When I close the lid, Elementary suspends the system. However, when I try to restart, it keeps flashing the screen with junk without ever recovering. The only option I have is to do a hard reset. Is there a fix for this?
As already said in the comment, using a live-system
suspend won't resume. The cause is the missing swap partition (or file) with an appropriate filesystem (i.e. not
tmpfs). If you insist on using a live-system, you may:
- config your live-system to never go to sleep and to not suspend when closing the lid, or
- add another writeable drive (USB, SDHC), format with e.g.
ext2and create a swap file there.
