X1 5th overheating when charging on TB3 dock



I have an issue with my X1 5th. Actually when it's plugged in to the TB3 dock, it's really hot on the left side above the Type-C ports. It gives me the impression to charge all the time which leads the battery to warm.

I'm running Debian Buster, I'm wondering if it's an issue with Linux not giving the information to the charger to stop or something like this. The battery icon tells me that it's fully charged so I don't understand.

When unplugged it's running cold.

Re: X1 5th overheating when charging on TB3 dock

I am on Fedora 27 and have the same issue with the Thunderdock and X1C 5th. Sometimes the computer also freezes totally. Only way to "fix it" is to hard power off and then on again. Annoying.
