comment Screen corruption after hibernate — Is there another way to refresh the X11 display?
I had the exact same thing on Debian 6, upgrading to Debian 7 and upgrading to the new kernel did the trick for me.

I have changed my answer, try the permanent solution which I have already mentioned in the answer before.

One more thing, I also disabled hdd spindown in my GUI power manager for both AC and battery power (Xfce for me). It seams to be working well with hdparm. Try removing hdparm altogether and see if your hdd spinsdown then. You can always install it again and reconfigure.

No, I meant to say that it solves it permanently even after I switch back to AC power and hdparm resets the APM value. When I switch back to battery, although the APM remains the same I don't need to change it as I find that the hdd doesn't spindown anymore.

Yes it resets it back, but it fixed the problem for me nonetheless. It doesn't spindown the hdd anymore when on battery.

Try the reduction I suggested. Also try setting it via gui and then save it with alsactl store. Must be a Mint bug.

OK, try setting it below 100% like 80%, execute sudo alsactl store and reboot. I think this might be a Mint only bug where you cannot set it above 100%.

You need sudo for alsactl store. Try amixer set Master 152%

Oh, OK. Run the terminal/console type in sudo amixer set Master 152, enter your root (super user) password. Then run the second command sudo alsactl store, enter your root (super user) password again. Reboot. Done.
