Does Thinkpad X1 Extreme support S3 sleep under linux?

Q: 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?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have recently bought a Thinkpad X1 Exteme and it is running Pop!_OS 18.10. I was hoping the find a linux driver for the finger print reader. Lenovo only seems to have w\Windows drivers listed. Is there any plan to release Linux drivers by any chance? Or third party drivers that may work? Thanks

Hi Everyone, I've installed Ubuntu 18.10 on my new-ish 4K X1E. I'm pretty happy with it - just about everything seems to work OK, and its performance compared to my W520 shows it's about 2.2x faster at video rendering (yes, I was hoping for more). But the current gotcha is that I can't just close the lid to put it to sleep and then open it again to wake it up. When I close the lid, it appears to sleep: the screen goes dark and the red light on the cover transitions to slow-blinks. But when I open the cover, the screen stays dark, and all I can do is long-press the power button to shut it down and restart. So I'm wondering if this problem is unique to Ubuntu, or does sleep/wake work on other Linux distributions? In particular, Pop!_OS has been proclaimed to work right out of the box: https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2018/12/09/heres-the-best-linux-distro-for-your-lenovo-t... (The author says that sleep works - it does for me too - but does it wake up? LOL :-) If sleep/wake works for some other distribution, then perhaps it'll eventually be ported to Ubuntu - or is that just wishful thinking? Thanks! Jim

See subject.  Ever since the BIOS upgrade, the dock no longer crashes.  Two days running now with no problems; prior to the upgrade it would crash routinely when connecting via USB-C.  I had to employ the unsavoury workaround of connecting the laptop to a charger and connecting it to the dock via the USB-A port using the USB-A to USB-C adaptor supplied.  Now I'm connecting via USB-C cable only. In fact, I'd given up on using the dock at all and had it just sitting there.  I decided to give it another go after reading that BIOS v1.19 fixed instances of BSODs occuring when connected to an external monitor (which I did experience now and again when connecting to an external monitor via HDMI i.e. not via dock).    Dock Type : 40AFX1E Type : 20MF

I recently purchased an X1 Extreme. I am a developer and only use Linux. I updated the BIOS to latest (1.12), installed Fedora 28, updated the NVidia driver to the lastet. I have had zero luck trying to get brightness control working (the brightness appears stuck at max). The system runs hot and worst of all the "suspend" does not work when the lid is closed which means that the laptop is useless. I've tried almost everything that I can find to solve these issues. My grub command line is: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="resume=/dev/mapper/fedora-swap rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau mem_sleep_default=deep acpi.ec_no_wakeup=1 thinkpad-acpi.brightness_enable=1" I also upgraded to Fedora 29 beta and latest kernel:Linux extreme 4.18.13-300.fc29.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Oct 10 17:22:50 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linuxto see if that would solve anything, but it only succeeded in making booting almost impossible, It only seems to work if I boot into single user mode and then exit out. Does anyone have this solved or know if there is a solution?

I have just sent a thinkpad back for repair for the first time in over 20 years of owning  Thinkpad.  I have had 8 thinkpad  series laptops in my time as well as a few desktops and now lenovo phones. I am absolutely horrified with the diabolical Thinkpad support. This is meant to be business level support. I feel like I am phoning up Curry's.  Laptop sent back with hard disk in it and I am being told now that it "turned up without a hard disk in it". Now undercurrent of me lying. Original problem had not been assessed and I still don't have my laptop back after 3 weeks. Customer service agents just tell you anything they want to get you off the phone. I suppose all things come to an end but my loyalty to the Thinkpad brand is probably over now.  I am sure I am not the first. Has anyone else come across this?

Does the Thinkpad P51s support the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock? I have the Thinkpad P51s with stock Windows 10 Pro and updated to latest drivers and Windows version and installed the latest Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock drivers. Attaching the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to the P51s as described in documentation, it charges the notebook, however, noting attached to the dock is recognized. I've tested with attaching USB flash drives, headphones, Ethernet, HDMI, and DP, but nothing is recognized nor are any warnings/errors displayed in Windows. While the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock is listed as being compatible with the P51s and T570, the notebook order page does not list the Thunderbolt 3 Dock in any of the accessories lists. Lenovo Sales also confirmed that the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is fully compatible with the P51s.  However, I needed to purchase the Thunderbolt 3 Dock separately from the notebook order. What's going on? Has anybody successfully used the P51s or the T570 with the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock? Or is this something I need to wait for full support via a future BIOS/driver update? Or perhaps my Thunderbolt 3 Dock is defective? Thanks,Boris

Hi I bought a X1 Extreme last week and it's driving me nuts already. The notebook simply does not charge. When I plug-in the power adapter, Windows says that the power supply is plugged-in. But the battery status doesn't change, in both ways (it's not charging but also not discharging). It just stays at the current charging status for hours. I also have Lenovo dockingstation "ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock 170W" and it's the same problem. After a research on the internet, I found the following article which actually helps, but only for a single charge. But as soon as I unplug the power supply again, I have to reboot again, turn of the battery in the BIOS and reconnect the power supply again. https://stebalien.com/blog/fix-for-lenovo-x1-carbon-not-charging/ The drivers are all up to date (installed via Lenovo System Update application). Does anybody suffer from this issue aswell? Thanks for your help!

I purchased an X1 Extreme (4K) a few months ago. I have run into a few issues and was hoping I could get some advice. For reference, I have observed these issues across multiple different Windows versions, GeForce driver versions, and Lenovo BiOS versions. I am happy to answer any follow-up questions in the comments. 1.When I have hybrid graphics enabled, I have observed significant stutter when scrolling in applications such as Google Chrome, Spotify, and more, especially when opening PDFs in Chrome. Turning off hybrid graphics resolves fixes this, but I was wondering if there was another option I had other than compromising my battery life by disabling hybrid graphics.2.When I keep the TrackPoint enabled, it occasionally begins moving the cursor on its own and keeps going for a few seconds, with no apparent way to regain control until it stops. While I can fix this by just turning off the TrackPoint, I enjoy using it and would like to know if there is a different solution to this issue. Thank you in advance!

I checked mine and it was a TLC SSD. I have read online and I came to know that MLC is far more reliable and has 2x better write speeds than a TLC SSD. Who decides what our machine gets when we place an order? No one from the sales team disclosed this before order placing. How do i ask them to change it to a MLC if i want to?

I installed a new 1TB SSD - Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8. Partitioned and formatted in Windows 10, everything seemed fine. After a little use I started to get intermittent problems. Sometimes before Windows boots I get a  '2104: Detection error on SSD2 (M.2)'. Sometimes the drive disappears from Windows. Sometimes copying a file from the drive will hang and when I try to look at the file's security options in the file explorer I just see a red X and I can't see them. Crucial's Storage Executive sometimes shows the drive and says it is healthy. Other times it does not show up. Lenovo's system health check says there are read errors on the drive.  I have reseated the card a couple of times to make sure the connection is sound. Any ideas? I'm grateful for any help. Julian 

A:ThinkPad X1 Extreme new 1TB SSD intermittent faults

I have never used that drive, but I will make a general comment.  I have often had problems with NVMe drives on several machines, related to compatibility.  This is not just Lenovo machines.  My problems have been related to timing (like, I believe, yours) and ATA security (passwords).  I think the underlying issues are very technical in nature (above my pay grade), and not easily fixed.  A year ago, I spent days chasing down an ATA security problem and I finally gave up and resold the drive.  Now, for NVMe drives, I only use those that are certified  or recommended by the computer manufacturer.  My assumption on SATA drives was that they all work fine.
