Linux – Fixing Suspend/Resume on Intel Lenovo Thinkpad or ThinkBook on kernel 5.19 , 6.0 and up

I saw a thread on Reddit where Thinkpad users (with Intel processors) also had difficulties with laptop resuming from sleep. I guess it’s time for an Intel version of my article.

Fix suspend and resume

to find your kernel version, type

uname -a

For kernel 5.19, 6.0 and newer


On a GRUB system

If your system uses GRUB, edit the /etc/default/grub file. On the following line :


add the following :

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash  <put parameter here>"

This part can vary a lot between distributions, apply the changes with the following:

sudo update-grub


grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

and finally


On a SYSTEMD-BOOT system

edit your config file, it could be any of the following:


Note: on PopOS! the file is called : /boot/efi/loader/entries/Pop_OS-current.conf

If you still can’t find it, try with this:

sudo find /boot -iname '*.conf'

In your file you should see something similar as :

options root="LABEL=arch_os" rw

add the new option before the last double quote, like this:

options root="LABEL=arch_os" rw  <put your parameter here>

Note: on PopOS! it will look like this, add the intel_iommu=igfx_off after ro.

options root=UUID=... ro    intel_iommu=igfx_off   quiet loglevel=0 systemd.show_status=false splash
