Laptop won´t wake up after sleep

Thu Feb 08, 2018 9:34 pm

So I just installed Solus Mate and when I closed my laptop and wake it up after 30 minutes, the screen would light up but stay in black.

This issue also happened in Linux Mint. Ive got a an ASUS X556U.

Experienced similar until I got the correct graphics driver installed (Intel Xorg in my case, not installed by default for some reason..). After resume I had to switch to a VT: [Ctrl]+[Alt]+F1 then back to X [Ctrl]+[Alt]+F7 to activate the X display.

What video card and driver are you using? From a terminal run command:

Code: Select all

inxi -G
to confirm your details. I suspect graphics driver is the issue...
