    11.04 suspend causes logout

    I just installed Ubuntu for the first time on an old computer I have laying around. When I choose suspend from the gnome power menu, it appears to suspend correctly, except that when I resume I find I have been logged out.

    The OS is a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 32 bit; the only change I've made is adding the rt3562sta driver for my wireless net card (but I checked and I get this problem even with that module disabled).

    The computer is a Pentium 4 desktop I first built 7 years ago. Abit IC7 motherboard (intel 875 chipset), Nvidia 7800gs GPU.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i think its not logout , when you are going to place it for suspend and then resume its generally going to ask a password to get back the user to desktop .
    Google First your issue , if no solution then ask.

    Thank you for your response, but I assure you that I know the difference between a locked screen and a logout. All open user applications are closed and the login screen is shown, which is distinctly different than the lock screen.

    System is up to date.

    If it's helpful, here is /var/log/pm-suspend.log (for a single suspend-resume):

    Re: 11.04 suspend causes logout

    Is there anything being logged in either ~/.xsession-errors.old, /var/log/syslog, or /var/log/Xorg.0.log at the time of the resume logout?

    /var/log/Xorg.0.log doesn't appear to contain anything near time of suspend/resume

    /var/log/syslog contains a massive amount of data, I'm not sure what I'd be looking for exactly. I can just give you everything at roughly the correct timestamp if you'd like.

    ~/.xsession-errors.old is here: http://pastebin.com/LD5ArbjZ

    Sure. It would be interesting to see if there is anything there of interest.

    Looks like X is crashing.

    What about:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep PM:
    What nvidia driver do you have installed? Did you install the restricted driver for "Additional Drivers"?

    /var/log/syslog excerpt for one suspend/resume: http://pastebin.com/1AiB1bwc

    'dmseg | grep PM:' produces no output



    I did select the nvidia proprietary drivers. The Ubuntu "additional drivers" tool shows:

    NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 173): This driver is not activated.
    NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]: This driver is activated but not currently in use.

    This is interesting:
    Code:
    Sep 15 17:55:09 bismuth gdm-simple-slave[5214]: WARNING: Unable to load file '/etc/gdm/custom.conf': No such file or directory
    but can't find anything relevant.

    Some interesting info here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...on/+bug/583525 and here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/738526. Do you have xfs installed?
    Code:
    apt-cache policy xfs
    I did select the nvidia proprietary drivers. The Ubuntu "additional drivers" tool shows:

    NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 173): This driver is not activated.

    I believe this is a bug. If you look in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file, it should show you which driver is being loaded and it should say nvidia.

    Other questions:
    1. Have you fully updated the system?
    2. What modules are loaded:
    Code:
    lsmod
    3. Try suspending manually from the command line to see if it produces a different result:
    Code:
    sudo pm-suspend
    4. Try disabling Compiz and then suspending. Any change?
