Yet another post about laptop suspend issues

Hello good people, I’d be grateful if anyone can help me debug.

Running an up-to-date MX Linux 21 on my laptop (MX ships with systemd included but with SysVinit, not systemd, enabled). The laptop won't suspend.

Attempts to debug:

Shut down power manager:

~ $ xfce4-power-manager -q

** (xfce4-power-manager:24210): WARNING **: 15:04:43.560: Failed to get name owner: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner: Could not get owner of name 'org.xfce.PowerManager': no such name

Xfce power manager is not running
~ $ 

Restart in debug mode:

~ $ xfce4-power-manager --debug

In a second terminal:

~ $ xfce4-session-logout --suspend

At this point the screen locks. I unlock and notice that in the second terminal, the suspend process has not completed. No new output in the first terminal. Then, after a short while, the screen locks a second time. I unlock, and note a couple of things. Firstly, a dialog:

Received error while trying to log out. GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Type of message "(yb)", does not match expected type "(b)".'

Meanwhile, the second terminal now looks like this:

~ [1] $ xfce4-session-logout --suspend
Received error while trying to log out, error was Timeout was reached

Still no new output in the first terminal.

When I click “close” on the dialog, only the second terminal changes: the session logout process exits with error status 1. No new output in the first terminal.

Power manager settings:

~ $ xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -lv
/xfce4-power-manager/blank-on-ac                        4

/xfce4-power-manager/show-tray-icon                     false
~ $ 

Using the action buttons to suspend leads to fairly similar effects (screen locks twice, no --debug output) but with slightly different, less informative error messages:

'Failed to run action "Suspend". Timeout was reached.'

or:

'Shutdown failed. Failed to suspend session. Failed to lock the screen.'

(this second message despite the fact that the screen did lock -- twice!

`xlock4` and `xfce4-screensaver-command --lock` work as they should, as does `dm-tool lock`.

What should my next steps be?
