My ( Jolla has started to sometimes fail to wake up after having been put to sleep using gesture (swipe from top of home screen). The same symptom doesn't seem to show up when it has been put to sleep using the power button. However, I haven't had time to thoroughly test this thesis.

When trying to wake it up, the backlight comes on but nothing else happens. Logging in using ssh and killing lipstick brings the display back to life.

Here are som dmesg dumps, don't know if they help:

Just woke the device and started getting graphical glitches (colored noise) every couple of seconds, like something was reinitializing in the display stack.

This bug occurs very often to me... To reproduce it just unlock and lock (with swipe down gesture) some times. I was unable to bring my screen back today - I had to reboot to fix it.

This is a serious bug please fix it quickly.

I'we had this problem for some time, but sometimes the phone woke up if I was patient enough to wait a while. But now after updating to it's even worse. Now i have to reboot the device every time it fails to wake up.

I facing the same issue. I've noticed that (in my case), it's only happening when my Messages app is in cover mode. It doesn't happen when this app is not running.

I can be wrong : this is only what I am noticing :)

Sometimes the "fade to black" used in swipe from top of the screen stays active over display off+on. There is internal jolla bug ticket for that.

Meanwhile the display should recover with swipe from top (restarts the fade animation) or bottom (shows events view).

I can confirm this on at least two devices, first noticed it after the recent update.
