Can't power on after Hibernation?

I have an 11th gen 13" Framework. Over the last few weeks something new has started happening. If my laptop goes into hibernation mode from linux and sits for longer than say 5-6 hours (I haven’t timed it exactly), the power button is unable to bring it back on. I have to plug in a power adapter and then the power light will turn on for a few seconds - but then shut off again. After this I’m able to hit the power button again and it’ll boot up normally.

Has this happened to anyone else? I am seeing this before and after the new BIOS upgrade.

Might be the RTC battery. If you open a case with Support and they determine that that is the issue, they will send you a new one for free. Be careful replacing it, the holder is extremely fragile. Best of luck, and have a great day!


It ended up being the CMOS battery. Thanks!


Glad that you got it working, have a great day!
