    Phoronix: Ubuntu 18.04's Automatic Suspend Shows Linux Suspend Can Still Be An Issue In 2018

    One of the subtle changes that seemed to have been made during the Ubuntu 18.04 development cycle is automatic suspend now being enabled by default on desktop systems...

    It will always be an issue as long as Nvidia wants open source developers to do as they demand and not like the sane rest of the world:

      It doesn't have anything to do with nVidia. It has to do with Gnome crap handling of anything related to displays, lock screens, log outs or screensavers.

      I deactivated Automatic suspend first thing after installing my system just as shown in the article. Didn't work. Then I uninstalled gnome-screensaver and even deactivated anything related to lock screens, screensavers and automatic suspend in dconf. Still, the screen was going blank or to screensaver when idle or locking when switching input channel on the AV receiver. Problem is, with current amdgpu any of these would end up in X hanging or the system to crash when resuming.

      I resolved to install Keep awake! extension as caffeine is no longer working. It still is quite buggy but it at least it mostly works.

      There was no such issue in Unity.

            it should be an ACPI issue though.

              WTF, are Ubuntu's developers stupider than I thought?
              Can't they just stop with these "We are smarter than the user and we're turning on things by default for him/her" ?
              I bet that after a year or so a lot of users with normal hard disks (not SSDs) will complain that their hard drives died of all these on/off power cycles.
              Now I can't ever recommend Linux Mint, which is based on Ubuntu, to my friends because of this crap.
              And I thought that the worst thing in Ubuntu 18.04 is the introduction of spyware (data collection), and now I hear about this...
              I can't even decide which is worst.

                Well, sad to hear. When I received my RX 560 in January, I tested all of the DPMS and suspend stuff and everything was working nicely with Plasma Xorg + Compton on Arch.

                  I don't about you guys, but I think it is stupid do this on desktop machines and laptops with the charger plugged.
