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

enter image description here

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).


If you can go to a command line using Alt-Ctrl-F1 then restart X. Else rebooting is the only options.

  • Thank you for the suggestion. Is there a way to solve this problem? I'd really like a hibernate feature that works. – mpenkov Sep 14 '11 at 15:46
  • File a bug report =) – Panther Feb 23 '12 at 22:58
