I'm running Arch Linux 4.2.5-1 with xfce4 on an Asus x205ta and for some reason,
sudo systemctl suspend seems to just freeze my system. I know it is suspending because when I check
journalctl it shows it with:
Nov 25 13:26:32 arch systemd-sleep: Suspending system...
However, my laptop simply won't resume and I don't know why. I can mash the power button and any key on my laptop all day long but it refuses to resume. I have to hold down the power button to "turn it off" because it won't come out of the suspended state.
One thing to note is if I run
sudo systemctl suspend within the tty terminal (outside of x), the screen simply freezes in place and the power LED remains on. I can't type anything, the cursor doesn't blink, and I have to reboot for anything to work again. However, if I run it within xfce4, the screen turns off as if it is actually going to sleep and the power LED also turns off.
When I run
pm-suspend, nothing seems to happen. When I check
journalctl, it says:
Nov 25 13:31:52 arch sudo: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by hayden(uid=0)
Nov 25 13:31:52 arch sudo: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root
