This is my first experience with Arch and all has been well expect for suspending to ram via gnome-power-manager. pm-suspend works perfectly fine and writes to /var/log/pm-suspend.log as expected, but when i suspend via gnome (or the sleep button on my keyboard), the PC goes to sleep just fine, but it is frozen when I attempt to resume (black screen, can't blindly switch to another vterm, keyboard doesn't seem to be working).
From reading the various wiki's, my understanding was that gnome-power-manager should be using pm-suspend behind the scenes by sending a message to upower over dbus. This doesn't seem to be the case as no records are written to /var/log/pm-suspend.log when i suspend through gnome.
I'm using the stock arch kernel w/ the proprietary amd drivers and KMS disabled (nomodeset). Again, everything works fine when pm-suspend is called in a vterm or through gnome console.
Any insight/help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
I think gnome uses logind now, doesn't it?
Anything suspend-related in journalctl?
Try if you can suspend with systemd. # systemctl suspend
systemctl suspend has the same behaviour, definately the cause. Looked in journalctl but there is nothing related to suspend in the that i can see:

The reboot in the middle of the 28th was because i could not successfully return from suspend and had to reset. Know where to go from here?
Can't seem to find any resources on how to further diagnose this problem, anybody have any suggestions? Is it possible to switch the upower backend from systemd-suspend to pm-suspend?
