I’m currently running 3.07 and see that 3.10 is out. I also see references about 3.09. However, I can’t find the 3.08 and 3.09 available. Where can I find these? It would be good to always have the full history available so people can see all of the fixes that are coming in, especially after a long period of time of possibly not updating the BIOS.
Is it the drain on the main battery under sleep. It takes about 5W which may be reduced to 3W by removing some extension cards and adjust some power settings.
So without attempt to reduce the drain I could leave if for an 8 hour night but I’m not sure I’d ever be in that much of a hurry when I awake to carry on from the night before to enable sleep on the laptop.
Waking from hibernation only takes 14secs plus logging in and no loss of charge.
I’m on FreeBSD 13.1-STABLE atm (but this happened on Linux even after I switched the sleep state to deep sleep). Basically if I’m at 100% battery and I put the computer to sleep - and not connected to the charger - (hibernation isn’t supported on FreeBSD), I would lose about 70-80% battery over night, so leaving it sleeping for two days is definitely not possible. The machine is currently using 1x USB Type C and 3x USB Type A. The FreeBSD sleep state is using whatever the default S3 is, I haven’t changed any additional options (compared to how Linux has idle and deep sleep for S3).
Usually for my workflow I would leave the machine sleeping but connected (since the machine will die if I don’t as mentioned above). Sometimes I work on stuff that requires me to leave many applications or documents open so I don’t lose my train of thought and allows me to quickly resume the next day. So sleep/resume is a big convenience, but I would put it more in a requirement if push comes to shove.
I’m not saying that the 3.10 notes are incomplete, but I was saying the 3.10 release notes do not include the changes to 3.09. Maybe I didn’t include enough context in my quote, but I interpreted your earlier message as “the 3.09 notes are not relevant, because all the 3.07 → 3.10 changes (so also 3.07 → 3.09 changes) are included in the 3.10 changelog”, which is not the case (so when upgrading from 3.07, you’ll need both the 3.09 and 3.10 release notes).
As I mentioned before, I also pointed out the “missing” patch notes to customer support. It took a few tries (mostly because it turns out that their support system aggressively cuts off quoted text, so if you do bottom quoting, support doesn’t see what you write), but eventually I got the following reply:
Thank you for showing interest in Framework Laptops. We understand that you would like to see the published notes/changelogs for 3.09 in BIOS 3.10.
For now, these are not available. While we cannot promise or speculate on the possibility of including these in future iterations of the BIOS page, we appreciate your suggestion and will pass these
along to the appropriate department.
