Hi all, when I close the laptop lid, the screen switches off but does not come back on when it is reopened. A HARD REBOOT IS THEN REQUIRED. I suspect that it is not suspending as I left it with the lid closed for a while and it became pretty hot,considering it was doing nothing. Looking through the forums, I have come across several similar situations but none have been helpful to me as I am a complete nube and need fairly specific advise. It would be nice if there was an easy way to put it into hibernate or suspend and it is esential that it doesn't crash just because I have shut the lid! There is no battery indicator either. Is this relevant?
It is not just Puppy that has probs with the lid, 5 other distros I tried were the same, and ubuntu is the only one i have tried which worked ok. Am I (re)opening a can of worms here? Hope someone can help or even just offer an explanation of what is going wrong. Cheers, Mike.
