[Bug 1327625] Re: system spontaneously awakes from sleep; other sleep problems


slowtrain, as per http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4063&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=5171116#N1791 an update to your BIOS is available (F.1C). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate does it change anything?  If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

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

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Thank you for your understanding.

  System spontaneously awakes from sleep; other sleep problems

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I added KDE to an Ubuntu installation.  When I'm in KDE, I've had
  numerous problems with suspend to RAM, even though I don't believe I
  had these problems in Unity.

  The particular problem I just had, so perhaps the data apport
  collected spotted something, was this:  I deliberately suspended to
  RAM.  A few seconds later, the computer woke up without my doing
  anything (did not touch the keyboard, etc.).  This has happened
  numerous times.  For a while, I had to suspend twice whenever I wanted
  the suspend to take hold.

  [Other suspend problems, but which have not occurred just now:  a)
  system freezes when I initiate a suspend--have to hard shutdown
  otherwise computer keeps running with nothing showing on either
  display; b) system goes into suspend, and wakes right back up again a
  few seconds later, for no apparent reason--can happen when I'm
  watching a video or editing some text; c) system suspends and wakes up
  when I move between activities]

  I erased the contents of various system logs to see what records were
  being generated when the problem occurs.  Only two logs showed any
  addition of material (from empty)--pm-suspend and pm-powersave.  I'm
  attaching them here.  Because other logs will have no content, I'll
  attach some older logs in case there's something that might be useful.

  Best wishes figuring this out!
