Bug Description

I know an installation process is not meant to be suspended in first place, but suspending one leads the user straight to the live session (I guess that's a way to let the start over again the installation)

Steps:

1º Create USB live stick with YY latest iso(beta2)
2º Boot from USB on hw
3º Select language and continue
4º Connect to Wi-Fi network available
5º Suspend when in "Preparing to install Ubuntu" screen for example
6º Wake it up and wait until it breaks

Expected result: I think it should wake up in the same step it was before suspending with out any issue.

Actual result: When it wakes up, mouse does not respond then goes to black screen and finally ubiquity live session appears. If you try to install it'll always fails

Add info: pic attached with the error given, when trying to install from live session after waking up from suspend

Confirming. I think this is something to fix in casper, where we'll need to identify the exact process by which suspending/resuming starts up X/lightdm/unity overtop ubiquity-dm, which is what appears to be happening here.

affects: ubiquity (Ubuntu) → casper (Ubuntu)
Changed in casper (Ubuntu):
