Solus Mate: Hibernate Not Working
Open, NormalPublic


When my battery is critically low, Solus hibernates, but after I plug in my laptop, everything seems frozen and slow/laggy. I have to force my laptop off by holding the power button and restarting and fortunately none of my Firefox tabs get lost. When I was on Linux Mint, it restored from Hibernation much better. Maybe this is happening because I installed Solus 2017.01.01.0 originally ? Can this be fixed by applying updates or would I have to reinstall Solus ?

Definitely apply all updates and try again.

I don't see any updates now.

I manually pressed Hibernate now and after my laptop turned off and I pressed the power button, it started again normally as though I had shut down. It should have shown a message saying "resuming from hibernate" or similar and shown System Monitor and Firefox open after I entered my password.

We've sinec then had several and also a major update to mate, is this still largely an issue or is it resolved?

Yes it's still broken with Mate 1.20 and all updates installed. In power management settings I changed it to suspend when critically low on battery so that my session is saved until I plug into a power source.

Thanks for updating us on this.

Also when I set "When battery power is critically low" to Suspend like this:

I see this when it's about to suspend:

And when I woke from suspend, everything was slow and I had to force shut down my laptop.
And I think the " <br><b>NOTE:</b> " is meant to make part of that notification text bold ? I guess that's a Mate bug.

I installed Solus 3 Mate on my new ThinkPad E480 and hibernate doesn't work when I click it manually.
It just looks like the screen gets locked.

I can reproduce this with updated Solus Mate on my laptop.
