I would love to switch to elementary OS/ubuntu full time but there are just a few issues holding me back right now.

  1. My laptop does not go to sleep when I close the lid. The fan just keeps on spinning, and battery drains too, and when I open the lid again it seems that everything just crashes , the backlight turns on but the screen is black.

  2. Amazon prime/netflix won't load Full HD videos, they're stuck in 480p

  3. the audio quality from speakers is much, much worse than when in windows. also by default only 2 speakers work but I was able to solve that with the solution provided here.

My laptop is a HP envy x360 with Ryzen 3500u and I've tried updating to the latest kernel(5.9) with UKUU.

Is there any way to solve these issues?

If you set the power button function in the OS to sleep when pressed, does it sleep?

Trying to determine if this is an OS or laptop problem.

  • No it doesn't i can set it to sleep, or click on suspend from the wingpanel or just close the lid, the outcome is the same. Commented Nov 14, 2020 at 14:48
