Lenovo Yoga S740-14IIL Brightness hotkeys not working on Ubuntu 20.04

2020-04-26, 13:49 PM

Hi, I just installed the latest Ubuntu 20.04 and the brightness hotkeys are not working. I created a bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1872311) on Ubuntu for this, but based on the debugging the problem is on the firmware side. So Ubuntu does not register the hotkey (Fn + F11/F12) at all. Maybe this could be something for the Lenovo developers to do?

Same problem here. Do your power button and suspend on lid close are working?

Hi, my power button is working, however I have not tested the suspend on lid. I seem to have some problems with the suspend generally, though.

Same here. Power button does work, wake up doesn't, suspend on lid close doesn't. I have a Thinkpad P73.

Brightness hotkeys are usually F5 and F6 for background brightness, if you have an OLED panel on your system, there are some issues in that panel for brightness that is fixed in a 5.7 kernel update.

I ran into this issue myself, running Debian.
The problem resolved itself after I hibernated (not suspend!) and woke my laptop.

I have a quick writeup available here.
