My Ubuntu 20.04 crashes after I suspend it, but it doesn't happen every time. Sometimes I can keep the laptop on for 7 days suspending and waking it up many times, but sooner or later it'll crash on suspend. It's not a new issue, as it happened before I upgraded to 20.04 from 18.04.

I'm aware of the log files, but I don't know how to read them. I followed some instructions in this question but it never got a full solution. As it happens during suspend time, I am also not sure it would log an error.

I don't think it's a battery issue because when I turn it on again it is always at least half full. I suspect it could be due to the old HDD, but I ran smartmontools short and extended tests and it passed.

Some directions on what log files and what should I look up on them would be greatly appreciated.

Did you submit it to the software team? That is probably the only thing you can do. You could post your log here, but I don't think anyone will know how to read it either. I hope you fix your problem.
