XPS13 9310 Sleep mode

Some time ago I bought my XPS 13 9310. Once I got it, everything worked fine except the sleep mode. I tried to disable S3 block, update firmware. Nothing helped. I tried many different Linux kernels and FreeBSD 13 with the same results. Everything works perfectly but the battery drains a few percent per hour. That's something absolutely unacceptable for a computer of such price. I'm still trying to fix the problem. I don't want to use Intel Modern Standby and don't understand why did Dell decide to implement it. Other laptops under Linux control wakes up very quickly without such a feature. Is there a way to get back S3 sleep state working? Otherwise I will need to buy another (not Dell!) hardware. Battery draining when computer is not in use is absolutely unacceptable on such a high class computer. Please let me know is there an option to flash specific version of firmware or something to fix the problem..

Kind regards

You can set the system to go into hibernation after some period of time which stops the battery drain.

It is supposed to behave like a smart phone when in low power mode and pop-up messages.  If it worked correctly, would you like that?  Do you run anything you would like to have message notices about like e-mail or Skype?
