Hello

Just installed LL on my netbook, and I love it, but there is one thing I cannot live with. Looking at this forum, and many others, but cannot find a solution. Maybe, and I hope, there is!

So after putting the lid down of my netbook, or putting it to sleep manually. I cannot see it woken up.

There is a black screen, no mouse cursor, but there is hdd movement. (the led is blinking).
Sometimes, after more than 5 minutes, the login screen appears again. (but that can be because I clicked something in the black screen.)

Have you tried this? https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=1480.msg12791#msg12791

Now I tried, Installed
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install acpi-support
But no luck. Same thing.

Also tried disabling the screensaver. Which is not possible, so I put it to be active after many hours.
Fiddled around with the settings in the Power Manager. Dont see any difference in suspend or hibernate behaviour. Sometimes one of the two is greyed out, and I cannot choose.

I was trying this, as I think it is an option for LL no? But cannot find the file. (Off topic, but where is the search in the file manager Thunar?)

Thanks for any help in advance!

Don't forget to do File, Restart Daemon on Screensaver after any changes, or they won't stick.

Ok, but we were many forced shutdowns later already ;).
Found the disable screensaver and restarted the daemon. It is something different than Ubuntu, and I like it. But not this black screen.............

Update

- black screen problem continues
     also after totally disabling the screensaver.

Workaround.
 in Powermanager select "do nothing" when run on AC power when lid closes.
 on battery power  select "suspend" (that is what I want to function normally)

So unplugged and lid closed, result black screen.

Plug AC in, black screen stays.
Close lid.
Open lid
And I do have my screen back.

(what a way...)

That sounds familiar (see post: https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=839.msg12349#msg12349).

As in my last post there, after killing light-locker the system now uses the XScreenSaver look screen when coming back from suspend. Since then I didn't have to reboot, even if it takes sometimes quite a while (and lots of disk I/O) for the XScreenSaver window to show up.
Still an issue however is the network connection after coming back from suspend, but also not consistent. Roughly half of the time the network has been disabled. Enabling it via the panel icon doesn't help though. I need to restart the NetworkManager:

$ sudo kill $(pidof NetworkManager)

Then all is fine. For me it's annoying but I know what to do. :) It stops me however to put the system on other people's computer :(

Are you able to get to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1)?

PS: Just saw your last post with your workaround... haven't tested this.

Great!!!

You pointed me in the right direction. THANKS

Yesterday during install I formatted the boot (sda5) and the home (sda6) dir. And in some way, the swap got lost. So with Gparted I recreated it again,  and it works. The output
Code: [Select]
e@asus-e:~$ sudo parted -l
Model: ATA WDC WD3200BPVT-8 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 320GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start   End     Size    Type      File system  Flags
 1      2096kB  211GB   211GB   extended
 5      2097kB  10,5GB  10,5GB  logical   ext4         boot
 6      10,5GB  105GB   94,4GB  logical   ext4
 7      105GB   211GB   106GB   logical   ext4
 3      211GB   319GB   108GB   primary   ext4
 2      319GB   320GB   1311MB  primary

doesnot state in File system that sda2 is a swap, (don't know why) but Gparted shows me. (and cannot show you as images are not allowed as attachment)

It is working!
GREAT. THANKS

Yes, I saw your post.  Had it once that the network manager was not working. (out of 20). I am on cable now, because wireless does not want to connect. We will see. One thing at a time.  ;)
And yes, I could get in the console, and shut down the machine. But off course being a blind man.

Ok, so the problem is still not solved. (I deleted the mark solved, and the best answer)

There is a definitively a relation between the memory and the waking up. but also with battery power and being plugged in or not.

I sometimes still have the black screen problem. Running low on battery, (around 10%) I had the black screen after logging in. Closing the lid, plugging the machine in on AC, opening the lid, logging in, all fine.
While unplugged, and having the black screen, and then plugging in, no success.

This morning, all night on suspend mode, I had no problem at all waking it up.

I was able to activate sys.log (Thanks for that thread). Is there any output I can post which can shine a light? (the whole sys.log is too private I believe)

Thanks!!

My Dell D610 has got this issue after an upgrade to LL 2.4 from 2.2. I used to open lid and just press the esc button twice and I'd get the login. Now it black screens. Is there a way of going back a version? Meanwhile I fiddled round in power manager and using settings of on ac/hibernate and on battery/suspend I can press menu/logout/suspend and close lid. On opening it goes to login and I can log in no problem. This is with wall power permanently on. I never use the battery alone although there's one in with little charge holding ability.

well JAS, I was just about to put up a request for help for my machine (eee pc 1000HE) until I saw your message. When I'd put the screen lid down, it would shut the thing off correctly but when I opened it back up, black screen and no control.

In my particular case, I went into the power manager and there were settings "When laptop lid is closed:", that was set to lock screen so that is why I couldn't do anything after I opened it back up. I just selected "Suspend" and now everything is ok.

This is with Linux lite 2.4

I don't know if this will help anyone or not but I wanted to put this up.

I have this issue on my older gateway as well. I changed screensaver / power options and no change.
However after I login, the screen is blank/black, If I close the laptop lid again and open it right away the screen returns to normal.
It doesn't bother me that much except at night, just one extra step to do.

Hello!

Is there a way of going back a version?

Short of you reinstalling 2.2, no. The updater was designed to go forward only, not back.

I know you don't want to hear this, but that's why backing up everything first is so important. Besides, once one of 'the big guns' steps in, they may know how to fix this issue short of 'nuking it and starting over'...
