Bug Description

Since Ubuntu 17.10 (development version) my computer can go to sleep mode but it cannot wake up. It used to work fine with Ubuntu 17.04

I tried with both Gnome and Unity. The computer correctly goes to sleep mode. I can hear the power management unit specific click when it's done.

If I try to wake up the computer (by using the power button, as I used to do on 17.04), some devices wake up like the keyboard and the mouse, but the monitor stays off.

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to . Please test the latest v4.14 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.

I tried with Linux 4.14.0-041400rc3-generic, the problem is still there unfortunately.

I attached a piece of /var/log/kern.log when I did the suspend/resume.

It seems that my AMD RX 480 is causing the problem. I wonder who should be contacted to get more help about this hardware/driver.

We have mostly the same lspci output, Kai Heng. I attach a picture of the comparison.

I'm going to visit and hopefully someone will understand what is happening with that bug.

Please note that I reinstalled Ubuntu 17.10 completely (the first time was an upgrade from 17.04) to eliminate any residual component that may interfere with the test. The results are the same.

I also tried sleep mode from an USB live flash drive installation of Ubuntu 17.10. The result is a bit different: on wake-up, the monitor powers on and displays the desktop, but the desktop is frozen and only a corrupted mouse cursor can be moved.

Hi Hadrien,

I'm facing the exact same issue with my RX 580. At first I thought it was a Wayland problem but as you describe, the same issue happens with Xorg.

Good news: Ubuntu 17.10 will receive Kernel 4.3.11 [1]

Not sure when though, but we should get it sooner rather than later :)

Oh, that's good news. Thank you for the feedback, Pierre.
