I have been using Manjaro for about a year know and on my old Acer Aspire everything worked pretty much out of the box. Recently i bought a Thinkpad E15 with a Ryzen 4700U.
Since then i’ve been running into a couple of Problems, that i can’t solve by myself, nor find a solution on the Web.
First of all, the Fn Keys are not working. I can use Fn+Space to change the keyboard backlight, but none of the F1-12 are doing anything.
After changing the default to the F-Keys in the BIOS i can use them as such, but pressing Fn has no Effect whatsoever. Updating the BIOS and Keyboard-Firmware didn’t solve the problem as well.
Second, Manjaro doesn’t seem to register when the laptop lid is closed. The laptop stays awake despite a closed lid, draining all of the battery. The Setting to go to sleep after x Minutes doesn’t seem to affect it in this state as well.
Strangely both of the above Problems are gone temporarily after Suspend, but they are back after a while or a reboot.
- Last, Hibernate seems to try to shut the laptop down, but after a few seconds it sends it into a black void with a non responsive cursor instead. Only a hard reboot can save it from this state.
Hast anyone else had these Problems? Are there any known fixes?
Thanks in advance for your Help!
