Resume from suspend

Hi, I am new to OpenSUSE (just the distro not linux) and I installed it on my laptop and when i try to resume from suspend it loads but then my screen goes black and doesn’t turn back on and this is the only distro i’ve seen it end up doing this on and I would really like to use this as my main operating system if i get the suspend working properly.


Try disabling the splash screen. Add

splash = n


I already changed that and it still does the same thing.

What type of graphic card you have?

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M880G [Mobility Radeon HD 4200]

Ok, I have the same problem as you.

There is a workaround for nvidia card, so it seems, but didn’t test it yet.

You can follow this discussion if you wish :

Can you hibernate ?

No I tried that earlier when after I tried suspend and then finding hibernation didn’t work correctly as well.

How much RAM and swap ?

When you say hibernation didn’t work, what are teh symptoms ? You can hibernate and doesn’t recover or you can’t go in hibernation ?

No more clues for you, sorry…

2GB RAM & 2GB Swap

The issues are the same as resume from suspend the screen goes off basically.
