[Bug 1283938] Re: [Samsung NP535U4X-S01TH] Ubuntu 14.04 blank screen after wakeup from sleep


Further tests of versions of kernels 3.11 and 3.13, and Xstacks saucy and trusty on 12.04 showed only black screens. 
=> Now saucy too !!

But I've found a workaround for my config/setup 
(12.04 with kernel and Xstack from trusty with nvidia driver, lightdm with kde, and only hibernate used);

Boot your system to lightdm, then login to your Desktop Environment , let it finish ...
After that logout back to lightdm screen and login again !
=> Now try to hibernate, after the resume there is no black screen anymore and you can unlock the screen and use your desktop!!

My résumé after testing is that maybe there is a race condition in the services/daemons (acpid, dbus, lightdm) or different bugs are playing together (Kernel, X, drivers, daemons). 
That's why I've downgraded lightdm's version in 12.04, but without success, only the workaround, described above, helps for me.

Please help to solve this nasty bug, because it is now in 12.04 too !

Maybe lightdm changes? Or system components like dbus?

lightdm (1.2.3-0ubuntu2.3) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/guest-account: disable screen locking in a more reliable way.
    Rather than trying to write a key for another user, while setting up the
    guest user account, just set up an autostart desktop that will set it
    during the login (lp: #951000)

  [Samsung NP535U4X-S01TH] Ubuntu 14.04 blank screen after wakeup from

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In 14.04 after wakeup from suspend, the notebook screen goes blank
  while the OS and the hardware is awake (I can also press Ctrl+F1 and
  Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot the system).

  Changeing "quiet splash" to "nomodeset" in /etc/default/grub allows
  the wakeup, but the pc is really slow (can't be used).
