Enable Deep Sleep mode on Tuxedo Computers Pulse 15 Gen2

A while ago we bought new Pulse 15 laptops from Tuxedo Computers.

Installed Ubuntu on them, and for a while the sleep mode was nagging me, it does not really work. Today I found time to investigate this issue.

KeepingYouAwake on Mac OS X

On my Mac, one of the annoying “features” is when the Mac screensaver comes on, the device eventually goes to sleep, and it disconnects the network. Which in turn timeouts services like Slack or Google, because these services keep a network connection open at all times. When waking up the device, I often have to login again into all the services, even though the device is just sitting in my working room on the desk all day and night. Very annoying.

I suppose it’s one of these things where Apple thinks they know better how users want their device to behave.
