    Suspend works great on my HP 15s-eq0355ng (292 €) and it is ok on my Lenovo Ideapd G50-45. Just have to close and open the lid again. S2idle is a nice addition if it's supported.

WiFi is one of the biggest power consumers on a laptop, and as you say, the whole @#$%ing POINT of suspend is that it powers everything down to, yknow, save power. I really don't want the 200GB+/day of writes to an SSD that hibernation causes as the only way to work around this sort of stupidity.

      Maybe rfkill can help enough to be a workable way to deal with things, but I'd much rather just have proper suspend in the first place.
      Yeah well, I am not gonna just shit on the concept. I am sure some people out there like it (like maybe if you use the laptop mostly in an office environment and benefit from notifications? idk). I am totally cool with it being supported as an use case.

      I am just upset that they are pushing it as the *only* supported form of suspend. Removing the traditional S3 suspend state.

        And that's why I AM "gonna just shit on the concept". It being "supported as a use case" is one thing, and I have no problem with that. But when it comes at the EXPENSE of S3 - which seems to be the majority case judging by the comments - and is objectively massively inferior to that in literally every important real-world case, it DESERVES to be objected to strongly.

        Nobody should be supporting manufacturers who are producing laptops without working Suspend in this day and age, regardless of what bull$#!t hipster excuse they use or whatever defective other forms of S3 they *replace* it with. So now this is another aspect that consumers have to return to investigating ahead of time, just like we used to have to when Suspend failed to work properly on a lot of them under Linux, when we'd finally gotten past that. sigh...

          It came with Windows. But the behaviour is the same in Windows, too. Regardless of OS, sometimes even the CPU FAN continues spinning for a while, when the system is supposed to be "suspended".

          It's not gonna last more than 24 hrs, no matter the OS.
