I have a Nokia Booklet 3G and I have a problem (not one, actually) with Poulsbo suspend/resume. I installed Lubuntu saucy (beta), which runs smoother than previous versions (it actually boots, unlike Lubuntus and Ubuntus earlier than 12.10).

When everything in xfce4-power-manager is set to "nothing" (closing the lid, low power, pressing buttons etc.) and --quirk-vbemode-restore is added to /etc/pm/cinfig.d/ (as suggested here computer suspends successfully, and shuts down after pressing power button. But when I change to anything other than "none", system crashes on resume.

What actually puts my system to sleep when power manager is set to "do nothing"?

mm... can you separate the questions please? As it is currently is difficult to address all your questions at the same time. – Braiam Sep 17 '13 at 1:34
You're right. I moved one of the questions here: link. – Michał Sep 17 '13 at 4:44
