Black screen on resume from suspend to RAM

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – This is my first post so please bear with me. I have Xubuntu(12.04) and Fedora17KDE spin installed on my netbook. While Xubuntu wakes up neatly, Fedora gets stuck at the black screen while resuming. After going through the pm-suspend.log file I realized that vbetools was not installed. I installed the vbetools package. Still resume throws up a black screen. Now the log file has something different to say: Thu Aug 16 16:07:46 IST 2012: performing suspend Thu Aug 16 16:07:51 IST 2012: Awake. Thu Aug 16 16:07:51 IST 2012: Running hooks for resume Running hook /usr/lib64/pm-utils/sleep.d (HowTos)
