http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, After some googling, and finding very old bugs (7.04 ubuntu, and without fixes). Issue : 1) Let laptop sit for a while 2) Screen first goes black (backlight works) 3) Screen goes fully dark (laptop is still on) 4) attempting to "wake" the laptop by moving touchpad, or keyboard fails to work. Power key fails to shut down the laptop. 5) Using usb mouse (plugged in after the issue) wakes up the screen and provides password prompt to unlock the laptop Hardware : Messbon E300 netbook. Thanks for any help :) (Hardware)
