Issue LM 20 Cinnamon on Thinkbook 15

Post by melvinos »


I have just installed a fresh Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon on a Lenovo Thinkbook 15 laptop.

Whenever I am closing the lid of the laptop, the laptop does not go in Suspend mode (sleep mode).

The Power Management settings are for it to go to Suspend when closing the lid.

I checked the forum and there was a command acpi_listen i believe, but i did that in the terminal and got nothing from it when closing down the lid and re-opening the lid.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

There is hardware as well as software which activates to have lid closure put a laptop to sleep. Please give us information about your install by entering this command in a terminal: inxi -Fxxxrz
Click </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply and then place your cursor between the code markers and paste the results of the command between the code markers [code]Results[/code]. This will let us know how Mint sees your hardware.
