Blank screen with mouse cursor after wake from sleep

Hi. I’m experiencing the same problem described here. Basically when the laptop wakes from sleep there’s a blank screen with the cursor, I can move it and can press Ctrl-Alt-F2 to go to TTY2 and reboot. However, the solution in that thread isn’t applicable to my situation as I don’t have an nvidia card. It started happening today after a general update with pacman -Syu. Last time I updated before was 30 Oct.

I don’t know how to make the code block contractible.

Does this happen if you use the lts kernel?

Reporting back that hibernating the system instead of sleeping works without problems.

I’m installing linux-lts to check whether that helps.

The problem doesn’t happen with the lts kernel.

Scratch that. The problem is still there, be it linux-lts or linux.

I have exactly the same problem. I’m also on AMD (Ryzen 9 5900HX).

I might try to switch to linux-lts but I’m not sure how to make sure the system uses the lts kernal…

For now I’ll try hibernating in stead of sleeping.

Hey @thatent, I’m now on the 6.0.9 kernel and haven’t been experiencing the issue recently. Hope that helps.

That one needs to go into my list of favorite quotes.

Although the thread’s headline already inspired me big time; like what I see when waking up…
