I've jumped the ship and I am sinking into dark waters of Linux.. :-) Hopefully to see bright future. I need some assistance or guidance as I am new to linux. I have installed Latest version of Ubuntu on my Aspire S7-392. I had some issues with "fake" raid so I've got rid off it and I was able to install Ubuntu. I have one major issue that is important to me and that is laptop not going into suspend mode when powered from battery causing complete discharge when lid is closed.

When I try to suspend it with the lid opened to see what is happening I can see screen going black, then flicker and back to login screen immidiatelly.

  Can you help me to fix this issue?  Thanks  Charles

It's working now. Not really sure why but it is...
