There is an open kernel bug which causes the physical mouse button (belonging to the TrackPoint) to report release events immediately even when pressing and holding the button. This prevents drag and drop and similar actions from working.

Suspend / Resume

Suspending the T460s by closing the lid when running on battery causes the machine to freeze up entirely. This can be worked around by setting the "intel_pstate=no_hwp" kernel parameter oder by compiling the kernel with the patch attached to the kernel bug tracking this issue.

Fingerprint Sensor

The fingerprint sensor built into the T460s is currently not supported by Fprint.
