More bad news from systemd

The last weeks have been horrible. Every now and then (but within 2 days for sure) my Macbook did not recover from suspending very well. I wasn’t able to figure out what went wrong exactly, but something seemed to fail when setting the harddisk asleep. The terrible result was that the root partition was mounted read-only when the book woke up again. Because I only have /boot and /home on own partitions and /var is part of the / partition I wasn’t able to remount it read-write again. So I had to reboot often and do manual filesystem checks every two days at last.

A few days ago I sat down and tried to figure out when those problems might have happened for the first time. And then I realized that it probably began with the upgrade to systemd. I had issues back then with the supsend because acpid and systemd wanted to take care of it. The result was that acpid called pm-suspend exactly when systemd woke the Macbook up again and it never woke up at all. So I edited /etc/systemd/login.d to set HandleLidSwitch to ignore and made the in /etc/acpi handle the supsend by pm-suspend again.
