I recently changed my laptop to an XMG Core 15. I installed Debian 10 and updates it from main, contrib and non-free and everything is working (mostly) fine.

Sometimes when trying to wake up the laptop, the screen freeze after the password just before displaying the Desktop. I have no access to other tty and no other choice than to restart it. Sometimes I will find my laptop super hot when pulling it out of my bag with a black screen and one or two lines saying BIOS contains WGDS but no WRDS (which also appears at every boot). Again, no other choice than to restart it.

I don't know if those two issues are related but it happens too often to be acceptable and I would like to figure out where this error comes from.

By the way, everything is working fine when the pc boot normally, no wifi issue, no performance issue.

What I tried:

I understood that this error message has to do with iwlwifi but my wifi connection works fine so it is a bit hard to diagnostic.

I search for a kernel update for my system. I currently have 4.19.0-6-amd64 which is not the newest version but I don't think there is a more recent one available for Debian 10.

My config:

Debian: Linux taniere 4.19.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.67-2+deb10u2 (2019-11-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux
