Ubuntu – Thinkpad T61 won’t wake from sleep / suspend 13.04

sleepsuspendthinkpad

My laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 with intel graphics card running 13.04. I'm pretty sure that when my battery gets too low, the laptop suspends itself, but when i plug it back in, it won't come on. Actually, if I've been playing music or video, i can hear the sound, often glitching and skipping, but there is absolutely no response from the monitor. The indicator lights come on, as if the computer is running, but no buttons work provoke a response, except when I hold the power button down for an extended time to shut the computer off.
Please help: almost everything else on the computer works perfectly.
Thanks guys.

I had this same problem. Upon reboot, I went into Ubuntu Advanced and changed linux boot kernel from 3.8.x to 3.5.x and I have no issue when rebooting. Hope this helps you as well.
