Well, your report is unfortunatelly missing a lot of basic information.

So please try to open proper lvm2 bugzilla at bugzilla.redhat.com.
If you are not a Fedora user - pick just fedora system.

We need to know your OS name and version.
Version of the lvm2 tools package.

Preferable metadata backup (vgcfgbackup)

And '-vvvv' trace from hanging command.

I guess you activation command (vgchange -ay) should be giving you some error
messages - try to use  -vvvv and attach to bugzilla.

(Just lvchange -ay -vvvv vgVM/lvVM_TP1_d1)

Note - you cannot manipulate individual snapshots - with old (non-thin)
snapshot you always work with all snapshots and its origin at the same time.
