[Bug 1575250] Re: close laptop lid = complete system freeze


Alistair Buxton, as per http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products
an update to your computer's buggy, insecure, and outdated BIOS is
available (24CN62WW). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.

Also, you don't have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, if the problem is still reproducible:
1) Please provide the output of the following terminal command (not perform an apport-collect):
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
2) Please make a comment specifically advising on if there was an improvement or not.
3) Please mark this report Status Confirmed.

If it's not reproducible, please mark this as Invalid.

Thank you for your understanding.

  close laptop lid = complete system freeze

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  To reproduce:

  1. Close laptop lid.
  2. Wait a couple of minutes.
  3. Open laptop lid.

  Result: the screen remains powered off and the system will not respond
  in any way. Pressing keys does nothing. Pressing the power button does
  nothing. There is no disk activity but the power light is lit. The
  only thing you can do is press the power button for four seconds or
  remove the battery.
