Occasionally, when I recover from s2disk, I get stuck with the following image being displayed on the monitor:

The only way out seems to be power cycling the machine.

It's an ASUS K42Jr laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. How do I go about looking for the cause of this problem? Are there any log files that are likely to contain helpful hints?

Suspending using s2ram seems to work OK (provided I use the --force flag).
