I have a Lenovo X1 Yoga running Ubuntu 16.10 which up until a couple of months ago had no problems with suspend/wake on lid close. About 3 months ago it started going sleep on lid close but it flatly refuses to wake on lid open. The only way forward it so hard reboot the machine by holding down the power button.

I'm using the laptop to write this post so I can't tell you exactly what happens when I close the lid ( aka "Goes to sleep; no blinking power light" or "Goes to sleep; blinking power light" ) but I've noticed that when I come back after having closed the lid some time ago I get:

1) No blinking green power button LED

2) On lid open, I get blinking green power LED but no display backlight, no keyboard input (tried adjusting backlight as a test), and no desktop/password prompt.

3) A short-press of the power LED doesn't change anything. Nor does fiddling with the keyboard and mouse.

I sort of wonder if lack of a blinking light on the power button means the laptop is going into hibernate mode (as opposed to just suspend as it is configured to do) and perhaps that might be part of the problem.

I also have no real idea how to debug this problem because, while their might be some log output during the suspend phase which I could recover after a power rest, I've not been able to find any sort of logs output about failures during the waking process. If its not even attempting to wake..I supposed that makes sense.

So, is anyone else having similar problems? Have any tips for troubleshooting? Have any tips for a fix?

Thx

I had this issue with a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660D which I owned until last week. I tried everything I could think of and also posted on here about it at some point I believe and the consensus was really that there is nothing to be done on the user end; it's more than likely a fault at Canonical's end. I had it working fine back from U12.04 then around a month after I owned it it started happening just as you described and didn't get rectified with several reinstalls of the OS even through 16.04.

I know this isn't much use, but it's just to let you know that if there is a solution to this it is very niche. I believe it only happens to a small assortment of makes and models (such as some of the original models of the Dell XPS laptops).
