    So, I just installed AntiX yesterday, boy was wifi a pain in the backside to get going compared to MX, but I got it going. Also a side note, the Control Centre GUI ceni and connman buttons do absolutely nothing when clicked for some reason. It is also a real pita to install newer kernels without internet so your wifi dongles will work lol.

    The issue now is when I go to logout > suspend, it doesn’t suspend but instead shuts the computer down apparently. When I come back later, it’s totally off. I don’t really know much about suspend on Linux since it has pretty much always just worked.

    Info about the hardware (yeah, RAM modules mismatched, it came that way, more matched RAM on the way):

    Hi,

    suspend writes the state of the system into RAM and powers down most other components except for the RAM.

    Questions:
    1) Did you use suspend successfully in other operational systems on the current device?
    2) Did you try to explore settings in BIOS? It might be that some settings need to changed.

    My (inexperienced) guess would be the RAM modules mismatch.
    Why do I think so?
    I know some (desktop) motherboards were known to cause issues with ill-positioned RAM modules (it was suggested to use certain slots in these cases).

    Other things to take care of: checksum the ISO you have used to install the antiX.

    Side note:
    I’ve recently installed antiX on a newer laptop and had to update the live-USB, install newer kernel and remaster/rebase.
    All using another PC with internet connection.
    This could be, if available, a less painful way of installing (with) a newer kernel without internet connection on laptop.

    I guess I have not been much of a help…

    After a lot of research, it seems that the issue might be related to an outdated BIOS and of course, Intel no longer offers BIOS downloads so it seems impossible to do an update. I have decided this motherboard is no longer worth the trouble (only supports 8GB max RAM and finding RAM that doesn’t cost a fortune has been a pain) so I ordered a newer motherboard last night.

    Glad to read you have identified the issue.
    On the other hand, the fact that BIOS update are no longer available for downloads is really… bad.
    Anyway, it seems alternate download options might be available:
    1) https://findbios.com/intel-dg41ty-bios-download/57573
    Requires registration.
    2) https://www.helpdrivers.com/motherboards/Intel/Motherboard_DG_xx_Series/Motherboard_DG41TY/

    If you manage to download it and you feel like it, you could try to upgrade BIOS as an exercise once the new motherboard (MOBO) arrives.
    If it works, then you have learnt something and may be you could sell/pass the MOBO to someone else.
    If not, then you (will) have a new MOBO.

    My experience: I’ve tried it once using a Linux tool and it failed; next time, I’d follow the instructions (upgrade using USB).
