System suspension don't work

Hello everyone,
as a Linux user since 2005 I was used to using system suspension. So I tried to do with NomadBSD too, but when I click on the “Suspend system” button, a message appears that says: “Command ‘acpiconf -s 3’ exited with code 74”.
I confess I don’t know what that means, so I’m asking you if you have a solution. Thank you

Perhaps the very good FreeBSD handbook can help you:
You can work with - and test - 3 different sleep states. It does not work on every machine so you have to figure it out.

Thank :wink:

Re: acpiconf(8) type 3 is normally used.

I’m not familiar with code 74, my first guess would be that you booted NomadBSD from a drive on USB.

FreeBSD can not sleep/suspend in this situation.

More generally: the FreeBSD story for storage on USB + sleep + wake is not great.

(If you inadvertently attempt to sleep the computer whilst there’s a file system mounted from a device that’s on USB: sleep might fail and it will be necessary to force off the computer. And so on.)
