I am experiencing long pauses when trying to wake my laptop after suspend. It often takes > 30 sec of tapping on the keyboard and swiping on the trackpad to get the display to turn on. At that point my password text box is filled with characters. I also experience a large delay when i select Settings > Displays, the display number appears in the corner of the screen immediately but the dialog box takes > 30 sec to change to the Displays panel.

After mucking around I found that by stopping the iio-sensor-proxy service (systemctl stop iio-sensor-proxy.service) these pauses go away and everything seems to work fine. I cannot disable the iio-sensor-proxy from starting at boot with (systemctl disable iio-sensor-proxy.service) it starts anyway. I cannot remove it from my system because it is a dependency for many packages.

  • Is there a way to troubleshoot what seems like a timeout issue with iio-sensor-proxy?
  • Is there a way I can just get rid of iio-sensor-proxy?

The command monitor-sensor gives the following output: $ monitor-sensor

Waiting for iio-sensor-proxy to appear +++ iio-sensor-proxy appeared ** ERROR:monitor-sensor.c:165:appeared_cb: assertion failed (error == NULL): Timeout was reached (g-io-error-quark, 24) Aborted (core dumped)
