Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Whenever I close my laptop and reopen it I am greeted with a black screen with the text:

starting configure network device security

stopping save kernel message

starting bluetooth

pulseaudio configured for per-user session

saned disabled: edit /etc/default/saned

And I can't do anything to get back into the OS. I press every key and move my mouse but nothing. Anybody have any idea what's going on here?


edit: my hardware is like this:

Asus A54H

Processor Type: Intel Core i3-2350M Processor Speed: 2.3Ghz Display: 15.6" Led Hd (1366 X 768) Memory: 4Gb Ddr3-1333 HDD: 320Gb ODD: Dvd Burner Connectivity: 802.11 B/G/N 10/100/1000 Graphics: Intel Hd 3000

Also, I just installed Ubuntu recently and it has happened since I installed it.

Has this always happened or since recent updates to your system? Can you add some hardware details to your question as it could be a graphic driver related issue. –  Mark Rooney Mar 6 '12 at 11:38

I am not sure if I can help with this, as it has been a while since I had a similar issue myself and I can't remember exactly what I did. Off the top of my head I am wondering whether you have tried messing with the setting over the power manager settings, or not?
