Nothing on display after suspend/resume

I am using sidux (based on sid).

I changed my /boot/grub/menu.lst to configure suspend/resume like this ...

The UUID provided belongs to my swap partition which is almost 1GB.


# kopt=root=UUID=353cc61f-ede4-46c1-8d7f-b678de74678a ro quiet vga=791
resume=UUID=25184dd8-abc9-41c8-ae89-7c7ef875fed4  # in case the kernel is changed

title      Debian GNU/Linux, kernel Default
root        (hd0,4)
kernel      /boot/vmlinuz root=UUID=353cc61f-ede4-46c1-8d7f-b678de74678a ro quiet vga=791  resume=UUID=25184dd8-abc9-41c8-ae89-7c7ef875fed4 #for normal resume
initrd      /boot/initrd.img

After that, I can suspend my computer using powersave -u command, but while resuming, I get only a black screen, I see a lot of activity of my hard-disk and I can hear the fans running, so I think that resume is working, but there is something with the display.

Any, ideas ?

thanks & regards,

It's an ACPI issue that still is being fixed. I have the same problem, and not too many people can get suspend/hibernate working.

Here's some troubleshooting about it:

Thanks, angryfirelord.

I think that the first one given in you link is causing problem for me, but I cannot use the solution because I have an ATI card, not n-vidia.

So, is it not possible to have suspend/resume working on Dell -Inspiron ?
