Hibernate issue crashes SDDM back to logon

Hello. Thanks for Manjaro.!! I have a vexing issue that seems to happen on stable lts kernel and latest 4.17.2 kernel. This has happened in kde 5.13 and 5.13. I have a Dell xps 13 (9343) laptop and when I am done working I close the lid. Then when I open the lid it will often crash and go back to SDDM Logon. It is not a hard reboot. It is just crashing my session and sending me back to Logon. The problem there is I often have a couple VM's open and those crash hard. I think it is related to power devil but I am not sure. Has anyone else had this issue? Are there any known fixes?

Again thanks.

Please post the output of:

Perform these commands before you hibernate:

sudo systemctl stop NetworkManager

sudo modprobe –r iwlmvm

sudo modprobe -r iwldvm

sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi

Resume, from suspend. If your system is still responding, perform these commands:

sudo modprobe iwlwifi

sudo modprobe iwldvm

sudo modprobe iwlmvm

sudo systemctl start NetworkManager

If that procedure worked then you know your wifi is causing the problem.

Check logs and services

systemctl status upower
journalctl -g suspend
journalctl -g PowerDevil

Thanks...I think you hit the nail on the head. I watched it and brought the system up and the wireless icon was spinning and as soon as it got a connection it kicked me back to login. It does not happen all the time. About 30% of the time.

Are there any known fixes for this? It does not happen on other distros.


I wrote a very simplistic sytemd unit file for another user who was having issues related to his wifi upon suspend. It was a very amateurish attempt at a fix, but it did work.

It may help you, but your problem may be more complex. It's worth giving it a try.

Here's the links to info I and others posted (read entire threads):



Thanks very much ...I will give this a shot and post pack
