Desktop does not wake after sleep


I need help with my Fedora 39 machine. After reinstalling Fedora (I had Fedora 37 before), I’m having trouble waking it up after it goes into suspend mode.

Problem: When I press a key on the keyboard to wake it up, the computer starts up (fans spin), but the displays remain black. I’ve tried entering ttys, but that didn’t work either. I end up having to force shutdown my PC.

I’m using the NVIDIA driver from RPM Fusion.

Thank you in advance.

I did some more research and found this:

they both unfortunately do not lead to a solution.
But i am not the only one with the issues.

I have verified the problem does not occur when using the nouveau drivers.
What to do in a situation like this?

I comment once again to raise awareness. I need some help please.

Thank you for your useless contribution.

An kernel update in the meantime fixed the issue.

Thanks for the info @saaabo. I was facing this problem today and your answer saved me time from wandering around for some technical solution.

I was having issue within v6.7.3 of the Kernel. After upgrading to v6.7.4, the system started to wake up after a Suspend.

I am still facing this another problem that the system does wake up with external keyboard or mouse. I have to press the key on the laptop’s keyboard.

Just letting you know, I am not looking for any solution here.
