I have an X1 Carbon 6th gen and installed the latest version of PopOS on it. I don't have any issues with it other than whenever I close or open the lid, the laptop doesn't sleep immediately and doesn't wake immediately. It works perfectly on Windows but not on any Linux distros I installed (PopOS, Ubuntu, Mint). I mainly want to use PopOS.

Things I've tried:

  • Updating the laptop's firmware.
  • Changing the sleep state in the BIOS to Linux.
  • Disabling Intel Speedstep Technology in BIOS.
  • Changing power options from max performance to balanced in BIOS.

I don't think this is a problem with the laptop itself since, but I'm a noob with this type of stuff. Any help would be appreciated.

Have a look at this. Looks like you could try disabling the memory card reader and bluetooth before suspend. Although this is from the arch wiki, it should still be relevant for other distros.
