Debian :: Suspend On Console Without The X Server Running The Laptop Wakes Up To A Blank Screen?
Feb 26, 2011
I'm using a dell latitude d630 with an nvidia quadro 135M card. I'm able to suspend without any problems while running the X server. If I try to suspend on console without the X server running, the laptop wakes up to a blank screen. The screen remains blank and my only resort is to type sudo halt (with the screen off).I'm using the proprietary nvidia driver with the nvidia-kernel package on testing.
Up until a couple days ago, my computer had no problems suspending to ram. However, now when I suspend, and later hit a key on the keyboard (usually space) to resume, all I see is an illuminated black screen. I can't even open a tty via Ctrl+Alt+F1. I can however ssh into the machine.he only possibility I can think of is that I am no longer running kdm. I just use "startx" to star an openbox-session.
I'm always getting a blank console screen after booting a 2.6.32-trunk-amd64 kernel in squeeze. I still can read the line "Loading, please wait ..." in the display for a second - then it's completely black until X windows is starting. When I try switching from the X console to another virtual console (by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1 e. g.), the complete system freezes. I have to hard reboot then.When I boot the previous 2.6.32-3-amd64 kernel instead, everything is fine as expected, though.There's a line "GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768x16@60" in /etc/default/grub as well as a line "set gfxpayload=keep" in /etc/grub.d/00_header. So the problem might be framebuffer related in any way. Any ideas what could be tried?The system is a Latitude E6500 with a Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller
I like to suspend my laptop when I close the lid. I have squeeze installed. When I open the laptop lid all lights indicated that it coming out of suspend but the monitor stays black. It is worse since I install the ati drivers for the card instead of the xorg. It did it with both but worse with nonfree drivers. I can get it to come out by ctrl alt f2 and the ctrl alt f7. However yesterday that did not work but that was the first time. My laptop is an acer 5251-1513 amd processor v120, and hd 4250 radeon
I'm running Debian Squeeze on a Dell Studio 1558 laptop, and I have my laptop set to suspend when my lid is closed. Resuming from suspend seems to work but the screen remains blank, forcing me to hard reboot every time. Upon reading this thread:

I am running Debian 8.3, and I'm running Gnome 3.14.1.I have an external monitor plugged in with HDMI, and while Linux is loading both screens are on duplicate. Once the GUI kicks in, only the external screen works, so I have to enter my password blindly. Then, I open a terminal and run
It seems 'suspend' (to RAM) does not work in my PC. After pressing the button this is what happens:1- PC switches off monitor and hard drive2- PC resumes hard drive activity inmediately after3- PC switches on monitor to a blank screenI can't bring any image in the monitor, I don't know if the keyboard works at allThe typical commands to bring a prompt or kill the X-server are not working.Pressing & releasing the power button doesn't change things, either.My only 'solution' is to press the power button for a while to completely switch off the computer and then reboot it.
When I close the lid of my notebook computer and it goes to sleep and then awake, there is no audio. I have read a few other's postings and have found that this has happens on more than just mine. I've installed the very same Karmic custom DVD onto other computers, including laptops, and sounds works after wakeup on them just fine. So I suspect there is something with my Gateway that is causing it. In the end, I have to reboot simply to get the audio to return.
I've configured my debian lenny to load first the command line, then if i want I load the X server, but doing this to that way I don't have the suspend/hibernate functions from the gnome menu, so, my question is:
what is the command to suspend / hibernate my system at any moment I decide?

I have a dell poweredge server. In the bios, it has the option to redirect the screen to the serial port. There is also the check box "redirection after boot" which from what I understand will let me to continue to use the serial port attached to a terminal as if it was the main VGA monitor with a keyboard attached.
When I start the machine up, everything goes as expected, I see the output from the bios on my serial terminal, until debian actually starts booting. It all goes blank. If i attach a monitor i can see it is indeed booted and waiting at the debian login prompt. What should I do from here? I was under the impression that if i enabled "console redirection after boot" that the os would be none the wiser and i could continue using the serial console as the main screen as needed, but that does not seem to be the case.
I am having problems with my wuxga 1900x1200 laptop display.The machine is a Dell inspiron 8600 with nvidia chipset.I am running driver 175 from the Karmic repo. My problem is when the machine wakes up after a suspend, the display blooms to bright white.The only way I have found to recover is power off the machine. After a bit of research I suspect it may be the refresh rates in xorg.conf, but lowering the values has not changed anything. Here is what I have currently.
Code: # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Wed Jan 27 03:02:48 PST 2010[code]....
orig values were horiz 30-128 and vert 50-90.I'm not sure it's the refresh...
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 CLI with Openbox as the WM on my Dell laptop. I installed gnome-power-manager because I like to suspend my laptop when the lid is closed. When the close the lid and reopen it, the screen is black and the computer never suspends. This happens regardless of whether or not gnome-power-manger is running is the background.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on a laptop. The laptop has an external 19" screen connected to it through the VGA port. I am not using the laptop screen (because it is small and flickers constantly) but only the external screen. When I shut the laptop lid the external screen blanks. There is no option in the power management dialog and the option "Activate screensaver when idle..." in the screensaver dialog is unchecked (which I would like to re-enable to blank screen when idle for x minutes). How can I get Ubuntu to leave my external screen on when the laptop lid is closed?
There is an installation problem when installing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS using Wubi on my IBM Thinkpad R50e. My operating system is Windows XP Professional. After Wubi installed the Ubuntu Installation Files on my hard drive, I restarted my computer. After restarting, I selected Ubuntu on the selection of operating systems.
First, I saw the introductory logo of Ubuntu (when the ubuntu loads its files). After that, instead I will saw the installation progress or the installation of language packs, only Black Screen will appear on my Laptop screen. I have waited for an hour, but nothing happens. It did not pushed through with the installation.
I am having problems with hibernation. When I choose to hibernate, the computer starts to do so, and powers off, and almost immediately it wakes up and comes back to the locked screen. I am using 32 bit version. Hibernate used to work properly on Hardy. I checked that my swap space is more than twice my RAM size.
I'm running stock Debian 8.2 with GNOME DE on an Acer ES1-512 series laptop. Whenever I attempt to go into suspend, either by closing the laptop lid or holding ALT when clicking the power button in the top-left system menu on the desktop, my laptop briefly flashes the default GNOME lock screen, fades to black, and then hangs there. Usually, when my laptop would actually suspend, the power indicator light would change from blue to orange and slowly fade in and out. However, now it just sits on blue. There is no way to re-awaken the laptop from this state, and I have to force shutdown by holding the power button.
I have installed squeeze on a HP notebook. I have one small problem though.It does not resume from suspend. If I shutdown -> suspend, or close the the lid, or shut downs (suspends) as expected, but whenower it backup up, the screen just stays black.Hibernate is working fine.

I have an Acer 1551 4755, with Debian Squeeze. Normally my Debian Squeeze installations and suspending work fine on my other 2 laptops. For some reason this one is troubled. I can put into sleep with "pm-suspend" or "pm-hibernate" but the thing is that my laptop never wakes up. I endup restarting.
I'd like your input on this. A toshiba laptop screen goes blank after few seconds(from turning on).
At first i thought it was fan that was out and once it got hot enough it cut the laptop off like my old Acer did.
But after close examination i noticed that it continues working. HD still spining and fan blows..
Example: Turn on>Hit F2 to go in to Bios> Bios screen appears>Before i have a chance to do anything it geos blank but continues working> I hit Cntrl ALt Del> it resets and screen comes right back up>second later it goes blank again.
ALSO the toshiba logo and whole screen seems to have a red tint to it.
I also get a media test error but that is likely from hard drive not being there during some of the tests.
DO you think it can be an LCD Backlight issue? or possibly video card?
I recently downloaded Ubuntu and I have installed the software successfully on a Dell laptop at work, however when I tried to install it in my home laptop it fails � the CD runs I get the Ubuntu load screen and then nothing. The CD stops running and I get a blank screen.I think it may be related to the screen driver, is there a way to see what is going on?
