Hardware :: Ubuntu 10.10 Fails To Suspend

Dec 8, 2010

Ubuntu Maverick (64 bit) will suspend to RAM on my desktop computer immediately after I boot it up (before I start working). But after I have some programs open, it always fails to suspend.

I get the typical blinking cursor in the upper right corner of a black screen. Then, after 20 seconds, the screen comes back on. The logs contain a message that "Freezing of tasks failed after 20.01 seconds."

The problem task is usually listed as gnome-panel. Sometimes other tasks are listed too (such as Nautilus).

Why will gnome-panel allow me to suspend soon after booting up, but not allow suspend after I start working with applications? I am not changing anything in the panel. And deleting the applets I have installed (system monitor and hardware monitor) doesn't make any difference - the problem continues. As I said, sometimes Nautilus is listed as the task that refuses to freeze.

If I switch users, I can suspend. I assume switching users just puts me in the "clean" state I have with my own user after booting up, so this doesn't really tell me anything new.

I have searched all the other threads I can find. Most of the extensive suspend debugging threads are either from the 2007 era or they deal with laptops or resume issues. My issue is failure to suspend on a desktop.

As you can see from the logs, I've been working on this for a month already!

Here's a typical error message:
Nov 7 01:52:59 MyComputer kernel: [ 1625.221296] Freezing of tasks failed after 20.01 seconds (1 tasks refusing to freeze):
Nov 7 01:52:59 MyComputer kernel: [ 1625.221374] gnome-panel D 000000010001fdc2 0 1925 1853 0x00800004

Ubuntu :: Suspend Fails On Lenovo T400 / ATI Graphics?

Aug 31, 2010

Suspend works about 50% of the time on my T400. The other 50% of the time, the screen goes blank (light stays on), there is a blinking cursor in the top left, and the "moon" light blinks forever.

I've got the latest ATI (3470?) video driver installed. I've seen a few posts about this but no clear solution. Anyone here have this problem and (more importantly) been able to fix it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Fails After Reboot / Suspend

Dec 30, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS and have it set to dual-boot with windows 7 on my gateway tablet PC. Since installing, sometimes when I suspend or reboot, my wireless does not work. To be more clear - it is working fine, then I either suspend/reboot, then I come back and no wireless networks show up at all. I can still connect with ethernet cable though. I can solve it by rebooting multiple times (usually around 1-5 times) and then it (magically) seems to work again. I have also tried switching from network-manager to wicd, but the problem persists. With both network-manager and wicd, I've tried simulating a reboot for the wireless by using the command 'sudo modprobe -r iwl3945 && sudo modprobe iwl3945' (network-manager) and 'sudo /etc/init.d/wicd restart' (wicd), but these do not seem to work.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic - Fails To Wake Up From Suspend

Apr 21, 2011

I've had this problem two times before and solved it once by following a guide, the other time by formatting. It always happens when it fails to wake up from suspend. Usually I am unable to even mount the drive or access the files. This one is different in that now I can actually access my files for the most part but this comes up on boot. I backed up most of my files (except it still says I don't have permission to access some of them) but I would like to get it back up and running without formatting. If I boot in recovery mode it stops at this. I took a picture but I rewrote some of it here.

Firewire_core: created device fw0: GUID 00016c000061b4b4. S4???
in/sh: cannot open ro
Kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!

Ubuntu :: Laptop Fails To Resume From Suspend To RAM Intermittently

Jul 9, 2010

I have recently updated my Ubuntu 9.10 install to Ubuntu 10.04 and the default kernel to 2.6.32-23 on my Acer Aspire 5738z laptop with 3 GB RAM and Intel GMA 4500m graphics card.

My problem is sometimes the laptop fails to resume after being Suspended to RAM. The problem is not consistent. Most of the time the system resumes properly but then some times it doesn't . It even doesn't respond to the Magic Keys. I am left with no other alternative but to keep the power button pressed till the laptop shuts down.

Ubuntu :: Standby / Suspend: Fails 2nd Time On 'Freezing User Processes'

Feb 11, 2010

I have what I think is a somewhat different failure of standby than I've seen listed on other threads, and I'm stumped.The system hangs on this for a while, then comes back to the login screen without going into standby. This ONLY HAPPENS on a SECOND standby attempt--the first standby after booting ALWAYS succeeds.The standby log doesn't indicate any failures.I had made other changes previously that temporarily got standby working consistently:/etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash usbcore.autosuspend=-1"

Ubuntu :: Maverick: Suspend Fails - Doesn't Work Anymore Since Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10

I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 Worked fined, but suspend doesn't work anymore. When I click suspend, a tty1 terminal screen appears, exactly as you would hit ctrl+alt+F1, with the exception that no input is possible. I'm a newbie and an Ubuntu fan but I absolutely have no idea how to solve this...

Debian Configuration :: Resume After Suspend Fails With Kernel 2.6.36

Aug 27, 2011

I'm having problems with resume after suspend to RAM. The machine starts to wake up, but the screens (multi mon VGA and DVI setup) are black and the keyboard doesn't light up. After ~20 seconds there's some brief disk activity and then the computer reboots. 100% repeatable with affected kernel versions. My test method is simple, I boot the machine on the kernel's recovery option, log on as root and run "PM_DEBUG=1 pm-suspend". I haven't found anything in the logs after a failed resume.

Here's the situation:
I have a SSD disk. To get TRIM support I have to use kernel 2.6.33 or later, which means that the standard kernel in Squeeze is too old.I have Nvidia graphics, and there was a change in 2.6.34 that breaks older versions of xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (version 0.0.15, used in Squeeze), I can't use Debian Squeeze with a kernel newer than 2.6.33.x.My machine (XFX GeForce 9300 motherboard) won't resume from suspend to RAM if I use a kernel newer than 2.6.36. There are no BIOS updates available.

My options:
Install newer kernel from Squeeze backports (2.6.38.2 last time I tried). <--- Not doable b/c of resume problems. Upgrade to Wheezy, which uses kernel 3.0.x. <--- Not doable b/c of resume problems.Compile a vanilla kernel. So basically I'm forced to compile my own vanilla kernel, 2.6.33.x on Squeeze or 2.6.35.x on Wheezy. I won't be stuck with an unsupported kernel version in the near future, but so far I've failed miserably.

I know that the latest kernel version where everything works is 2.6.36.x (no longer maintained), 2.6.37.0 and later cause resume problems (I've tried 2.6.37, 38, 39 and 3.0.0, .0.1). I've tried doing a git bisect on the kernel, but didn't succeed, ended up on 2.6.36-rc5 which is weird considering that 2.6.36.4 works. There may be several suspend/resume bugs in different kernel versions that messed up the bisecting results.

Ubuntu :: Desktop System (P55-USB3 + Core I7 + 10.10) Fails To Suspend / Resume From Memory

Nov 27, 2010

I have a desktop system (P55-USB3 + Core i7 + Ubuntu 10.10) that fails to suspend/resume from memory. So I'm trying to diagnose the problem. The first obstacle was easy enough --- when I put the system to sleep to memory, the computer comes back alive right away. A look at /var/log/kern.log revealed that one USB device (usb10) failed to suspend, and from there I was able to pin it down to the USB3 controller in the BIOS. Disabled that and this problem disappeared.

Now, I'm stuck with the second obstacle. The computer successfully goes into the suspend mode, but it hangs during resume. The monitor doesn't get any video signal, and it fails to respond to ping (netconsole doesn't work either.) After a forced reboot (that involves unplugging the power cable), /var/log/kern.log doesn't contain any interesting entries. All the pm_test modes from freezer to core succeed (I followed [URL] I've also tried pm_trace (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingKernelSuspend) but again kern.log nor dmesg contains anything after the suspend. Either the write didn't survive the forced power off, or the resume is failing even before that. The motherboard doesn't have a serial port nor firewire, so getting kernel logs through them is not a possibility, either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Rt2860 Fails To Resume After Suspend (11.04, Natty Narwhal)

May 6, 2011

I've been happily using this lappie with LTS but wanted to try out 11.04. It looks great but wireless has been an issue:

1. No wireless during install
2. Had to manually blacklist the rt2860pci etc modules
3. Wireless still not resuming after suspend

05:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT2860
Subsystem: Ralink corp. Device 2790
Physical Slot: 0-2
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18

The latter manual mod improved things slightly but still no cigar

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 KDE - Suspend / Resume Fails To Enable Mouse

Apr 16, 2010

I've just started using OpenSuse 11.2 KDE. I have KDE4.4 installed. I had this issue with KDE 3.4 as well. My HP Multimedia DV3065 laptop is encountering an issue with suspend/restore. After restoring, the mouse is frozen. I have already tried a few things.

1. Dropping to init 1 and then back up to init 5 did not provide a temporary fix. So this is probably hardware related in some sense (kernel?)
2. I tried a grub option (cant remember what it is now). i8500-reset something like that. It made no difference.
3. I tried modifying my 99ZGrub file per another posts suggested solution. That actually locked up my laptop and I could not reboot (even after a cold boot). I pulled the battery and let it sit for a bit and it booted again

So I have several issues..
1. I would like suspend to restore my mouse.
2. I have not figured out how to program my Sleep button to Sleep. My menu bar icon has Log Out / Restart / Turn Off. The ALT+F1 menu tab Leave has those plus Sleep and Hibernate.

OpenSUSE Install :: Suspend To Disk Fails After Working For Several Cycles?

Mar 22, 2010

I've been struggling with suspend to disk (hibernate if you prefer) for a while, it works after a fresh boot and for several days' worth of overnight hibernation as I go about my work, but eventually it stops working - it gets to the splash screen but the bar only makes it a little way to the left before stopping, and then after a timeout the system just returns to the "session locked" screen - no real error messages.

I've done my best to try to find out what's causing it to break but I'm really struggling, the suspend process doesn't appear to write anything helpful to the dmesg log or the /var/log/pm-suspend.log - the only thing that I've seen at about the right point in time is cifsd, but I can't be sure that it's a problem with cifs as hibernate continues to work immediately after mounting windows shares with cifs.

System:

Phenom-II X3
4Gb ram
OpenSUSE 11.1

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze: Suspend/hibernate Resume Fails With Radeon Graphics

Aug 6, 2010

I am running Squeeze on an older Compaq EVO laptop with radeon graphics.

A few months ago, after an upgrade, suspend and hibernate stopped working. The suspend or hibernate worked fine, but the resume just hung with a black screen. I finally got around to looking into it and found a workaround.

The workaround is to disable Kernel Mode Setting for the radeon. This can be done by adding the boot parameter "radeon.modeset=0" or by editing /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf so that it includes the line "options radeon modeset=0".

If you are interested in the details, you can search for problem reports related to radeon kernel mode setting.

Fedora Hardware :: Aspire One (A110) Suspend Fails With SDHC Card In LH Slot.

Dec 25, 2009

F12 on my aspire one (A110, the original 8Gb SSD model) works well with only one significant problem.

Suspend fails; the screen fades to black, backlight stays on, macine stops responding to keyboard/mouse/powerswitch and just hangs (for at least an hour... longest I left it). Only thing that works is a 5 second click of death on the powerswitch. Plus an FSCK on at least one occasion after reboot. I have not been able to check if SSH and shutdown possible (on vacation) plus have logs go to a tmpfs (to save my SSD) so no log info. Similarly I cannot confirm if this affects hibernate because I run without a swapfile (SSD again, i.5Gb ram installed and I have never come even close to running out of memory).

But I think I have the culprit anyway:[url]

As described there; shutdown fails if there is a mounted card in the cardreader slot (/dev/mmcblk0) My system has a 4Gb SDHC card in the LH slot with a single XFS filesystem; which has my homedir on it; if I unmount that filesystem (but do not remove the card) shutdown and restore appear to work properly. But if the filesytem is mounted I get the bsod. Linked bug suggests this is restricted to large filesystems (?SDHC?) but I have not fully confirmed, although that matches my situation.

Posting here to see if anyone has any further info/workarounds, to ensure the fedora crew are aware that this appears to affect F12 (and is a regression, F11 suspended fine) and make sure it is documented somewhere. The linked bug also states similar bad suspend activity on other netbooks.

I'll try some other variations (and see if it also happens with USB sticks/RH cardrader, and report back here.

Ubuntu :: Waking From Suspend, To Tell It Needs To Suspend Due To A Critical Low Battery?

If I suspend this toshiba satellite, and the battery is or gets low it will wake from suspend to tell me that it will need to suspend due to a critical low battery. Which is pretty dumb. I've experimented with this by plugging and unplugging the ac adapter.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

Ubuntu :: Can't Resume From Suspend?

Apr 6, 2010

My laptop won't resume after it suspends. It works fine under win 7 so it's not the hardware. The light says it's on and it's pretty much a blank screen. I'm not sure whether it's operational but the screen is off. It has exactly the same resault a waiting for the blank screen except it won't go back on.

Ubuntu :: Can't Suspend Or Hibernate?

Apr 13, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. When I partitioned my HDD, I ran out of available partitions and so couldn't make a Swap Partition.I pushed on anyway, because I read here that you can create a Swap File instead of a partition that does the same thing. I've made the Swap File and it's activated (I know because during shutdown there's a message that flashes very quickly that says "Deactivating Swap [OK]".

But here's the real problem. My Ubuntu refuses to Suspend or Hibernate. The screen just goes black and the backlight stays on. Since one of the main functions of the swap file is to facilitate Suspend and Hibernate,I upgraded from 9.10 Karmic Koala, which suspended and hibernated normally.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Log Out When Resume From Suspend?

May 6, 2010

I've just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 via the upgrade manager. Prior to the upgrade I was able to suspend and hibernate without any problems. Now that I have upgraded to 10.04, I can suspend however when I resume I am back at the gdm login prompt, logging in again with a new session.Having just done another test whilst writing this, it actually appears that if I select suspend from the top right I am suspended and can resume my session. If I close the lid on my laptop (which is supposed to suspend) I am logged out and suspended.Also, Hibernate doesn't work as well - sometimes it never actually hibernates (just sits on a black screen) and sometimes it doesn't resume (it's never hibernated and resumed correctly since the upgrade)

Ubuntu :: Gnome-do Won't Suspend Any More

May 18, 2010

I upgraded to Lucid last night and am now checking various things just to make sure they still work. I've found that Gnome-do won't run the "suspend" option. It does, however, still "restart" and "shutdown" OK. Anybody else having this problem?I also seem to be experiencing some of the "resume from sleep" issues which seem to be plaguing other threads. Laptop suspends fine when the lid is closed but when it's opened again it's just a black screen. Also the machine shuts down for a few seconds then starts again to a black screen.

Key presses do nothing, pushing the power button worked a couple of times but is not consistent so more often than not it needs a forced shutdown and reboot. Not an ideal situation.Suspend from the panel menu works OK and from what I can tell, if the lid is not closed then the power button will bring up the login window.
