[Bug 1595935] Re: Suspend not working on Ubuntu 16.04


Hi Christopher,

I noticed the tag ;bios-outdated-a10'.
I'm aware of the newer bios being available, but although Dell offers this laptop with Ubuntu preinstalled and supported they somehow don't seem to offer a bios update that is not windoze dependent :-(

Downloaded kernel 4.6-rc7 from mainline as in your instructions and
things are working fine. I can manually suspend and resume and when I
close the lid it goes to sleep nicely. Fan cuts out, hdd spins down.
When opening the lid I'm back where I was, so all works as it should.

Fan is a lot quieter too, so I guess it's using less power now as well.
