#StackBounty: #suspend #21.04 #acpi #msi Can't suspend: system resumes for unknown reason after ~40 minutes of sleep

Bounty: 100

I’ve bought new MSI Summit B15 which was supplied without OS and happily installed on it fresh Ubuntu 21.04. So far everything works pretty well (except couple of troubles with touchpad & no drivers for FP scanner but that’s a different story) except one pretty annoying issue: when I try to suspend the machine it suddenly wakes up in about ~40-60 minutes and start running fans full-speed. Not only it sometimes wakes up me if I happened to sleep nearby, it drains the battery over night, making suspend essentially useless.

I’ve tried to disable everything (see here how) but power button in /proc/acpi/wakeup, so it looks like this currently:

➜  ~ cat /proc/acpi/wakeup | grep enabled
PWRB      S4    *enabled   platform:PNP0C0C:00

It doesn’t help.

Here is part of syslog (here I’ve put system to suspend at 7:48 and it started fanning at 8:35 but I logged in later, only at 10:56):

(Here is the full log, in case I’ve removed something relevant)

As you can see, there’s no record at the moment the machine is actually woke up. So my next assumption is that something outside the OS causes wake-up. But system looks not suspended: e.g. monitor is lite up and login screen is shown when immediately when I open the lid, it usually takes some time to start login screen, when I open lid on sleeping system.

UPD1: Thanks to @David comment, although WOL itself is not relevant to my system (MSI Summit doesn’t even have an Ethernet card), I’ve figured out, that I have to search for some configuration in BIOS setup. And I found there "Wake on Thunderbolt™ device" entry which was enabled. I have 0 Thunderbolt™ devices but disabled the entry, just in case. This didn’t help though.

UPD2: It seams that /proc/acpi/wakeup just doesn’t work: as I mentioned earlier, I’ve disabled everything but power button in it, however, when I open the lid, computer still wakes up.
