My Debian 9 system wakes up in 2-5 seconds after it enters into the sleep mode (suspend to RAM) manually or automatically. The problem always occurs no matter how the sleep mode is invoked: by lid closing, by power button, or from terminal. What could be the problem?

Here is system info:

$ sudo dmidecode | grep -A3 '^System Information'
System Information
    Manufacturer: LENOVO
    Product Name: 20ET004LGE
    Version: ThinkPad E460
$ uname -a
Linux 4.9.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u5 (2017-09-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux

To check which devices could cause a problem, I checked /proc/acpi/wakeup and then disabled every device temporarily by issuing echo DeviceName > /proc/acpi/wakeup, but the problem is still persisting. Here it is before I changed:

$ cat /proc/acpi/wakeup

And lastly here is the relevant part from dmesg, after I put the machine into sleep and it wakes up (without any modification to /proc/acpi/wakeup):

  • check your power settings in the settings menu, if your power manager service is stopped then this could be the default behavior built in to the driver. – Joe Sep 23 '17 at 14:10
  • Try booting with the break kernel parameter, and when you're dropped at the (initramfs) prompt, do echo mem >/sys/power/state to suspend your machine. If that works right, try finding the point which breaks it: for example acpid interacting with systemd-logind (boot with systemd.unit=rescue.target), with your display manager (boot with systemd.unit=multi-user.target) or with your desktop power manager (close your desktop environment). – Ferenc Wágner Sep 25 '17 at 9:17

I don't know if you ever got this problem resolved, but I had the same thing happening on Debian buster/sid on a ThinkPad T460. The output of my dmesg wasn't identical to yours, but importantly, it had the same

ACPI: EC: event blocked

line. Per this thread on AskUbuntu, I disabled XHCI as a wakeup trigger in /proc/acpi/wakeup:

$ grep enabled /proc/acpi/wakeup | cut -f 1
LID
SLPB
XHCI
$ sudo su
# echo XHCI > /proc/acpi/wakeup

and that fixed it for me. Oddly, this was only supposed to matter if you had USB devices plugged into the machine, but I most certainly did not.


EDIT: Never mind, I forgot about the part where you tried disabling every line in /proc/acpi/wakeup.

  • Because I was wondering: no restart is required after applying this change. For me, XHC was causing the problem (ThinkPad T470s, Ubuntu 16.04, kernel 4.15). – MakisH Dec 31 '18 at 9:10

Problem solved. It was somehow the keyboard. One of my F keys was broken and I decided to test if this key was constantly sending input. Then I tested keyboard inputs in the terminal - no input was shown when I don't touch the keyboard. Although that was the case, when I replaced the keyboard with a new one, I could put the PC into sleep. It might be something related to Thinkpad BIOS I guess, because no matter what I tried in the OS, I could not see any keyboard input that might wake it up from sleep.
