Feedback on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Generation - Yoda2

Asked by Eric Munson on 2018-06-26

Suspend consumes far too much battery. The platform firmware does not support ACPI S3 and Lenovo has said it will never support S3 (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/X1-Carbon-Gen-6-cannot-enter-deep-sleep-S3-state-aka-Suspend-to/td-p/3998182). Instead it relies on a Microsoft "standard" of Si03 or "modern suspend". This is not well supported on Linux and may never be because the specifics of getting it right are proprietary to Microsoft, and even there battery life on suspend is terrible.

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

This is still a problem, the laptop is still listed as certified even
though Lenovo has said they will not fix their BIOS.

Can the certification status be re-evaluated? I think it's a shame both for Lenovo and Canonical that this laptop is certified but it has lot's of problems running Ubuntu:

- you need to disable trackpoint in BIOS otherwise Ubuntu 18.04 installation has no working mouse (trackpoint nor touchpad work)
- the sleep issue makes the laptop barely usable for travelering and user is required to apply hacks to workaroun the worst problems
- trackpoint does not work randomly after waking up from sleep

Hello folks,

please note that this system was certified with the pre-installed Ubuntu,
as stated on the website [1]:
    Standard images of Ubuntu may not work at all on the system or may not work well, though Canonical and computer manufacturers will try to certify the system with future standard releases of Ubuntu.

Also, there is a note for this system saying that the time for resume from S3 is a bit longer than others.

I will suggest you to open a bug for all those issues that you found with command "ubuntu-bug linux" in a terminal.
Thanks!
