    Could SUSPEND work on Ubuntu with AMD Ryzen 5 4500U + Radeon graphics?

    Long time Linux user here who knows only the basics!

    My go-to Linux OS is up and running on my new Asus S15 Vivobook, AMD Ryzen 4500U, Radeon graphics.

    Only problem is, suspend does not actually suspend the system, and battery drains as usual.

    Suspend is an essential part of my work flow, hence my continued quest to see if I can solve the issue. So far, no luck. I tested some other distros and suspend does not shut down the machine properly (though I tested via usb installation media).

    I have confirmed that this is not fixable with my current OS via a 43 post forum process.

    I have turned up here because I found this

    Does anyone think that installing Ubuntu 20.04 on my laptop, and then doing the AMD Radeon software update, would get suspend working on my laptop?

    I'm doubtful - I don't think my issue is with Radeon, I think it is with the Ryzen 4500U processor. However, the CPU info does state "AMD Ryzen 5 4500U with Radeon Graphics bits", so I am a bit unsure of what appears to be the combo.

    I found the linked page, became excited and downloaded Ubuntu 20.04 and planned to install it and do the AMD software update process, but then realised it's specifically for AMD graphics, which might mean that the suspend issue will remain unchanged.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Here are my laptop's specs:
