systemd isn't involved in logout, suspend, hibernate or wireless
switching, so I don't think it's a suspect here. What you might want to
do is try fallback mode, or a desktop other than GNOME, and see how that
goes; the problem here may be that there's bugs in the 3D / compositing
support for your graphics adapter that become apparent under Shell but
are not apparent when using a desktop that doesn't use the same features
Shell does. That would explain why it worked okay in F14. I'd be
interested to see if it works okay in fallback mode, KDE or LXDE...
