Suspend and hibernate: computer wakes up without reason

Hi community,
I am trying to fix suspend and hibernation issues on my pc, an Intel NUC6i5 running Manjaro i3, up-to-date (hardware details below).
The strange behaviour is that when I suspend or hibernate my system, both work. However, the system just wakes up by itself after few seconds or few minutes.
I explored the forum and search on internet but did not find any fix or clear duplicate of what I am having here. Likely hardware related as I do not have this problem with other machine. I tried many BIOS options but without success so far. I also tried with 4.19 kernel but it didn't help.
Swap is activated with a huge size.

swapon --show
NAME           TYPE       SIZE USED PRIO
/dev/nvme0n1p3 partition 31.3G   0B   -2

Here are the outputs of blkid -o list and cat /etc/fstab as it was asked in a somehow related post by @tbg .

Any guidance much appreciated!

In sleep mode: there might be an application that is preventing the computer from going to sleep (BitTorrent clients are the most likely culprit) so:

  • Close applications one by one and see which one is preventing sleep mode.

In Hibernation mode: it is possible to turn on a shut down computer through Wake-on-LAN (WoL) packets. (IOT devices are the most likely culprit)

  • Shut down your IOT devices before hibernating and start them one by one and see which one wakes up your computer. (Don't forget to check your router as that can do this too)

For both:

I'd try the latest and greatest stable kernel first: 5.6 instead of 4.19 LTS...


Hi Fabby,
Thanks for the tips. Wake-on-LAN does not seem to be the issue, as it happens even when I disconnect the cable and turn the Wifi off, and it is disable in the BIOS. Not really sure what are the 'IOT' things that can be running here by the way.
As I am running kernel 5.4, will check the 5.6 but have few hopes that it will fix the thing.
Last night the suspend was fine. I suspend the machine after a cold boot without any startup application added. But today, the problem is back, even if very few things are running in my session. Am trying to identify the application that might suspend the sleep mode. Not that obvious so far...

Disconnecting my protonmail account from thunderbird solve the issue. Nothing directly related to Manjaro.
Autocorrect, blueman is causing the issue.
