I've recently installed a fresh copy of Linux Mint 18 on my Lenovo T440p and everything is working great except for one thing: I have trouble when resuming from a "Suspend"- I get no GUI, both of my monitors say 'No Input'. Using
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart the X server seems to fix the problem but of course it kills any running apps I had, which defeats the purpose of me using Suspend in the first place. The default kernel version is 4.4.0-21-generic.
I found this question/answer, but unfortunately Kernel
4.5.2-040502-generic causes worse problems for me- my desktop doesn't work right, things are running more slowly, and
dmesg seems to indicate problems (something about a Kernel null dereference- I'm not running the 4.5.2 kernel at the moment so I'm not 100% sure).
So it seems I need a newer version of the Kernel to fix my suspend issue, but I'm not sure how to determine which version I should install. Is this generally a trial by error, or is there someplace that keeps track of the stability of kernel releases?
