Monitors keep black after suspend/sleep


Fedora 40, after my system goes into suspend mode (whether triggered manually or automatically), it cannot be woken up anymore. Both monitors stay black and in standby mode. Other USB devices (e.g., the keyboard backlight) turn on, but SSH connections to the system also do not work. Here is my output from inxi -Fzxx:

  1. sshd is disabled by default with fedora. You can enable it and start it immediately with sudo systemctl enable --now sshd.service or enable it for next boot with sudo systemctl enable sshd.service
    You would also need to enable connections through the firewall by installing the firewall-config package then using the firewall-config command to enable that ssh service to connect.

  2. I suspect the black screen is because you have an nvidia gpu and are using the nouveau driver. This probably would be fixed if you were to install the nvidia drivers from rpmfusion.

I have almost the same system (ASRock B550M Pro4, Ryzen 7 5700X, Geforce RTX 3050, F40 with kernel 6.8.11) and I have been using the nvidia drivers for years and never have a problem with waking up.

I do one thing differently though. I do not suspend/sleep, but merely blank & lock the screen since my desktop acts as a media server for my household.

sshd is enabled and connections are working when the system is in a normal state^^
