Anyone else have these bugs? (Natty 11.04)

I tend to use my stand-by mode a lot on my laptop, since I’m lazy and don’t always want to wait for boot-up, I usually just want to login and get going. However since upgrading to Natty I’ve noticed a few bugs after coming out of stand-by mode, I’m not sure if it’s just my machine, or if anyone else has had these, but please do let me know if you have!

The bugs I’ve noticed so far;

  • When I log in after coming out of stand-by mode, I notice the launcher in Unity disappears and turns to a static like TV screen. (If you can imagine the static on a TV.) However I can solve this just by running the mouse over it, and it sorts itself out.
  • If I’ve left the laptop on stand-by for about 5 or so hours, I turn the laptop on, and my machine starts up but I get no display and my “Caps lock” key flashes even though I never have the caps lock on in the first place.

I’m not sure if maybe this has something to do with ACPI, I haven’t tried running Unity without it, but I may give it ago. Has anyone else has these bugs?

  • BkS.

Are you using the Unity compiz plugin ? that made my launcher behave like you said occasionally, but it is labled as “experimental” ATM.

If your Caps lock and Scroll lock lights are flashing… this indicated an unrecoverable “kernel panic”… you’ll need to look in the logs for clues as to what is causing it.

I am indeed, like I said it’s not a big deal to me I understand it’s still in it’s beta stages with Unity being fairly new.

Anything I should look out for specifically? It’s happens 4/5 times in the last 3 days, I’ve had to shutdown the laptop via the “power button” which I know isn’t good for it’s health. Lol.
