Xubuntu 13.04 Gateway Suspend Fix


After closing my laptop lid and reopening, waking up from suspend doesn't work right. After entering my password, the screen goes black and it is unusable. On an Ubuntu forum I found this trick:

Add this entry in Settings/Keyboard/Application Shortcuts:

  • Command: xrandr --output LVDS --mode 1366x768 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal
  • Key: Win-X (it will say "Super-X"
After entering your password, press Win-X and your display will appear.

Not elegant, but it does work.
