Not sure what happened in the latest update, but the laptop is back to excessive battery drain on modern standby on Windows. No one seems to have gotten a constructive response from Lenovo to tackle to issue beyond the standard "Update to the latest drivers" and to "select the correct settings."
Also, if the X1Y3 is supposed to support Linux, it is clearly failing if the computer can't sleep properly on Linux.

It's been 73 days since the X1 Carbon 6th Gen got the S3 sleep option in BIOS, yet the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen still doesn't have it with BIOS 1.27.
The lack of S3 sleep for the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen should not be ignored, and the discussion should not be scattered and forgotten.
Please consider merging this thread with a master thread regarding S3 sleep fix: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Yoga-3rd-Gen-S3-Sleep-Linux/m-p/4235264

I raised this issue with support, and more or less they told me I could exchange the laptop if it was in the original 30 day purchase period. I initiated a return within the period to get things started, and am still debating sending it back or asking for a refund and returning it.
No technical solutions were offered.

Okay, Lenovo, seriously, screw you, I'm sick and tired of this. Since this laptop basically doesn't have a working sleep mode, I shut it down completely yesterday when I still had 51% of battery left (no hibernate, but full shutdown). When I powered it on just now, the battery was completely drained down to 0%.
Seriously, I've never been so unsatisfied with any device ever, and I've had many laptops of different brands that I've cursed a lot about, but this really takes the cake. (I mean, it isn't just the battery. The stylus was broken from day one, the keyboard gets stuck when swtiching between tablet and laptop mode, one of the USB-C ports has a loose contact, the "HDR" screen is just a marketing fraud and I never managed to get more than 5 hours of battery life out of it.)
I'll just cut my losses and sell it and get a Surface or just anything else. And I recommend everyone to do the same because Lenovo clearly doesn't care about their customers and it would be naïve to expect this situation to change.

Lenovo USB Selective Suspend Patch
choose ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd
I don't know why Lenovo is hiding this in their consumer driver dowload page.

I second this. It's ridiculous. This modern standby thing is utterly useless. I really don't know why Lenovo hasn't given us a BIOS like it did with X1 carbon. Maybe they just don't care. All I can say is this modern stanby thing is complete junk especially on a business laptop where we need to have reliablity. Worst thing that can happen is having my laptop out of juice when meeting a client. Come on Lenovo you can do better than this

yeah, I'm not being vindictive or anything, but I thought I had a brand I could trust and recommend to others, but literally the lack of response and 4h battery time off my brand new $1700 laptop has got me never coming back to lenovo. like I went through warranty support and they were just like "what do you want... send it back I guess?" christ. lesson learnt.
