A true mainline Linux Kernel for the Pinebook Pro
Hi all,

I've got a major update for you all regarding S3 sleep. Thanks to a forward port of the SIP driver by @theotherjimmy the current state of the v5.5 branch does finally support S3 sleep giving you more than 200 hours of standby time.
However, there is a small catch: It does not work with mainline u-boot yet. Only the BSP u-boot is supported.

Additionally you may also see WiFi instability after sleep. I've not done any extensive testing on that yet.

With the new kernel (or other Manjaro changes?), the whine is permanent. I only get rid of when disabling audio in pavucontrol.

I've not observed any change regarding automatic power control of the amplifier. Some userspace applications tend to keep DAPM from putting the audio path to sleep though. Have you checked wether closing all open applications makes a difference yet?

Unfortunately the whine itself is a hardware issue. I can do nothing about that. However, the speaker amplifier should get disabled when there is no application playing sound.

That is expected behaviour. Headphone output and speakers are connected in parallel on the mainboard of the Pinebook Pro. Again there is nothing I can do about that. Think it should not really be an issue though.

Have a nice day,
