View Full Version : [ubuntu] no screen when resume from suspend

When I close my laptop lid (it goes into suspend mode). When I open it again, I can't see anything but a black screen. I have to reset the computer manually to access Ubuntu again.

On a related note probably.. for 'some' screensavers, when I click to re-access my desktop, the screensaver freezes, but I can't see the unlock dialogue. I can however still type my password and it will unlock, I just can't see what I'm doing.

Thoughts on where to begin to fix these display related issues?

Happened to me once or twice
When you shut the lid try pressing the power button...

yeah tried that. Even control-alt-delete :) Nothing helped. Had to hard-reset. Now I make sure I shut down or hibernate. And hopefully a fix will naturally present itself sometime...
