I am using ubuntu 17.10 with gnome-shell 3.26. And many times, when I suspend my notebook by closing the cover and return it normally, I put my login and password and when I start using the applications it simply logoff. When I login again all applications are closed.

#UserTasksMax=33% 

Try changing the commented-out line #KillUserProcesses=no by removing the leading '#'

I think this should prevent your computer from closing your apps when it suspends.

You' ll need to sudo to edit it.
