By default it should bring your computer back by pushing the on button, but if it doesn't it may be a problem with your graphics drivers.

Unfortunately standby can be a finicky thing in Ubuntu. I can't think of anything!

Sorry I can't be of more help :(

I have had this problem on three seperate laptops using Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10. Was not present on the 7 series, but has been a total pain lately.

I have hunted high and low and tried numerous fixes, all to no avail. TBH I am not overly bothered, I was more concerned when I could not shutdown at all, but that was to do with wireless drivers.
