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
