Macbook 2011 crashes on lid close / power button - F37

Hello there,

I am trying to run Fedora on an Old Macbook 2011. Everything works great, but the system crashes everytime I close the lid or press the power button without holding it (probably puts it into hibernatiion/power saver)

I am noobish with linux, but googled the problem quite extensively, but non of the fixes worked. The last one was about nvidia drivers, but appearently I have an Intel HD Graphics Card (DUH). This turned my screen completely blank. I then figured out how to modify the boot options to boot in text mode and remove the false driver.

Which I was pretty proud of. This is round about the farthest I ever went. So please don’t bash me, if it is an easy fix I overlooked. I actually tried fixing it myself and googling it before posting here.

From what I understand the following output logs are often necessary to troubleshoot this problem, so I added them. As new user I can only post two links, thats why the lspci is without pastebin.

Thank you for your help.
