Bug Description

When trying to resume after suspending my Lenovo Yoga 3 11, sometimes the screen remains black. The power LED switches from blinking to continuous light like it should but nothing else happens. The system does not react to anything. I tried to find something in the logs, but at least kern.log syslog and xorg.log never have any entries from this event.

This problem appeared with Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.04 with Xorg and Wayland.

I'm currently testing Kernel 4.8 from the mainline ppa because of this other suspend resume bug, that appeared only with 17.04:

Update: So far I did not encounter any issues with suspend/resume with Kernel 4.8 and 4.9. This seems to be a regression in 4.10.

Trying Kernel 4.11 since yesterday. So far no blackscreens but I think I should test it for a longer duration. Unfortunately Kernel 4.11 is no real solution for me because of another suspend/resume bug that as far as I can tell at the moment might exist since Kernel 4.9.

Got a blackscreen with Kernel 4.11. Unfortunately kern.log and syslog don't have any entries about it.
