I occasionally have a problem with my Dell XPS M1530 that is somewhat
similar. I will place the laptop into power saving mode, then I open
the lid and press the power button to wake it up, and the lights
flicker for a second and shut back off. To "reset" it, I press and
hold the power button for 5ish seconds, then press it again. I don't
know at what point your wake-up process is failing, but maybe this

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 (Netbook Remix) on an eee Box (1006, I
think). It originally came with XP, but I installed Ubuntu over that
(not dual boot).
It's been running great for a couple of months now, but I had the
brilliant idea of putting it into hibernation yesterday - and I can't
get the damn thing to wake back up.
All I see is splash screen that says 'eee Box'. I have tried a hard
(power button) reboot, but I end up in the same place. I don't even
get a chance to edit the bios settings or anything. It's not really
booting, I guess, because it thinks it is in hibernation.
It's almost like it's waiting for input from the keyboard, but I can't
talk to it. We have a wireless bluetooth mouse and keyboard attached,
which seem to be off. I have attached a usb keyboard to the box, but it
doesn't light up (caplocks, etc.). It's like this box is in a coma!
I'd appreciate any clues anyone could offer as to how to either send the
box a signal to wake itself back up, or alternatively how I can force it
to reboot. I have tried unplugging the power cable for a few minutes,
but that doesn't help. I also tried attaching a cd drive with a Live CD
in it, but since it's not really booting, it doesn't boot the disk.
