Does Thinkpad X1 Extreme support S3 sleep under linux?

Does the X1E support S3 sleep under Linux? It can't wake from suspend in Ubuntu Linux 18.10. Do we have to wait for Lenovo to offer such support through a BIOS update (like the X1C6) before wake from suspend or hibernate is possible under Linux?

Re: Does Thinkpad X1 Extreme support S3 sleep under linux?

I realize this is an old thread but... did you ever resolve this issue?

 

I'm struggling with this issue as well (which you can read more about on this forum and the pop_os sub reddit). 

 

In answer to your question about S3, yes it does appear to support it. In the terminal, enter: dmesg | grep -i acpi | grep supports

 

...and you should see that S0 S3 S4 S5 are listed.

 

Poking around in /var/log/syslog might give you some idea (although it has not for me) as to what the culprit is as well.

 

Good luck,

Pete

Re: Does Thinkpad X1 Extreme support S3 sleep under linux?

I asked our Ubuntu expert (who happens to have X1 Extreme sitting on his desk) and he's unaware of any sleep problems with Ubuntu 18.10.  S3 is the only sleep mode on this system (it doesn't support modern standby like X1 Carbon).

 

Edit:  what are you doing to suspend the system?  Close the lid?  Or something else?

Yes, close the lid, click suspend, and or let it go to sleep on its own.

 

The irritating thing is that it works for a time (several days) and then all of a sudden goes back to a black screen upon wake for a few days. 

 

I' running Pop_OS 18.10 (which is a slightly fancied up version of Ubuntu 18.10). 

 

Do a Google search and you will see that a lot of folks are having the exact same problem--and a lot are having no problem whatsoever. :/

Re: Does Thinkpad X1 Extreme support S3 sleep under linux?

I've tried both closing the lid and pressing the Suspend button, and both fail to wake up. Tweaks is set to Sleep when the lid is closed.

I've tried both the 415.13 and 410.78 NVidia drivers with BIOS settings of Discrete and Hybrid.

In /etc/default/grub I've tried adding rcutree.rcu_idle_gp_delay=1 to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= and add nouveau.modeset=0 to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX= per earlier suggestions, to no avail.

Do you have any special settings for these parameters?

I'm running 18.10 with current updates, and kernel 4.18.0-15-generic.

Re: Does Thinkpad X1 Extreme support S3 sleep under linux?

Perhaps you could ask your Ubuntu expert a few questions? E.g.
1 What NVidia driver? I've tried 415.13 and 410.78.
2 Any special settings in /etc/default/grub?
3 In the BIOS, Discrete or Hybrid Graphics?

I'm using 18.10 and keep current on updates. I run MATE and I've tried the Suspend button and I've tried closing the lid (which is set to Suspend) with the same result: the system appears to sleep (screen goes black, the power lights shift to slowly fading on/off). But opening the lid or pressing the power button fails to wake the system - I have to press and hold the power button to shut it off, then reboot.

Thanks for any help!

Well,... that is what I am running and it only works intermittently.

 

For a time I thought TLP (which is, aside for system updates, the only other thing I have installed) might be the culprit but I took it off and ran it for a week only to see no change.

Other things to look at are the amount of memory for display 256 or 512 mine is 512 .  What is your BIOS version/level mine is  N2EET35W (1.17)

Sorry, I don't follow your comment about the amount of memory for displays. Can you explain further?

 

My BIOS is: N2EET36W (1.18 )
