I believe I have fixed this issue.
- Firstly, I don’t think uninstalling lightdm was the proper fix, but I did it anyways to try. So I uninstalled lightdm and all it’s dependencies.
- The detail was actually found in this repo. Under the Suspend Loop section, I followed the steps and edited grub.conf. I wasn’t able to restart grub with
sudo update-grubso I needed to use
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
- After rebooting, I have been able to close the lid to my laptop multiple times and have had no issue with suspend loops.
Thank you to those that helped!
@joekamprad Alright I’ve tried a few things to narrow down the issue.
First, here’s the output
> ls .config/autostart/ cnchi.desktop first-boot-hotfix.desktop tilda.desktop
Second, I’ve swapped over to GDM for a few days and here are my findings.
- GDM bugs out way more than lightdm does (locks sooner and more aggressively) when closing the lid.
- GDM does NOT bug out when left to suspend on it’s own (leaving it alone until it locks, but not closing the lid).
- Still requires reboot to fix behaviour.
Running Antergos on Razer Blade Stealth.
- On boot, I can log in and work just fine.
- If I close my lid, the login screen comes up.
- After logging in, about 20 seconds later the screen will dim and lock
- Only fixable on reboot.
It can be reproduced infinitely. I have tried swapping lightdm with gdm, to no avail. My guess is that the timer for the lockscreen is somehow being shortened, but I’m not sure.
