Clamshell - Mode: My laptop is overheating after upgrade budgie from 17.10 to 18.04

Hi,

I’m experiencing heat issues when my laptop (Dell Precision 5520) lid is closed (see psenor temp screenshot).

My setting are:

  • Suspend disabled:
    sed -i -e 's/HandleLidSwitch=suspend/HandleLidSwitch=ignore/' /etc/systemd/logind.conf && systemctl restart systemd-logind

sudo systemctl mask sleep.target suspend.target hibernate.target hybrid-sleep.target

  • Tweaks > Power: Suspend when laptop lid is closed

Is there a fix or it it a known issue?

Sounds like a kernel issue.

Please report a bug on launchpad by running the following in a terminal:

ubuntu-bug kernel

The triagers are likely to ask you to try the latest upstream kernel either 4.16 or 4.17. They will give you instructions on how to-do this.

Note - if you didnt say to purge all obsolete packages after the upgrade the 17.10 4.13 kernel will still be available via grub - so you could also test with this and add this info to your bug report.
