Power management

At least with all current maintained kernel (< 5.13) the laptop will fail to resume after suspension. A workaround is to disable the wake-up for the WAN modem:

# echo 'RP01      S4    *disabled   pci:0000:00:1c.0' >> /proc/acpi/wakeup

To execute at every start you can add a systemd service, for example /etc/systemd/system/wakeup-bug.service


ExecStart=/bin/bash -c "echo 'RP01      S4    *disabled   pci:0000:00:1c.0' >> /proc/acpi/wakeup"



This laptop requires firmware in order for the sound card to work. See Advanced Linux Sound Architecture#ALSA firmware.

On the headphone jack, a buzz/noise might be audible that even changes with different cpu usage. The fix is to install the alsa-tools package and then run

# hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x1d SET_PIN_WIDGET_CONTROL 0x0

To execute at every start you can add a systemd service:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x1d SET_PIN_WIDGET_CONTROL 0x0
