after waking up from suspend, super key doesn't work

When manjaro wakes up from suspend I experience no response from pressing on Super Key to invoke whisker. Perhaps 10 minutes later whisker menu suddenly shows up. So it seems that the is a delay somewhere. Any ideas?

Re: after waking up from suspend, super key doesn't work

Hello and welcome.

In a terminal window, run this command:

xev | awk -F'[ )]+' '/^KeyPress/ { a[NR+2] } NR in a { printf "%-3s %s\n", $5, $8 }'

...and press the Super key. When the super key is working, you should see something like "133 Super_L" printed on the screen. Does the key register anything (in xorg) after suspend when it doesn't bring up the whisker menu?

Also helpful might be your journal log entries from the point of resume to see what is happening. For more info, see: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd#Journal

When I just log in or wake up from a suspend, when invoking the 1 liner I see

133 Super_L

After a while, '133 Super_L' stops registering and the whiskermenu kicks in. In other words, whiskermenu will supersede the console and not even register that it has been clicked.

I don't seen any discernible output. For example, if I use

journalctl -f

when the whisker menu doesn't work... I don't see any output in the logfile.

An interesting anomally is that once the system 'syncs', I'll see the whiskermenu flicker on an off many times...I'm assuming it's the amount of times I clicked the Super_L key and the responses are just lagged.

So there is some sort of lag or hang happening.

I meant more with respect to the suspend/resume log entries. If there is some sort of hang happening, there might be some messages in the journal to indicate so. They probably won't be related to whiskermenu - that's probably a symptom and not the cause.

It sure is starting to sound like something is hanging during the resume that's preventing the keystroke from registering.
