I have a Lenovo Y560 and have installed Ubuntu 11.04 (64 bit) via Wubi. When I start the notebook on battery, Ubuntu hangs before the login screen. Any workarounds?

I'm using a lenovo y560d. And since upgrading from ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04, 2 days back, i'm facing the same issue. I think there is some problem with the kernel 2.6.38 Was able to start my laptop only after plugging it in. This is a critical issue, I won't be able to start my laptop while on move. :( – user15913 May 1 '11 at 18:57

I have the Y560 as well and am experiencing the same problem. I tried downgrading to older kernels but still have the same issue. I did find this bug and verified that I have the same kernel panic and message happening. There is also someone with a Y460 with the same problem here Lenovo Y460 won't boot most of the time unless plugged in

Update 2011-07-16: It appears that the latest kernel update (2.6.38-10-generic) has fixed the issue on the Y560.
