HP Pavilion - 14-al103ne Ubuntu 20.04
'top' command shows irq/126-aerdrv always running eating a lot of CPU.Top screenshot
'powertop' and 'cat /proc/interrupts' also attached. Interrupts and Powertop
I come from 16.04 where i had a similar problem with a kworker. I tried disableing gpe17 interrupt but it never went away. Upgrading to 20.04 does not seem to have helped. Only the process name has changed in 'top' from 'kworker/3:1' to 'irq/126-aerdrv'.
proc/interrupts tell me 126 is the code for IR-PCI-MSI 481280-edge. I dont know how to further find the source. This process continues even when i suspend the laptop. So suspend never works, eats up battery and CPU continuously. Any idea on solving this would be greatly appreciated.
