Re: Laptop fails to suspend


Unless I am mistaken, Buster is still in development/testing?

If thats the case, I would expect behavior exactly like that.

As to troubleshooting it? My guess is you would have to be a talented program, to debug, and code your own modules.

I have an older Lenovo T520 laptop that I've ran Debian on for years and 
I have never had any issues with putting it to "sleep" or suspending
when closing the lid. However after upgrading from stretch to Buster,
suspend fails to work.

I run KDE and I've tried to suspend from the desktop using the built in
"suspend" button (right next to "shutdown" or "reboot" buttons), as well
as using systemd or pm-suspend from the command line but they all result
in the same issue. The issue is that once the machine starts to go into
suspend mode, the power led flashes and the screen then goes blank.
Normally at this point the power led would stop flashing and would stay
off, however it keeps flashing. I've left it for a couple of minutes but
it never stops. Keyboard is unresponsive and I have to force it to power
off (hold down power button). How might I go about trouble shooting this?
