  • At time or writing, the workaround was to downgrade your BIOS to 1.2.0

    An alternative is to log in (although you don't see your login screen), and then pump up your brightness to max.

    For your configuration, keep an eye on this wiki.

    UPDATE (Alternative Solution for 16.04):

    This also solved the problem for me on a newer version of the BIOS:

    Create a script:

    sudo nano /lib/systemd/system-sleep/97fixbacklight

    Contents:

    #!/bin/sh
    # From patchwork.freedesktop.org/.../
    # and en.community.dell.com/.../19985320
    # Suspend Resume fails to restore PWM_GRANUALITY
    # Based on script by Tony.Jewell@Cregganna.Com
    
    
    INTEL_REG=/usr/bin/intel_reg
    ADDR="0x000c2000"
    SAVE_FILE=/var/lib/systemd/save_intel_reg_pwm_granuality
    
    
    [ -x "$INTEL_REG" ] || exit 0
    
    
    case "$1" in
            pre)
            echo "$0: Saving Intel Register PWM_GRANUALITY"
            "$INTEL_REG" read "$ADDR" \
                | (read addr value && echo "$value") \
                >"$SAVE_FILE"
        sync
        ;;
        post)
            value=`cat "$SAVE_FILE" 2>/dev/null`
            if [ -n "$value" ]
            then
                echo "$0: Restoring Intel Register PWM_GRANUALITY $value"
                "$INTEL_REG" write "$ADDR" "$value"
                rm "$SAVE_FILE"
            fi
        ;;
    esac
    

    Give it the right permissions:

    sudo chmod +755 /lib/systemd/system-sleep/97fixbacklight

    Restart
