Hi,

I'm on linux mint 17.3 Rosa with this computer and it works perfectly, I just disable hibernate because it don't work all the time, my computer don't wake up properly. I don't understand for the moment what is the problem.
so I delete the file : sudo rm /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla

For the suspend on battery, it is necessary to install and to configure dconf-editor in tab :
org > mate > power-manager > action-sleep-type-battery : put suspend else the computer hibernate after the inactive period.

I tried debian 8.2 to, Wifi must be manually installing and after installing the intel graphics, the suspend and the hibernate didn't work.
