• Screen stays blank after suspend/sleep/closing lid

    I run Antergos with xfce on a ThinkPad X220.

    A few weeks ago, my screen stopped “waking up” whenever my system goes to sleep (i.e. after the laptop has been idle for too long or whenever I close the lid).

    Any ideas what’s going on?

  • Bump. This is still a constant problem for me.

    Since linux 3.16, some backlight-related kernel parameter defaults have been changed, causing the hardware brightness up/down keys to no longer function automatically. This can be worked around by setting acpi_osi, e.g.

    acpi_osi="!Windows 2012"

    in the kernel parameters.
