I installed Gentoo for the first time. I selected the profile with gnome and systemd (and gdm). Everything is working fine until I leave the PC untouched so that power saving is activated or I switch to another user.
When I login with one user only (one X) the problem appears sometimes - actually the problem appears only when there are 2 X servers (if I select "Switch users" without logging in as another user). Not every power saving mode makes X unresponsive.
When I switch 2 users back and forth, there are 3 X servers - 1 for the first user, 1 for the second user and one for the gdm login screen. Sometimes one of these X servers stops refreshing (it has black or grey screen with moving mouse only), but it responds to mouse clicks and keyboard. For example, on gdm login screen if I click near the center, usernames appear for a second and if I enter the clicked user's password, gdm switches to that user's X. Sometimes X even does not respond to mouse and keyboard. If I switch consoles with Ctrl-Alt-F7, Ctrl-Alt-F2, Ctrl-Alt-F3, I can find some working X.

At the moment I have one logged in user on VT7 since yesterday, when I clicked "Switch user" and then Cancel. This created second X on VT3 for gdm login screen, which is not responding and has grey screen with moving mouse only.

Apparently, Xorg :1 has no corresponding VT3 in front of it.

What additional information is needed in order to make some advices about resolving this problem?

In journalctl I have ocasionally such messages (there are Bugarian parts, which I do not know how to fix to be English):

This most likely represents a buggy client sending inaccurate timestamps in messages such as _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW. Trying to work around...


Also there are many such:

Hi, please change your title of this topic:

Important: ADD SYSTEMD, X

thank you. personal rant and opinion: if you do not need systemd, stick to a stable solution like openrc

Hi tw04l124,
as I read, gnome 3.8+ requires systemd. Also systemd is accepted from more and more Linux distributions and some day we need to learn it.
Thank you for the advise, I added what you recomended

AFAIK needed only for a few components of gnome, see this forum. there are even peeps who run current gnome without systemd ...

and there are other init systems which works and are less a hassle. not everyone uses the only one init system called systemd.

anyway thanks for adapting the title of your post

The black/grey screen problem appears only when at least 2 X servers are started. With one X server, it runs without problems few days with multiple power savings on/off
