    Question Latitude E6400 not cleanly resuming after standby

    Hi all

    I installed Kubuntu 13.04 (fresh install), since then my notebook won't cleanly resume after standby. This used to work on 12.10 so I guess it's a configuration issue.

    When I resume from standby, KDE offers me the login window, but I can not type anything in the password box.
    I can then switch to the console by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2. After killing the X server process, X restarts immediately. I can enter my username / password and it looks like KDE is starting again. However, the splash screen only shows the first three icons and then just halts.
    The only option I then have, is a shutdown / restart from the console.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    Is this from Suspend or Hibernate? Is it from closing the lid, several minutes of inactivity, or manually selecting it?

    This is from suspend. I don't have Hibernate activated. And it's from manually selecting it (Fn + F1 on the Dell Latitude E6400). Same thing happens with closing the lid though.

    You might try the Dell forum here.

    Well, it did work on 12.10. so I thought I have more luck here as it doesn't seem to be a general Dell problem. Maybe someone else experienced the same thing.

    Re: Latitude E6400 not cleanly resuming after standby

    Can you post back the contents of your pm-suspend.log file like this (from a terminal window):
    Code:
    pastebinit /var/log/pm-suspend.log
    ...and post back the link that is generated.

    Also, can you post back the results of this command (also from a terminal):
    Code:
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep PM:
    Maybe there is something in one of these files that can help pinpoint what the issue is.

    Sure I can:

    Here is the pm-suspend.log
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5866117/

    And here the part of syslog
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/5866125/

    Thanks for your time

    Re: Latitude E6400 not cleanly resuming after standby

    Unfortunately, there are no errors in those logs.

    Are you using any special peripherals (keyboard/mouse) instead of the laptop keypad?

    Can you also post back a couple of more files? Post these after a resume attempt when you are at Ctrl+Alt+F2.
    Code:
    pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    sudo pastebinit /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log

    No, nothing special. The only things I have connected are a Logitec Mouse (M705) with one of these universal USB connectors. But the mouse is responding, I can move the cursor around on the login screen after resume. The second thing attached is an external screen, but the same thing happens without the second screen.

    Here are the files:
    Xorg.0.log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5867230
    lightdm.log: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5867231

    There just don't seem to be any error messages that can help us. I do notice that you are using the opensource nouveau drivers. Have you tried enabling the proprietary nvidia driver?
