    Re: Keyboard does not work after Suspend or Hibernate

    Found a permanent solution!
    Edit /etc/default/grub
    and change the line
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    to
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash atkbd.reset"
    and run update-grub, reboot and when you press E in grub you will se the entry there.


    This is with grub2 and on 10.04.

    Huzzah! This totally works. Installed 10.04 on my wife's Sony Vaio after she got some hideous virus on her Win7 install and everything worked, except for the keyboard on wake. Now that this is working, she may just be amenable to living on a Linux laptop.

    Re: Keyboard does not work after Suspend or Hibernate

    I have the same problem on a HP Pavilion laptop with 10.04

    i am interested in this fix that involves editing the grub, but can't seem to?

    I typed gedit /etc/default/grub

    it opens an empty file, so i guess I am doing it wrong

    Can you point me to how to edit grub? (Also, will this change survive upgrades?)

    thanks...

    Re: Keyboard does not work after Suspend or Hibernate

    I just found that I don't need to change the grub.

    I have a hp pavilion dv2000. Amongst other things, it has a Fn key, which changes the function of the keyboard. Sometimes, the number lock is on when the computer comes out of suspend. Pressing the Fn or Fn+scroll-lock unlocks the num-lock, returning the keyboard to its original state.

    Don't know why num-lock is on though

    I have the same problem with a Bangho Laptop with Kubuntu 10.04, but I doesn't happen every time it hybernates, maybe 1 in 6 times. Activating num-lock doesn't fix it.
    In my case I think it happens when the laptop hybernates for long periods (+5 hours). So far, when woken up on those occasions where the keyboard dies, it fails to ask me for my password, it just goes straight to desktop.
    Maybe I can try something on yakuake? I'm quite noob so if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.

    Type Sudo before gedit /etc/default/grub and then your password and you should be able to edit the grub. As for surviving upgrades, it probably won't survive from version to version. Hope this helps.

    This solved my keyboard issue on a Sony Viao VGN-CS26G running Ubuntu 10.04

    Thank you very much.

    Is there a way to attach this to the default menu without having to use the cmdline?
