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

2018-09-11, 2:31 AM

Just expressing gratitude to Lenovo for resolving this issue for Linux users via the recent BIOS update.  THANK YOU!  I am now in love with this laptop.

 

Using Ubuntu 18.04... I did not experience the touchpad/trackpoint issues others are mentioning.

This is really awesome news for the X1CG6 owners - any plans from the Lenovo team to also spread the love to the X1 Yoga G3 owners? :smileyhappy:

Woo! Just want to say thanks to the Lenovo Team for the bios update. No more re-appling the DSDT patch every kernel upgrade now :)

I´ve been on the edge of going away from lenovo, as I just got one of these laptops through work. The workflow is extremely important to me, and the annoying issue with the trackpad and pointer has been driving me crazy. Although the community managed to find a workaround, I must admit i was running out of patience.

 

A huge thanks to Lenovo for actually adressing this and letting us have the full potential of this computer with linux as well, hopefully they will preserve their good reputation among the linux community.

And also thank you guys for the good efforts in the meantime. Been reading here every now and then, and I finally just had to make this account to say thanks.

Just updated to BIOS 1.30, S3 sleep is working nicely without `acpi_override`!

Really happy to see that the issue about S3 state has been addressed in the uefi 1.3 update.  Thank You, Lenovo! 

 

Please excuse, if this issue has been adressed before, but the readme of the 1.3 update says the following: 

 

"UEFI: 1.30 / ECP: 1.08 - (New) Support Optimized Sleep State for Linux in ThinkPad Setup - Config - Power. (Note) "Linux" option is optimized for Linux OS, Windows user must select "Windows 10" option."

 

What am I supposed to do with my Windows 10 / Arch Linux Dual boot system? I need both OS on this laptop. 

 

If I switch to the Linux option, how will Windows 10 handle sleep mode then? I suppose that Windows 10 can automatically adapt to S3, but the explicit "must" in the above quote makes me insecure, as it somehow implies that switching to the Linux option may have other unwanted effects on the Windows system. 

Thank You for your help.

I kind of doubt devs really track this topic, so you might have better luck asking the question separately. Also, probably, in Windows branch of the forum, because this series of OSes has official support from Lenovo.

 

You might leave a link to the question here too, I think peoples would be curious about the answer. I sure will.

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

I have updated BIOS to 1.30 and works like a charm :) 2% of battery loss in 12 hours, and no more heating issues. 

However, I could not update BIOS using a USB stick, but I found an alternative solution that may be helpful to other people. 

 

Originally, I tried to follow these instructions to create the iso image and boot from USB

https://workaround.org/article/updating-the-bios-on-lenovo-laptops-from-linux-using-a-usb-flash-stick/

But I could not make my laptop to boot from the USB despite many workarounds. 

 

I read then at the archilinux webpage (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_ThinkPad_X1_Carbon_(Gen_6) ) the following info: 

"In August of 2018 Lenovo has joined the Linux Vendor Firmware Service(LVFS) project, which enables firmware updates from within the OS. BIOS updates (and possibly other firmware such as the Thunderbolt controller) can be queried for and installed through fwupd."

 

I thus folowed the instructions in fwupd webpage

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fwupd

And it worked surprinsigly well. My BIOS got updated automatically and then I could select the LInux option at the security section. 

 

These are the 4 commands that one needs to run according to fwupd page:

$ fwupdmgr get-devices
Note: Some returned devices might not be updatable through fwupd, e.g. Intel integrated graphics.

To refresh metadata on available updates:

$ fwupdmgr refresh

To check which devices have updates:

$ fwupdmgr get-updates

To install updates:

$ fwupdmgr update

 

And that was it,

Hope it helps

ps. thanks everyone for the contributions, I could not have made it otherwise.

Some windows users have switched to S3.  There is a parallel discussion here:
