    Computer won't wake up from sleep/suspend mode

    My computer when I tell it to go into sleep/suspend mode it won't wake up. Anything I can do?


    Is there a way to save it's current state {programs opened websites loaded}->turn computer off-> Turn on-> load saved state?

    Have you tried pushing the power button? A friend of mine has to do that to resume from sleep.

    Or try holding down the power button for about 5 seconds. That worked for me when my computer didn't turn on.

    I had to do that before Natty Narwhal. Now I just hit a key on the keyboard/move the mouse

    Pushing the power button turns the whole thing off and when turned back on nothing is saved/reloaded.

    Try pushing the power button very quickly. Just a quick tap. That may also work.

    Also, what version of Ubuntu are your using? And do you have a proprietary graphics driver? If not use the driver wizard. There should be a motherboard icon on the indicator applet.

    quick taps to the power button does nothing I just got ubuntu it should be the newest version 11.04.

    Not sure on the graphic driver I'll try the driver wizard.

    /edit driver wizard had nothing to download but I'm going be replacing my really old video card with a slightly newer one in a few days.

    /edit it was the video card. Replaced with a x1550 and it wakes right up.
