First of all, sorry for my "not-that-good" English. :) I'm not an experienced user, but I'll be my best to describe my problem.

Thesedays, I'm doing Fedora 23 post-install tasks. Yesterday night, I set some suspend related option.

Gnome Settings -> Power
  Suspend&Power Off
   automatic suspend: enabled (disabled by deafault)
    on battery power: after 30 minutes
    plug in: after 1 hour

And I went to sleep, leaving my laptop running.
When I woke up this morning, my laptop display was showing (a little graphically glitched) "wake-up screen" (you know, the screen that appears when it returns from blank display brightness power-saving mode). Without mouse cursor, nothing worked.
Is it a suspend-related issue? (But when I press "ALT + Gnome shell power button", it works correctly and I can return normally)
And there aren't setting options about lid switch in Gnome-settings. Is it normal?
  I recently installed dconf-editor and Gnome Tweaks.
   Gnome Tweaks> Power> When Laptop Lid is Closed> Don't suspend on lid close [on/off]
  It means that lid close suspend option is enabled by default.
  But when I close my laptop lid, nothing happens.
Then, how can I utilize suspend and hibernation function correctly?
  Regarding hibernation, I think I just found a solution in the internet. I'll try it.


  • not working: automatic suspend, lid close suspend
  • working: ALT + Gnome shell power button (that is, suspend)

I want to be my best to give you sufficient information about my problem.

OS: Fedora 23
AMD APU A8-7200P Radeon R5
Graphics: Gallium 0.4 on AMD KAVERI
Memory: 6.8GB (8GB, maybe some portion is dedicated to Kdump)
  When I installed fedora23, I used inst.kdump_addon=on boot option.
  I wonder if it can give more log or information.
Swap: 16GB (yes, it may be too much alloacation, but I want to use hibernation)
ASUS laptop X550ZA (UEFI, firmware version 204)

Because of short of points, I can't attatching dmesg log file (after two reboot.. If it's useless, I will try to reproduce my problem, and give you fresh dmesg log), and it's too long to directly paste in. But If it's required, please teach me what keyword I have to use to "grep" something useful in dmesg log. I will do that.

Note: some of the power options you may be looking for can be set in /etc/systemd/logind.conf
