Lenovo Thinkpad T14 Gen 1 AMD

Qubes 4.1 and 4.2 works fine
-Wi-fi works and Dock Station as well-(ish) .
-In 4.1 had to change sys-net qube in Settings>PCI>Device> Option "configure strict Reset for PCI Devices and select Wireless Controller. In 4.2 working well without it.

-Qubes 4.2 in Sleep Mode has noticeable better battery life, and with KDE desktop environment you can change battery profiles.

-When Trying to open qvm Setting it take over 3-4sec, compare to my Stationary Pc is only 1 sec, it can be very noticeable.

-Some time ago I notice Wi-fi drop after sleep Mode, and got some problem with USB,sys-net not turning automaticly ON and hanging after turning On manually.
Problem solved by removing Device from sys-net called

02:00:0 Ethernet controller: Realtec Semiconductor Co., Ltd RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller

But then I lost Ethernet connection thru Dock Station, So I had to put it back
02:00:0 Ethernet controller:
in list of Device always connected to this qubes, and Use Option "configure strict Reset for PCI Devices and select only 02:00:0
for now on that work and no Issues so far.

You can try thinkfan in dom0, maybe you will like it.

Thank you for Idea !
Had no clue there is such a nice tool.
I look at it and I see have no time to tinker, but when this start to irritate me
I would change some Fan qurve.

Right now fan is Audible but not irritating.
I use Power Mode, changes battery/Fan accordingly. (available in KDE)

  • Power saving
  • Balance
  • Performance

Additional settings in KDE give you possibility to change Start-Stop Charging.
You can have Laptop hook up to charger all day and battery will not be charged more then 80%
Or will start to charge when drops to 40%.

Thanks for the report. I just submitted a pull request to merge it to the main repository.
