I am running Ubuntu 18 on a Razer blade Stealth 2017. I have it running side by side with windows 10. I have experienced some issues with this and I have fixed all but one.

Whenever I want to put my laptop to sleep while using Linux, I would close the lid and it would go to sleep. Now when I come back, It would open and within 10 seconds it would go to sleep again, I then wake it up and log in and the process continues until I restart the system. This also happens if I just lock the screen for too long in my experience(without putting the lid down). This issue doesn't happen on windows so I doubt its a hardware problem.

I would love some help because the only workaround is to disable sleep mode.

When I run dmesg | grep sleep i get a message that ACPI is preparing for sleep(S3), then that is it waking up. This(the constant suspend problem) only happens after i manually suspend the system(by closing the lid).

  • Do you have a Nvidia Graphics? If so, have you installed the NVIDIA proprietary drivers? – user880592 Feb 9 '19 at 21:10
  • No, I have Intel integrated. – Itay Bachar Feb 10 '19 at 2:36
  • What happens when you suspend using menu instead of closing lid. Then press power key to resume because lid is already open? – WinEunuuchs2Unix Feb 13 '19 at 13:43
  • It does o the same thing no matter how i go into suspend. Once i suspend the system, it will randomly(very often) start suspends by itself. This lasts until i reboot the system. – Itay Bachar Feb 13 '19 at 17:05

After some more looking, I found this page https://github.com/rolandguelle/razer-blade-stealth-linux/blob/master/ubuntu-18-10.md It has many common bug fixes that have to do with the blade stealth.
