Suspend laptop on 4.19.36-1-MANJARO kernel


I would like to know if someone has or had the same issue as me: I can't suspend my laptop when I close it: I selected on Power Manager suspend it when the lid is closed. My current kernel is 4.19.36-1-MANJARO

hi, that's an acpi related issue with your particular laptop, please do this


Sorry for the very late answer, but I got banned because I removed my laptop settings and I was waiting to be able to post... So I created a new account. This is the url to my post: Dump your inxi -Fxzc0 here and bookmark it

what I need to do now to know why my laptop doesn't suspend? Thanks!

I'm not that familiar with XFCE power control. I use KDE personally so maybe another user is best placed to advise you. I doubt you got banned for removing laptop information, that seems highly unlikely. You are more likely to get into hot water over having a second account. Please consult with forum staff over merging the two if possible.

Things to try, consult linesma's topic about ACPI kernel options

also kernel 5.0 or 5.1

I was testing my computer and I saw I can suspend it clicking the option "suspend", and If I close the lid and open it, it recovers the normal state. The problem still remains when I close the lid without clicking the "suspend" option because It doesn't change the state. I followed this post and no luck Unable to suspend when closing lid on Dell Inspiron 1545


First thing to do is to test different kernels.

Next thing to do is remove the r8168 Realtek LAN driver. It has been causing suspend problems lately.
