    How do I get out of sleep mode?

    Hi,

    I am on Xubuntu 13.10 and when I set my desktop on sleep mode, there is no way to get it back on. Nothing I press on the keyboard will wake it up, the mouse doesn't make it react either. When I push the power buton on my computer it will reboot...

    What is the problem, and how do we safely and quickly get out of sleep mode?

    Thanks.

    I have always had to depress the power button slightly to awaken from sleep on my dual boot desktop. The mouse or keyboard works on the Win side but not Ubuntu.

    I always thought that was the case, that only the power button could wake up my netbook, until one day I accidentally pressed the space bar... and the rest is history.

    Okay thanks anyway!

    I'll no longer set in in sleep mode, since it's not convenient enough. I mean to get out of it quickly as in Windows.

    Have a nice day!

    I'm on my netbook now and will give a try a little later.
