I have a Lenovo Ideapad 320.
Problem: Elan Touchpad (and a cursor, of course) randomly freezes.
The system (Ubuntu 18.04) needs to be rebooted.
My workaround solution (with modprobe) is:
to make 2 scripts – I named them touchactive.sh and touchactive2.sh
in /bin ( do it with sudo gedit...or something)
modprobe -r elan_i2c
The last two laptops I had came from the same company, where they provided an HDD, in one case it was a traditional spinning HDD, and the last one just had an SDD drive. In both these cases, install linux (OpenSuse) was a snap because you had an unpartitioned virgin HDD.
I seem to remember even farther in the past that regardless of my laptop/desktop, even ...
The new HP drive you want to format was initialized with Docker as that's a Docker error message. I'd ask HP Support how to erase/reformat the drive since that's their formatting borking up your nice clean install of OpenSUSE. Perhaps you got a not entirely new laptop?
As per Acer's comments site, you really don't have 240GB. You have a pair of M.2 120GB SSDs. You can create volumes on each, then join them together with LVM, and make an ext4 partition following this article; or, you can use one for /root and one for /home .

echo 40 > /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/charge_start_threshold
echo 70 > /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/...

Then, you can change resolution without pain in the display settings
Note before starting:
This functionality depends on both your hardware and software. If your hardware doesn't support fan speed controls, or doesn't show them to the OS, it is very likely that you could not use this solution. If it does, but the software (aka kernel) doesn't know how to control it, you are without luck.
Install the lm-sensors and ...
Depending on :
your GNU/Linux distribution
the tools / settings vary to achieve what you're trying to do. As you probably know, the higher the CPU frequency, the more heat it produces (and the faster it drains the battery too).
Something you should have a look at is the CPU FREQ Governors, which is basically a policy defining how the CPU ...
