View Full Version : [xubuntu] No suspend on compaq laptop after update

May 7th, 2009, 04:38 PM
ok.. so im running Xubuntu 8.10 on a Compaq Presario M2105us laptop... When I first installed it, it suspended fine.. then i updated, and it broke the ability to suspend.. when I close the lid, it just goes to a black screen with a flashing cursor, with no way to exit without doing a hard shutdown..

is there anyway I can try and find out why this crash happens? Id love to have suspend back on this thing..

it also has an ATI m200 onboard video card, with shared memory.. i have the newest drivers available for the video card, as well... everything else runs perfectly but suspend..

how can/should I begin my investigation? :popcorn:

were you on 8.04 and updated to 8.10 or on 8.10 and updated to 9.04? or was it just a synaptic general everyday update?

It was 8.10, and it was just a regular update? is there an error log of sorts for X so I can see what the problem is? or something? lol

sooooo.. yeah.. any ideas on how to figure this out? ive been searching, and find nothing pertaining to my issues.. at least not with my hardware...

again, is there a log or something that will tell me what happened?

well, I updated a day or so ago, and now it suspends again... anyone have ANY idea.. ANY SUGGESTIONS??? This is a big issue for alot of people, and there has to be a way to troubleshoot it..

again.. ANYONE on this SUPPORT forum have ANY idea what causes this, or where I can check to see what is wrong? I have been researching for so long long and havent found any answers, that I didnt try it for hella long... I just accidentally put it into suspend, and it worked..

someone chime in, as this may help others to figure this suspend fiasco out...):P
