Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 54751
Screen stays black after trying to wake up from suspend
Last modified: 2013-04-09 15:03:36 UTC
If I suspend my computer, I can't wake it up again. There is some activity going on because I can see that my led icons for wifi and hdd light up. But screen stays black and I can only switch the computer off and on at this point. This does not happen with kernel 3.7.9. My computer is Toshiba Portege 11M. Please, let me know if you further information.
Please let me know what kernel version has this problem, v3.8?
And if possible, can you please ssh to your system after resume and attach the dmesg here? Thanks.

Messages from the point when resume event occurred
It happens for 3.8.1. I don't know about 3.8.0 because my distribution (fedora) jumped from 3.7.9 to 3.8.1. Hopefully it will be possible to fix somehow.
System resumed fine, looks like a drm graphics driver issue to me. Move it for graphics guys.
3.7.9 no problem, 3.8.1 has this problem: after resume, screen is blank.
Can you please retest with 3.9-rc2, just to exclude that it's not a duplicate with one of the recently fixed bugs?
Also please boot a broken kernel with drm.debug=0xe added to your kernel cmdline, reproduce the resume failure and attach the kernel log.
Finally a kernel bisect of this issue is always really helpful, my favourite guide is
It works already under kernel 3.8.3.
Thanks for reporting back and please reopen this bug if it breaks again.
