The suspend can be achieved with the power button (default configuration on
GNOME 3) or with the
Fn+F1 shortcut. After a fresh installation of Arch
Linux, it worked but since few days, it does not resume well.
The symptoms: the computer (ASUS N750JV) is suspend and when resume, freeze with a screen showing some information about resume. Nothing to do except holding the power button for a hard shutdown.
Manage the problem
It seems that there is some hardware problems on resume. The best way to manage
that is to blacklist these hardware. When looking at the freezing screen, the
first problem is given by the the
nouveau driver. In order to blacklist the
nouveau driver, we will add the following line into the
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file. You can use any file into this
directory; as long as it its name ends with
.conf, it will be parsed.
After after a reboot, you should now be able to suspend your computer and resume it without a freeze!
