What you're describing has to be a failure of either the battery voltage sensor, Ubuntu's driver or handler for that sensor, or of the battery itself. Long run life rules out bad cells that would display as a dead battery, so it's either a sensor failure or a software issue.

The mobile version of this chipset has no fan control outputs so you do not have the necessary hardware for software fan control under any operating system. Your fan speed is controlled by your BIOS.

As far as I can tell your laptop has Intel Skylake integrated graphics. This (as well as the previous generation Broadwell graphics) is currently the subject of one or more widely reported issues that cause laptops to freeze, particularly when plugged in to external monitors :-( These issues have been reported on both 14.04 and 16.04. At present the only ...

OK, try manually suspending it first, to see what's up: sudo pm-hibernate Suspend and hybernate have issues in 16.04 LTS at default kernel. Type uname -r to see which kernel you're using, probably 4.4.0.21 or 22. Doesn't work at this kernel with some laptops. Upgrading to a newer kernel from 4.4.8 onwards fixes the problem.

Try if you can Ctrl+Alt+F1 and back with Ctrl+Alt+F7. Sounds a little like a NVidia issue I have with an Optimus chip and properitary drivers. For me this was working until the next freeze. I'm using the open source driver since then as my laptop is not used for gaming. Please post more of your specs. Update your post.

I had the same issue with Ubuntu 16.04 on my laptop. My laptop was a Dell E6420 with an nVidia video card. The issue was related to the nVidia 'open source' driver not working correctly. I pressed Ctrl+alt+F1 at the logon screen to drop to the terminal and used command line to load the proprietary nVidia driver. Working great ever since. How to Install ...

When you say "Keyboard shortcuts don't work either", does that include Ctrl-Alt-F1, to open tty1? Instead of the reboot button, you can reboot in a more controlled manner by holding Alt+SysRq and typing REISUB slowly. This will dismount the file systems normally and prevent corruption.

Open up a terminal. $ sudo su $ cat /var/log/syslog Anything unusual there? Scroll upwards to the point where it froze, notice anything there?
