I've been using 10.04 in my Vaio laptop for more than 3 years now without any problems, until recently. After updating (a few months now) my computer behaves not so well. The problem: If I suspend de machine, when trying to wake it up, the computer would start using a lot of CPU for about a minute before showing the login dialogue again. If I try to suspend again, it would do the same before powering down. This drains my battery and It shouldn't happen since as I said, it never happened before.
Moreover, after a fresh install it works with the latest NVIDIA drivers, but, if I update the distribution (kernel, etc) the problem appears.
It didn't happened before, my NVIDIA card is a GeForce 310M, using NVIDIA drivers since the ones provided by ubuntu never worked for me, and I tried many times. I'm not a fan of using their drivers but I always had problems when installing the restricted drivers from ubuntu.
I'll appreciate any ideas and I'll provide with all the info you might suggest. I tried this already
Best regards, Sebastian
