Sometimes the computer won't auto-suspend when the lid has been closed. When this happens re-closing the lid won't make it suspend until next reboot. After the reboot the auto-suspend works again. After a while it stops working again, I haven't been able to determine what changes the state from suspendable to unsuspendable.

In the unsuspendable state "sudo pm-suspend" and "sudo systemctl suspend" don't make it stay suspended.

I'm running a Lenovo X220 with Arch 64 bit.

What should I do/try to make it work as it is supposed to?

EDIT:added journalctl output:

journalctl -xn

Any log that may be useful? sudo journalctl may give you some. –  Felix Yan Dec 30 '13 at 8:38
