I wonder why systemd prevents suspend when a user is still logged in. I mean, you can tell it to suspend anyway using systemctl suspend -i, but whatʼs the rationale behind the extra flag?

Please refrain from bashing systemd on this thread; iʼm just curious about design decisions here.

@gergely hmm, does it? on my system, suspend will happen if i'm still logged in but hop out to the display manager. i guess gdm or whatever it is could be managing that, though.


@gergely (sorry, this is a very fuzzy-headed post. it's late at night. i realized i haven't developed much mental model of systemd's handling of this stuff.)
