Yes, but that is not an admission of preferring systemd. ;-)

By closing the lid, it's a laptop (asus zenbook)

I think you're on to something. When I CTRL+ATL+L the system, and then
close the lid, the post-hibernation resume works correctly (no screen

is it just as straight forward without it on desktops/laptops?
