[Dell XPS 13 (L322X)] Laptop often suspends once immediately after resume

Bug Description

It takes 10-15 seconds for the second suspend to trigger. I can tell I'm going to get a double-suspend when the network doesn't come up after resume. I have tried the nmcli nm sleep false trick.

I still get the same behavior -- after a long pause, I get the "Failed to execute operation" error message and then another suspend:

Lid closed.
Failed to execute operation: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Operation finished.
Lid opened.

bios version is A10 and release date is 08/28/2013.

Another thing that seems related: it used to be that I could close the lid with AC plugged in, and the laptop wouldn't suspend (that's how I have it set). Then, if I removed the AC power, it still wouldn't suspend. Now, if I remove power it does seem to check that the lid is closed and it suspends.

I think this is related because I can prevent the double-suspend by either plugging or unplugging the AC adapter before resuming. As long as I reverse the state versus the power source at the time of suspend, the laptop stays on.

This thread is on point -- there is something wrong with the lid detection: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2184892

In my case I'm not running xfce power manager, but the symptoms are the same. (I have upowerd and indicator-power-service running)

Owen Williams, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your understanding.

Still happens. The most consistent way to reproduce is:

* Have laptop plugged in by AC
* Close lid
* Remove AC
* Wait for suspend.
* Open lid, leave AC unplugged.
* Wait several seconds, laptop resuspends

The best workaround is disabling suspend-on-lid-close.

Owen Williams, did this problem not occur in a release prior to Saucy?

I tried testing again with the newest Ubuntu liveCD, and at least in that environment it works correctly. And the wifi reconnects much more quickly too. It's looking more likely that this is some strange quirk of my system which has been upgraded a few times and may have some bad config hiding somewhere.

Is there an accepted way to reinstall Ubuntu on top of an existing installation, preserving at least the home directory? Otherwise I'll just flatten and reinstall and see if that fixes it.

Did a Reinstall (preserving user files) and the problem went away. Sorry for the trouble.
