Description Marko Kettunen 2017-07-18 07:09:13 EDT
Description of problem:
Suspending the computer through the power button icon in the top bar of Gnome doesn't work. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easy to test.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click the power button icon in the Gnome top bar
2. Press Alt on the keyboard to enable suspend feature
3. Click the suspend button

Actual results:
The computer and monitor move into power saving mode for a few seconds before reactivating.

Expected results:
Computer and monitor should remain in power saving mode.

Additional info:
Suspending works as expected when activated through the automatic power saving feature. That is, Gnome is able to automatically move the computer into a power saving state after a time period specified in the system settings. Also, issuing the command 'systemctl suspend' from a terminal window or through the Alt+F2 dialog box succesfully moves the computer into a power saving state.
