Wake from sleep results in black screen / unresponsive system

I believe you misunderstood. When I wake my computer I see that the wifi powers back on (from being powered off during sleep) and reconnects to the network as it is supposed to do and this is not the problem. The problem only happens for me if I manually turn off wifi myself by clicking the checkbox in the tray menu of Plasma.

Try this: Unplug the one ethernet cable you have plugged in (all of them if you have more than one) and only use the computer on wireless and see if that helps. It's a short in the dark since you're not using an ethernet adapter but why not try it?

Mine was able to wake up this morning so it looks like I've prevented the issue. I'll post if it happens again.

I have no ethernet connected at all. My desktop is using wireless at all times. I figured one more thing though - seems like it is not even about sleeping for me. It fails to come back from the screen being turned off as a screen saver option. Meaning - i turned off sleep, but just left turn screen off after 10 min inactivity and it fails to wake the screen up. I just updated the system again - not sure if any fixes flow in so'ill retest this again

I just noticed this issue with an old touch screen POS computer I'm playing around with. I can use the brightness down button on the computer to turn the screen all the way off and then it won't go back on/up. The only way to get the screen to come back on without restarting is to sleep the computer (using the power button) and then waking it.

I just tested the "screen off only" after full system update (garuda-update) - it worked. Now will test the sleep.

I've been having this issue for a while. I rarely put it to sleep mode so haven't bothered to dig in deeper. My WiFi is on.

But if there's a power outage; I generally have to do a hard reboot on wake-up.

After the latest full system update i was able to wake my system up from sleep - it sat in sleep overnight and came back - no problem. But it seems to be having problems going into sleep mode automatically. I had to force it. This is still better though even with the manual workaround

Well, it didn't come back from forced sleep again. No updates applied. The machine starts, but the screens are not coming up....
I'm curious if some of the apps that i have running affect the behavior... will continue to test to find patterns

may want to check the motherboard's BIOS power management settings to ensure they are set to be correctly compatible (S3 for power on sleep-S4 or 5 for hibernate) and not to 'auto'.
