I have been using elementary OS on my laptop for nearly a month now and have had a lot of trouble with both hibernation and suspend (resuming to a black screen or frozen desktop). Hibernation is the most troublesome, to the point where I've given up on getting it to work. The biggest issue however is this:
[24966.962483] EXT4-fs error (device sda7): ext4_iget:4389: inode #1051637: comm updatedb.mlocat: bogus i_mode (0) [24966.992891] Aborting journal on device sda7-8. [24967.012781] EXT4-fs (sda7): Remounting filesystem read-only [24967.012820] EXT4-fs error (device sda7): ext4_iget:4389: inode #1051638: comm updatedb.mlocat: bogus i_mode (0) [24967.037617] EXT4-fs error (device sda7): ext4_iget:4389: inode #1051639: comm updatedb.mlocat: bogus i_mode (0) [24967.048450] EXT4-fs error (device sda7): ext4_journal_check_start:56: Detected aborted journal
This has happened a total of five times now either when coming out of hibernate or waking from sleep. Each time after restarting I either get a message telling me to run
fsck manually or, most commonly, just
grub>. In either case, booting from a live USB and running
fsck -y /dev/sda7 fixes things for a bit but it's not a cure. I even reinstalled two weeks ago for an unrelated reason but it happened again yesterday after waking my laptop from sleep. What I want to know is why this keeps happening and how to fix it for good.
Edit: Also I dual boot with Windows 10
Edit 2: It's been a while (months) and the original issue hasn't quite been resolved, but things aren't as bad as before which makes me think either something was fixed in an update or I just have some dodgy hardware. Regarding the error that I first posted, I haven't seen that one since then and haven't been forced to run
fsck either. Still, I don't hibernate anymore.
I checked the SMART data and while I'm not too sure what to make of it, I think the section labeled ATA error count should be zero.
Edit 3: So the computer in question had an unfortunate encounter with some hot coffee a few months ago and has been replaced. My new laptop has an SSD partitioned between Windows 10 and Elementary and it handles sleep perfectly. I can't say anything about hibernation since I don't have a swap partition but honestly, I've gotten use to using sleep only so it's not a big deal anymore.
I'm willing to close this as a hardware issue with my older laptop since I don't trust any computer that throws IO errors and would have replaced the hard drive at some point. Thanks to everyone who replied!
