Blade 15 mid-2021 (RZ09-0409) trackpad not working on resume

Discussion in 'The Linux Corner' started by awesomeImperialBlue706, Sep 12, 2021.

  1. Hey there

    Using ubuntu 21.04 on a Razer Blade 15 Mid-2021 (Intel 11th Gen, RTX3070, qHD display), the system goes to sleep and out of sleep just fine.

    However, after getting out of sleep, the trackpad goes funky and is completely unusable. The kernel log spams the following message:
    Sep 12 08:57:09 mana kernel: [ 571.107703] i2c_hid i2c-ELAN0406:00: i2c_hid_get_input: incomplete report (14/65535)

    This has already been reported on other systems, and vendors updated the BIOS to disable the trackpad completely when the system goes to sleep, and reset it when the system wakes up.
    Is this something we can expect in a future BIOS update? Or any workaround? I tried multiple things such as resetting the i2c bus, to no avail. The only solution is a complete reboot.

  3. Thanks, I was reluctant to post there since most comments were like "this is a vendor-side fix to make", but did anyway.

    I have been having the same problem with the same device. Can razer please check this. I can’t use Linux after sleeping I have to restart to get the trackpad working again

    Does the problem occur on Linux Arch (ie Manjaro) too?
  6. Yes, this happened on all Linux distros I tried (Ubuntu, Arch, Mint, PopOS), and is still happening as of today.

    still not working with ubuntu 20.04.3 and kernel 5.11.0-46-generic

    Unfortunatelly Razer cut a lot of corners in terms of hardware, with things that do not show that much in spec sheets and reviews. Power management especially, at least in my 2017 model, is a complete mess.
    ASPM is not supported due to the crappy wifi card. Wifi powersave not working. I also had similar trackpad issues, the cause in my case being the usb autosuspend implementation for the trackpad, or rather the lack of it.

    No wonder there is no official linux support. The hardware is not complying to industry standards so YOU have to make it work, no distro will run out of the box without issues.

    One thing you can do is type `powercfg -energy` at the command prompt in Windows (I would appreciate if you could share the generated energy report). Any errors that show up there, you should most likely address in linux. For instance if ASPM shows up as disabled due to incompatible hardware, for sure you need to add pcie_aspm=off to your kernel parameters in grub.

    As for the trackpad, if indeed the usb autosuspend is the cause, the most elegant solution is to identify the Vid/Pid for your device and create an udev rule to disable autosuspend at boot for that specific device.

    A one time command to do that in ubuntu should be something like:
    $ echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idVendor}=="vvvv", ATTRS{idProduct}=="pppp", TEST=="power/autosuspend", ATTR{power/autosuspend}:="-1"' | sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/10-razer-blade-pm.rules
    replacing vvvv and pppp accordingly.

    Hope this cand give you some direction.

    Device id in that error matches with the trackpad ID in device manager

    I tried running the following command in pop os 20.10

    echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1532", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0276", TEST=="power/autosuspend", ATTR{power/autosuspend}:="-1"' | sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/10-razer-blade-pm.rules

    It stopped the i2c_hid i2c flood messages but upon resume trackpad was very laggy and unable and laptop would randomly sleep. Any idea what I should try doing

    dani7959 New Member

    Well, since that didn't solve the problem, first cleanup and delete the file that you created: /etc/udev/rules.d/10-razer-blade-pm.rules

    Next thing to try:
    $ sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub
    backup or at least take a picture before editing
    append "usbcore.autosuspend=-1 button.lid_init_state=open" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT; it should look something like:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash usbcore.autosuspend=-1 button.lid_init_state=open"
    first parameter will disable autosuspend for all usb devices; second my help with the random suspend; if there are more parameters, leave them there
    then do
    $ sudo update-grub
    $ sudo reboot

    Let us know what happens.
    If it's not working, make sure you do again all the steps when reverting.

  13. Hello,

    I recently bought a razer blade 15 late 2021, and I have the same issue. I tried the fixes pointed out by @dani7959
    updating the grub command line did not solve the issue.

    the mouse does not stop working completely, the clicks still work and the mouse moves, but it movement is slow/choppy and unusable.


    I also tried this fix by removing the driver and adding it again. For some people it worked just fine, but for me it had no result.

    By the way, I am running Debian11 with the 5.16 kernel installed via backports.

    Same here with my blade advance 2021 model.
    Non of the fixes worked and the mouse movement is very choppy after resume from standby.
    This doesn't happen on Windows.

    Thanks for this!

    I just noticed there's a bios update available, version 2.02 :
    Apparently it was released on the 5th of January, but they only updated the page on 14th of April.. 3 months later.
    It only mentions a fix for Wifi 6E though.

    I'm running Fedora 36 with:
    - kernel: 5.17.4-300.fc36.x86_64
    - NVIDIA driver: 510.60.02
    - Mesa from git:
    - Gnome: 42.0 (on Xorg because NVIDIA doesn't properly support multi-monitor setups on GBM, see: a workaround was submitted and will hopefully land in 42.1)

    I've added the "button.lid_init_state=open" argument:
    button.lid_init_state=open rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1
    My /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-power-management.conf:
    options nvidia NVreg_PreserveVideoMemoryAllocations=1 NVreg_DynamicPowerManagement=0x02
    I don't have any issues with swapped audio channels or the microphone, but Fedora uses pipewire and a very recent release of opensound firmware:
    - pipewire-0.3.50-1.fc36.x86_64
    - alsa-sof-firmware-2.0-3.fc36.noarch

    If I understand correctly you've switched to s2idle by doing:
    "echo RP05 | sudo tee /proc/acpi/wakeup"
    And then add the following two parameters to my nvidia driver?
    NVreg_EnableS0ixPowerManagement=1 NVreg_S0ixPowerManagementVideoMemoryThreshold=10000

    I've tried your systemd service which seems to run without errors:
    apr 25 12:43:51 razerblade15 systemd[1]: Starting acpi-wake-andy.service - ACPI Wake Service...
    apr 25 12:43:51 razerblade15 sh[85155]: RP05
    apr 25 12:43:51 razerblade15 systemd[1]: acpi-wake-andy.service: Deactivated successfully.
    apr 25 12:43:51 razerblade15 systemd[1]: Finished acpi-wake-andy.service - ACPI Wake Service.
    Furthermore I've updated my nvidia parameters to look like:
    options nvidia NVreg_EnableS0ixPowerManagement=1 NVreg_S0ixPowerManagementVideoMemoryThreshold=10000 NVreg_TemporaryFilePath=/var/tmp
    And last but not least I've updated the bios to version 2.02.

    But the trackpad is still laggy and jumpy after resume from suspend.
    Any ideas?

    Here's some information regarding my system:

    Sorry, that script disables a wakeup device, which was causing my machine (2022 version) to wake immediately from suspend. If you want to switch to s2idle from S3, you need to do something different.

    Note that I'm running slightly different hardware (2022 with Alder Lake), so I'm not exactly sure what you will have.

    You can check your settings here:

    $ cat /sys/power/mem_sleep
    [s2idle] deep

    As you can see, on my system both s2idle and "deep" aka S3 are supported. The brackets around s2idle indicate that is configured as my default.

    More info:

    You can test s2idle immediately by doing:

    # echo "freeze" > /sys/power/state

    If that works and you want to set it as the default, you can set the kernel parameter mem_sleep_default=s2idle in your grub config.

    Ah I get it, s2idle was already the default in Fedora for me.
    When issue: echo "freeze" > /sys/power/state it will suspend and indeed the trackpad works great on resume :)

    It only seems that when Gnome (or systemd?) puts it into sleep mode, it'll go into a deeper state, which causes the trackpad to become jumpy again.

    So I have to figure out how to change the default sleep to s2idle instead.

    EDIT: mem_sleep_default=s2idle seems to do the trick.
    It works now.

    Let's hope Razer will eventually push a proper bios update to solve it so we can enjoy deeper power states.
