for any assistance, it's much appreciated!

Re: Standy by mode on laptop?

Post by UbuntuLover »

I am having the same issue on my NE series Gateway laptop. It will suspend, but when waking from suspend, it appears unresponsive until I reboot or connect an external display. Anyone who can solve this issue will be very much thanked.

(I would have started another topic, but saw that this appears to be a common issue, so I decided to bump this five-year-old thread. I'm running Linux Mint MATE 17.)
