"Your computer failed to suspend. Check the help file for
"Visit quirk website."
I have no faintest intimation *what* help file might be
worth a tinker's dam, of whatever clay.
But the button, which tries to launch a browser, points
at http:// people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/ -- which has
failed a couple dozen times with at least half a dozen browsers.
What's more, so have all attempts to truncate that URL
and navigate from there.
Nor do I know more than the spelling of "suspend,"
"sleep," "hibernate," nor any synonym in a computer sense. The
contexts in which I have encountered them have referred to
laptops, which I hardly ever use.
What the blinking blue blazes is going on here? Nothing
short of the reset button ever does much good, and that may have
any of several results, unpredictably, afaict. It may bring up
the display I had last, or a reboot, or things in between.
The machine, however, contains stuff I would be glad to
save; it's the same one that has failed endlessly to upgrade from
F11 to F12, by any means short of a fresh install. I'll start
copying things to media tomorrow, if not today ....

Remember I know little (precious little!) of where up is.
