Issues after installing Ubuntu 10.10 to an external HDD.


I installed Ubuntu 10.10 to an external HDD. The install went off without any problems or errors and the external HDD boots no problem on many different computers. Ubuntu runs great except for one problem. After I put the computer into sleep/standby mode it doesn't come out of standby mode properly. On some machines I get a black screen and a cursor on others I get some error messages. I then have to force a shut down and reboot. There is no problem going into standby or doing a regular shut down.

I can't find anything on this with Google and have posted on some other forums and have no responses on it from them. Hopefully I can get an answer here. Thanks.

It may be an issue with Ubuntu 10.10, unless this is affecting the way your computer works, I would not worry about this.

I used to have some issues with suspend modes in ubuntu and sometimes the problem resides in some apm or acpi configuration.

With synaptic, install the s2ram package and then execute it. If it doesn't work, try with the -f parameter to force it.

I also have 10.10 on a USB stick. I used Universal USB installer to put 10.10 on it with persistance and there is no issues with sleep/standby with it

I did a regular install of 10.10 on the external HDD so I think the problem is with the different types of installs.

It's a problem because I'm forced to shut down when I'd rather not.

Didn't see s2ram package in synaptic.
