[Bug 1904153] Re: What happens when I suspend my computer? - No explanation given


Thanks for your report.

The page in question is part of the Ubuntu Desktop Guide, which
primarily targets inexperienced users. So it's not the right place to
elaborate and include technical details.

It's unfortunate that you experience problems with suspend. Please feel
free to submit a bug report about that:

ubuntu-bug systemd

or add your observations via a comment on some of the already existing
suspend related bugs:

  What happens when I suspend my computer? - No explanation given

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  There is an article about What happens when I suspend my computer?


  This article contains no information about what happens when I suspend
  the computer.

  The current explanation is "computer will sleep" - this is wrong.

  A computer can not sleep. 
  A human or an animal can sleep. 

  I expected some more non-symbolic, non-childish explanation about what
  happens in Ubuntu when suspend is selected on the logout dialog box.
  Especially I wanted to know if a harddisk is needed, if I need a swap
  space, if only ram is used and so on.

  Yes, of course I wanted to know more about that because in 2020 Ubuntu
  still has problems with suspend - this is so sad.

  I suggest writing some more technically detailed explanation about
  what really happens when "I suspend my computer".
