Is anyone here using RISC OS on their Pi?

Since I just had to dig it out for another reason... this still contains useful info, I reckon.

I had the same issue on an old Thinkpad X31. It was stranded by Ubuntu dropping non-PAE kernels after 12.04. I managed to coax 13.04 onto it using the FakePAE patch:

But other things broke. Now, there's an in-kernel ForcePAE kernel switch...

Using this, I tried 14.04 on it. Lots of things didn't work right, including no wifi and the colour corruption on resume that you describe.

So I gave in and went back to 12.04, by the means of LXLE. Works really well, all my hardware works, and it's still getting updates and will for a few years yet.

Frankly, IMHO, it's easier than fighting to keep using h/w that's no longer properly supported by later Linuxes.

There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys & there is empirical evidence that they exist. – Terry Pratchett (b. 1948)

More ranting. Ranting is rather fun.
