View Full Version : [xubuntu] suspend and hibernate not working

July 15th, 2009, 09:56 PM
I'm having an issue with my G4 Powerbook running Jaunty Xubuntu. Anytime I set it to suspend or hibernate, it shuts down. In the case of suspend it seems to go to normal suspend mode for a minute and then when I try to wake it up it just shuts down.
I've been through these and other forums and tried everything I found, but to no avail.
I'm not a complete newb but it has been awhile since I've gotten too deep into Linux, so I'm not sure what logs to check.
Any suggestions?

Make sure you have the latest EFI version on your machine. It made a difference on my macbook pro, although I was actually getting a slight different problem. You may also want to look into a package called uswsusp

I don't what you mean by EFI?
And I tried uswsusp before real quick with the same results but i guess I could try it a little more in depth.
