I have a serious problem with 'systemctl hibernate' command.

It hibernates and resumes just fine, but in the last stage of resume, it completely shuts down my laptop's screen, so I cannot see anything even though I know the system resumed just fine and the desktop is running. I can even hear the music files being played that were left playing during hibernation.

If I hibernate using
sudo hibernate -F /etc/hibernate/tuxonice.conf

the system hibernates and resumes in the same way, except the screen does not get turned off upon resume (but I don't want to use this method cause there are other issues with it).

journalctl -b -u systemd-suspend or hibernate returns nothing.

What can be amiss here?

I tried running xrandr to enable screen after hibernation, but I cant get it to work properly, either.
