Suspend Problem and Fn-keys not working (Fedora 35)

Hi,
I installed fedora35 on my laptop but there are some problems that I have not solved the problem yet. The first problem is when the laptop suspends, it does not wake up and the second problem is Fn. combination keys (Fn + F1…F12) do not work. How can I solve these issues, any suggestions?

Hardware info:
ThinkPad
Lenovo E15 20t8s000ak09 Ryzen7 4700u 16gb 512ssd
AMD Ryzen 7 4700U with Radeon Graphics

Software Info:
Linux fedora 5.16.7-200.fc35.x86_64 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Feb 6 19:53:54 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thanks in advance
Mehmet

Hi Mehmet:

This is just a shot in the dark, but I tried to look up the keyboard layout for the Lenovo E15 and I see that it has a “FnLock” key (screenshot below). Is it possible that the Function Key Lock is toggled the wrong way? (It looks like you may need to press Fn + FnLock to toggle the setting.)

Also, if it consistently comes up in the wrong state, there may be a firmware setting to change the startup default.

Also, for suspend/hibernation, the firmware revision can be significant. Checking for a firmware update is often the first step when troubleshooting suspend and hibernation problems.

Hi Gregory,

This is just a shot in the dark, but I tried to look up the keyboard layout for the Lenovo E15 and I see that it has a “FnLock” key (screenshot below). Is it possible that the Function Key Lock is toggled the wrong way? (It looks like you may need to press **Fn** + **FnLock** to toggle the setting.)

I have tried by pressing Fn + FnLock but problem about functional keys is not solved.

Also, if it consistently comes up in the wrong state, there may be a firmware setting to change the startup default.

Also, for suspend/hibernation, the firmware revision can be significant. Checking for a firmware update is often the first step when troubleshooting suspend and hibernation problems.

I have no idea, I look at bios setting and there is no linux option in power section.

I did not see any driver for linux, all are available for Windows operating system in their support page

There appears to be a “BIOS Update (Bootable CD)” option under BIOS/UEFI. Can you use that to update your system’s firmware?

FnLock fix worked for me on my X1 Carbon. Thank you for posting this @glb , much appreciated!
