Ubuntu – Sleep issues on the Razer Blade Stealth. 16.04 LTS


So I have decided to make the leap from Windows to Linux, but I have been having one issue. Whenever I close the lid of my laptop, it goes into sleep mode, and when I open the lid, it comes back awake. My issue is, that 30 seconds or a minute into use, it auto goes into sleep for NO reason, I don't know why it does this. I then have to press the power button to get it to wake, but then it just repeats, I have to completely power off to fix it. Any solutions? I can provide info as needed, provided you tell me how to get that info.

Editing the grub boot parameters as suggested here did the job for me (on 16.10)

  1. Open a terminal and run

    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    which will open a texteditor

  2. Search for GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT = "" (which was empty in my case) and change it to

  3. Save and close gedit

  4. update grub with the following command in the terminal

    sudo update-grub
  5. Restart
