suspend with nvidia drivers

Greetings,

I am using a recently installed daedalus system with nvidia drivers.   The system cannot be suspended, with the following message in syslog:

loginctl[15454]: Failed to suspend system via elogind: Connection timed out

I spent about an hour looking for solutions.  It looks like a lot of people have the same problem.
Posting here just in case someone knows what's going on.   The driver version is nvidia-tesla-470.
Thanks for any suggestions!

Edit: there was one report that systemd does suspend successfully.  I cannot verify that since all my machines are on devuan now. I am skeptical about that claim because both systemd and elogind are likely to use the same mechanism to signal the suspend.

Re: suspend with nvidia drivers

NVIDIA has historically not played nice with suspend. I have an old T61p that has NVIDIA graphics, and it doesn't suspend correctly, either.

Re: suspend with nvidia drivers

For what it is worth, I have an nvidia card and I use the same tesla.470 series driver.  I have both hibernate and suspend working fine on a ceres, excalibur, and daedalus systems.  I use them both every day.  I don't recall making any config changes other than what is mentioned here:
