My Dell laptop (with Hardy Heron installed) used to suspend flawlessly until I updated Ubuntu, now it won't, I've got to force a shutdown.
Any ideas please what could have caused it and if I can undo the update that has caused the problem? :(
Thanks.

i don't know but the same exact thing happened to me, and now i'm wondering too. it goes to suspend fine, but when i try to bring it back, the monitor won't turn back on, and none of the keys work, so i have to force shutdown. when i try to sleep in windows vista (dual booted) it works just fine.

On your terminal, try this command before suspending:

Code:


sudo rmmod uvcvideo

it says, "ERROR: Module uvcvideo does not exist in /proc/modules

Try recompiling the kernel and do the restart then test your suspend. On your terminal, issue the command:

Code:


sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
