Resource management issue with Chrome and sleep mode

Post by SSayan » Thu Nov 07, 2019 10:03 am

Hello all,

I'm a very beginner with Linux (using Linux Mint Cinammon 19.2) since I only starting using it few weeks ago as I was tired of Windows 10 updates etc.
I use my computer for very basic activities (internet and watching videos mainly) so the difference is not really an issue and I could adapt quite quickly.

However I have a huge issue and I'm not too sure where it comes from.
On windows 10 I barely ever turned off my computer, just closed the lid and it goes to sleep and come back easily after.
I did the same on Linux and when I open back my computer, I can't use it anymore, all my Chrome tabs are frozen... Didn't find any solution but hard reboot :(

Then I switched to using "Suspend" before closing the lid and it worked OK a few times but most of the time the computer can't seem to actually complete the "suspend" process and the computer get completely unusable again.
All of this seems to be linked to Chrome usage of resources.
I have the (bad) habit of having a lot of tabs open and it never really created an issue on W10 but seems to be an issue on Linux.

Did anyone had that kind of issues and have a proposal to sort it out?
This is almost sending me back to Windows... :?

Thanks

I kinda doubt it's Chrome at fault. Does it do the same with other software? Sounsd like more basic power management issues.

You'll need to provide some useful system info, copy/paste the text output of inxi -Fxz run in the terminal.

Thanks for taking the time.
One additional point, I am using an app that I launch through the terminal and although it is working fine, I am getting the below error message:
[1661:1661:1107/192945:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(345)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.
No idea what it actually means...

See below the result of the command inxi -Fxz:
