Ah.. I think I know what is the problem here..

The kernel was freezing userspace processes and meanwhile, you wrote "off"
to autosleep. So, as a result, this userspace process (bash) just now
entered kernel mode. Unfortunately, the autosleep_lock is held for too long,
that is, something like:

acquire autosleep_lock
modify autosleep_state
<============== "A"
pm_suspend or hibernate()
release autosleep_lock

At point marked "A", we should have released the autosleep lock and only then
entered pm_suspend or hibernate(). Since the current code holds the lock and
enters suspend/hibernate, the userspace process that wrote "off" to autosleep
(or even userspace process that writes to /sys/power/state will end up waiting
on autosleep_lock, thus failing the freezing operation.)

So the solution is to always release the autosleep lock before entering
suspend/hibernation.
