I’m not sure if I’m misreading the situation or not but here is my suspicion.
It appears that, seemingly at random, the laptop slows down to a crawl in Ubuntu or Windows 10 when plugged in. This happens even when I’m not using any resource-intensive applications.
Unplugging the laptop appears to resolve the issue immediately ~80% of the time.
At times, the laptop will freeze in either OS. In Ubuntu I have to do a hard restart. In Windows 10, it goes to a blue screen of death and then I do a hard restart. Nothing else works to get it out of the freeze in either OS.
Separately, the laptop also takes a long time to boot after a cold start yet it restarts very quickly.
Finally, there have been times when the laptop inexplicably shut off completely by itself or failed to respond to the power button when starting up.
I don’t know if any of these issues are related. At first I thought it was just in my head or an accident but after 3 months of ownership I’m suspecting an actual problem.
Thank you very much!
