4.19-rc8 - debugging kernel issues - how do I get the logs off before my system crashes?

Hi all!

In my seemingly never-ending quest to get Ubuntu running well on my
Alienware 17 R5, I reported
<a href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1796743" title="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1796743">https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1796743</a> because in
any version of Ubuntu - 18.04, 18.10 etc, if you close the lid, the
machine crashes and gets put into a weird state when you open the lid
and hit the power button.
In that bug, they suggested I install the latest 4.19 upstream kernel,
which I did, and that DOES in fact fix the issue!
However, when I boot with 4.19-rc7/8 my system slows to a CRAWL and
eventually freezes up entirely after a time.

Which project should I use to submit sleep / power management bugs with ubuntu-bug?

Hi there folks.

I'm running Ubuntu 18.10 beta on my Alienware 17 R5 and I want to report
a bug about the fact that if the machine goes to sleep it won't come
back and I need to power cycle it.
I thought maybe Xorg but that path leads nowhere as there are no options
for power management.
Any suggestions anyone?

Thanks in advance!
