I have a Dell Inspiron 15R with Intel® Ivybridge Mobile Graphics. I upgraded to Ubuntu vanilla and the latest version (16.04) few days back. Each time I close the laptop lid with the power source plugged in, and reopen it, a blank screen appears. A forced restart using the hardware button is necessary at this point. If the lock screen is activated, after a time it goes black. Even when on plugged on or on battery, if unused or locked, the same happens and a manual reboot is required for it to start. The CPU is running but I cant get to the login screen

    @Videonauth This question is wrongly marked as a duplicate! The linked question asks about not being able to suspend by closing the lid. This one asks about blank screen after resuming.

Seems to match something I've seen already for 14.04:


File a new bug, and for now try the workaround from here:

map some key combination to: xrandr --auto and you'll get your screen back by pressing it.
