As the title says I cannot suspend or hibernate my laptop in linux (tried with debian and ubuntu too)what should I do?
Since recently I switched to Ubuntu and love it, except for some minor things I can't get fixed, which bother me.One of those is that my PC will not suspend / hibernate. I've looked in the system log and it says:Sep 11 11:30:51 ZOLDER gnome-power-manager: (steven) Suspending computer. Reason: System idle.Sep 11 11:30:51 ZOLDER gnome-power-manager: (steven) cannot suspend as not allowed from policySep 11 11:30:52 ZOLDER gnome-power-manager: (steven) suspend failedSep 11 11:30:52 ZOLDER gnome-power-manager: (steven) cannot hibernate as not allowed from policySep 11 11:30:52 ZOLDER gnome-power-ma
I recently upgraded a macbook pro 4,1 from jaunty to karmic. Since the upgrade, whenever I try to suspend the laptop, I get a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. The only way to recover from this is to forcefully power down the laptop by holding in the power button and then reboot.After rebooting, there are no errors in the pm-suspend log file, and no oopses or other errors that I can find. I can get the suspend to work if I boot into the old kernel (2.6.28-17-generic), but with that kernel neither sound nor the trackpad will work.The guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/co
When I try to suspend, I get this rather under-detailed error message:Computer failed to suspend.Failure was reported as: Cannot suspendAlong with that, the options to suspend and hibernate are not in the Power menu. I wonder where they could have gone...Laptop is, once again, a Samsung NP-RF510. I already got the issues with the keyboard, touchpad and brightness control sorted out, now I just need to fix suspending and hibernating.And no, s2ram doesn't work. If I try it it says this:tom@tom-laptop-linux:~$ sudo s2ramMachine is unknown.This machine can be identified by:sys_vendor = "SAMSU
For some reason I cannot suspend to RAM on my Asus M50Sv-A1. I tried to follow the generic tutorial here:http://blog.paulbetts.org/index.php/2007/02/11/fixing-software-suspend-hibernate-with-uswsusp-in-ubuntu-feisty-and-edgy/...without any success.I tried to add the -force flag in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf with the same negative results.The only thing that suspend does is log me out.I'm now worried that my fingerprint reader software could be behind this mess. Any help would be appreciated.
I have a problem with my computer, my computer cannot suspend, hibernate or resume properly, Including to the manual there can be a numder of reason for this. I do not find any of these reasonin this manual so is there anybody who knows anything about this?I have an HP G7000 with Ubuntu 7.10 on it. Everything works fine accept this problem.Can somebody take a minute or two and help us with this.Angie
The system halts on Not Enough Free Swap. I have Hibernate disabled because I know I don't have enough swap for that and only want to suspend. Suspend works some of the time, but typically I get this:Aug 1 00:36:03 Carnivore kernel: [82746.136593] PM: writing image.Aug 1 00:36:03 Carnivore kernel: [82746.136600] PM: Free swap pages: 46233Aug 1 00:36:03 Carnivore kernel: [82746.136602] PM: Not enough free swapI didn't think Suspend used Swap? I have only read about needing a large Swap if you are trying to Hibernate. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HelloI just installed lucid in my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L-650) and no networks are available. I cannot connect to the wireless network. Therefore I tried to connect with a cable directly from the router (and this works in a different computer with windows), but no networks were available either. Here is some information.Output of sudo lspci | grep -i 'net' 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8152 v1.1 Fast Ethernet (rev c1)03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Device 4727 (rev 01)Output of lsmod:Module Size Used bynls_iso8859_1 3249 1 nls_cp437 4919 1 vfat 8933
I love 8.04!!!! It seems faster and more solid! The ONLY problem I seem to have with my Toshiba M35X laptop is that when I click on suspend and close the lid, when I open it again, the power light comes on but the screen stays black, it does not come back. Is there anything I can do about this? Thanks for all your help! Hurray for Ubuntu!!!!!!:)
After upgrading to Lucid RC I notice that I cannot create a CD image anymore. Brasero gives me three options : two .toc and one .cue file format but neither of them work :(the CDDAO variant of the .toc format gives me a notification that i need to install some extra packages but even after installing those, the image creation hangs. I used to be able to create .iso images but that option has completely gone...Any solutions around?
Been running ubuntu just fine on my laptop for about 3 years. I am on the Lucid, and have had no problems since first day it was released. Recently the laptop will not shutdown properly; it issues the halt and power down command and then just sits there. Only way to get it to shut off is to hold power button in. When I go to restart it (seemingly randomly), it won't start x and boots to terminal only. Trying to start x fails. If I leave the laptop off for a while and come back, it usually boots up normally. It will run fine without any problems til I try to shut it down again. I've checked xor
Hi, yesterday i've installed Ubuntu 9.10 32bit with Wubi on my Toshiba notebook.All went fine; today i had the "bad" idea to click "Suspend" button! I couldn't restore the session anymore.. so i restarted the notebook.And now, when i click Ubuntu, in the initial menù, i get:[Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename. ]..grub> How can i restore my system? :(
Symptom:With an SD card inserted, the machine will not suspend. On a reboot, with SD card inserted, suspend works once. After that, the computer will not suspend, or shutdown, even if I physically remove the SD card, I still have to manually hard boot the machine. I have also tried using software eject in nautilus, which does not help the issue.This is reproducible every single time using the above scenario. When the issue occurs, the machine looks as if it is going to suspend, in that the screen goes black as expected, but it just hangs at the cursor and does nothing. Usually if I press a key
http://james.dowden.googlepages.com/Screenshot-Power.pngAs you can probably see from the above screenshot, when I've got my netbook plugged in (for use as a radio), I don't want it to decide to go to sleep/suspend (and thereby cut the sound).Now -- you guessed it -- despite setting the GNOME power management dialog as above, there's clearly some low-level setting making it go to sleep/suspend anyway.Does anyone know what file I need to hack to kill this annoying behavior? (It's the default Hardy UNR install, FWIW.) I presume it's one of the Toshiba customizations or something to do with the Ne
Hi, I'm working with a Toshiba Satellite A105 S4284. My problem is with suspend. Unlike many, suspend and hibernate do work; that's nice. The problem is that after the first time I successfully suspend by closing the lid, I need to subsequently close the lid twice to suspend. I was thinking that some program was not accepting the suspend signal, but shutting most things off doesn't help. So, I close the lid to suspend. Computer suspends. I open the lid to return to work. Computer starts working where it was. I need to do something else, so I close the lid to go to suspend again. The computer d
I have a fully updated Lucid x64 install on an HP HDX16t. I can't suspend anymore. It just turns the screen off and stays on. I have to hard reset to fix it. I think it might have been caused by a kernel upgrade, but I can't remember and stupid me I cleared out the old kernels (yes, I should know better). Any help debugging?
During the last install of the the 2.6.32-25 kernel, I was unable to suspend. The screen would go black, but it wouldn't enter suspend. No big deal, I figured I'd just use 24 kernel. Now after the most recent update, I can't suspend in any kernel! The screen goes black, but that's about it. If I move my mouse around, it returns me to the login screen. This isn't the only suspend problem I've had. It won't suspend if there's a DVD in, and the screen used to fade out when you hit suspend, now it just goes black.Another note, the scrolling in a browser was very different. Hard to explain, but it

When I try to suspend Ubuntu, it goes down fine. However, when I try to wake it up I get a LOT of error messages, so many that it reads too quickly for me to catch any of it down. Ubuntu never comes up and I'm forced to shut down. Hybernate, restart and shut down all work perfectly fine. I'm running on an HP dv5 laptop if that helps.My volume buttons also stopped working. I have a touch volume bar at the top of my keyboard which used to work. However, I noticed that my highest volume wasn't high as it was on Vista, so I tried to change the volume on the master volume. I changed the PCM volume
I'm on a Dell Dimension 8250 tower running Jaunty, and I cannot for the life of me get the computer to return from a hibernate or standby mode. It will go into hibernate or standby with no problems (as least as far as I can tell), but it will not recover, and I'm clueless as to why or as to how to find out why. I've got:Pentium 4 2.4 GHz1 GB RDRAM128 MB Nvidia Geforce FX 5200Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Someone please help. I want to start using ubuntu exclusively but I can't do that if I can't get my computer to suspend. I was never able to suspend my computer in gutsy. When I clicked the suspend button it would just lock my computer. I performed a clean install of Hardy and now I don't even have the option to suspend. The suspend button is not there anymore! I'm thinking it might have something to do with my hardware:Asus A7n8x-E deluxe motherboard, Radeon 9250 pro, 1 GB ram, anthlon xp 3000I would really appreciate any help.
I have an nvidia chipset with 6100 graphs... and there's no suspend option.I cant suspend using pm-suspend, there's absolutely no action on doing so.I've try setting agp=no after modifying my xorg.conf and adding option nvagp true (something like that) it's not workingPlayed around in /etc/default/acpi-support.Anymore ideas?
Recently got a new laptop for work, an Asus N61J, and I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it. For whatever reason, the laptop will not suspend. I have no idea why, as it looks like it is going to, but ultimately dumps me back at the Unlock screen, as though I had just locked the computer, rather than suspending it.However, it does kick me off my wireless network, so I think it *does* suspend, but only for a second or so.Looking at /var/log/pm-suspend.log, I seeInitial commandline parameters: Fri Apr 2 12:25:45 NZDT 2010: Running hooks for suspend./usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/000record suspend suspend: suc
guys, I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 on a Compaq CQ40, and I'm having issues with suspending Ubuntu. I've been wading through other threads in this forums with similar problems with little success. Firstly, I should point out that I'm not very familiar with Linux; I'm still mostly an XP user, with that running on my desktop which I primarily use. In any case, I've found out (by using the s2ram and s2disk commands) that I can suspend to disk, but not to ram. If I were to suspend to disk, everything works fine. However, if I suspend to RAM, and I try to restart my laptop, it'll run into a bunch of erro

Greetings, I am a brand new user of linux with little experience. Recently, I tried ubuntu on my Desktop and found that they are so nice that decided to install them on my laptop which is a toshiba portege m800-10z. However, I find that ubuntu do not recognize neither my pci ethernet marvell card nor the intel 5100 wireless card. I have searched for a solution over the internet but none seems to work.

First post here so i'm excited to b a new user of ubuntu!Only problem is that i can't seem to suspend or hibernate on my ibm t43..all i get is a black screen but i can still hear the cpu running. i can also see is the hibernate light blinking repeatedly and i can't boot it up after that. It's a pity cause i tend to leave my laptop on suspend whilst running around..Any help please?
I seem to be having a problem suspending Ubuntu 7.10, the OS does suspend properly, but when I want to resume using the OS it just will not come back, I've tried pressing different buttons on the keyboard, pressing the Power button, but nothing:(. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
ernate and suspend do not work on my system. When I choose either, the process to hibernate or suspend begins, the screen turns off, etc. Then, it turns back on, and goes to the screen saver as if I just chose the "Lock Screen" option. I type in my password, and then get a small popup saying HAL failed to hibernate/suspend and it directs me to some FAQ. How can I get suspend and hibernate to work?By the way, I DON'T have a laptop (just in case that's significant).
When ever I try to suspend or hibernate my laptop, ubuntu crashes, and I get some kind of error. I have to manually press the off switch and on switch again to restart my computer. Is anyone else getting the same issue? Any solutions?
I have all my data, muic and films saved as UDF data DVD. Most of them were created with Windows XP, using the built in windows support for that format (basically drag&drop just like ubuntu and write to disc).Those DVDs were mounting and reading perfectly in Ubuntu 9.10, but in 10.04 they don't even mount.Is it a new intented "feature" of Lucid Lynx to break UDF compatibility ? Does anyone else have the same problem ? Is there a known workaround this bug ?PS: I use 10.04 64bit beta 2
I can't seem to properly resume from suspend on my netbook. When I do, and upon trying to resume, only find a black screen, cpu, harddrive and fans spin though.Currently using Ubuntu 11.04 with Ubuntu 2.6.38-10-generic kernel. I am very new to Ubuntu, so please be nice :)EDIT: I have Dual Boot (separate partitions) with Windows 7 32Bit, Ubuntu 11.04 is 64bit, could that be a problem?I've read that the ati fusion c50 graphics drivers could be the problem?
I just wanted to post this here so others can find it if they need it. I just went through the process of troubleshooting the suspend on lid close functionality of my Toshiba U405D-S2852 laptop.I posted the results of this troubleshooting process here: http://jasonkotenko.com/posts/toshiba-laptop-suspend-lucid/Please feel free to leave any comments you have on that post.
I have been using Dapper on my Toshiba Laptop (M45 S165) for several months now and have gradually solved most problems. One I have not been able to solve is suspend/hibernate. I have googled it and searched the threads but can't find an answer. Maybe someone can tell me how to do this.I have Gnome Power Management enabled but I get no slider for my screen brightness as the documentation says I should. When I right-click the power icon on my task bar, then choose 'hibernate', I get:Swap partition '3:5' is not available, cannot suspend to disk.What am I doing wrong?

I am using a Lenovo laptop with Lucid Lynx and GNOME. The point is that I use the laptop with external monitor, keyboard and mouse when I am at home, and the laptop lid stays closed. It works fine, but I cannot suspend the session without having to open the lid to resume it again.Do you know if I can change any configuration, maybe in gconf-editor, I don't know, so I can resume a suspended session without having to open the laptop lid? (moving mouse or pressing a key, like after locking screen)
As I use Ubuntu more and more, the fact that I cannot suspend or hibernate bugs me more and more. This is true with both the "nv" and "nvidia-glx" drivers. This has been the case with Hardy, Intrepid, and now the Jaunty Alpha 6.When will this end? I read about something in the ATA kernel driver not properly terminating, postponing suspend by 5 minutes, but for once I waited 5 minutes, and no dice.

So basically i can't get my laptop to suspend anymore. It used to about two days ago, have been doing a ton of Google searching with no luck.

In the power management options I can not change any of the options to suspend. When i push the suspend button on my laptop i get a error message...Failed to suspendComputer failed to suspend.Failure was reported as: Cannot suspendThis is not much help.

I'm a very new user of Ubuntu. I've messed around with a few distros for fun in the past, but I haven't seriously used Ubuntu until this week.I installed Ubuntu 10.10 using Wubi on my Lenovo ThinkPad R400 with Windows XP. Suspend worked for the first few days. Then I installed the Macbuntu theme [http://sourceforge.net/projects/macbuntu/] (which changes not only appearance but how a few things function as well). Since I installed the theme, suspend hasn't worked.I've tried closing the laptop, suspending from the shut-down menu, and suspending from terminal, but all have the same result: the po

Sorry to say but I am having identical issues to those posting previously. Mine is an old IBM T30 with an ATI Radeon video card. It took me only a few minutes to get sleep on Jaunty working on it, mostly the removal of scripts that had previously been necessary (from the Thinkpad WIKI as I recall) to be stored in /etc/pm/sleep.dI am super bummed because this machine stays in sleep in my office except when I need to quickly check the 'Net. Powering it up/off each time is a serious drag. I am wondering if degrading back to Jaunty will be required.and then a little digging and investigation point
