[ThinkPad X260] Performance Stutter on Fedora 39

Hi there,
i bought myself finally a ThinkPad (X260) which (i know) is not the very latest hardware but i bought one with 16GB RAM amd basically nearly unused

As i got it, i was very happy about the performance of the pre-installed Windows and was concious about finally installing fedora as my favourite OS

Basically it runns good but

  • I feel like the performance on Windows was slightly better
  • Now and then i get a frosen Cursor/System for e.g. 10 Seconds which is really annoying

As someone who does not know very much about this and could not find helpful informations for my special search for a ?bottleneck? i wanted to ask if someone of you has some ideas for me what to check or upgrade

Below some of my system information

Thank you very much in advance

You did not state how long it has been since you installed fedora.

There is one indexing tool (tracker-miner) for the file manager (nautilus) that when running takes a large amount of cpu and drive time to find and index files on the system. If that happens to be running it can cause intermittent delays in apps, keyboard response, etc.

Thanks for this hint

Using it since about 3 weeks now
