Whew, just under the radar but I managed to submit my @socallinuxexpo talks. If you are procrastinating like I did, you only have until TOMORROW to get your talks in!

I've been trying to re-enable power management for the modem on the #librem5 running #postmarketOS, but was plagued by issues with the modem resetting immediately every time is suspended/resumed.
