Thread: Hardware doesn't seem configured correctly: 2014 Macbook

    Default Hardware doesn't seem configured correctly: 2014 Macbook

    Hello! I'm kinda baffled by this problem I'm facing. Hardware may or may not be the right section for this but I'm in the dark and it doesn't seem like a software problem...

    So here we go:

    Made the switch from OSX to Leap on my workhorse Macbook about a month ago, I'm fairly experienced with using Lynux distros but not opensuse (yet). I noticed that the battery life was immediately shortened with this new install (not a huge deal), then when the computer is locked and closed it still heats up like it's running at full power (kinda strange). My solution as of late has been to simply shut it off when it's not going to be in use for a while, which is probably a good habit, but I'm still wondering if there's some kind of background process that runs and if it's possible to get that to suspend along with the OS. Maybe whatever sensor tells the system the screen is closed isn't functioning correctly? Or, could the OS not be sending signals to the hardware to go to sleep?

    Other than that everything is functioning as it should. The system monitor isn't reporting any kind of strange behavior, and all the other hardware transferred over to Leap easily.

    Any suggestions, topics, and/or rabbit holes you have in mind would be greatly appreciated!

    Some basic technical specs on what I'm running:

    Early 2014 Macbook Pro 13
    Intel Core i7-5557U CPU 3.1GHz
    8 GiB RAM
    Intel Iris Graphics 6100
    Samsung Electronics SATA controller
    Broadcom BCM43602 802.11ac Wireless LAN



    Leap 15.1
    KDE Plasma: 5.12.8
    KDE Frameworks: 5.55.0
    Qt Version: 5.9.7
    Kernel: 4.12.14-lp151.28.36-default
    64 bit



    PS:
    As I was doing to trouble-shooting before submitting this I checked the kernel messages and found this block of alerts reoccurring pretty often:

    [ 9811.965966] CPU1: Core temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 6589)
    [ 9811.965967] CPU3: Core temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 6589)
    [ 9811.965969] CPU2: Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 14055)
    [ 9811.965971] CPU0: Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 14055)
    [ 9811.965972] CPU3: Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 14055)
    [ 9811.965975] CPU1: Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 14055)

    Does that look like it could be an issue? Could it be related to the one I mentioned at the top?

    I'd want to know whether it was KDE/Plasma causing it rather than X or hardware, by logging out of Plasma and into IceWM (very light, and already installed by default) or some other DE (e.g. LXQt or XFCE, not already installed or so lightweight) before locking or sleeping it.
