When I suspend the computer and try to wake it, the keyboard's backlight goes on and the power light turns on, but the screen stays black. I have to hard reset the computer to get it to work again.

Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade? Was there a prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest v4.10 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

After I submitted this report, I upgraded to kernel 4.6 to see if that helped. It did not, but when I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.10, the bug resolved itself.

I too have a Dell XPS 9360, and I'm still experiencing this issue running the latest 4.10 kernel on 16.04 LTS with HWE-Edge:

$ uname -a
Linux blackhole 4.10.0-14-generic #16~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 17 17:28:20 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I can confirm I have all the latest updates and firmware.
