My laptop sometimes freeze on boot, not reaching the login screen. The screen freezes on the Ubuntu logo. I googled a lot, most posts relates to a Nvidia driver issue, but my laptop does not have a Nvidia card. I seem to notice that the problem relates to prior using the laptop on battery, or maybe closing the lid.
Yesterday I was using my recently fresh installed Ubunto 20.04 on battery. I remember - hope I am not wrong - that after usage I shutdown (not suspend) the machine and THEN closed the lid (again I hope my memory is correct here).
This morning when I tried to boot the machine I was shown a frozen screen. Then I used the "Magic SysRq keys" - Alt+SysRq+"REISUB" to reboot the machine, and this time the system went up quickly. I then used journalctl to check the previous boot:
journalctl -b-1 -a --no-pager

I'm not familiar with booting and kernel, but it seems to me that the problem is with logind service failing to start.
