I've install 12.04 on my Vaio as a second OS. I created 2 new partitions for swap and /.

When the lid is closed, system fails in suspend mode. The indicator blinks like it does in Windows (by powered on it is green, on suspend links orange).

But when I start the system again by pressing any key, it looks like normal boot. No changes are saved.

What can be the problem? P.S all updates are installed.

I don't know about the specifics of which Sony Vaio model this will work for, but it seems this question may be a duplicate of this question, which has at least one answer for some Sony Vaio models.
