Help with resume after lid shut

I have an HP DV8000 laptop that I am having the following issue with:

If I close the lid when the laptop is on battery power it will not wake back up when I open the lid again. The HDD spins and it seems to be restoring the session, but the screen remains off. No buttons will wake up the screen. I can only reboot the laptop by holding down the power button. This model apparently does not get along well with suspend-to-RAM so I have all the power settings on suspend-to-disk.

Any suggestions what to try to fix this? Thanks.

Edit your preferences on power management,

I advice you update your kernel

See my recommendation on recent thread “Cannot hibernate or sleep”
