Title: Blank screen after suspend
Post by: |nic| on January 03, 2012, 11:15:32 am
Hi,

I installed VL 7 standard on my netbook. Everything works but when i'm trying to get my netbook out of suspend all i get is a blank screen.

Nope, but I will watch this thread with interest.  When I come out of a long suspend my computer doesn't act right either.

Have you tried keying Ctrl+Alt+F1, followed by Ctrl+Alt+F7? This fixes a blank screen at the gdm login that sometimes happens on my Intel notebook.

@ Joe1962

Unfortunately it doesn't work, any other suggestions?
It's like when I'm trying to get out of suspend, the system freezes.

cheers

there is a fix in the latest kernels for broken resume. can you try one of them and see if it works for you?
there is 3.0.15, and 3.1.7 in the repo

uelsk8s, could you be a little more specific about the new kernel resume fixes?  I looked in the regular and testing repositories under "kernel" and didn't see anything new.  Plus, the kernel symbol shows a locked symbol.

Hi,

 I tried both Kernels, but the problem  is still the same.
Can It be related to Grub?

You said you installed VL 6. So no. You do NOT have the same problem.

I have though.
Nothing seems to "wake up" my Thinkpad X30 with VL 7 Standard installed. The CPU fan is spinning like crazy.
