I can confirm two similar cases in recent weeks, though there's been quite some
time between them, weeks? and I typically use suspend multiple times a day,
except sometimes weekends.
There are other cases, where sys-net stops responding, or the internet isn't
working when it's brought back from suspend, though these cases are just as
rare as the above no suspend issue (I'm using the wi-fi module blacklisting in
To me it seems like a semi-rare bug that is triggered by something yet unknown,
though maybe it's known on github tracking issues?
Either way, I think this might be related to the sys-net, but I can't really be
sure here. Perhaps you can write a script that disables the networking,
shutsdown sys-net, and then starts sys-net again and re-connects networking as
it wakes up.
This isn't a pretty solution, but it might work? Does your issue happen
frequent enough so that you can test if sys-net is shutdown, that suspend then
works properly? Would be ideal to know if that is indeed it before spending
some time on such a script.
