Hi I'm trying to troubleshoot this and am following these instructions to help me out.

I'm getting a black screen after suspend and am using a Toshiba NB515-SP020LL with a GMA3600 graphics card. It has the latest BIOS. I am running 12.04

The graphics card isn't supported yet so I'm sure the problem is related to that. I don't mind since this is a netbook and high performance is not a priority. It'd just be nice to suspend the computer. :)

Any suggestions?

cat /proc/acpi/wakeup > wakeup

You could try this. – mikewhatever Mar 26 '13 at 8:16
thanks! that specific suggestion didn't work but reading the pm-suspend man page is illuminating... – azoe Mar 26 '13 at 12:01
Hm..., to be honest, that didn't work on my netbook with GMA500 either. I had to do sudo mv /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/99video /usr/lib/pm-utils/99video, to solve exactly the same issue. – mikewhatever Mar 27 '13 at 0:06
@mikewhatever I recommend posting that as an answer. Even if it's not what solved the OP's problem here, this is the best place to post it, isn't it? – Eliah Kagan Mar 29 '13 at 1:44

To simply get suspend to work on this system I just added this line to the /etc/pm/config.d/gma500 configuration file:


I didn't have the file, or any other in that directory, so I created it.
