Fwiw, you can check that by calling systemd-inhibit
This should show you which process holds a blocking inhibitor for the
key events. Under GNOME you'll have

     Who: michael (UID 1000/michael, PID 5201/gsd-media-keys)
    What: handle-power-key:handle-suspend-key:handle-hibernate-key
     Why: GNOME handling keypresses
    Mode: block

     Who: GNOME Shell (UID 1000/michael, PID 5036/gnome-shell)
    What: sleep
     Why: GNOME muss den Bildschirm sperren
    Mode: delay

Restart logind, then check logind again.
If the process is no longer listed, file a bug report against the binary
which was running that process.

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