I have a problem with the Standby function: My Computer does not enter the Standby mode with Ubuntu 14.04LTS. If I remeber me right, it works with Ubuntu 13.10 but this Version was not long installed on this PC.
Now when i press Standby in the menu or on my Keyboard, the display turns black for a few seconds, then some messages appear for a very short moment on the screen. After that, the the log-in screen appear. Two times I was able to enter Standby but the other times it fails.

Tecnical Data about my PC:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 with all Updates
  • main storage: 3,8GiB
  • processor: Intel® Core™ i3-2330M CPU @ 2.20GHz × 4
  • graphic: Intel® Sandybridge Mobile
    graphic board: NVIDA GEFORCE GT 555M CUDA 1GB
Dual Boot System with win7
x64Bit Medion P6812 Laptop

Here is the message output:
messages
Usally I got only a half or one third of the screen filled with messages like that. This time, when I filmed it, it was much more.

here is the log from /var/log/pm-suspend.log:

Maybe related to this unanswered question: Standby Mode (suspend) not working on my computer
If someone needs more log comment. I dont know wich logs are necessary in this case.

You are using the default nouveau driver, for your nvidia graphics card. This is a reverse engineered driver and is known to cause trouble with power management. From what I can tell from my experience suspend with nouveau is gambling, depends very much on the kernel version, graphics card etc.

The first thing I would try if I were you is installing the official nvidia driver: Note, though, it is proprietary, but I would try to see if it resolves your problem, because then we know pretty much for sure nouveau is the component to blame. (Looking at all the errors on your screen I am pretty sure though nouveau is the trouble maker.) If you have concern because the proprietary driver is closed source, you can set up a second ubuntu install on an external hdd/usb and try it there.

To try the proprietary nvidia driver do the following:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates

and reboot your machine after the process finished.

Please report back if that changes something for you.

If not, my second try would be disconnecting all external hardware (usb devices like scanners, printers etc.), to make sure nothing external triggers a wakeup.

EDIT: Please also paste the output of

lspci

since the error message on your screen says "Device 0000:01:00.0 failed to suspend" and that command helps us to find what device exactly that is, but I suppose your graphics card.

Added by questioner:
For all who have similar Problem with a Nvidia Card in a laptop, If you have further trouble (eg. if your OpenGL Version is still low, or your laptop needs a lot of energy), check if your card uses OPTIMUS technology. This means that you have an additional graphics card, which is used for not graphical expensive Applications. In contrast this second card is optimized for low energy usage. You can search on the in the optimus scetion on the Nvidia Site for your card. If found your card there install also bumblebee and bumblebee-nvidia. After that, to run a Application with your powerful graphics card you have to run your Application via

$ optirun <path to app>

  • Is nouveau reversed engineered? I was under the impression it was just an opensource alternative.

  • Yeah it is, because nvidia does not release enough hardware information. Read the wikipedia article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nouveau_(software). You are maybe confusing this with drivers for AMD graphic cards, where the situation is a little different.

  • Go to the nvidia site and get the proprietary drivers, I had a similar problem Aug 28, 2014 at 15:56
  • peterretief: I would not recommend this, simply use the packaged version available from the repo, otherwise it will break everytime you do an kernel upgrade. If the packaged version(s) are too outdated for you, I have good experiences with launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa, be careful though.

  • Leon95, I am glad it works! The graphics performance will also be a lot better, than with the nouveau driver and your system will likely be more power efficient.
