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

Please Lenovo, it's been almost 1 year that this thread has started and Linux users still can't properly use your high end laptop.

 

You could just provide an alternative file for Linux users but looks like you prefer seeing them running to Dell instead ...

I second Jaybeat's sentiments: this problem should have been solved; that it has not really been solved puts me off Thinkpads and strongly inclines me towards avoiding Thinkpads in the future.

 

I know that Ubuntu too - not just Lenovo - is working on the problem; but between the two companies something (something more) really should have been done by now.

I had all this working until my motherbord needed a warranty replacement. Bios no loger has a sleep option in the power menu. Computer appears to go into standby, but battery dies after 4-5 hours

Someone - an Ubuntu developer, I believe - is currently testing a fix. To contribute to the testing, you need to download and install and then boot from a patched kernel. The download is a .deb file (and there's a .deb file of kernel headers, but not everyone will need these). Find the stuff near the end of this thread. I am testing the patch myself currently. EDIT: Arrrgh, it did not work for me.

Looks like the latest bios update does the job for me. Not in all cases but I just need to retry if it does not.

That's really not clear. Please clarify. Which BIOS update? Not in all cases - what, not in all situations on your computer? What sort of retrying?

The latest version of the bios available, I don't remember the exact version.
The suspend mode does not works in all cases but a retry usually do the trick.

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

@jnWibble for me the kernel supplied by AaronMa (canonical kernel dev) https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1791427/comments/94 is working for me and both my trackpoint and touchpad have now survived 50 suspend/resumes

Multiple things are probably neccessary that his changes work:

- update the trackpoint AND the touchpad firmware (you need windows for this) and most probably also update to the newest bios version
- ensure that the i2c-i801 module is loaded and not blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and is loaded: cat /proc/modules | grep i2c_i801

Note that the tap-to-click-not-working bug is libinput related and fixed in newer version (https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/libinput/libinput/issues/46), one can grab the cosmic version and install it in bionic

If this is not working for you, please follow the description of AaronMa and provide log files. This is the chance to get this problem fixed!

Zaphot, thank you.

 

I have supplied logs to the developer. He suspects that there is something wrong - well, you know, more wrong than usual with Lenovo - with my hardware.

 

I am doing the right think by the 12c module, though I did not know that command for checking that it is loaded - I will try that.

 

The problem with the firmware updates is that, as I have explained on the other thread, I cannot find a way of installing them, at least without dual-booting Windows or temporarily installing Windows as my sole operating system. I really do not fancy doing either of those things. Windows Pre-boot environment did not work. Imagine if I do wipe my OS, install Windows, reinstall Linux, and find that my hardware really was the problem. Also, with UEFI partitions and what not, these days restoring a disk is as easy as it used to be.
