Configuration

Backlight

Tango-view-fullscreen.pngThis article or section needs expansion.Tango-view-fullscreen.png

Reason: Bug report mentions video.use_native_backlight=0 - untested (Discuss in Talk:Lenovo ThinkPad X201#)

As of linux 3.16, backlight keys must be configured manually. [1] See Backlight for details.

Hibernation

Hibernation works with linux-lts 4.1. See Power management/Suspend and hibernate#Hibernation.

Troubleshooting

Overheating

There are some discussions concerning overheating-related shutdowns when running under full load (video encoding, etc). [2] [3]

Use the following thinkfanAUR configuration [4]:

/etc/thinkfan.conf
#X201 user specific
#lvl    low     up      RPM
(0,    0,      47)     # 0
(1,    42,     57)     # 2000
(2,    44,     59)     # 3300
(3,    50,     65)     # 3500
(4,    54,     70)     # 3500
(5,    60,     73)     # 3800
(6,    62,     83)     # 3800
(7,    65,     88)     # 4300
(127,  70,     32767)  # 5300

cpupower can be used for frequency scaling; see Cpufrequtils for more information. Undervolting is not possible with the Intel core iX cpu.

No speaker output

Try pressing the mute button (next to the Escape key). See this article for details.

No ACPI events

Reason: Possible solution by using Coreboot? [5] (Discuss in Talk:Lenovo ThinkPad X201#)

After suspension, an EC IRQ may hang in the queue causing all functions keys to stop working. [6]

Other issues include the yellow USB port not being powered.

Display issues

See Intel graphics#SNA issues.

Hardware virtualization

If KVM claims virtualization support is disabled in BIOS, even with VT-x enabled, disable Intel TXT. [7]
