Netbook can't resume after upgrade to ubuntu 10.10

Postby daudi » Mon Mar 07, 2011 7:56 pm

Hi,

My samsung n230 used to be perfect. I had ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and never rebooted it. I could close the lid and it would go into sleep mode, and when I opened it again I had the log in screen in 4 seconds. In practical terms this was close to instant-on. It was perfect.

Then I upgraded to 10.10, which is indeed a maverick OS. Resume after sleep does not work and is probably this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/uswsusp/+bug/658755
It seems to have been pushed somewhere and I am not sure if anyone is working on it.

Right now my only option seems to be to wait for 11.04 and hope that this will fix it.

Anyone got any idea how I might work around this now? How easy would it be to down grade to 10.04?

Thanks.

Try adding:

intel_idle.max_cstate=0

as a kernel boot parameter.

Further info:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... mments=all

Comments #115 onwards.

BTW, from that bug report, it seems 11.04 still has the same issue.

Instructions...

1.) Edit the /etc/default/grub file... in a terminal enter:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub


2.) Find the line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
and change it to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=0"

3.) Save and exit gedit.

4.) Now update GRUB... back in the terminal enter:
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub


5.) Reboot.

Also read comment #129 (onwards) on the above link.
