I've been hacking on an ancient #thinkpad r50e. Despite best efforts, I can't get the thing to wake up properly from suspend or hibernate.

Goes to bed as expected, and won't wake up.

Would love some help if you have any ideas.

Debian minimal install with i3wm. Acpi appears functional, acpi-support configured correctly by every guide I could find.

I'm stumped at this point, and not closing the lid without a plan. :)


This is really basic, so apologies if it's obvious, but you do have a swap partition, right?


Valid question.

Yes, necessary because of low amount of RAM.

The drive is encrypted with lvm.
