More and more and more it seem that your problems focus on your this new laptop.
As I said, I'm not surprised that a new, bleeding edge, laptop gives problems.
It may be this specific item, it may be the model.

This list has mentioned in the past many laptops that are problematic and others
that seem to run Linux well.
You may want to trade this in for an older, much older, model, if having a Linux
laptop is important to you.

I mentioned I was about to give up. Looking on Google, the first reference I see to this model laptop is Nov 1, 2016. More than a year and a half ago, so I did not consider it bleeding edge. I will continue to poke around until I get angry enough to throw it.

You mention reading logs. It was a lot easier when /var/log/messages existed, and the dns-resolver wasn't polluting the world with silly resolve.conf error messages. One would be fine, but hundreds serve no purpose as far as I know.
