debian testing...Well, now I know your desktop, every single package you have installed, and any customizations you may have made. /s

If you have some sort of update tool installed, it could be running to check if any updates are available. Those run in the background, and could be making up for missing time when you resume that machine.

Check the unattended-upgrades package and its associated systemd units and timers.

You can uninstall the unattended-upgrades package if you must, but then you need to be diligent to check regularly for upgrades manually.
