#StackBounty: #suspend #laptop #lid Laptop automatically suspending after lid closed and reopened

My current kernel version

Linux xorist-Blade-Stealth 4.18.0-041800-generic #201808122131 SMP Sun Aug 12 21:33:20 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The issue I’m having

First I feel it’s important to note that I am working with a freshly installed version of Ubuntu, the only thing I’ve done to it was update the kernel. This update to the kernel could NOT be directly related to the issue I’m having because it existed prior to the update.

Whenever I boot up my laptop it will work perfectly fine until I close the lid, wait for it to suspend, reopen it and let it wake back up. After I have done this process and it’s in the normal awakened state, about 15-30 seconds will pass before it automatically suspends it’s self. If I press the power button to wake it back up and log in again, it will continue to automatically suspend it’s self after about the same period of 15-30 seconds. This problem persists until I completely reboot my laptop.

I’ve attempted all of the answers under this post, but none helped.

Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this issue?

#StackBounty: #suspend #power-management How do I tell what's preventing sleep on Ubuntu? My box won't sleep automatically!

Bounty: 100

Manually sleeping my Ubuntu desktop from a menu works fine.
I’ve set preferences to “Suspend when inactive” for “5 Minutes”.
Yet the computer often does not sleep.

On Windows, I use powercfg -requests to see what the hold-up is.
On a Mac, I can use pmset -g assertions to see what’s preventing sleep
(Source).

I think maybe Chrome is preventing sleep, but I can’t be sure.

Is there a Linux equivalent way to find out?
Can powertop be used this way?

#StackBounty: #suspend #power-management How do I tell what's preventing sleep on Ubuntu? My box won't sleep automatically!

Bounty: 100

Manually sleeping my Ubuntu desktop from a menu works fine.
I’ve set preferences to “Suspend when inactive” for “5 Minutes”.
Yet the computer often does not sleep.

On Windows, I use powercfg -requests to see what the hold-up is.
On a Mac, I can use pmset -g assertions to see what’s preventing sleep
(Source).

I think maybe Chrome is preventing sleep, but I can’t be sure.

Is there a Linux equivalent way to find out?
Can powertop be used this way?
