I am having a problem and not sure if its just a bug of the new ubuntu version. When i close my laptop and then open it back up there is nothing on my screen it is just black so i end up having to hold down my power button to turn it off and then turn it back on and go through the whole log in screen and all that. when i had the old version of ubuntu i could close it then open it back up and it would be on the log in screen so can somebody tell me how i can fix this or if its just a bug i dont know please help cause its getting old having to shut my computer off and turn it back on the way im having to do now!!

Look in System ->Power management. The control for what should happen should be there.

Can you suspend or hibernate manually, whichever is the current option when you close the laptop?
