I installed Fedora 33 on my laptop, on the day of release, and have been using it since without issues. I’ve installed all the updates since, and last week I starting having a major issue: my computer turns off without warning! As if I unplugged the power supply and took out the battery at exactly the same time… THAT abrupt!
I realize this can be due to many things, so I’d like to ask if there is some system log that can provide clues.
Shutdown occurs even when power supply is plugged in (green LED visible) AND with battery power at 100%
Have recently been using my laptop connected to a standalone monitor, meaning that the laptop is closed and positioned vertically on a “space-saving” stand… temperature issue perhaps?
Usually happens after hours of use (around 3 to 5 hours) - again suspecting a temperature-related issue
I dual-boot this laptop into Windows 10 (for gaming) and I have NOT seen the issue while booted into Windows. This may just be coincidental, as I’m usually only in Windows for several hours… and not even every day.
I have installed TLP in Fedora 33 (don’t know if this matters much, or at all, since it was installed soon after installing F33.
Anyway… I may be biased, but am suspecting a temperature issue. If you can point me to any log that can help me troubleshoot and prevent the issue, I would greatly appreciate it.
