I did a fresh install of Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.

When booting up it shows the logo and it goes into suspend.

How do I find the issue and fix it?

  • The laptop actually goes to sleep or are you getting a blank screen? – TheWanderer Sep 24 '16 at 16:04
  • It goes to sleep, and it will wake when i press the power button – trazer Sep 24 '16 at 16:24

I think I had almost the same issue after upgrading fom 14.04 on an older SAMSUNG laptop. Even booting from an install media (CD) did not work: The laptop went into suspend or hybernate mode every 10sec.
After booting from an 14.04 install media I could change HandleSuspendKey and HandleLidSwitch to ignore in /etc/systemd/logind.conf. This solved my problem. See: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=178047

  • Having the same issue under Linux 19.1. Editing /etc/systemd/logind.conf as mentioned solved the issue. – JulioHM Jan 1 '19 at 1:31
