• Suspend problem/Gnome DE


    Hi there! I have just come across a problem with the suspend mode. I use Antergos in gnome shell. As it comes out of the box after installation, there is no suspend button on the panel. I installed it using the Gnome addons tool and went on to try it. Well…all I got was a frozen,dead black, screen with no way to use the keyboard to, at least, get to the terminal. So I had to hard shutdown my pc.
    Shall I assume it is a known bug and that is why this button was originally missing after install? Is there a solution to fix it?
    Thank you in advance!

  • Hi,

    The missing button is a known issue. I thought it was still available from the power off menu but I could be wrong (its been a while since I used GNOME Shell). The following commands will suspend and hibernate the system. You can create keyboard shortcuts for them to make it easier
    sudo systemctl hibernate[/code:3sxumeen]

    Cheers!

  • Thank you Dastin. Before I give the commands you said, should I unistall the suspend button I have now installed via the gnome addon?
    Do you happen to know if after giving the commands my problem will be solved, or there really is a bug?

  • No you don’t need to uninstall anything. If you found an extension that allows you to properly suspend then just use that.

  • Unfortunately Dastin, nothing happened. First, I tried the suspend button on the start-up page. My pc suspended, heard it woke up…BUT with only a black screen with nothing working. Again, I couldnt use the terminal, so I hard shutdowned it using the power on/off button. Then, I rebooted and uninstalled the gnome extention suspend button which was my original reason for posting here (gave me exactly the same problem). I gave the command you suggested

    sudo systemctl suspend
    

    My pc went to suspend mode and woke up with the same dead black screen…
    Is it a bug or something?
    *I have installed xscreensaver but run it manually just for my screen to go black (with no other settings) just in case this could be of any dependency matter…
