suspend and hybernate don't work in ubuntu feisty

Asked by Collin Stocks on 2007-07-03

Whenever I try to suspend or hibernate my computer, the screen immediately switches to text-mode, and shows a blinking cursor in the upper left-hand corner. I have tried waiting up to half an hour (doing something else in the meantime), but nothing ever happens. So I press the power button for 5 seconds to power off. When I boot my computer, it boots normally, and does not resume from its previous state.

I am running ubuntu feisty on a dell inspiron 6000, pentium m processor

Also, when booting (while still in text mode), the following is printed onto the screen:

Starting up ...

Seems like the resume image isn't properly created or even created at all. Have you tried updating your BIOS yet (if there is any available)? Sometimes things like this are simply a buggy ACPI implementation, which could possibly be fixed by simply updating the BIOS. In other cases, the hardware is just problematic / badly supported. If updating the BIOS doesn't work, perhaps you can provide some more info on your hardware by pasting the output of 'sudo lshw'. When it comes to that, I'm afraid I can offer you no more help, but perhaps someone else can.

Okay, I'll try to find an update for the bios. I find it strange that suspend and hibernate worked perfectly well under windows. Here is the output of 'sudo lshw':
