Does Fedora do laptop suspend - wake?

I’ve started to use Fedora 35 (and 36) on my macbook pro 2015 as my daily driver. I really love the Linux desktop experience so far, especially Fedora, but there’s one thing that distro seems to have issues with: waking up from a suspend

Does anyone have a solution for this? Do I change the default install setup? Any special dance at midnight golding the neighbour’s cat?

I’ve tried Ubuntu, Manjaro and PopOS so far, love them and wake from suspend works out of the box, but really like Fedora for the pure Gnome experience… If only I did not have to hard restart my machine after each suspend. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

@Conan_Kudo I know you use a Macbook with Fedora do you have an idea what could be causing this? I vaguely remember there being a suspend issue on the 2013-2015 Macbook Pros.

Both my models have NVIDIA GPUs (2009 MBP and 2014 MBP), and so in order for me to have all that stuff work properly, I needed the proprietary driver. I don’t use the proprietary driver anymore on my 2009 MBP since it’s old enough that nouveau works reasonably okay now, but I haven’t tried nouveau and suspend with the 2014 MBP (which has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M).

What graphics card does your 2015 MacBook Pro have?

My macbook pro model has the Intel Iris Pro Graphics card in it.

The GT 750M is a Kepler-based card currently supported up to NVIDIA driver 418. I believe this driver precedes Vulkan support. No further driver support is likely.

Kepler cards are to this day the most sophisticated cards properly supported by nouveau (reclocking usually supported, no untouchable firmware) but nouveau doesn’t have and probably won’t get Vulkan drivers either.

I’m not entirely sure why I’m so caught up on Vulkan support but probably because I just woke up and I’m still a little hazy.

Edit: For example, I have no idea why I just wrote all that because upon further review, this is a thread about suspend problems with Mac hardware on Fedora 35.

All MacBook Pros are hybrid graphics systems. They either have dual graphics with AMD or NVIDIA, though.

Are you saying that Fedora is only using the Intel graphics on your computer?

Can you install hwinfo and run hwinfo --gfxcard and put the output in a post?

not entirely true, the 256Gb models only have the Intel Iris Pro
