General support

Check Laptop/Lenovo.


Install sof-firmware to make the built-in speakers work.

Power management


The trackpoint and trackpad will stop working after suspend. To fix this issue, change the "Sleep State" option in the BIOS to "Windows and Linux" (instead of "Linux").

Battery control

When controlling the start and stop charging threshold using TLP or /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/charge_control_start_threshold and /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/charge_control_end_threshold, setting the start_threshold to a value other than 0 will result in the battery not charging anymore.

Fingerprint reader

The fingerprint reader is supported using libfprint-2-tod1-goodixAUR, although the Ubuntu Certified page says it is not.
