Eternal sleep of the Thinkpad R51 or how to wake it up


Good day everyone,

I am new here and new to Bodhi but not new to Linux or Unix type systems so I know my way around reasonably well although not what I would call a power user yet. I searched the forum first to see if this had come up before and found nothing so if this has been covered already apologies.

Anyway I had to get an old IBM R51 up and going again and I installed the 32bit Legacy install of Bodhi 5.0 and I have to say I am very very impressed. I doubt the computer ran this well brand new in 2004. But I have run into a bit of a snag. I found the settings to put the laptop to sleep when the lid is closed and that works great but I cannot seem to get it to wake up again. I suspect it might be because IBM used to love having their own fancy function keys for everything from accessing the BIOS to turning the night light off and on. I am wondering if this can be taken care of with a keyboard layout profile or is there somewhere I can setup custom key bindings to wake up the laptop?

i'd start here:

maybe the article titled ACPI - something.

Thinkpad r51 and ubuntu distros

Hello,

I have Bodhi 5, 64 bit on another Thinkpad machine i686,
(from Europe), accepting ethernet-only.

However, I did get my Thinkpad R51 to accept 18.04 Ubuntu xfce. wifi/eth.,
I thinks its an xubuntu.
It runs just a bit slow.

My suspend goes into a blackout then it needs a reboot.
Logging-out is another option.

The major problem for R51, is in the future if 32 bit is discontinued from linux distros.

The 64 bits are taking over.

never had an issue but i suspend and not hibernate. i suspend close laptop and open - i do have password n so enter pw and it works.

if i remember in hibernate i had to hit the power button for it to come back out of hibernate. it may take a second or two for it to happen. may try it again in a bit and get back. i have firewood to get in before rains start - they are almost here. so crunched time-wise.

weird, just tried to hibernate via menu and it doesn't hibernate correctly - beeps and then goes to login password screen. as i said i never use it but use suspend - it always worked the few times i tired it so maybe a setting is set or a glitch from some update - i have the opposite issue than you... heh heh.
