Much like some that have been posted already. I rebuilt my laptop (Dell XPS 9380) a few weeks ago, and have found a few issues since.
The system, when booting, will sporadically freeze - and at different points. There have been times when this has been on the grub screen (I see the countdown, and it will stop at 1s and no longer continue), others prior to even reaching grub, and some where it will lock up while attempting to load the system post grub.
The times when I have managed to get the system to load the log in screen, I had to unplug the USBC hubs from the laptop - which, as you will imagine, is highly inconvenient to have to unplug & plug in the hubs again each and every boot.
Once booted, though, the system generally runs fine. However, there are occasions where processes will, again, seemingly lock up, and have to wait for the application to refresh itself before I can do anything. I have monitored the system in a terminal at the time, and there does not appear to be heavy load when this has occurred.
Similarly, I have observed times where I have locked my laptop, and it will not unlock, as it has frozen (although the clock still updates...), meaning a full boot cycle.
I followed another thread, and have just installed & enabled the throttled package, as well as disabling/masking the thermald service.
I was running the previous iteration of Garuda (prior to chaotic-aur going down), where the system seemed to perform perfectly without these issues, and so I am not entirely sure what else has been updated to introduce the problem.
Here are the system details, which are typically requested. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
