Ubuntu – 18.04 Screen remains blank after wake up from suspend


So, when I suspend my laptop, then wake it up later, my laptop does turn on, I'm able to, for example, turn up and down the volume with audio confirmation using the kepboard, but my screen remains black and doesn't show anything until after I restart my laptop.

It is the buggy nouveau driver again. That's what solved the issue for me. Edit the file /etc/default/grub (using Vi editor -- some users have not been able to save after editing in Vi and have had to use the alternate "Ex" editing mode, which substitutes sudo edit below, then Alt+:w and :x for the save and exit commands).

$ sudoedit /etc/default/grub 

Add nouveau.modeset=0 to the line that says GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX then press CtrlO to save the file and CtrlX to leave Editor.


$ sudo update-grub

Now reboot.
