Thread: Sleep not working on SuSe 13.1

  1. #1

    Default Sleep not working on SuSe 13.1

    On both of my machines, sleep doesn't work. My desktop goes to sleep but never wakes properly and does a clean boot. My laptop never goes to sleep but the screen goes black and fans goes to 100%. THe laptop also seems to heat up so I think its doing something hefty too but I'm not sure.

    Not sure how to troubleshoot this, Debian never had this (but had other problems ).

    Thanks.

    hey there,

    I am also having the same issue, even after enabling this setting in the power settings. Quite annoying!

    If by sleep you mean "suspend to ram", it often does not work right on
    desktop machines -- it makes little sense there, IMHO.

    For instance, on an old desktop I have, on suspend from Windows the CPU
    fan went off, but the CPU itself remained running and heated up a lot,
    almost burning to the touch. I later found out that this was a known bug
    of my motherboard.


    The most common think I have seen with suspend on desktops is that they
    don't wake up properly. Hibernation (to disk), on the other hand, seems
    to be quite more reliable.

    You could try installing the laptop-mode-tools, and using the command
    line to suspend or hibernate, for testing (pm-hibernate and pm-suspend).
    (pm-[tab][tab] will give you some other possibilities).
