I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Ubuntu 16.04. Since I moved over to Ubuntu, I've been having issues with my laptop's sleep mode.
Whenever I sleep the computer, it would leave the screen on, but blank it of all data. In order to escape this mode, I need to forcefully power down my computer using the power button.
Similarly, upon an attempted boot, my system will often drop into a similar behavior where it will power on, display a purple screen, and then get stuck in suspend mode again. If I keep restarting the machine, it will occasionally jump back into working.
Is there anything I can do to solve this issue?
