Description Johannes Buchner 2015-09-04 17:16:19 UTC
Suspend freezes the system.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I use the hibernate-ram command of sys-power/hibernate-script-2.0-r6 to start suspending. That used to work, but since a month or so the effect is just a black screen as when preparing hibernation. 
Actual Results:  
* The power light stays on, so it does not actually enter hibernation. 
* The power button is useless and does not wake up the system
* I can not switch to a VT, or reboot with key combinations ... I can only kill the system with pressing the power button.
* I use up-to-date GNOME + systemd.
* When starting into a emergency root shell, hibernate-ram works fine.
* This occurs in GNOME, and using the menu to suspend has the same effect. 

Expected Results:  
Normal suspend with power light off. Power button should bring back the system

Perhaps it has something to do with driver kernel modules or NetworkManager. I use rtl8723be from I am usually connected to a wifi.

Bug 426510 may be related, but not sure exactly.

50 lines before the suspend. I have to do a hard reboot because the system freezes.

Comment 3 Johannes Buchner 2015-09-04 17:29:55 UTC
Will try with SUSPEND_MODULES="rtl8723be ohci_hcd ehci_hcd"
in /etc/pm/config.d/gentoo
Comment 4 Johannes Buchner 2015-09-04 17:47:00 UTC
That did not solve the problem. 
* when using GNOME suspend on the login screen, no user logged in, connected to Wifi.
* when disconnecting wifi first (stopping NetworkManager, systemctl stop NetworkManager, unloading wifi modules (rtl8723be btcoexist rtl_pci rtlwifi) and then when running pm-suspend.
Comment 5 Alex Xu (Hello71) 2015-09-20 16:07:04 UTC
please try "systemctl suspend". also, paste the contents of /proc/fb.
Comment 6 Johannes Buchner 2015-09-26 21:04:11 UTC
# cat /proc/fb
0 radeondrmfb
1 radeondrmfb

will try systemctl suspend in a minute
Comment 7 Johannes Buchner 2015-09-26 21:13:10 UTC
Same result. 
The last log entry is "systemd-sleep[28926]: Suspending system..."
Comment 8 Alice Ferrazzi Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2017-02-14 18:33:47 UTC
4.0 is no more in the gentoo-sources packages.

could you test with a more recent kernel ?
Comment 9 Johannes Buchner 2017-02-15 14:10:57 UTC

Still have the issue with 4.4.39. It might have to do with a non-standard mount order which systemd does not like and can not handle automatically at boot.
Comment 10 Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2018-06-19 18:20:41 UTC
Is this issue still outstanding?
Comment 11 Johannes Buchner 2018-06-19 18:28:59 UTC
Yes. The underlying problem is systemd, but the failure is then also not handled and the system becomes unusable.
Comment 12 Mike Pagano gentoo-dev 2018-06-19 22:51:50 UTC
Reassigning to systemd folks.  Can you guys help here?
Comment 13 Johannes Buchner 2018-06-19 23:03:08 UTC
My understanding of what is happening:
1) systemd doesn't have a feature I need. It goes into a recovery shell, I mount the fs, exit and the system finishes booting normally. 
  [systemd used to mark the system as broken, nowadays it restarts itself and seems happy]
2) when I try to hibernate-ram or hibernate, systemd has trouble unmounting (I think, not sure) and stops somehow. It doesn't abort hibernating, or it does but the display never comes back (blindly switching and entering commands in TTY don't do anything, so I think the system halted somehow).
