The correct solution to the problem I've been facing was finally solved
on comment #58, thanks @prasanth-s-cmi. I've contacted the kernel
developer responsible for these patches introduced around Linux 4.16.1
on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1571330 , and he will
blacklist my laptop model (Lenovo G40-80) for newer versions of Linux.
Meanwhile, `ahci.mobile_lpm_policy=0` can workaround this problem.

Bug description:
  First thing I notice is that the mouse cursor freezes as I'm using it,
  then I hit the CAPS LOCK key and the LED indicator doesn't respond.
  Then I try the "REISUB" command, but it doesn't do anything either.
  Only a hard reset works, pressing down the power button for a few
  seconds.

  How to reproduce?
  I couldn't figure out a consistent method. It is still random to me.

  Version: Ubuntu 4.18.0-10.11-generic 4.18.12
  System information attached.

  Also happens under Arch Linux and Fedora.
  I've talked to another user on IRC who seems to be having the same freezes.
