this is not limited to bodhi but many distros i try on my new computer. it will sleep once but if i wake it and try to sleep again, it will never successfully sleep (or wake).
On the first try, i close the lid of my hp envy 15 amd laptop, and after a second or two it goes to sleep (you hear the fan turn off and the light on the side flashes softly). this is consistent behavior for this system in windows 8.1 (although linux sleeps much faster). When i open the lid, the screen displays the desktop and within seconds i am functional again.
However, if i try to close the lid again, the fan never ceases and the light on the side stays lit constantly. i wait several seconds, even minutes but it does not change. opening the lid does not produce the desktop but a blank, black screen. the system does not respond to any input, including the power button which usually starts the shutdown process. i am forced to power off with a long press of the power button.
