I'm currently running Linux Mint 10 (Ubuntu 10.10) on my Thinkpad W500 and have encountered an annoying issue... essentially I get an intermittent hang when I attempt to restart or logout.

This problem has been made more visible as of late possibly due to my screwing around with the hybrid switcheroo configurations (see: if you dare) but I don't know if this is the root cause... at least I don't recall directly if this problem started only when I made the changes detailed in the switcheroo procedure.

What is odd is that when I attempt to reboot via an application (in this case the UNetBootin utility) everything seems to work fine, however, attempting to do the same via the main desktop "Menu" usually causes a hang.

Although I've done my best with the details I know the description above is still vague, however, being relatively new to Linux (at least for anything beyond a regular user) I'm not sure where to start in terms of troubleshooting...

Executing dmesg (and grep'ing for "error") gives me the following:

[ 2.321362] [drm:atom_op_jump] *ERROR* atombios stuck in loop for more than 1sec aborting
[ 2.321367] [drm:atom_execute_table_locked] *ERROR* atombios stuck executing F6D8 (len 487, WS 0, PS 4) @ 0xF719
[ 3.361344] [drm:atom_op_jump] *ERROR* atombios stuck in loop for more than 1sec aborting
[ 3.361348] [drm:atom_execute_table_locked] *ERROR* atombios stuck executing F6D8 (len 487, WS 0, PS 4) @ 0xF719

(from the output of dmesg executed after a hard restart)

Additionally it seems that I am unable to "wake" my laptop once it suspends or goes to sleep.

Any ideas?

I saw this bug report the other day (in regards to suspend problem on ThinkPads). Don't know if the solution(s) have any relevance to your problem or not.

I had hang problems on boot-up and shutdown on my 3000 n100 with Ubuntu.
Sometimes it wouldn't happen but more often than not it would occur several times in a row before it would NOT occur.
After various Ubuntu updates, it occurred less and less. It hasn't happened again in, oh, a few weeks now.

I don't know if this will help, but Linux Mint 10 has been flawless with regard to suspend and resume on my X200s. I'm using this kernel (output of 'uname -a'):

Linux x200s 2.6.35-22-generic-pae #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 22:16:51 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

It's working so well, I've decided to not do any more updates, especially of the kernel.

I tend not to shutdown or logout, preferring to suspend instead, but the few times I've done those operations I didn't see any hangs.

It would be interesting to know which kernels have been in use on the hanging machines.

X200s (Linux Mint 13), T61 (Linux Mint 17), X60s (Linux Mint 17), T60p (Linux Mint 13), R61 (Linux Mint 13), X41 (Linux Mint 13), R50p (Linux Mint 13), A21m (Linux Mint 7), 380Z (TinyMe Linux, inactive)
