I have had a problem with suspending my computer, since I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS a month ago, dual boot with a Windows 7 system.The "suspend" function does not work.Whenever I suspend my system and then turn it on again, it just starts from the beginning, as if I had not suspended it, but shut it down.
No open programs or documents are resumed where I left it.The same goes for hibernating my Windows 7 system, which behaves as if it underwent a forced shutdown, whenever I try to resume from hibernating.
Since both systems have this problem, I think the latter lies in GRUB.When I installed Ubuntu, I was kept too long on the installation screen after it was complete and, thinking it had frozen, I forced it to shutdown to start the new system. However, apparently the installation was not completely done, as I got a GRUB error after that, being unable to boot any system. I fixed it by running a GRUB fixing program through the Ubuntu Live CD, the name of which I cannot recall.Perhaps that program did not solve all the problems.
I have no further problems with Ubuntu so far. I had a Linux Mint installation before that,instead of Ubuntu, with no such problem.Can you suggest a way to fix this?
