Problem with waking up after suspend. 12.04 URGENT

Asked by Roman Battaglia on 2012-10-14

Whenever my laptop wakes up after lifting the lid, sometimes it wont show the login screen. Just the mouse, when i press escape, the mouse blinks. I am thinking it may have something to do with my logitech mouse because when the reciever is plugged in this problem happens more often. It also happens less when i use the touch pad to wake the laptop up. I have a ibuypower laptop with and i7 processor and ubuntu 12.04 LTS. i am losing my documents because of this random thing happening. PLEASE HELP!

How is a waking up from suspendissue 'urgent' exactly?

Can you give the output of:

sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

Dual GPUs are a LOT of bother in Linux. I have seen nothing but issues with it and it is best avoided. This link may help:

Before you close the lid, save the file then close.

I doubt you will getany joy with this. This is due to nvidia refusing to support the technology. They did join the Linux Foundation so it may get better.

thank you for the help. I have also set my computer not to show the lock screen when i open the lid and it works better now.
thanks for the topic on hybrid graphics
