Sometimes PC doesn't wake up from sleep


I’m running Manjaro with KDE. I have my computer set to go to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity.

However, randomly, say 1 out of 30 times when I go to wake up my computer, the PC’s power led comes on…and that’s it.

The monitor, keyboard, none of the peripherals wake up. My only solution is to kill power from the wall and then restart.

I don’t even know how to diagnose this issue because after restarting, I lose all my logs.

Does anyone know why this might be happening and how to fix it?

Thank you

Seems there is a handy utility you can use to provide useful info called " Manjaro Log Helper (automated log generator GUI)"

  1. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)

  2. Try setting it to hibernate and then you’ll still have some logs to share…
