I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my laptop. (Toshiba Satellite A 210) It has a AMD Turion 64 x2 cpu. Whenever I put my system into standby, it freezes after returning from standby. Can anybody help me. This also happened in 10.04 but not in 9.10.

  • I have Toshiba Satellite M40X and ubuntu Desktop 12.04LTS. This bug still exists. I don't remember this in previous versions but I could be wrong... – AlexT May 10 '12 at 16:16

This is a common bug, and a plague of Ubuntu as far as I can understand.

I've been with ubuntu for 2 years now, and this is the first system I've had where I can reliable suspend and restore without any issues.

Your best bet for getting an answer is to search the ubuntu bug reports at Launchpad.net

Here is one bug report matching this problem, though from a previous release:


  • Ehm Okay. Now hibernate and stanby are working fine Oo – mrstrauss Oct 15 '10 at 18:55
  • No..hm. sometimes it works but sometimes not Oo – mrstrauss Oct 16 '10 at 12:40

I'm also on a Toshiba Sattelite Laptop and my computer goes to suspend mode just fine but when i try to wake it up, hdd and other things wake up but my screen stays black and it looks like the display did not wake up from the suspend.

I think it's just that suspend is not supported on all computers...


I also have a toshiba, I discovered that after suspend, the open monitor icon in the panel shows both cores running at 100%. With such monopolization of the CPU, other processes may run, but very slow.

I opened a terminal (use the -T shortcut if the mouse is not working fine)

and listed the running processes:

ps -A 

I saw that two processes were active: snort and sip2ncid, I killed both, with kill <pid>.

One can learn about those programs with the apropos command.

But I do not know exactly what are those programs for

HW is a satellite u205 intell core2duo@2GHz, Ubuntu 10.04 x86-64 with gnome.
I do not remember bios ver, now, I also do not remember how to display it now, but is the last one available from toshiba.
