Other

You can find more general ThinkPad Edge hardware related information on ThinkPad Edge page. The sections below provides information on what was tested to work

Hibernation & Suspend

Follow Power management#Power management with systemd guide. Works as of systemd-204-3 (CAUTION: current systemd-207-5 seemed to break hibernation)

ACPI / Fan control

Acpid works, just follow general guidelines. For Fan control use tpfanco-svnAUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] (tpfan-admin for GUI interface). Follow instructions on Thinkpad Fan Control.

Kernel Mode Setting (KMS)

KMS lets you set high native resolution early during system boot. Follow guidelines in Kernel mode setting page. Add i915 in MODULES while editing mkinitcpio.conf for early KMS.
