    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    Thanks for the info. I accept that the system might not have completed the awake process and some state is invalid and unable to sleep properly after the first failed attempt. The problem is identifying and resolving the issue. As popular as hp systems are, i am surprised this has not happened more often. OK, lets enumerate the details more deliberately. I close the lid (or invoke sleep from the System-Suspend option. The lights on the side flash (as they always did for windows 8) and the single light begins to flash softly as the cpu fan goes quiet. Seems to be asleep (fully or otherwise). I open the lid (or move the mouse if I suspended with system menu) and the cpu fan spins, the screen lights up, the desktop restores, the prompt for a wifi disconnect and then reconnect indicates the wifi resets effectively. I can now use the system for most purposes (tested web browser and confirmed i have functioning wifi, graphics seems to work, all apps tested work). System seems stable but i am happy to pull up a log or whatever to further test the condition. I have pm-utils installed. Even put the system to sleep by invoking sudo pm-utils suspend (i think that was the command) and that seemed to do what closing the laptop lid. Still fails on second attempt to sleep. Additionally, I have recently had a similar problem in windows 10. Normally it will sleep effectively and wakes adequately. Once in a while, with a differing number of attempts, it will fail to wake, just as in linux. I have to resort to turning of the computer with the long press of the power button. (I have never forced the computer to awaken fully by pressing anything). A note: I booted to a live dvd of robolinux (v8 i think). This did NOT have a uefi boot option for the dvd. After booting, it does allow me to sleep and wake repeatedly without an issue. I am guessing that is because it did not use the uefi area of the system for entering information on sleep/wake state. That is a wild guess with no basis in fact. I have not installed this version of linux but would rather get bodhi sleeping and waking correctly. Any ideas now?

    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    OK, i reinstalled ubuntu to its partition and it fixed the uefi boot for both ubuntu and bodhi. now that they both boot again, i verified that each has pm-utils installed but neither can sleep a second time correctly. any other ideas?

    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    Great information. I will test when i can. I need some other assistance, i'm afraid. I installed another distro and it destroyed my bodhi boot. Now when i reboot and choose what is listed as ubuntu, it just shows an error. i have my driver partitioned in 5 partitions (3 used by windows 10, 1 for bodhi, and another for testing other linux distros). i had bodhi installed and booting in uefi and ubuntu in uefi. i tried to install ubuntu, booting to the cd as legacy boot hoping i could install it to boot other than uefi. that is when i lost my normal boot for bodhi, but the partition is still there. how do i recover it so I can test this latest idea?

    sleep once but never again

    i will try to use the menu and see if it works more than once. this is something that worked on previous notebooks, might be something specific to my new laptop. i cannot give you information about after second sleep attempt. the screen is blank and never recovers. i have to hard reboot (and i loose everything). if there is a log i can view, i would be happy to provide that but i need to know where it is. so it wakes after using menu and i can post this. now trying a second sleep with menu. second try to sleep with menu failed the same way. blank screen. solid light. no recovery. i do get a funny prompt on reboot stating that my boot partition was modified. i will try it again and get a picture of it to get the exact wording. Warning!!! Boot script table is modified!!! Please contact your vendor. Does bodhi use uefi to boot or is it legacy boot? Seems a lenovo system using ubuntu also has this problem on second suspend.

    sleep once but never again

    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. any thoughts?

    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    ok, my issue is some unusual hardware. i installed bodhi 3.1 to a sandisk fit 128gb flash drive and it restores perfectly. i was using a mushkin atom 32gb flash. that flash is a 3.0 unit but apparently will not restore for bodhi. anyway, something to explore if anyone wants me to.

    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    You have 3 systems you tested. Is bodhi linux installed to a hard drive or a usb device plugged into a usb 3 port?

    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    Where as the usb2 port is stable and fast in general, the usb3 is substantially faster when enabled properly. any ideas how we can test this so my main usb install of bodhi can be plugged into the usb3 port?

    usb 2 port works every time but usb 3 port seems to always freeze. thoughts?

    bodhi 3.1 wont resume after sleep

    I have bodhi 3.1 installed on a usb flash drive. works well. it is a usb 3 device. i had it on the usb 3 port and that might have been the problem. after trying it 3 or 4 times, it locking up every time, i moved the usb device to my standard usb 2 port. it woke up just fine. i will try it a few more times. now i tried a few other distros (mint, maluku, etc) and they had no problem with my usb 3 port. is this a usb 3 driver thing?
  11. i have an hp envy 15 with an amd a10 processor, 8gb ram, ralink wifi and when the computer is put to sleep and then resumes, the dialog displays saying that the network is disconnected, that goes away. usually, it is followed by a connected dialog box, but instead the system seems to freeze. no mouse motion. no update of applets in panel (clock, cpu governor, temperature all are frozen and non responsive. Let me know what i can try to resolve it.

    general feedback

    OK, a few more observations. I tried to use midori to download google chrome but it would not start the download (no matter how long i waited or how many times i clicked the link). i tried to open midori and all i could see was the minimze/maximize/close buttons and that would not go away. next time i tried to start a midori, it worked correctly. I downloaded an enlightenment theme to install but when i used the theme configuration tool and browsed to the file, it said it could not copy it. econnman has an icon in the tray that does not seem to do much. When i added the network tool for the panel, and clicked the icon, i could see other networks and clicking one of those gave me a dialog to enter security. that worked well. trying econnman again, the wifi was not powered on by default. enabling it would still not allow me to see any networks. i had to run econnman with the -a option to get it to scan and find any networks. then clicking one of those did bring up a dialog which let me connect. once or twice i inadvertently had a window maximize on me but it would not let me restore the window to its original size. midori browser seems slow.

    most everything works

    Sorry, this is a repost as my last post displayed an error instead of a confirmation that the post worked. I removed the duplicate text and present only the additional comments. I have recently tried several distros (Ubuntu, Mint (cinammon and mate), sabayon (xfc and kde), pclinuxos (kde), makulu (xfce), and others. Most did not even get the wireless drivers included. Many times, the windows tear as you move them. Even distros that have a ati driver don't seem to be more fluid than bodhi. xfce and mate are the only competition to enlightenment in terms of panel and panel applets. Most have battery, sound, clock (although most cannnot display as analog) and wireless network. A few have update manager, lcd dimmer, temperature (although only as a graph), and cpu load (again, only as a graph). Almost none have a cpu frequency control and most of those are clunky compared to enlightenments implementation. I miss the resizable ibox ad ibar. i would love to see those back again. Any chance of that?

    general feedback

    Jeff, you do some great work. Your distro is always one of my favorites. Thanks for your efforts.. I will section this so you can ignore what you are not interested in. I am running a live copy of the rd ISO on my new HP envy laptop. It sports an AMD a10 processor, 8gb of ram, a terabyte hd, Bluetooth and a touchscreen. issues major issue is access to software. Hard to evaluate with the few apps in the ISO. I read that the app repository is not ready for 3.0 (or vise versa), so I won't dwell. eppman (or whatever the network manager is) is confusing at best. I am using the wireless driver, which works, but had to be switched on. The main page of the app has an online/offline switch that does not seem to do much. I have to go to the next page, which has both my active but unplugged wired network adapter and my inactive wireless adapter. Clicking to configure my wireless, I have several options but I seem to only need to click the first checkbox (I think it said something about powering the device. Still no wireless networks are found, no matter how long I wait or how many times I click scan. If I exit the tool and restart it, I now see networks. Connecting was confusing and I could never find a way to enter my key. Exiting again, I click on the network manager applet I added to the panel and I see networks and can successfully enter my key (although the size of the panel and layout were awkwardly done, but effective). the enlightenment file manager is a big improvement over previous versions but still rather plain. But very clean and predictable. what works wow, what works . Most everything. I have never had a bodhi version so functional without tweaking. Temperature, sound, battery, video, suspend/sleep, CPU frequency, LCD dimmer, composite, opengl, software updater (although layout is a bit rough and cute rotating animation on transition was a bit choppy).. What an amazing accomplishment. Very impressed (and I don't like giving out complements that are not deserved).

    odd terminal key issue

    Wonderful. I selected 'Most recent Window under the Mouse' and keystrokes are being registered by the fullscreen game. I tried to execute the game by double-clicking on the script in the enlightentment default file manager (which executes it correctly, unlike pcmanfm which will not execute it properly_ but it still failes to see keys. However, the focus settings works perfectly. Anything else anybody want me to test out? Update: ok, not so consistant. I tried the above solution about a dozen times with seemingly consistent results. I did some other work, opening and switching windows multiple times. I then minimized a window or two and retried the original terminal to try the test again. This time, no keys made it to the program. I tried several times, switching windows and experimenting with different focus settings, no luck. Then I used the enlightenment file manager to double-click on the startup script, and keys made it to the program. It is really inconsistant. What can I try now to better identify the real issue?
