Default Suspend and hibernate on Mini 9 is broken - 11-01-2009, 11:53 AM

I've upgraded from 9.04 UNR to 9.10 UNR. Previously automatic and manual suspend and hibernation worked. Now it doesn't. It's utterly broken.

Using suspend or hibernate the screen dims and then turns off, but will not resume at all. Previously the power led would blink in suspend mode and turn off altogether in hibernate mode, now in either mode the power led stays on.

Any ideas about how to resolve this?

I have that many probs I may roll back to 9.04.


2 cylinders is enough, but 3 is a fine compromise

Do you have a SD card inserted? Try unmounting it prior to sleep.

I got a 9 through Outlet that when I got came up boot error. While waiting for my bigger SSD I installed the latest Ubuntu NB remix and it wouldn't hibernate. It would just blank the screen and then come right back to the shutdown(exit?) screen.
I didn't trouble shoot it all though being I got a 32GB SSD and W7.
It is still installed on the original SSD, so I could easily revert.

I have the same problem, as do many according to the ubuntu forums. I installed 9.10 on 11/1 and I still haven't found a fix. I've tried every setting in power management. I can either have the mini on all the time with the screen going blank when closed, I can have everything freeze needing a hard reboot, or I can shut it down. That's it.

This was my fix:

Edit /usr/sbin/pm-suspend ( ie. sudo gedit /usr/sbin/pm-suspend)

add this line to the beginning

umount <where your card is mounted> (ie. umount /media/mySD)

this worked for me ... good luck

Where exactly on the /usr/sbin/pm-suspend to I enter this? I tried immediately under the introduction and it froze when I tried suspend.

I entered it like this:

# The rule here? Simplicity.
umount /media/<name of SD card>
export STASHNAME=pm-suspend

worked like a charm for both hibernate and suspend. My remaining unresolved issue with my SD card is that it doesn't auto mount on boot. But that's not such a big deal.

Default Thanks - 01-13-2010, 01:57 AM

The above post helped a ton. Keep in mind it is important that when you read umount /media/mySD you read it correctly. My speed reading read it as unmount (which made sense to my linux noob brain) but the system doesn't like the unmount command when i put in umount it immediately changed text color. i knew it would work then. it did.

My SD card auto mounts with a file manager screen as soon as it wakes back up. a bit annoying that you get the pop up but much better than not suspending. I am using an 8GB Sandisk SDHC card.

Still can't get the password that pops up after suspend to go away.

I read in another post that going into gconf-editor and editing the gnome power management lock would do the trick but its not working for me. I unselected all of those in that category and it still asks for a password after each suspend attempt. This is a 4 day old install of 9.10 remix.

Any suggestions would be great. Mostly noob here so please be detailed if you expect me to get it.
