It has been happening for me since a week now, sometimes when the computer goes to sleep, it isn’t completely off. The fan goes off but the CPU is still on causing it to overheat.
I don’t know why this is happening, but this caused me to uninstall POP OS and move to fedora as fedora was working fine earlier but the same issue is now their on fedora. I am using windows now due to the overheating problems.
i would really appreciate any help
Hi welcome to
Can you provide us output of inxi -Fzx
You need to install inxi for that and provide the feedback in </> format.
Also try to look into when your system fails to sleep properly check journalctl -b journal will give you what goes wrong that cause that problem. You can provide journal output also but you need a pastebin for that centos and debian and other projects provide this service.
The easiest way to have both options would be an external sdd drive where you can install Linux. Especially if you not want to loose time with a dual-boot system. You just have to write the grub2 on the external hard drive too.
Then with the Bios boot menu you can select which system you want to start.
I did not see anything wrong here you have integrated gpu and afak intel have a good reputation that mostly this issues happens in intel system is extremely low.
So i will recommend if you can see when your system fails to suspend properly you can lookinto journal it will give you the info that why it is failing if it is a bug or something you can post a bug report in bugzilla https://bugzilla.redhat.com/
Usually this type of issues get fixed with in 2kernel update so it should be fixed in 2week or so but first provide us journel So we can determine what is the error.
I think i have provided the commend that needed or doing that.
And if you need you can put number flags if you need previous boot logs.
i know that because the body of the laptop is super hot when I come back to work on it, but the fans had been off, so only the CPU or GPU remain as the heat producing components
I have an Nvidia 3050 as the gpu
No when it will be sleep you can turn back on if it fails to sleep thn you can look for journal else if you can’t turn back your system on after sleep you can do a restart and check previous boot journal with -1
I found out that my computer doesn’t really go to sleep. S3 suspend is not supported: cat /sys/power/state does not include mem and when closing the lid, the journal shows s2idle.
I then found out that my laptop does not support S3 at all because Dell hard-code disabled it because it causes a BSOD on Windows. Apparently, after the computer comes back from a S3 suspend in Windows, it struggles to setup the C-states in the Intel processor correctly. Unbelievable.
This is affecting Windows users as well, and bringing complains to Dell support about overheating laptops when “sleeping”.
