In any case, this looks like a cinnamon issue.
My guess is, that the cinnamon component responsible for power
management not deal with the fact that logind goes away and does not
re-connect when it shows up again.

It's the responsibility of the DE to establish an inhibitor lock if it
wants to delay/block suspend/hibernate events.

As for the weird Xorg issue: My guess is, that your Xorg does not
actually use logind. I suppose you still start your X session with root
privileges and don't make use of logind to run unprivileged.
You could check your X logs in that regard.
Here Xorg runs like this:

/usr/lib/xorg/Xorg vt2 -displayfd 3 -auth /run/user/1000/gdm/Xauthority
-background none -noreset -keeptty -verbose 3

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
