So I had this problem with my new Lenovo ThinkPad 13 where it did not resume from suspension and hibernation. After 2 days of troubleshooting I found out that apparently a module called intel_lpss_pci is causing the problem. When I disable it, everything works fine. I'm not exactly sure what it is used for too, as everything seems to be working just fine without it.

Now to my question. How can I disable this module for good?

I tried the kernel parameter modprobe.blacklist=intel_lpss_pci which didn't seem to do the trick and also adding it to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist did not seem to work.

Any ideas on how to proceed?

  • @jimmij This did the trick! Thank you my friend. If you'd answer the question officially I could vote it as accepted – Sku Sku May 22 '17 at 19:15
  • did you have an existing /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file or did you create it from scratch? I ask because i'm interested in knowing if blacklist versus blacklist.conf is a distribution specific syntax. – ron May 22 '17 at 19:34
  • @ron I did create it myself – Sku Sku May 23 '17 at 17:44
  • it's interesting how it's always the little things. I use Suse/SLES and the file is /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist without the conf suffix. – ron May 24 '17 at 14:02

The proper file is:


(notice the extension .conf). And at the end of this file put a line:

blacklist intel_lpss_pci
