I have a ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen. 2 at hand which includes a NVMe SSD of the following model:

WDC PC SN730 SDBQNTY-512G-1001

The firmware version is 11170101 according to nvme-cli which is the most recent firmware advertised by Lenovo on LVFS [1]. The NVMe SSD seems to not wake up properly after suspending the system. I'm reproducing this with Arch Linux installed to the SSD (which obviously results in a system crash due to lots of file system errors) as well as using the most recent Arch Linux installation ISO as a live system. The exact error message I get is:

nvme 000:04:00.0: can't change power state from D3cold to D0 (config space inaccessible)
nvme nvme0 removing after probe failure status: -19
nvme0n1: detected capacity change from 1000215216 to 0

I found many similar cases involving other models where disabling APST could be used as a work-around, which didn't work for me. I also tried tweaking `acpi_osi` two multiple values advertised by the firmware ("Windows10", "Windows 2015", "Linux") which also didn't help.

Steps to reproduce the original issue:

1. Boot the live system.
2. Run `lsblk` to see the working NVMe controller.
3. Mount a partition on the NVMe SSD.
4. Suspend the system using `systemctl suspend`.
5. Resume the system.
6. Run `lsblk` again to see the NVMe controller being disappeared.

Steps to reproduce the non-work-around:

1. Boot the system with `nvme_core.default_ps_max_latency_us=0` to disable APST.
2. Run `nvme get-feature /dev/nvme0 -f 0x0c -H` to verify APST being disabled.
3. Mount a partition and suspend/resume as described above.
4. Run `lsblk` to see the NVMe controller being disappeared anyway.

This task depends upon

I can confirm this behavior on a different laptop and NMVe setup:

* System76 Lemur Pro (lemp10, Dec 2020)
* Samsung SSD 980 PRO 500GB (OS)
* Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB (Bulk storage)

Same as the original report, the 1TB will drop out sometimes after suspend, but not always. Maybe a third of the time? I've also tried the kernel parameter tweaks with a variety of settings to include 0 with no benefit. The OS drive always resumes without issue. Only the 2nd drive is affected. Reboot returns everything to normal.

Do you use power management tools like TLP?
Comment by Mark McBride (markmcb) - Thursday, 07 October 2021, 19:50 GMT
No TLP. Are you suggesting this might help? Or cause problems?

I thought it may cause problems so thx for ruling it out.
