View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems when closing the Laptop lid....

November 28th, 2010, 09:19 PM
I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 which has run Windows Vista Ultimate for many years. I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 in addition to windows. Everything has worked wonderfully and I intend to install Ubuntu as the sole operating system on my next computer, but I still have one remaining problem:

When I close the lid, the computer goes into sleep mode or hibernates(I'm not sure). This is fine, but it will not wake up when opened. The screen remains dull black (lit), but no login box appears. I've had to simply pull the plug each time I forget and close it on accident, and that simply cannot be good for the computer.

Anyone know what I'm dealing with?

Thanks in advance,
