Hi Thiagowfx,
Sorry for the bother. I thought you were the package's maintainer and maybe its author too.
So I will start a thread as you advise. I thank you for yr reply all the same.

About your query: as I understand the litterature on and about 'netctl-auto-resume', it is perfectly compatible with 'netctl-ifplugd'. The only purpose for the former is to force restart of the WiFi NIC in case it does not restart on its own afer either a perdiod of hibernation (suspend-to-disk) or after a suspend (suspend-to-RAM). As I understand it, it is only meant to serve that purpose when the OS resumes its activity.
Cheers.

Hi Cbhihe,

I'm not currently using netctl, so it will be hard to advise you. I would recommend you to create a thread in the forums, maybe someone could you help you there.

That said, this is the wiki article that is related to this package, you might try to find help there: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Netctl#Problems_with_netctl-auto_on_resume

There is also another thing that I don't understand in your setup: you're using both ifplugd (which is supposed to be used with cable / Ethernet) *and* enabling netctl-auto-resume for a Wi-Fi interface. I think these might not be compatible, you could try to disable ifplugd to check if netctl-auto-resume would then work.

And as for your original question, you don't need hibernation for this package to work.

Hi thiagowfx, do I need to have power management and in particular suspend and hibernation covered for ythis to work ?

I have netctl, netctl-auto and netctl-ifplugd enabled, and started. Everything works as expected here, but I have done nothing to install power management services yet on my 4.13.4-1-ARCH.

After an uneventful (read "apparently successful") install from git-clone I find that:
$ sudo systemctl *enable* netctl-auto-resume@wifi0.service
followed by same with *start*
followed by same with *status*
gives me an enabled but dead service, while
$ systemctl status
State: running
Jobs: 0 queued
Failed: 0 units

Am I doing something wrong here. I think I am missing something. Cheers.
