I have a nearly fresh install of Kubuntu 19.10 and encrypted my home folder using ecryptfs-migrate-home using the typical method.

This had led to an issue where, when I suspend my computer by closing the laptop lid, the computer suspends initially, then wakes back up at the log in screen and won't suspend without me hitting sleep in the log in screen.

Power Settings

What should I do to resolve this issue? I would usually use ubuntu-bug but I don't know what package to file a bug against.

EDIT 0: The swapfile doesn't exist (I think) because I'm using BTRFS as a filesystem. This is the swapfile entry in fstab:

#/swapfile             none            swap    sw              0       0

    I'm using BTRFS which doesn't use the swapfile. It is commented out in fstab. Commented Dec 30, 2019 at 18:07

    @K7AAY Wow! Thank you so much! That was unexpected. Commented Dec 31, 2019 at 16:37

    More reliable would be the output of cat /proc/swaps. Is a instantaneous wakeups from suspend? Did you check journalctl -x -p warning? Tried using just systemd suspend? Commented Jan 4, 2020 at 17:45

    @K7AAY Are you sure? The typical bounty button isn't at the bottom of the screen and a quick research hasn't been helpful with regards to adding to already exiting bounties. Also, I none of the links in the bounty box itself allow me to add to the bounty. Commented Jan 5, 2020 at 20:18

    @K7AAY I explored more than I would like and asked on more forums than I care to admit, however after a week I just gave up and installed manjaro and opted for the full disk encryption. I haven't had any issues since :) Thanks for the valiant effort! Commented Jan 9, 2020 at 5:50
