Thinkpad T495s black screen after standby

I'm pretty new to the archlinux/manjaro world and just installed it some days ago on my Thinkpad 495s. Everything works fine, but after suspending my device I just get a black screen (display is on but not showing anything) and have to hard reset the system.

try using kernel 4.19 or even 5.5 if you're feeling adventurous and see if the problem persists.

Failing that, try disabling opengl compositing and using xrender instead.

Suspend issues have been reported on these fancy new ryzen apu's while the kernel catches up

edit: This could be worth a look too

@SebRut there are other ryzen 3000 users with the same issue. if you disable compositing before suspend it should wake fine. i think someone made a systemd service to handle this, not sure how it worked out though so just search the forum. or you can just use the keybind to disable/enable it manually. ctrl+F12 or something like that (it's been a while since using kde)

Switching to xrender seems to help, thanks :slight_smile:

I tried disabling compositing with alt+shift+f12 (taskbar turns black) but that didn't work.
