I figured it out phewww - the system was basically useless! Instead of reporting what did not work (e.g. looking at x-0-greeter.log), I will try to summarize what worked.

Here is a workaround that uses the idea from Malith's answer, but automates a few steps, let me know if it works for you, and if not, I have some other ideas that may work. Create a file named /etc/systemd/system/suspend-workaround.service, with the following content: [Unit] Description=suspend lightdm workaround Before=sleep.target StopWhenUnneeded=yes [...

Try this command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm and choose kdm as default. If this doesn´t work, try with other answers here. PS: As you said you´re new on Ubuntu, I recommended you to download .deb files when you want to install something new on Ubuntu.

You can edit the configuration file directly, but you may have to install lightdm-gtk-greeter (if not already installed). Go to the terminal and type: sudo apt-get install lightdm-gtk-greeter Then edit the configuration file: sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf or if you prefer to use a GUI text editor, sudo -i kate /etc/lightdm/lightdm-...

When you needed to suspend, do it using the shell opened by Ctrl + Alt + F2 login to that shell using your username and password. Then type sudo pm-suspend to suspend the machine. (If not, try installing pm-utils using sudo apt-get install pm-utils) To resume, press any key and you will see the last shell window. Now you can press Ctrl + Alt + F7 to get your ...
