    Thank You PerlonKid
    Hi guys,
    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 have the exact same issue. I have dual boot of Window 7 and Linux Mint 11 and I see the same behaviour - can enter sleep/suspend with no problems but when I exit the netbook powers up but the screen remains black.

    Not much help I know but at least you know it's not unique to your install!

    It seems like a universal Linux problem (Most likely to do with the kernel - switch kernels has helped but problem still persist if I sleep/suspend for more than 2 minutes)
