I recently installed ubuntu on my new Acer Aspire v5-123 laptop, after using it with great satisfaction for years on two other laptops.
First I got the more common problem of the display manager not starting, but I solved that by installing the proprietary driver.
But now I have the problem that every time I close my laptop screen or plug in the HDMI cable or do something else that make the screen goes black, it won't turn on anymore. So when I close the screen, and re-open it it does not reactivate, it remains black nothing to be done about it. The computer also doesn't goes into stand-by as the power button light remains on. I tried CTRL-ALT F2 etc. to reactivate, but no help. The only thing I can do in such situations is hold the Power button for five seconds en restart.
I try to focus to first put the computer in stand-by before closing the screen, but I quite regularly forget and that means that I am always obligated to shut down by holding the power button for five seconds, and to be honest it irritates the hell out of me, and it can't be good for my computer to do that all the time.
If there is anyone who recognises this problem or has any solution, that would be very much appreciated and very helpful. Thanks in advance!
