I've done a fresh install on my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga S1 with Ubuntu 17.10. The machine won't go sleep. Actually, it seems it does try to put the system into the sleep mode then instantly wakes up showing the login screen. Both menu option (Pause) and closing lid cause the same, invalid behaviour. I've already configured via Gnome Tweak to fall asleep on lid close but it does not change behaviour.

Looking forward to any help. Is there any method to investigate, what causes immediate wake-up?




I had the same problem with my Lenovo Yoga Thinkpad. I used your solution and simply created script in init.d:

# Disable XHC wake
  case "$1" in
  start)    sudo sh -c "echo XHC > /proc/acpi/wakeup"
  stop) sudo sh -c "echo XHC > /proc/acpi/wakeup"
exit 0

Then link to rc5.d. Maybe not the smartest solution, but worked for me.


I would be curious to see what you get while running "tail -f /var/log/syslog" being run while you suspend the system.

To help with comparison, I closed the lid for about thirty seconds and then opened it back up in order to produce said log. I have copied it to PasteBin.

I'm curious to see what your log says during those points of trying to sleep.

    The syslog is here. I just found a temporary solution - the reason is an XHC (XHCI) controller waking up my notebook even if there are no devices attached to it (at least external ones). Issuing: sudo sh -c "echo XHC > /proc/acpi/wakeup" helps but I need to it every restart. – Peter Nov 28 '17 at 7:09
