My work laptop (HP nc6000) have problems with its suspend facility. This is of course causes me many inconveniences. So when I got a moment to spare, I set Google on the loose for the solution.
I quickly found the explanation & the solution here. Basically, it’s the proprietary version of ATI (the graphic card) driver that’s causing this.
The solution :
1. Click on System – Administration – Restricted Drivers Manager
2. Disable “ATI accelerated graphic driver”
And that’s it.
Ubuntu automatically switches to the open-source version of ATI driver, and my laptop will now happily suspend again. Yay for open-source driver ! 😀
I’m going to write up the report to the successful Ubuntu/Linux seminar yesterday, but need to do a few things first. Stay tuned.
