Suspension is not working

#1

Hi, all seems to be fine my ubuntu disco instal (i read here is beta but the iso says is alpha?).
the only issue that is brothering me is the suspension, i am happy working in my house, i have to make a demo two hours away, i just close the lid and when i am in site i open the lid only a black screen, no matter what i do i have to push the power buttom and ubuntu budgie start flawlessly

Please report suspension issues to launchpad. It is highly likely that this is kernel related. In a terminal type

ubuntu-bug linux

This will open a browser to launchpad. Type in your launchpad login name and password then fill in the details when prompted.

I’ve had the totally opposite experience. I wiped an old c2d Macbook for Ubuntu Budgie. Hibernate/suspension works flawlessly, but it won’t restart. It needs to be hard started every single time. I wonder if this is a hardware quirk, and not software. The Hibernate/Restart functions both work on my Dell c2d, similar specs. The current 19.04 beta works superfast on both

Suspension requires an ACPI state called S3 - some PC’s you can tweak the S3 state via your bios.

Then again - some PC’s have buggy ACPI firmware

So yeah - it can be PC specific - but do have a look around in your PC bios settings.

Ok - I think your issue is this upstream

Assuming it gets accepted, it will appear just before or just after the disco release with GNOME 3.32.1
