Mint does not hibernate

Post by modenesi » Thu Jun 14, 2018 5:43 pm


I tried carefully all the possibilities here at this old post ( ... 4-mint-11/).

Unfortunately none of them worked, so I am feeling a bit lost. I use to hibernate a lot my pc, it saves a lot of time for me.

Thanks a lot for your attention, I really appreciate it.

you are not alone.

I also have a very similar ASUS laptop, mine is the TP500L

Mint 18.3 Cinnamon will NOT work on hibernate, nor sleep, and recover. it locks up the PC every time.

the only solution for mine, was to set every power option to 'NEVER'.

and Lid Close to 'Nothing'

there is something askew in 18.3 Cinnamon with the Power Management, I have a Dell laptop also, and it also does not work. I have it also set to never, never, nothing.
