Random Cancelable Logouts

Hello, I'm new to Linux as a primary driver OS, and occasionally the system will start to logout. This is cancelable and looking around on the arch forums, can't seem to find an analogous situation (much of what I can find is immediate logouts, freezes or crashes, which my machine isn't doing). The advice there had me sticking my nose into some logs but I can't understand much of what's there, so I figure I'll ask here.

Whilest I can't be the one to help, I can say that more information is needed about the problem. What are you doing when that logout "popup" comes around? amongst other details.

Typically I am interacting with the system in some way. Writing the above post had the system attempt to log out 5 times with no real rhyme or reason (moving the mousewheel, typing text, left clicking on links) but the time between that post and this one has seen 0, as I was not doing anything. Further I have some games I play, and while playing the game a system logout has not been attempted.

But outside of that I don't know what information I need to provide because I have no idea what information is useful as I've only been running the system for maybe 10-14 hours over the last 4 days (which is when I installed the os).

updating MIGHT be a good place to start. if you go into the Garuda Welcome app and select Garuda Assistant on the maintenance tab(one that opens by default) and click system update, you won't need to touch the terminal(except to enter your password). if you feel more comfortable in a terminal window simply try running update

Updating did not address the issue.

Any chance to find something newer?
At a very quick search I saw this one:

So, an update. I haven't tried flashing the motherboard bios, since that's apparently very risky, but in cleaning up processes that were active but not doing anything I pulled Conky from the startup sequence, as it was broken and not rendering what it was supposed to, and then rebooted. This solved the issue, as the machine has been in use for the past 3 days without a single random logout attempted.

This suggests that something may have been wrong with the conky setup. If you wish this to be a subject of troubleshooting, I would need package info (version etc) and posting of the conky script. At the same time, any wishes for your resultant conky might be achievable as well. Your machine - your way, of course :grin:
