Steps while and after clean installing:

  • I saved a Full-Disk-Image Windows in case i needed to update the BIOS in the future.
  • Still in Windows I updated the BIOS to version DMCN34WW
  • I chose Full-Disk-Encryption with Luks, takes about 5 seconds on boot, but works like a charm.
  • I needed to cold boot several times in order for the Wi-Fi to be recognized by linux. No it works all the time.


  • I could successfully apply the suspend-fix from here: Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14are05 - ArchWiki
  • For my Elan-Touchpad to work I needed to blacklist the elan_i2c module to let i2c_hid control the touchpad.

I could achieve that under work like casual browsing, watching videos, writing stuff - even all of that at the same time - the notebook stays 100% passive.

  • I set the Performance Mode to Battery Saving in the BIOS
  • You can activate the Battery Conversvation mode via echo 1 > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/ideapad_acpi/VPC2004:00/conservation_mode(it has to be run as root). This makes the fans less aggressive while charging, but charging the battery won’t charge to 100% anymore and probably not that fast.
  • I adjusted /etc/tlp.conf a bit.
  • The CPUs Boost-Mode (up to 4.xGhz) can be disabled via echo 0 >/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost. This will limit the CPU between 1.4 and 1.8Ghz. But unless you are compiling code or doing really heavy work, i guess you can’t feel a difference.
  • I followed Power Management - Manjaro
  • I created the following file under /usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep to execute powertop after each suspend and resume:

# powertop - systemd suspend/resume hook

case $1 in
    post) /usr/bin/powertop --auto-tune;;

and made it executeable with chmod +x /usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep

Additional Info:
I think I never read about this and it’s never adversited anywhere, but at least with the new BIOS version, one can use the second USB-Port beyond charging, no Alt Displayport though.


Hey, I’m also using manjaro with xfce on same device. How is your experience so far? Does your machine also stuck on boot when installing proprietary drivers for display from hardware configuration?

also, what did you do for fan running most of the time? I tried to set performance mode to battery saving but it did lower the performance even plugged in, do you have a different solution for it now?

I would recommend using Linux 5.14. Since then the last problems are gone, for me at least.
