I create this topic in case somebody runs in the same issue...
I could not go past the Slim login screen since last SystemD update (208-11 -> 210-2) because my laptop (a M116 SU2300) goes to sleep mode as soon as the login screen appears. I can wake it up but it goes back to sleep mode after 2 seconds every time.
(Temporary) Solution: Boot with an Archlinux LiveCD/USB, mount and chroot your root partition and then downgrade systemd and systemd-sysvcompat from your local cache.
pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/systemd-208-11-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/systemd-sysvcompat-208-11-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Another fix that might work for your laptop (worked for Thinkpad T510):
Add the following to /etc/systemd/login.d
I got that solution from a Google search, but still had the same problem so I did the following as well:
Add the following to /etc/systemd/journald.conf /etc/systemd/system.conf /etc/systemd/user.conf:
After doing so, no problems rebooting. :-)
