C355 All-in-One won't wake up from sleep

Question: C355 All-in-One won't wake up from sleep

This problem was present from the beginning: After leaving the computer for awhile (hours), it won't wake up; the computer is running; light indicators are lit; on/off button lit; but does not respond to typing, using mouse, and the on/off button is not responsive, even if pushed continuously. Only unplugging and plugging back in of the power cord shuts down the computer and then it has to be re-booted. Obviously, this is getting old very quickly! Is there a solution?? Thank you.

Answer: C355 All-in-One won't wake up from sleep

Hi MB59,

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums

I?m sorry to hear that your C355 All-in-One computer is not waking up after sleep, I suggest you to install the Chipset and Display driver in the computer. While installing right click on the downloaded file and select ?Run as administrator? option, below is the link to download the exact drivers:

My PC is fairly new and I'm having problems with slow shutdowns/restarts and slow sleep/wakes. Recently it seems to fail waking altogether and restarts after a while instead. Usually during waking I just have a black screen for a long time before the reset/restart but sometimes I see the Windows log-in screen but it's unresponsive.
The problem predates my CPU undervolting and doesn't seem to change when I switch RAM settings back to Auto instead of XMP (I my RAM necessitates some kind of overclock in order to function at its rated speed).

Can anyone advise how to proceed? Thanks.

Hi,

I am new here. Hoping someone can help me out with this issue. I work in IT so am not a complete computer bonehead and am at my wits end with this.

My laptop is about 4 years old, it's a toshiba. For whatever reason, it started taking 5+ minutes to wake up from sleeping. If it sleeps for an hour, it's OK.. but if you leave it sleep all night and try to wake it up in the morning, it's quite cranky. After the 5+ minute wake up, it performs as normal. It was running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.

Troubleshooting steps that I have taken are as follows.

Reinstalled windows. Issue was resolved! but after about 2-3 weeks, issue came back. I thought maybe it was some type of windows update, so I reinstalled windows again and paid closer attention to the updates. Issue presented itself again after 2-3 weeks, and there were no updates immediately done prior to it starting.

I started to think maybe it was something related to my hard drive, so i performed laptop surgery and swapped out my original hard drive with a solid slate drive, and installed windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (this laptop can support 64 bit so I figured why not upgrade.).

issue again was resolved for a few weeks, and now it's back to taking 5+ minutes to wake up again.

If you're turning the laptop on from scratch, it takes 10-15 seconds tops. if you're restarting, it's 10-15 seconds tops (man, I love SSD...)... if you're waking itup within the hour, its 1-2 seconds. But anything longer then that, 5+ minutes.

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 with WinXPPro SP3, 2GB RAM and an Intel Core 2 Duo E4600, and it is unreliable for Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring. I also wonder whether my Standby - Sleep - Suspend (S1 or S3) is working correctly.

When the PC is in Standby - Sleep - Suspend mode (S1 or S3), Wake on LAN and Wake on Ring work some of the time but not all of the time, and I'd like them to be 100% reliable.

These may be two different problems, but your advice will be appreciated. (Also, if I should post in a different forum, please advise.)

My Network Card is an Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection, and I recently upgraded its drivers using "generic" PROXP.exe from the Intel website, although this has not helped the problem. The specific driver file e1e5132.sys is now from 2009 -- it used to be from 2007. But, as I say, Wake on LAN from Standby was not and is still not reliable, both before and after the driver update.

In Settings .. Network Connections ... Local Area Connections ... Properties ... Configure ... Power Management, all the Wake on LAN options are checked ON:

- Wake on Directed Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet
- Wake on Magic Packet from Power Off State
- Wake on Link

The NIC card's Diagnostic checks are all OK.

Answer:Trouble with Wake on Ring, Wake on LAN and Standby - Sleep - Suspend

More to above: Dell has suggested I must re-install Windows. I've never done that, and I realize I'd probably lose all my applications and data - no good. Seems to me that's like using an atomic bomb to kill a mosquito. And why should I assume that will work?

But is there a way to re-install -- or maybe fix -- Windows that leaves everything else safe?

FYI - About a month or so ago, I ran SFC (System File Checker) in repair mode, and that didn't help with this problem.

Any ideas?

When I put my computer in sleep mode, it won't 'wake up'. I have to manually turn off the computer and then start it up again. This has happened twice. I'm not putting it into sleep mode until I find out what's wrong and that's exasperating as I normally leave my computer on all day so I can periodically play my games.

I have an issue with the sleep function. The computer does not awake from sleep. When I try to do it, it behaves as if it was waking, but it never ends and there is only a black screen; the mouse and keyboard are inoperative. The only thing possible to do is a hard reboot. When it boots, it shows a notice with a minute report (in the zip file) usually saying there was a blue screen, but I NEVER see any blue screen at all.

I know the power configuration is OK because I have always used the same scheme. A powercfg ?energy report shows several errors and warnings. They refer to USB and PCI (vendor 1002=ATI motherboard), but I don?t know how to repair them.

I downloaded the drivers downloader from Rrecipester.org and downloaded and installed the drivers. They are all Broadcom Corporation signed, the brand of my USB Bluetoth attachment. I rebooted after installing, as recommended. Run powercfg ?energy again and got the same report issues (in the zip file). I don?t think the processor utilization warnings to be very important because they are low and sporadic picks. It has been like this for some time now, so I don?t have a restore point. Can someone help and tell me what I can do so solve this issue, please?

Files uploaded in the attached zip:
. Windows warning after reboot
. Windows dump and xml files (2 = 1 each)
. Powercfg -energy report
I wanted to correct the thread title, but was unable to do it. Maybe someone else can do it.

Quite confident it's a driver issue, it will be very difficult to troubleshoot from the one included dump file though as it's incomplete and inconclusive.

So it sleeps no bother normally but it seems that if my htpc has woken it with a wol magic packet, it will not go back to sleep , ever unless manually put to sleep. Rebooting and automatic sleep works again. I recently reinstalled windows and have looked atvevery setting I can think of. Including unattended sleep timeoutvin gpedit which I have tried not config and set to one min. Powercfg shows nothing.

Answer:no sleep after wake on lan

I have been searching the internet and it seems that this situation is unique.

To clarify, sleep works fine but if the computer is woken with a magic packet from any source it does not then go back to sleep after inactivity. Even the monitor stays on.

In gpedit I have tried disabling allow applications to prevent sleep under power options with no change.

Anybody got any ideas, this is driving me crackers!

Hi,
I've been running Windows 7 Ultimate for the better part of a year now. For about the last week or so now, my computer is going in to (what I assume is) sleep mode at the most inopportune moments. No amount of anything will wake the computer from its sleep - not the keyboard, mouse, ethernet activity (which should keep it from falling asleep in the first place) - only a hard reboot will bring my PC back to a state where I can use it.

Some of the things I've tried, so that people don't answer with "change your power plan settings" or some such thing. If it was that easy, I wouldn't be here asking for help. I'll restate that I've been using the same Win7 Ultimate install on the same PC for a year now, and it's only in the last week this has been happening.

Anyways, I have:
Verified all my power plan settings;
Disabled any screen saver;
This is an older desktop, not a laptop, so hibernate and hybrid sleep options are not even present. Nevertheless, I've followed this guide and this one for disabling both.
Used device manager to specify my keyboard, mouse, and ethernet card as "wake up" devices. Also used the command line to manually set these as "wake from any state", only to have them all not work.
Tried changing group policy and eliminating sleep/hibernate from the user group.
As I said, it's only been doing this for a week or so now. All my drivers are current. All my system updates are current. I haven't installed any new software. I was ... Read more

I have a new computer with Vista Home Basic. If I set it to "sleep" for short periods there is no problem. The power button light flashes and if I press the button the PC resumes where I left off. However if I leave it in sleep mode for a long time, eg overnight, the PC will not awake and I have to turn the mains power off and on and reboot. The PC suppliers say that with modern computers and programs sleep should not be used for long periods. Seems strange. If I want to continue in the morning where I left off in the evening what can I do? Should I use hybernate? How does that work?

Answer:Sleep - can't wake up!

It may be considered unwise to leave your PC on for long periods when unused. The PC is still `live` electrically and is using power, still `warm` and accessible. As a result, there is the risk of damage from electrical power `spikes`, perhaps fire could result and of course it is not particularly `green`.Whether there is a real problem with it not resuming after long periods of inactivity or whether this is a `feature` of the OS I have no idea. But, it would seem reasonable for it to resume unless there is some form of software problem; bad graphics drivers have been known to cause this kind of anomaly in XP.

I did a fresh install today, complete reformat. I installed Windows Vista updates and Lenovo ones too. It still does the same thing. If the computer goes to sleep there is nothing else to do but to power it down by holding the power button for 10 seconds. This is frustrating.

Hi guys, srry haven't been to tech support guy for awhile, in case if i miss any information, feel free to remind me
and i'll post it asap.

My laptop is about 2 years old (Acer Aspire 6920), one day like any normal day i was away from my laptop
and it went to sleep. The next time i was using it i tried to wake it up, it froze for around 10 mins, so i tried to
restart it and the next thing i knew it only starts up to "startup repair". Any attempts to access safe mode to
debug the computer has failed and since then the laptop has gone on a loop -->fail to repair in startup repair
--> restart computer again --> running startup repair. So i decided to reinstall the OS.

after reformatting and reinstalling windows 7 to my laptop though, i seem to encounter a similar error. The laptop
seems to work fine although whenever it goes to sleep and i try to wake it up, the screen froze and starts
flashing and the laptop wont work until you restart the computer again. I made my second attempt to reinstall
a new OS to the system and the same error occurred. My laptop has the latest bios and i tried various versions
of drivers for my graphics card (intel 965 chipset) and the problem continues to persist.

I was wondering if there's any program to debug this error or whether this is a hardware error that i can somehow detect.

Thanks!

Hi manusdn7 and welcome

The windows memory test does not stress your memory enough to tell, plus it is run from within windows.

You need to run memtestx86

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember that memtest errors can be either memory or bad motherboard slots so you may have to test memory one stick at a time, and the slots with known good memory.

I have a 4 yr old custom built desktop upgraded from Win 7 pro to Win 10 pro about 8 months ago. Up until two weeks ago the sleep/wake up has worked perfect. Now the unit will not wake from sleep. I have tried everything I have seen and nothing has worked. It has to be booted from sleep. I have now set sleep time to never and will shut the unit down at night rather than letting it go to sleep. Anybody have anything new that I could try. Is MS working on this???

Answer:will not wake from sleep

Win 10 pro installed on a Desktop computer. Like so many I have experienced the problem with the Sleep option not allowing the computer to Wake. Nothing I have tried has done anything to change this, so I decided to not use the Sleep and to just Shut Down when I am not using the computer. It seems that the Shut Down option does the same thing as Sleep. They both put the computer in a state where it will not Wake up. The only options are to hold the Power button until the computer completely shuts down, or to hit the reset button. Now when I do a normal Shut Down I am then holding the Power Button to completely Shut Down the computer. This is totally ridiculous. Is anyone working on a solution to these problems? I also have a Laptop with Win 10 installed that is doing the same thing with Sleep and Shut Down.

Well I'm a beginner but I had a lesser important case than yours. I found you interupt a process of sleep if you try to wake it before about 5 seconds. Anyway, there are a couple of things you can try.

Unplug the power cord and plug it back in.

Pull out the wall socket thingy and put it back in.

Try doing something like booting into safe mode if you can.
The pc maybe still functioning but the monitor can't interact with it. Once you try to boot it, keep pressing F8 for about 10 seconds and then press enter. See if anything happens.

Could also be a shortcircut or something. Other people have had a similar problem.

Question: Wake from sleep

My Vista PC keeps going into sleep mode, or closes down. When I start it up again, it gets to a black screen saying continue restore, or re-start. Sometimes I get a blue screen with some sort of loading message on it, but on re-booting, it's ok. I 'googled' the sleep mode problem, and on one link it said it is commonly and registry error, and I needed to download a program to fix it. Can anyone help with the solution. Thanks.

System 2 can sleep and wake up normally when using just the nvidia 6200. It is only when the 4670 video card is used in system 2 that S3 sleep becomes an issue. Doesn't matter if its by itself or paired with the 6200.

I have tried every sleep tweak suggested here in terms of modifying bios settings and advanced power settings. I've tried the radeon driver 9.9, 9.5, and 9.3 for win7 64. There are many reports of S3 issues with MSI motherboards in general, as well as with win7 ati drivers. Open to any suggestions. Thanks

Since installing SP1 my computer has been acting like a one year old. When I put it to sleep at night it keeps waking and then goes to sleep only to wake again. Left untouched it went through this cycle all night. Starts 20 seconds after I put it to sleep and stays on for 2 minutes and then goes to sleep for 20 seconds then wake for two minutes etc etc etc.I disconnected a flash drive that I had in a USB port.
I disabled "wake timers" under Sleep in Power Options
I disabled "allow this device to wake the computer" in the properties of the USB wireless mouse
In the properties for the network adapter under the "Advanced" tab I disabled the "Wake on Settings". That fixed the problem but then I couldn't wake my computer with Logmein and I think Orb is disabled.
Noticed when I went back that there's another tab "Power Control" for network adapter. I disabled "allow this device to wake the computer" and changed the Advanced tab "Wake on setting" to "OS controlled".
Now when I put it to sleep it seems to stay down. I'll update tomorrow if it misbehaves tonight.

Answer:Sleep Wake Sleep Wake

If you think it might be the network card, you can always open a cmd prompt and run powercfg -lastwake to see which device was logged as waking the machine last.

Hi All,
   My boss just bought a XPS 15 9550 last September.  There are a few cases each week that it does not wake up from sleep.  All drivers are up to date.  I did an online check with Dell for hardware check and all seems fine.
The computer goes into some state that the screen is black, the computer is running and there is nothing else but holding the power button down to restart it.

It's frustrating.

Answer:win 7 won't wake up after sleep

Question: wake from sleep

hi-i am trying to enable wake my computer from sleep using the keyboard or mouse.i have checked all of the bios settings and neccessary power settings are all enabled.i ran the power-cfg cmd to check if my computer will allow itself to use these,and it stated that i could using s1 setting.however it still wont work.i checked on the internet,and one forum suggested it could be that i should check the option under usb root hub-"allow this device to wake computer from sleep".i cannot check any of these options as the box is grayed out.can anyone help?

Answer:wake from sleep

It may be that one or more devices in your system is/are not compatible with sleep mode, hence those options are greyed out.

Hi,

Hoping someone can help me with this.

I installed 7RC a couple of months ago. Since then whenever my pc sleeps I can not wake it up. It used to wake up fine in XP.

To get it going again I have to cold reboot or pull the plug. When it comes back up everything I was doing is still there, I just have to enter my password.

I think I have all the settings right but if someone could run me through everything that needs to be set I'd be really grateful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi group,When my PC (HP Pavilion) goes into "idle" - when I'm not using it - it will not wake back up. I get no video, and sometimes my mouse will not wake up either. When I disconnect my power cord and reconnect the computer, I am able to boot up and things work. The computer works fine as long as I don't let it go to idle. For example, when I shut it down, it will boot up fine the next time. This just started happening recently after two updates: one from Norton, and the other from Quicken. I have no idea whether one of these caused the problem. I keep my PC well-maintained with all the latest updates. I have run the power troubleshooter, as well as the updates troubleshooter, and both detected no problems. Open to any ideas you may have,Thanks,Jeff

Hello Eight Forums,

New HP Notebook. One month power on. W8.1 64bit

Setup with Classic Shell and Fast Startup Off

Have to decide next week. If I should return for new machine exchange or keep with two known issues.

1) Sleeps on timer okay. Just cannot wake from Sleep. Tap space bar. Black screen goes gray. Times to black.
Noticed ethernet lite not on. Plug is clear plastic with white led normally on and on during startup.

Suspect power to NIC not satisfied so, no wake from Sleep. Have to force shutdown. Startup is normal. Forced shutdown is not flagged prompting startup options.

2) igfx Tray Module has stopped working pops dialog box on some startups.

HP and I have been round and round. HP wants me to contact Microsoft. We all know that's not fun. HP is bad enough. Always leaving remote session with machine worse for the experience.

HP went through settings and drivers. HP un-installed, re-installed over-installed and updated drivers till they were exhausted. Using HP Support Assistant and pulling soft paks from HP.com.
Then came the requisite System Recovery. Then came more BS.

Yesterday, after a Device Manager graphics driver un-install / install. Windows Update offered it's two cents with an Intel HD Graphics update.

I can return to Staples for new same machine. No harm. No foul. No cost. New warranty period.

Machine worked no issues afaik for two weeks. Then BIOS and UEFI manual pull updates via HP Support Assistant. No issues.... Read more

Hi, I was wondering if anybody has had this problem before?

My computer was put to sleep earlier on today, and I moved the mouse to turn it back on. The power light went from orange (sleep mode) to blue (powered on). Nothing was displayed on the machine. Bashed some buttons, nothing happened, so did a hard reboot.

The power button went red (which happens if I hard reboot it) then to blue but that's it. The fans and hard drive starts going, but no beeps, no POST, no display. Nothing.

Already, I've tried:

- Reseating my RAM sticks - nothing
- Unplugging the hard drive - bf actually broke a sata slot, although he says it was lose before. The pins are not straight now and I can't get the black slot back onto the mobo. Plugged hard drive into sata 2 slot, still get no reaction.

Anything else I can try?
 

Answer:Can't wake up from sleep.

Try clearing CMOS, see if that helps.

Since upgrading to windows 10 my Aorus X7 Pro won't wake from sleep. I tried disabling hard disk sleep since it's all ssd based and that works for a little while, but after a little while it's back to locked black screen when I try to wake it up. I've been hoping the updates would fix it... But it's still there same. Anyone experience this and have a fix?
Also, email barely works now. It occasionally downloads messages, but mostly, it doesn't. Works perfectly on my surface... So I know its not my internet. So far those are the only issue... So pretty good for a brand new OS release.

I just upgraded the APU and motherboard of my HTPC and i had to format. I used to be able to wake it using 2 keyboards but now it isn't working anymore.
In the device manager, the option "allow this device to wake computer from sleep" is enabled

In power management, USB selective suspend is turned off.
My motherboard is MSI a75m-e45.

In BIOS advanced settings, in the "wake up event setup" options, there is an option called "wake up event by:"
It is currently set to "OS"

The second option is "BIOS" which unlocks the following options:
"wake up from S3 with USB device"
"wake up from S3/S4/S5 by PS/2 keyboard"

Wether i enable or disable these options, the computer still won't wake from sleep using any USB devices...

It is also impossible to wake the computer sending a magic packet with the correct MAC address. I used to be able to do that before the recent hardware change.

I use Windows 8.1, installed on a SSD
All drivers latest version

Answer:can't wake from sleep using keyboard or WOL

I have a Samsung Q330 notebook about 2 years old.

Usually, the power management sleep mode shuts down the system, including the power switch indicator, which must be depressed to wake the machine back up and resume Windows. So long as the power indicator remains lit, it takes only a touch of the pad to start up again.

Lately, however, the system goes to sleep (as do I), but the power indicator stays lit. When I return, the system is completely unresponsive. I have to hold the power switch, shut down abnormally, then reboot the system from scratch.

Wonder if there are any thoughts as to what may be causing this sudden irritant to develop and/or suggestions to try and resolve the issue.

Answer:System goes to sleep but does not wake up.

Did you install any new software or make any system changes just before the problem started?
Do you have a Restore Point and/or System Backup Image from before the problem started that you can restore?

You could try updating your video driver.

If a Memory Dump is created at the time of the Sleep/Wake Up problem, you could ask for help in the Crashes and Debugging forum.

You could try running a Trace to see if it helps determine the cause of the issue.

There is a similar post on this forum, but it does not answer my problem. Here's the issue: I bought my T440s about two weeks ago. I had Windows 7 Pro installed at the factory. From day 1, when I close the lid or enter sleep mode from the start menu, the computer will not wake up. Open the lid, press a key, press the power button, nothing happens. I can hold the power button and completely shut it down, at which time it tells me that windows shut down unexpectedly. This happens every single time. I called Lenovo Tech support. After doing several things (check Bios, reinstalling drivers, reinstalling power management, etc) the problem persisted. The support staff said that it "must be a problem with the image" and is sending me some Windows 7 recovery disks. This seems to be a major problem. From even a cursory Google search, there are many people who have experienced this with the new ThinkPads. This is my 4th Lenovo computer, and I've never had anything like this happen. Can someone from Lenovo address this? Waking from sleep is a simple laptop function.

Answer:T440s will not wake from sleep

And yes, I've uninstalled the fingerprint software, completely. The problem persists.

When i close lid or simply make mi NB sleep, when i wake up after few seconds BSOD comes up. When I removed second 4gb ram modul, it didnt happen anymore, but i dont think that is due of additional RAM, because it happens only when on AC and battery removed.

Hi friends, I recently decided to reformat my computer on which I had vista (I've done this several times before without any incidents). During the formatting, the monitor went black and showed a small window with the message "monitor goes to sleep"; neither the mouse nor the keyboard could wake it up but the computer was running normally. I waited a few hours( to allow the vista to be reinstalled from the recovery partition) and then I turned the computer off from the button. When I turned it on the first thing I saw was a line on a black screen which said that there was an error in formatting the hard disk... and nothing else. Since I could not start the formatting process again, I used an old cd with XP and tried to install xp (I assumed that formatting from a cd would erase my partition C and the recovery partition D). And here is my problem: after 10-15 minutes, during the instalation of xp, the monitor went to a deep sleep again. I left the pc running for an hour or more to let xp to install and then I turned it off. When I turned it on xp was booted but it saw only 131 gb of my 500 gb, having only one partition. After 10-15 minutes of being awake the monitor went to sleep again. I tried to change the settings for the monitor but there is no sleep option, nor hybernation, only turn off monitor and turn off pc. Somebody told me that I may have rootkits and formatting does not erase the master boot record and I should use kill disk. I did, but with the monit... Read more

Hi,

I have a rather weird problem since installing win 8. When the computer goes to sleep, my normal practice is to hit the esc key to wake it. Worked fine on win 7. Now, when the computer goes to sleep, I hit esc and the computer wakes up but only for about a second or two and then it goes back to sleep. I must wait until it goes to sleep completely (about 5-10 seconds) and after I hit esc again, it wakes up ok.

First, I'm new here and don't really know the routine of asking for help, but here I go. Also, I should have no problem understanding or doing "complicated computer stuff." lol.

So this problem has been going on since I first bought my laptop from Best Buy two years ago (December 2009). It's a Gateway NV5302. Let me know if you need anymore specs.

Whenever I put my laptop to sleep, I get the "Resuming Windows" screen then that goes away and it just stays black. It never fully wakes up. But when I hibernate, it wakes up perfectly. I hibernate my computer just about every night. And restart it like at least once a week.

My temporary solution to fix the sleep issue has been disabling it. After several hours of inactivity, it automatically hibernates instead of sleeping. So I'm sorta disguising the problem instead of fixing it.

I read this thread: Won't wake from sleep mode And that still hasn't helped me. So any suggestions?

Someone over at ASUS took a look at a minidump file and said it was nvlddmkm.sys from the Nvidia driver. They recommended updating drivers...

I have since tried both the GTX670 drivers from the install disc as well as the newest drivers from Nvidia's website with no results. I have also reinstalled Win 7 with no results.

The machine has no problems booting up and is running fine. I just can't SLEEP.

It's not the biggest problem in the world, but after spending loads of cash I want this thing to work properly. It's also driving my OCD thru the roof!

Any help would be appreciated...and lower my blood pressure. Minidump is attached. Thanks!

Answer:BSOD on wake from sleep

Try going to start > Type in the search bar "Advanced system settings" Then hit enter. Under Performance, click "Settings" > Advanced > Click "change" Under virtual memory.

Uncheck the "Automatically adjust..." Checbox up the top of the window.
Then select Custom size and set the initial size to something like 4596, and maximum 8000.

A number of work laptops Blue Screened upon wake up and I fixed most of them that way. If no luck, just set it back to automatic etc.

Worth a shot anyhow.

I thought everything was working fine, but lately I've noticed that every time I close the laptop, and it goes to sleep, upon reopening the notebook, the screen either remains entirely black and I have to hold the power button to hard reset, or it boots to the "windows did not shutdown properly" screen and forces me to restart anyways, I've tried a few options already and I'm at wits end. I've updated the BIOS, tried a hard reset for 30 seconds with the battery removed, checked multiple drivers etc. If anyone can even possibly provide some insight on this issue I would greatly appreciate it!

Checking the eventlog and the scheduler it apparently was woken up at noon today by rescue and recovery and kept running in the case for five hours until battery was exhausted. I'm not too happy about running the computer without cooling for five hours.Why doesn't the computer go back to sleep after a wake up like this? R&R wouldn't do anything anyway since it was on battery.Thanks,Anders

After I sleep my X220 and go to wake it up sometimes (maybe once a week?) it will refuse to wake, and when I push the power button the processor activity light, keyboard light, capslock light, and the backlights for power, mute etc. will flash intermittently every 7 seconds or so. The only way to fix get it out of this is to hold down the power button to shut it down and restart. Anyone know what could be causing this?Thanks 

Answer:X220 won't wake from sleep

If you are using 1.36 BIOS, revert to 1.35.

If I install the "F6" drivers via the Device Manager, Bluetooth won't wake up after the computer has been put to sleep. If I install the drivers via the .exe installation bundle, it seems that Qualcomm installs a background process named "Extension Core" (BtvStack.exe) which wakes up the Bluetooth adapter after the computer wakes up.

Problem is, the .exe installation package includes both wifi and Bluetooth drivers, and the wifi drivers have issues when installed via the .exe - as a result, I have to install those using the "F6" drivers. So I'm stuck in a situation where working wifi means broken Bluetooth and vice versa

The other day when I woke my laptop from sleep, the front indicator light turned on, I could hear the processor fan, but the screen was black (there is no dedicated on/off button for the screen). One hard shutdown later, I get the obligatory "Windows shut down unexpectedly" window after logging in, with the details saying it was a BSOD.

The last time this happened was a few months ago when I had old chipset drivers. I've had the updated ones for about 3 months with no issues.

Any idea why this would happen?

After loading the Windows 10 update my X220 won't wake after going into sleep mode.  If I induce sleep mode with the function key I seem to be able to wake it, but if the machine goes to sleep on it's own it hangs showing the windows background. Nothing I do (function keys, enter key, mouse, power key) will bring up the log in page.   I've disabled the sleep timer for the machine when it's plugged in, but don't want to do so for it when it's on battery.   Are there any solutions from Lenovo or from Windows that you're aware of?  This problem did not exist when I ran Windows 7. Specs:  I'm running an i7 core at 2.7 Ghz with 8G of ram.  Less than half of the hard drive capacity is used.

Hi Everyone,

I'm hoping you guys can help me, seeing as your the number 1 Google search and all on Win 7 threads!

I've been happily working away with Vista x64 Home Premium no problems and my Hauppage HVR2200 worked awsomely and SOOO reliably. My power was less reliable than my recordings!

However, now having Dual-booted our lovely friend Win 7 x64 first Beta and now RC 1(7100), I'm having some issues similar to those I used to have on my old computer running Vista x86 Home Premium:

1) Won't come out of sleep by the mouse or keyboard. I'm running them through a Hub but even before they were through the hub it didn't work. I haven't got any software installed for either and am going to give it a go, but it's never worked before. I've also started running MST, which I had to use on my old computer to get Vista to come out of sleep for recordings. Hasn't seemed to have worked yet.

2) And more distressingly, IF it wakes up for a Media Centre recording, or update or whatever, 9/10 times it blue screens or locks up when it does, or after its finished and trying to go back to sleep. I have several .dmp files and plenty of events, but all I've been able to narrow it down to are: I have an external hard drive that I run Roboform password manager and my email off, so its constantly being read- apparently USB devices like that can cause some trouble. OR It's a driver issue, quite possibly either the Intel RAID driver (RAID 0) I'm using or my LAN driver (Realtek RTL8168D).

Answer:Win 7 Sleep and Wake Issues

Your description of the problem implies an ACPI advanced function compatibility issue. There are two parts to this problem, the BIOS and the chipset driver. It appears you have the most recent BIOS for your motherboard. Make sure you also have the most recent chipset driver for your motherboard.

Your motherboard supports HPET (high precision event timing), which is likely the cause of your HAL errors, particularly if disabled (since your motherboard will report that it is HPET capable and Vista and 7 like to use it if possible). Also, if you are running the OS as 64-bit, make sure the HPET mode is set to 64-bit. Lastly, I would disable PME to be on the safe side. For debugging purposes, ensure the suspend type is S1.

I am randomly facing a BSOD when my PC wakes from sleep. This usually happens when Windows goes to sleep automatically and then I try to wake it after a while. However when I put my PC into sleep manually I don't face the issue when it resumes again. I really appreciate if someone can help me resolve this issue.

I suspected it was a NVIDIA driver issue so I updated and downgraded but the issue still remains. I am currently on version 326.80.

Answer:BSOD After Wake from Sleep

Only 79 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 100 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

You have a 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



This could also be a problem with the video card(s). Please try the suggestions here: Video TDR Timeout - 0x116 + 0x117 - Sysnative Forums Don't forget the video stress tests here: Hardware Diagnostics

With only 1 memory dump it's difficult to figure if this is a hardware problem or not. Normally we need at least 5 memory dumps to venture a guess about a hardware problem. I suspect hardware here (due to the involvement of hal.dll in the dump) but cannot be certain at this point.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Dear all, First time posting here. Being bugged with this problem for quite long. When i leave my notebook on which is a HP Pavilion dm4-1106tx Entertainment Notebook PC it goes to sleep as usual, however after a long period of time when i try wake it up by tapping any keys on the keyboard and moving or clicking the mouse the display will never come up.  What i noticed is that the capslock key and the HP logo on the back of the screen will blink no matter what i do will not bring up the display, last resort is to unplug the power cable, flip over the notebook and remove the battery and after few seconds put the battery back on, restart the notebook and windows 7 will say system did not shutdown properly...... i will select the normal restart. Unplugging the battery seems to be the only way for me to reset the notebook.

I will move the mouse (both the external and the built in), touch the keys, and even push the power button and it will not wake up. The power button light remains solid. The only way I have figured out how to wake it up is if I plug in a VGA cable that is connected to an external monitor or projector.Does anyone know how to fix this?

Trying to help a friend with her Lenovo desktop.

When the computer goes to sleep, the display go black and the power button on the CPU flashes.

When we touch the keyboard, the CPU begins to whir up as if it's trying to start, but the display continues to be blank AND the power button continues to flash.

The only way that I've found to get the system to come alive again is to pull the power cord and plug it back in.

I updated Windows to the most recent update. It's a rather new set up, so if the answer is to simply re-install Windows, I would be ok with that. I've read on some forums that is a possible fix, but I guess I'd rather TRY to solve it without that level of intervention.

Hello,         I have been using this new machine for last 2 months and am experiencing this issue from time to time. When I don't work on the laptop, I just close the lid. After some time, I see that the red led light on the lid goes blinking on slow pace - that tells me the machine has gone into sleep mode. Now, when I come back to the machine later, usually I see either the red led is still blinking or completely gone off. I open the lid, the machine wakes up and I can start working on.       However, at times, when I come back, I see that the red led on the lid is constantly on. In those occasions, when I open the lid, the machine doesn't "wake up". I see that the greed led on the power button is constantly on - so that kind of indicates that the machine IS probably awake. But, the screen is black/empty as if its still sleeping. In these situations, I normally end up with force restarting the machine - making me to reopen all the  applications once again, if not loosing some work/data.        Is there anywya I can tweak any setting or follow any best practice - that can prevent this issue from re-ocurring?         Thank you very much in advance for your suggestions.

Hello, I have done lots of eliminating so hopefully someone out there has the real solution for this. I have Vista Home Premium 64bit SP2. If I choose SLEEP mode it is my MONITOR that won't re-wake. When in sleep, I touch the mouse or keyboard and my CPU DOES re-wake, because I can hear the fan kick back on and the light on it lites back up, but a signal is not sent to wake the monitor. I thought it might be the video cards (I have 2 cards) so Dell replaced both under my warranty. I have made sure the video card drivers have been updated, in fact a newest published driver is only 2 weeks old. I then had Dell replace the monitor too, but that was not it either. So I have done lots of eliminating with hardware and drivers but nothing helps, so I'm thinking it has something to do with VISTA not sending a signal from the mouse/keyboard or even the CPU to tell the monitor to wake up! Even if I press the power button on the monitor, it will light up for a few seconds and then give the message "entering power save mode" and go back to black. It is like the monitor has been told 'you are in power save mode - stay there'. Lastly, another site suggested that some mice/keyboard software have an option to choose them to allow them to send a signal to wake monitor from sleep, but there is no type of choice for that on mine that I find.

I bought my Lenovo Y560 back in July, and since then I have been experiencing a somewhat serious problem. Basically what happens is after I put my computer to sleep for a while and I wake it up I get either 2 of the following problems: 1- It freezes for a few secs and then I get the message "amd driver has crashed" (or something similar to that)2- I often start watching a video in FireFox and then I stop it before putting my computer to sleep.Now, once I turn it back on and I try to resume the video my FireFox freezes, I can still do things on the computer, but firefox won't close and, If I press ALT+F4 my computer freezes completly. I highly believe that my firefox has some sort of problem, and it's the one causing this, but it doesn't make much sense to me, since I have been using FF for ever in different systems and I have never experienced anything similar to this before. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit atm,  it's not the one that came by default, because I screwed up my Home Premium  after I intstalled linux, nevertheless everything else works perfectly aside from that. I never get bluescreens or anything like that. On a different topic I would like to know how could i use the code I have behind my laptop to get a free copy of windows Home Premium. Thx for your time, and have a great day. 

Answer:Sleep/Wake up Problem

Try uninstalling FF and then see if the problem persists.(You have the option of deleting your FF profile or not, savedbookmarks, etc.)Use IE in the mean time.If no more problem, then re-install FF.Make sure your graphics driver is up to date.Use Magic Jellybean, or Activation Backup Restore toget the Windows key in use for easier activation in case you re-install.It is different than the key on your laptop.The programs can be found by searching the web.If it gets to the point where you do need to re-install,post back and a link can be found to download Windows 7.

This was on Windows 10 and I thought it was my video card drivers. I reformatted back to Win7 today and install an older version of my video driver. The problem is still happening; wasn't like this before.

Some background: at the end of January, I came out to San Francisco for a 12-week programming bootcamp. The laptop I owned was falling apart and running excessively loud, so I asked a friend if I could take his old computer with me since he just upgraded to a new one. It is a Fujitsu LifeBook T5010 (Wacom enabled, convertible tablet PC), and I wiped it and installed Windows 7 Enterprise.

It will not wake from sleep. It has been like that ever since the install, and I have tried a bunch of things to fix it. But first, here's what happens. I close the lid, press the power button, or click the sleep button, and the screen will fade and light on the power button will turn off. Then 2 seconds later it will turn back on, the disc drive will start spinning, but the screen stays black. The little light for scroll lock blinks for no apparent reason too. There is nothing that can bring it back other than holding the power button, and starting fresh after Windows yells at me because the device wasn't shut down properly.

I tried to Google, but I can't find anything that isn't a bunch of blind leading the blind. I am fairly proficient with computers.

Answer:PC Won't Wake up from Sleep Mode

System goes into Sleep Mode, but when I try to wake, it freezes with Black Screen, so I have to restart system, and when I do, it gives me a "Resuming Windows" screen and takes me back to where the I was when Sleep Mode entered.

By process of elimination, I know the problem is being caused by some newly installed software, namely HTC Sync Manager, but I don't know where/how/why the conflict is occurring...and here's the rub-I really want to keep HTC Hot Sync.

I've tested the HTC software on two different PCs running Win 7, with same result, but HTC says I'm the only one reporting this problem, so...no help from that end.

I'm hoping that someone here can give me some suggestions of things to try that might at least localize the problem or ideally be a workaround.

Thanks

I just installed a new HDD into my old Inspiron 15r n5010 laptop which I am giving to my sister for Christmas and took my old SSD out for my main computer. When I was testing the new HDD in my laptop, I would put it to sleep and when I try to wake it back up it did its little thing where it went to a lit black screen as it has always done, making me think that it is about to come on, but then it would shut down after about 15 seconds.

Anyone know anything about this? For now I guess I can just set it to never go to sleep as a temp solution :/

*Edit* clarified which computer is not working.

Answer:Computer goes to sleep, but can't wake up.

Are we talking about the "main computer" in which you installed the SSD? If so, was there another HDD in that system? When installing the SSD, assuming that it's the primary drive, did you reformat and reinstall the OS?

recently my pc running winblows xp started putting itself to sleep, its not suppose to, i never set it to do that, i looked at the power management settings and they havent been altered, they are set to never do this to me, yet it is doing it. when it happens, i cant get it to do anything, i cant wake it up, the mouse and keyboard both fail to respond and i have to turn the pc off and back on. the only thing i did before this stuff started happening to me is an update on spybot search and destroy, i emailed the makers of that program and they claim that s&d wouldnt cause this(but under the circumstances i have to be skeptical) what is doing this to me? how can i stop this? its annoying the crap outa me

Answer:why does my pc now go to sleep? wont wake up

Do a system restore to before you updated Spybot. That update shouldn't have affected it at all. Worse case scenario, go into power management and create a custom scheme and use that.
