Suspend fails to fully suspend, leaving a blank, but dimly lit screen, running fans, and requires reboot to resume system functionality. This occurs whether executed from terminal (pm-suspend) or the Mate menu. I have read that it may be mismatched UUIDs of the partitions, and have also deleted the swap partition several times hoping it might suspend to RAM instead, with no success. From what I have read, it seems I might try changing the UUID of the sawp to a certain -- but unknown to me -- partition UUID so that they match. If so, which partition should match the swap, root, or home? It may be worth noting that I had similar suspend issues with Arch Linux a while back on another Asus, and no encryption.
