    You’re going to hate that laptops like the Dell xps 13 specifically stopped supporting the better, older s3 sleep. Though in some cases linux may work well with “modern standby”. It still isn’t as good as s3.

      Apparently S3 is “less secure” according to FWUPD. Fuck sleep to idle. I hope it dies and S3 (sleep to RAM) makes an epic comeback.

        Interesting. The attack involves physical access cold boot attacks and messing with the ram. At that point threatening me with a $5 wrench may be more effective. But I get the idea and a very select few folks probably care a lot about this. Shame we can’t just enable S3 in the BIOS.
