From deleted answer below (poster didn't have enough reputation points to post a comment), a bug report was filed in Kernel.org Bugzilla:

Another bug report was filed in Launchpad:


Oct 21/2018 Update

The problem is still here and no matter how much research I've done (mostly repeating previous research) a solution is no closer. Another user reported the same problem today: Sleep mode drains battery very fast

In a nutshell you can see my journalctl -xe log:

Feb 25/2018 Update

When this question was originally posted I had a laptop that was upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04. Since then I have a new laptop with a 16.04 fresh install. The issue still remains though:

Notice how the system is suspended Feb 24 at 11:30pm then resumed on Feb 25 at 7:40 am. Upon resuming the system immediately goes to "sleep" and then "wakes up".

Background

NOTE: In Ubuntu 16.04 power settings lid close is set to "Suspend" for both battery and Plugged In.

Within /etc/systemd/logind.conf the defaults of "ignore" were changed to HandleLidSwitch=suspend and HandleLidSwitchDocked=suspend. The reason being an HDMI external TV is connected and if any of these options (or Ubuntu power settings) are set to "ignore" or "do nothing" the system keeps running when lid closed but TV goes blank. Under Ubuntu 14.04 (with no systemd) suspending when lid closed worked as expected.

There has been lots of historical tinkering of acpi-events, pm-utils, gnome-??? and possibly dbus-???. Also experimenting with various suspend methods of freeze and memory.

I honestly can't recall all the different things tried but it seems like I've searched for everything under the sun.

Relevant contents of /var/log/syslog

Looking at /var/log/syslog at 5:05am the system was suspended (by systemd?). At 4:46pm (16:46) systemd resumed but then kernel put laptop to sleep and immediate wakeup. There are lots of weird messages such as "parent CPU should not be sleeping".

My concern is other things are starting to break 6 months after this question was originally posted in October 2016. For example, ethernet isn't reconnecting upon waking from suspend and wifi takes over. I've downgraded r8169 driver to r8168 but that hasn't helped things. I've setup network restart but that hasn't helped things, indeed sometimes DNS gets lost.

Here's relevant /var/log/syslog:

Is this normal? (Note lid-close does same thing except systemd suspends faster and does fewer tasks).

  • I'm not positive it's related but have you seen the section of the man page indicated by man systemd | grep "knows various" ? It seems odd that sleep and suspend appear to be stepping on each other. Just a thought. – Elder Geek Apr 17 '17 at 17:36
  • I'm beginning to think this is a possible kernel bug. Is this useful? – Elder Geek Apr 17 '17 at 17:49
  • @ElderGeek There's a lot to read there :(. I think it's more like systemd freezes system on lid close then when lid opens systemd thaws and upon thaw kernel is activated from previous lid close, goes to sleep and immediately wakes up because lid is open... or something like that. It's complicated. I don't want bounty to be wasted so please post anything even if it's "read this" and I'll accept it before expiry. You of all hard working people deserve it :) – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 17 '17 at 17:51
  • Ok, I gave it my best. I hope it helps. :-) – Elder Geek Apr 17 '17 at 20:12
  • Does your BIOS have sleep state options? If so, does adjusting the choices there have any impact? – Elder Geek Apr 26 '17 at 15:45

After reviewing all the information I can find, I've come to the conclusion that you are affected by this kernel bug. which has affected numerous systems including Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. This bug which will be marked for expiration in 47 days if no further activity occurs, is extremely hot, scoring 412 on the bug heat score and is reported as affecting 86 people at this moment. I recommend that you subscribe to it and provide any kernel related info that you can to help clarify the issue so that it remains open and the devs can squash it.

A likely workaround is upgrading/reverting to kernel 4.4.8 as noted here and confirmed here and here.

Work has been requested to reverse bisect the kernel but the bug is currently expired so it looks like the devs didn't get all the help they needed in determining the root cause of this behavior. Near as I can tell from perusing the bug report this problem appeared in kernel 4.4.0, was resolved in 4.4.8 and then reappeared sometime around 4.5.2 but I won't claim to be certain.

Another possible kernel upgrade workaround was reported here although I haven't found confirmation on that one.

If your using a kernel from the repository, it could be helpful if you were to launch ubuntu-bug linux from the terminal to create a new bug report providing specific information regarding your kernel/issue.

You might wish to rule out out-of-order-execution as a culprit as well. You should be able to accomplish this by disabling all but CPU0 like:

for x in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/online; do
  echo 0 >"$x"
done

You might also find this information useful in tracking down the root cause of this issue.

  • Accepted for bounty :) Please note I was already using 4.9.21 but tried Kernel 4.10.10 just in case. Same results, Kernel partiality suspends and powers down system but upon resume completes suspend with immediate wake (no visible problems other than in log). – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 18 '17 at 9:53
  • I think there was a regression. edited answer. Could you test with 4.4.8? – Elder Geek Apr 18 '17 at 13:31
  • Exact same scenario with 4.4.8 - Systemd suspends system and upon resume Kernel immediately sleeps and wakes up. No one would know this is happening unless they examine the logs I posted above. Thanks for trying :) – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 18 '17 at 22:52
  • Interesting. It would seem that something in the laundry list of things you've tried has possibly done more harm than good. Can you duplicate this behavior from live media? Do you have a backup from before this problem surfaced? – Elder Geek Apr 19 '17 at 12:44
  • Yeah. I'm tempted to do a clean install of 17.04 to my unused SDA 240GB SSD. My current 16.04 was upgraded from 14.04 on SDC and I had 3 weeks of problems after upgrading. I'm working on a backup script now but have no backups from Aug 2016 when I upgraded to 16.04. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Apr 19 '17 at 14:52

This is the specific problem that appears in dmesg:

PM: Preparing system for sleep (mem)
[...]
PM: Suspending system (mem)

Initially try to do:

sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub

and set the line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_backlight=vendor"

Other parameters that previously existed in this line can leave unchanged, i.e., only adding this sometimes indicated.

To make changes effective, run:

sudo update-grub

In addition there is the report of a problem with apt-daily.service, which is the update service runs at boot, which makes it all running indefinitely, unable to finish.

Try disable the service:

sudo apt-systemctl disable daily.service # disable run when system boot

Another workaround that worked reasonably to me:

sudo -H gedit /etc/systemd/system.conf

Change the following lines uncommenting and setting to a value that still permits the loading system:

# DefaultTimeoutStartSec = 90s
DefaultTimeoutStartSec = 10s
# DefaultTimeoutStopSec = 90s
DefaultTimeoutStopSec = 10s

Note the dmesg if the adjustment does not generate load failure and, if appropriate, adjust the value.

  • I don't think you need spaces between subdirectories etc/default/grub. Thanks for being first answer in a fortnight though :) – WinEunuuchs2Unix Oct 21 '16 at 14:46
  • All right, do not even need the space, formatting error, thanks for the correction. I edited it lacked say you need to update the grub. – Druida Obelix Oct 21 '16 at 16:45
  • Thanks for your update. I took the liberty of highlighting some of your lines pressing the {} button and converting it to source code blocks. This makes it a non-proportional font like the terminal has and makes the "code" scrollable up and down and left to right. It's a convention used here in AskUbuntu. I'll look at the apt-daily.service thanks for that tip. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Oct 21 '16 at 22:58

    Appears to me these "fixes" are a laundry list of possible fixes, not things that are tailored to the question that OP asked. What in that kernel log made you suspect that the backlight or daily.service were involved? I'm willing to try anything, of course, but it seems rather cookbookish. – pauljohn32 Dec 4 '16 at 3:03
  • 1
    After making this change in system.conf, then my networking does not restore after suspend. – pauljohn32 Dec 7 '16 at 2:25
