I can't suspend my system

I can’t suspend or hibernate my system.
after I suspend (or hibernate) my system, it’s goes to a black screen and then I can’t turn on the system again. The noteworthy point is that my cooling fans are working hard and my light check is on (my computer is on) and to fix that I have to reboot my computer.
important information about my system are listed below:
model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU B950 @ 2.10GHz

Hi @alimirzaeimajd, and welcome!

In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Please also note and heed: Forum Rules - Manjaro

Hope you manage!

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Portaest sed
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.

Instead of like this:

Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

Please edit your post accordingly.


Welcome to the forum! :vulcan_salute:

Please update your system first. Your system and your kernel are already hopelessly out of date. This below is what the lsb_release and uname commands should yield… :point_down:

[aragorn] >  lsb_release -a
LSB Version:    n/a
Distributor ID: ManjaroLinux
Description:    Manjaro Linux
Release:        23.1.3
Codename:       Vulcan

[aragorn] >  uname -r

Manjaro is a (curated) rolling-release distribution and must be kept up to date — we cannot offer any support for systems which have not been updated in a long time, or which have only partly been updated.

Please also take the time to read the following short essay… :point_down:

If for whatever reason you do not or cannot keep your system up to date — and maintained, because you probably also have lots of .pacnew files to tend to — then you will be better off switching to a point-release distribution such as Debian, Mint, Ubuntu, Mageia, AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, et al.

Please do not include screenshots of text !

Instead include the text by copy and paste !

Pictures are

  • not searchable in the forum and are
  • heavyweight on the server and
  • we can’t respond to a part of a picture by marking it



hi, thank you for your answer.
for your reply I should say I’m not an absolute beginner in linux, not professional but not beginner. of course I’m absolute beginner in manjaro forums. (this is my first post)

and yes I have to update my system.

Before anything else.

It is important that you do so. This alone already could solve your problem. I’m not saying that it will, but it might, for instance if you are using a proprietary graphics driver.

It may also be worth trying a later kernel version — 6.7 is also an LTS kernel — but of course, you should update your system first. :point_down:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syu
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux67

Then, upon rebooting, select the 6.7 kernel from the “Advanced options for Manjaro Linux” menu in GRUB. Leave the 6.1 kernel installed — it will be updated to the latest patch level by the pacman command above anyway.

thank you very much for your strong answer.
trying to be better…

That is new info … last time I checked it is 6.6.

6.7 is the latest ‘stable’ kernel.


My mistake. :facepalm:

Still, OP can choose to try 6.7 if it might solve the suspend problem. :man_shrugging:

Have you checked for BIOS updates?

You have an msdos parted disk but booted in UEFI mode? Never seen before. Or do you still boot in BIOS mode and have - without any meaning - just mounted /dev/sda1 as /boot/efi? Usually, msdos coresponds to BIOS boot or you have a GPT parted disk which could be used with UEFI boot mode or kind of “mis-used” in BIOS boot mode…
