Mint 14 Having Problem Waking after Suspend

Postby Maveri2k » Fri Mar 08, 2013 11:23 pm

Hi all.
I just installed Linux Mint on my Acer Aspire One 756 about 2 days ago and one of the problems that I cannot seem to fix is waking the laptop after I suspend it (by closing the lid or going through the menu system)

I've searched this forum and checked to see the UUID's match in a bunch of files.

The last steps I did was increase my Swap size from 1000mb to ~8GB
and then followed these steps to re-set the swap petition:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapF ... re_swap.3F

Here are some of

Code: Select all

sudo blkid
/dev/sda1: LABEL="System Reserved" UUID="22F25391F25367D5" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda2: UUID="2152618d-04b5-4f70-80fc-73696903e2c6" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda3: UUID="103E6D803E6D5FA8" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda4: UUID="3d7c22ba-96ff-475e-a784-44784ea881d1" TYPE="swap"


Code: Select all

cat /proc/swaps

gksu gedit /etc/default/grub &

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"


Code: Select all

gksu gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume &
RESUME=UUID=3d7c22ba-96ff-475e-a784-44784ea881d1


when I try to start up while the computer is suspended
the screen is not completely black as many of the threads say, my screen is just flooded with random text after I briefly see my desktop.
It looks like a bunch of RAM locations?

Thanks in advance!

Posing a reply to bump the topic and updates:

I tried the instructions by user Charm_City_Charlie on this reddit topic:
http://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comme ... leep_mode/

essentially modifying boot parameters and adding the intel_idle.max_cstate=3 parameter to linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-12-generic

Still having issues waking up after I suspend my laptop.

I have resorted to just shutting down the laptop when I have close the lid.

Another dubugging update (and bumping the thread):

I booted my laptop in ubuntu 12.10 live and tried to sleep the machine. Same problem occured.

However, while booted into fedora 18 live USB, # pm-suspend hibernates the machine and wakes it back up!

Going to have to assume now it is linux distro specific, since Mint is based off Ubuntu.

Went to Fedora since it was working at the time, but ended up in dependency hell trying to do the same things as I did in Mate (setting up secure wireless connection with wpa_supplicant and connecting to network printers)

Went back to the Mint Site, and downloaded the Mate 64 bit (with codecs) ISO again. Read somewhere that the SD card reader is a problem in many laptops, so I took the SD card out and everything works! First tested suspend in the Live USB, and currently works in the installed OS.

When I put in my SD card, I get the error screen in my first post.

regular USB storage drives do not appear to be a problem, just the SD card
