apt autoremove breaks suspend and network-manager autoconnect

After new 'chimaera' install and setting everything to my needs I did 'apt autoremove'. Upon reboot I got 2 issues - 1) after suspend I get a blank screen and 2) 'network-manager' does not autoconnect to the wi-fi.

Here is the list of packages the 'autoremove' command cleaned

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

Re: apt autoremove breaks suspend and network-manager autoconnect

I wonder, how you will reinstall any of those packages without wifi.

I can only see a few packages in that list that may be required, but you must have removed a package that you rely on.

A re-install of the OS may be easier, then just remove the accessible apps you don't want. One at a time... keep a list...

the system keeps a log here...

use cat or tail to see in a terminal/console
