    Installed this kernel 4.12.5 on my Ubuntu Mate 16.04.3 lts (64 bit) with UKUU.
    All went perfect, untill my computer went in sleep mode.
    After waking up, the screen was back, but did not respond to any mouse clicks or keyboard input.
    So I went back to the previous kernel version 4.4.00.91, and all is working fine again.
    Maybe this should be reported as a bug, but I have no idea how to do this.
