Re: X1 Carbon Gen 6 cannot enter deep sleep (S3 state aka Suspend-to-RAM) on Linux

2018-07-09, 11:32 AM

Lenovo - please don't leave loyal customers in the dark - I just replaced my trusted Thinkpad X220 with a new X1 Gen6 and it's shameful that Linux is not supported for something as simple as sleep modes, fingerprint reader or LTE modem (Fibocom) - I'm beginning to regret my purchase now!

Can I just shut my x1c6 down everytime and avoid all of this? or should I just ask for a refund?

Linux dual boot question.

 

I currently have an X1 2nd gen, with a dual boot setup  (Windows + Ubuntu) and I'm looking to upgrade to an X1 6th gen with similar dual boot arrangement. 

 

Beyond the sleep problems, are there any issues that I should be aware of?

Beyond the sleep problems that this thread discusses the finger print reader doesn't work. If you plan on getting the high resolution display it can be a bit of a pain. I wrote a bit about how handled sleep and resolution issues here: https://jonfriesen.ca/blog/lenovo-x1-carbon-and-ubuntu-18.04/

 

If you have any further questions it'd be best to open your own thread :smileyhappy:

At this time I dont believe any linx distro has the drivers that supports the fingerprint reader or LTE module. Which is why i opted out of the LTE module.

We are listening to your comments, however, our development team current forcus is to provide more stable, highest performance but lowest energy consumption,  silent and cooler systems. So far we don't have explicit plan to suppot legacy s3 on these systems.

Thanks for the answer. However, these are contradicting statements! My experience with S0i3 under linux AND windows is:

  • higher power consumption in sleep mode than any of my previous thinkpads
  • my laptop stays warm while sleeping. None of my previous thinkpads exhibited this
  • S0i3 is far more unstable under linux. (oky, no stability issues under windows)

Other customers experience the same. So if your team would focus on "more stable, highest performance but lowest energy consumption, silent and cooler systems" you would support s3 as a "legacy suspend" bios option (and imho would even considering it as default)

 

So please listen to your customers!  We have payed a high price for high quality laptop. The hardware is indeed great, but this flaw ruins the overall experince!

I agree, I love my X1C6, and the hardware is amazing. Dont get me wrong I love the laptop, but you pay the high price of one becasue of the excellent Linux compatibility. I have never purchased a thinkpad before and went off of word of mouth that this laptop is the way to go for linux. Then come to find out after I recieved it and paid for it that compatibility with certain features isnt all there and as stable as I was told. I will keep my X1C6 but until this issue is resolved if it ever does get resolved I dont believe I will be buying the next model, becasue in the back of my mind I will be worried about what is going to work and whats not going to work. The main reason for this purchase was becasue I had the expectation that everything was stable due to what I was told about it.

 

Alot of these companies want to sell you the latest and greatest but then they stop supporting it a few months after it's released. What I don't understand is if there is a new BIOS update rolling out every few months why they couldn't just add that in there.

I recently bought a Yoga X1 3rd gen. Obviosuly if I had known of all these issues I would not have bought this laptop. I managed to patch things and make my Yoga sleep properly on Fedora 28, though touch functionalities don't work anymore after wake-up. I certainly did not spend all this money to have to patch my system in order to have such basic functionalities work (I can accept that the fingerprint reader does not work, but sleep mode? No, otherwise I would have bought a desktop!). It is unbelievable to read that Lenovo is prioritizing other tasks. This is very important to fix and from what I read even easy to achieve. Please look into this!
