  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Suspend drains my battery

I use an Inspiron 5505, AMD Ryzen 7 4800U. Somehow when I set the computer to sleep, power drains as quickly has if I had the computer up and running. I have been reading in many places which suggest to make them hibernate, but as this is a modern laptop I don't get to select the "deep" state. Also, many people have problems waking up the computer so that seems to make things harder.

Is there any solution for this?

pd: I also have a an Intel laptop, which the problem doesn't seem to happen.

Many people with NVIDIA or AMD GPUs do benefit from the swap to hibernate. I think someone found that the system wakes better due to GNOME shell restarting, meaning it actually stops things. It's speculation, but that could suggest that under suspend, GNOME shell keeps running actively trying to keep track of windows and apps. I don't know if any of that happening, but restarting shell would explain why hibernate resumes a nicer for people who are having trouble. I have all Intel machines and they all perform correctly, so I can't test anything about this.

To change to hibernate from suspend, you can follow this thread. Be careful though, there's three versions;
Systemd encrypted
Sysemd unencrypted
Legacy GRUB

Make sure to read the whole thread as there have been updates and inclusions since it started.
