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

2018-07-16, 10:27 AM

I've bought this laptop for sake of known linux compatibility of thinkpads and known durability. Since I bought it for the office usage, I don't need sleep working well. But I was thinking to buying another one for personal projects. But i think I will not do that. If you only support windows sleep nonsense that means linux has no priority in lenovo by any means. I've to use hibernate when i need portability. That sucks. About durability, oh man my backspace key got broken just in 2 days. I think i will go with system76 for my next laptop. They are bit pricey and maybe a little bit bulky, but at least they are meant for the linux users.

I updated my inital approach and packaged everything in a small script.

 

If you want to create an acpi_override for your X1 Carbon 2018 you can just use it.

Still quite frustrated about Lenovo and Lenovo's answer above.

 

I have now patched X1C6 Gen 6 with the patch from https://delta-xi.net/#056.

Worked very well with a fresh installation with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

 

Some points for the patch

  • iasl: didn't have to install latest version, worked fine with:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install iasl
  • Run point 10 before point 9 and make sure you update grub!
  • Add /boot/ to the acpi_override

 

Here are all the steps 9-10 (from delta-xi.net tutorial) that worked for me:

 

 

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Change to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet mem_sleep_default=deep"

 

 

 

sudo update-grub

After updating grub, add the /boot/acpi_override into the part, where "Ubuntu" is loading

 

 

sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
initrd /boot/acpi_override /initramfs-linux.img

Thank you very much !  It worked very well. 

And a small good news - I just got know that Lenovo is starting to work on this issue.

Please keep us updated. Will it be released in the next BIOS update?

Partner source. We may need a little bit more patience, the answer will be clear in several weeks.
