Sleep quality problems since updating the kernel from 5.0 to 5.2
Open, Needs More InfoPublic


I noticed that after one big update a month or two ago my laptop stopped sleeping well: it would run out of battery while sleeping overnight.

Laptop: Thinkpad X1 Extreme (1st revision)
Using Nvidia proprietary driver for the GPU.

See the update history in

It ends with the suspected large update that moves the kernel from version 5.0 to 5.2.

Any ideas on the known upstream issues to track, or the ways to investigate this, would be highly appreciated! Please let me know if I can provide more info.

Is this still an issue on 5.3?

Tested on "5.3.10-134.current #1 SMP PREEMPT" by leaving the laptop sleep overnight without power. The charge dropped to 56% in the morning. I think it's safe to say that the issue is still there.
