Latest X1 tablet BIOS update breaks tablet sleep

Q: Latest X1 tablet BIOS update breaks tablet sleep

The latest bios update of X1 Tablet (Model:20GG) breaks the sleep (or hibernation) function. I found the tablet sometimes cannot be waken up by pressing the power button after entering connected standby. The version of the flawed BIOS is1.68-1.21 (N1LUJ30W) After rolling the embedded controller version back to 1.20 (N1LUJ29W), the problem no longer exists.

Preferred Solution: Latest X1 tablet BIOS update breaks tablet sleep

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

please help me ....


If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

I'm looking for a latest driver for my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet, which I bought back in 2007.

What I need is a link to the latest driver, and step-by-step instructions on how to safely install the new driver. Do I have to uninstall the old software and tablet then install the new driver first? etc, etc.

I'm using a Dell Venue 11 Pro (x86 Windows 8.1 tablet with Atom CPU) and it often becomes unusable after waking from sleep. I'm able to navigate around the Metro/Start screen no problem, but apps won't open. It shows the animation of me clicking on them, but nothing ever comes up. In desktop mode, I can't even get the task manager to come up, or close any open windows or anything. I can see the animation of the x button moving when I click it, but nothing happens

Anyone seen this happen before on other tablets? I haven't used Windows as my daily driver in almost a decade, so what would really help me out is if you guys could suggest some tools that might help me diagnose what's going on.

It's like a service that is required to open programs isn't running anymore or something. It doesn't feel slow or laggy, it just won't open anything. Been meaning to leave taskman running so I can see if it's something maxing the CPU, but I really don't think that's going to be it.....

Thanks for any help!

I use a Lenovo Miix tablet as a "kiosk". The tablet hangs on a wall, and never goes to sleep - but it turns off the screen after 1 minute inactivity. Touching the screen should light it up immediately.

All this worked wonderfully with Windows 8.1. After the move to Win10, touching the black screen does not light it up. It seems that Win10 puts the tablet to sleep, although the power options are clearly set to "Sleep: NEVER".

I wonder whether others have experienced this buggy behavior, which is inconsistent with previous Windows versions, and whether there is a workaround.

many thanks in advance

A:tablet going to sleep instead of turning off screen

The power toggle options seem to have a bug, nice how this made it into final build, huh? I already noticed this before on insider build and reported it about a two months ago. Another version of this bug is, that for example if you set monitor off to never and sleep to x minutes, the tablet stays on forever, and never goes to sleep.

Welcome in Windows as a (never-ending) beta.

Hey all, I recently bought a Samsung ATIV 500T Tablet PC. I got it all updated via Windows Update (the only updates in the list now are Silverlight-related).

Recently, I noticed that if I close the lid (third-party that uses the built-in Samsung magnet) without having shut the screen off before, the system tends to hang about 9/10 times. The only way to recover from this appears to be to hold the Power button until it shuts off and then restart the system.

I have let it go a couple of times and the next time I boot, it tells me that there was a dump created. I have attached the diagnostic tool zip. I have tried disabling the wireless device through the OS but not through Device Manager but the issue still occurs. Any ideas?

Dear Lenovo-Community,my Thinkpad S1 Yoga change into tablet modus not only when I fold back the monitor but also when I have closed the lid normaly and than reopened it or sometimes by slightly moving the monitor or a minor percussion of the table. That is very annoying, because than I have no access to keyboard or touchpad while beeing in the laptop-shape. I can revive keyboard/touchpad by folding back the monitor and than back to the normal laptop shape, but this works only one time! After that I have to send the thinkpad in the energy saving mode and wake it up, to get keyboard/touchpad back.I think it is a problem with the sensor, but does there a software setting exist so keyboard/touchpad keep unlocked in tablet-modus? Or a way to switch off the tablet-modus completely? I can live without the tablet-modus and the thinkpad is probably too old to be worth a great repair.My system is fully updated. Any idea out there?

Hi There,

My setup: I have a windows 8.1 with Bing tablet. I am hoping to install these into taxi's and utilize for advertising. The charger will be connected to the ignition (will be on charge) and will hopefully go into sleep mode when ignition is off (ie:
no charge). Then when car starts the unit will boot up again (being on charge again).

I am therefore trying to make the tablet sleep after ignition is turned off (unfortunately there isn't an auto power ON function in the bios otherwise i would set that). So my plan is to try and make the tablet sleep (when car turns off) and then
wake up when the car starts (i.e: starts charging).

Q1: I know about the power settings but feeling very limited with them. I cant seem to send the tablet into sleep mode when i have a video running (and after the car has turned off)- If video isnt playing then the tablet will sleep. Is there anything
i am doing wrong, can i force the tablet to sleep no matter what apps/windows are open?

Q2: When power is restored, how can i get the tablet to boot up and open/continue playing the video?

Q3: If i use sleep mode i cant put the tablet into sleep when a video is playing (If i can execute this then i can use a task schedule to start up tablet from sleep

Any ideas or additional software platforms would be appreciated.

Sorry if this has been asked and answered before.  I'm a new owner of an X1 Yoga 3rd Gen.  Simple question: how do you revive it from sleep in tent/tablet mode?  In those modes the keyboard is deactivated.  When the screen turns off after inactivity the only way I can get it back on again is by folding the computer back into laptop mode.  Touching the screen, the touchpad, or pressing the power button does nothing. I've looked for an answer online, and it seems like there might not be another way to revive the laptop other than that, which seems silly.  Is the only workaround to install an app that prevents the screen from turning off?

Hi all, I've noticed that my Yoga 910 is not auto rotatingwhen I set it to tent mode nor to tablet mode. Not only it doesn't auto rotate but it also keep the keyboard active... Not sure if this is a faulty sensor problem or just some bug. I've tried to follow the solutions presented in other topics but without success even tried a system restore but the problem is still here. I can't really identify which update has created this situtation but I know that when a couple of months ago it was still working. I also have the impression that more are affected, so could Lenovo release a patch to troubleshoot and solve such an important issue for a Yoga product (basically there is no Yoga functionality with this problem). Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Many Thanks!

A:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.
