Yoga 3 won't turn on from sleep

Q: Yoga 3 won't turn on from sleep

I've had the problem where the Yoga 3 won't turn back on. Fully charged, power cable in and out, even tried the hold down the power button for 10, 20, 30 and 60 seconds. Disconnected the battery, ran off power cord and ran every virus/system check. Put everything back together and everything works fine.... for a day or so, then same problem. Thoughts? Is this a function of coming back from sleep, i.e. can I work around this by never letting it go to sleep? Would replacing the battery fix the issue (and if so which battery should I get?) Sean

Hi everyone, when I wake my Yoga 900 from sleep mode, it takes around 6 seconds for the screen to turn back on. That's reasonable. My girlfriend's Yoga 900 however takes only 2 seconds, we bought them around the same time, same system etc. Also, since yesterday, when the screen goes black after the set time (e.g. 5 min) and I touch the touchpad or press any key it also takes around 7 seconds before the screen goes back on which is way too long since before it reacted alost instantaneously. What might be the issue? Could both things be connected somehow? Thanks for any help!

I recently noticed that my Yoga 3 Pro 1370 is not turning off the fan or the keyboard light when it times out and goes into auto-sleep. However, the physical power button on the side, which is set to enable sleep, works properly. BIOS, Lenovo and Windows updates are all up todate. Any advice appreciated, txs!

Hello,My laptop doesn't turn back on after it goes to sleep. When I close the lid of it and after the screens go black, I press the power button and the lights on the power button light up as the laptop would be on, but the screen remains black. To get it to turn on with the screen, I have to shut it down and turn it back on. It is very annoying and I would like to get some help. The laptop runs Windows 10 Home. 8 GB ram, the i7 Intel processor. The laptop still has 200 days of warranty.Please help.

Hello, we got 2x Try-and-Buy Lenovo Yoga Tablet Laptops (an X1 Yoga and a Yoga 260) to evaluate their suitability for our company, since we intend to upgrade several of our employees laptops. However, ever since we got the devices we noticed on both of them frequent issues with the display and waking from sleep. Very often the laptops won't wake up properly with the screen staying black. In those cases the display-backlight seems to turn on, and I assume the system is running somehow in the background. Putting the computer to sleep again (e.g. by closing the lid) makes the computer wake up properly on the second attempt. Different error in the same category is when a video is running and the laptop is connected to AC - plugging out the AC cord made the screen go black while the media content's sound kept playing. All drivers were updated to the newest version via Lenovo System Update 5.07.0029. Any ideas? I also tried to open a support ticket, but Lenovo wanted to send and install a new display (!). Apparently, that seems like a driver/software issue?! Best regards

Hey I just got a brand new Dell Inspiron with Windows 8. I have the settings set to sleep when closing the lid of the laptop, but the computer seems to always turn off. When I open the lid, my computer is completely off and I have to press the power button to turn it back on and wait for windows to reload.

This is not a battery problem as it happens even when plugged in.
I have also tried using the command prompt "powercfg /hibernate on" but it hasn't fixed anything.

How can I fix this problem? This is probably one of the most frustrating thing to happen.

My sister's computer currently won't turn on at all and has been struggling with it all day.
She has a Dell Studio 1555 laptop and put it to sleep last night and when she went to use it the next afternoon, it wouldn't turn on at all. I suggested to her to take out the battery and unplug the charger, wait, and put them back in later to try again and this did not work.
She also said that it didn't feel warm to the touch.
If there's any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much in advance.

A:Put computer to sleep and now it won't turn on!

A faulty battery can sometimes cause odd power-up problems even when connected to the mains.
Try removing the battery and leave it removed.
Plug in the power adapter and switch on at wall socket.
Try starting the laptop now.

if it works without battery, the battery has died and needs replacing.

The USB ports are active since my phone and an external HDD are plugged in them.The keyboard doesn't respond or enlight itself anymore. Despite all my tryings, I get no sound from the speakers... So I hope I will be able to reboot it and find a suitable solution (BIOS, driver update ?).The Yoga is new (one week old) and I'm yet already struggling to bring it back to life !!!!! Question :Is there any way to manually shut down the computer (the power switch for 60 sec doesn't work, the battery can't be taken out, no reset pin hole...) ? LENOVO, please HELP !!!!!I was so happy of this computer, don't let yous customer down. PS : As soon as the battery turns off, I'll try to save the PC and let you know how it goes.Sadly, I'm already considering to turn it back.

When it goes to sleep (lid closed or selecting sleep in Windows) it simply will not turn the screen back on. I'm on the latest BIOS (and tried the last one). 1709 and 1803. All the drivers from the Lenovo site or none of them (Windows Update drivers only), doesn't matter. No combination of anything I do to this machine will get it to turn the screen on when waking from sleep. I have to give my user a computer, and I'm at a total loss for what to do next - any ideas?

I've had this happen a few times and only when I least expect it.  I thought that perhaps it didn't like me disconnecting devices after shutdown but after several rounds of testing, I think the problem is closing the lid (which is set to sleep) but not always. Is anyone else finding that sometimes when the computer should sleep that it's shut down completely, without hibernating, thus resulting in a cold boot the next time it's started up? Each time it's happened, I've found the following event in the event log at the same time that I expected the computer to sleep, so I know that it's not a case of an attempt at hibernation that failed. Log Name:      SystemSource:        EventLogDate:          5/22/2017 5:11:59 PMEvent ID:      6008Task Category: NoneLevel:         ErrorKeywords:      ClassicUser:          N/AComputer:      FennelDescription:The previous system shutdown at 3:01:37 PM on ?5/?22/?2017 was unexpected.Event Xml:<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">  <System>    <Provider Name="EventLog" />    <EventID Qualifiers="32768">6008</EventID>    <Level>2</Level>...

Hi all, I've had a Yoga 13 for nearly a full year now with no problems until recently, when the laptop has constantly failed to enter sleep mode when the lid is closed. As a result, the laptop will continue to run in my bag until the battery drained. It is not a problem of rewaking when closed, as the screen will remain on with lid closure and the laptop never enters sleep mode. Is there a way to tell if this is being caused by a software problem (recent update to 8.1) or if the hardware involved in sensing a closed lid is now faulty? Steps already taken:Usng advice from a previous thread, I have uninstalled the Lenovo Energy Management software - this does not solve any conflicts with Window's own energy management.Power options shows that device is supposed to sleep on lid closure - changing settings to hibernate did not cause machine to hibernate on lid closure either.Powercfg shows no wake timers, -devicequery wake_armed shows "RTL8723A 4.0 + High Speed Chip." However, these should only be impacting the problem if it was waking from sleep - my device never enters sleep in the first place. Thanks for the help - hopefully I can fix this while hanging on to this fantastic laptop.

A:Yoga 13 does not sleep on lid closure

I know I'm digging up an old post and I'm not sure if you've figured it out. I also had this problem and I think I've 'fixed' it. When I was trying to diagnose the problem, I too tried to watch the screen closely as I closed the lid. I noticed that right before the magnets click together, I saw a notification appear on the screen. If you open the lid again fast enough, you might be able to see the message. The message I saw was a digalog box asking me if I wanted to enable tablet mode. This made me think that for some reason, the laptop thought I was actually folding the screen backwards (into tablet mode) when I was actually closing the lid. What I did was to fold the screen all the way back, waited for the computer to show the dialog box, I chose an answer (I think I chose 'Always ask'), and then folded it back into regular laptop mode. I closed the lid, the screen turned off, and the computer went into sleep mode (the setting I chose in Power Options). Hope this helps.

Hi everyone,  I bought a Yoga 920 about a month ago, and in the last week or so have had an issue with the computer's sleep function. Essentially, when I put the computer to sleep (either by shutting the lid or clicking using the mouse or pressing the power button), after a few minutes, it will not wake like you would expect it to do so under regular operation. The only way to awaken the laptop is to hold the power button and do a hard reset. This has caused me to have to do a hard reset multiple times a day.  The issue appears to be similar to this: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/ll06_en/thread-id/34896  Has anyone had a similar problem?

Yoga 900 will not wake from sleep. The power button on the laptop is blinking, indicating the laptop is in sleep mode. Pressing the power key has no effect. Pressing power key for a few seconds (hoping for a hard reboot) also has no effect. Must remove battery to reboot the computer. This is an intermittent problem. The problem occurs randomly. I have not been able to establish any pattern related to how sleep was initiated (e.g. was sleep initiated by: closing the lid, clicking on sleep in the Windows GUI, pressing the power button). The problem has occured 5 times but it is a major hassell when it occurs.

Hi there, I'm not sure if this topic's been brought up since I couldn't find it. But I recently purchased the Yoga 920, and everything works fine except that the laptop goes to sleep after some time on it's own. I've changed the power settings for both screen lid down as well as the "put computer to sleep" to "nothing" and "never" respectively and it still happens. Even in my advanced power settings, there's only a very limited power menu. Also possibly related, there's only a "balanced" power plan, no battery saver or high performance. Regardless, it's driving me insane and any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I just spent the last 30 minutes searching for this issue and can't seem to find anyone else who is having this problem.  The issue I'm having is that whenever I flip the lid to go into tablet mode, the machine seems to go into sleep or hibernate.  It doesn't do it 100% of the time, but it will always do it when I really need to go into OneNote to take some quick notes but instead waste time having to flip it around again, log in, and flip back into tablet mode a second time.  Occasionally, it will shut down completely instead of going to sleep, or resume but with a blank screen, forcing me to manually power it off by holding the power button, but these occurances aren't nearly as frequent as it going into sleep.  Another thing I noted is that when it resumes from the sleep mode it goes into, sometimes the Lenovo Battery Guage will show up with a red X, as though a battery isn't detected.  I find it odd because the machine functions just fine on battery.  If I plug in the AC power in this state, it will recognize the AC power as plugged in, but the battery gauge's status of "no battery" does not change.  If I open the battery app, it properly detects the battery and its charge level.   Things I have done to attempt resolution:* Disable all sleep/hibernate mode options in Windows Power Manager* Checked all applicable settings in the Lenovo Settings app* Ensure system was up to date with all Windows Updates, as well as...

A:X1 Yoga going to sleep after flipping lid

I guess I've come up with a diagnosis and a partial solution.   The problem apparently was the computer constantly failing to see the battery installed.  It would randomly detect the battery as not being installed, even when I was on battery and the machine stayed on just fine.  The battery has been functioning perfectly in the sense that I could operate off of AC power without issue, but the Power Gauge would show no battery being detected, then eventually it would come back and be fine, showing the proper charge level.   The reason the machine kept "turning off", or in this case Hibernating, was because Windows is set to either go to Sleep or Hiberate when it reaches the "Critical battery action" percentage in the Power Manager.  Because the battery would no longer be detected, the "Critical battery action" would kick in because it would think the battery is completely out of juice.  Unfortunately, Windows does not allow you to set this action to "Do nothing", offering only the options of "Sleep" or "Hibernate".   The partial solution:I followed a procedure I found for another model.  It involved the following steps: 1) Go into the BIOS2) Disable the battery3) Shut down machine and disconnect the battery4) Plug in AC power and boot into the OS5) Shut down the machine, disconnect AC, and press the power button 10 times6) Reconnect the battery and AC and boot into Windows So far, after doing that proce...

I had posted about this near the start of 2016 and then a BIOS update was released to fix the issue. The Yoga 900 wakes up from sleep when picked up and rotated. Previously, the issue was with the screen hitting the buttons and waking the laptop up. Now, I think it might have to do with rotating it when it is asleep. I do not have this problem if I rotate the laptop as it is going to sleep, only if I pick it up after it has gone to sleep. I have been having this issue since the last BIOS update was released.

Just got a brand new Yoga 710 w/ Win 10 Pro and the system just shuts down when put to sleep.Happens when:- I close the lid (even if "close lid" power option is set to sleep), or- I select the "Sleep" option from the Start [equivalent] menu, the system immediately shuts down (within seconds),- Leave the system idle for 5 min (what sleep timeout is set) And since it shuts down:- I lose any open document, applications running, etc. Also, on restart, Windows occasionally will also complain that it wasn't shutdown properly, starts to scan disk, etc. This is really BAD!- Pressing the mouse or keyboard doesn't do anything and only pressing the power button will get it working again (and I see the Lenovo BIOS logo, etc.).It feels like the OS is trying to go to sleep, but the laptop is shutting down instead. I tried calling Lenovo customer service but the response was really really unacceptable:- First tried to disable sleep completely and saying that that since this is a new machine so that should be okay.- I asked what about battery life if I don't use the laptop (say overnight) for a while -- response was I should shutdown the laptop. I checked the power option, tried disabling hibernate, disable fast boot, etc. and other suggestions from searching the forum but nothing worked.   Also checked BIOS settings but there's not much that can be changed (which is rather surprising).Drivers are BIOS are up-to-date. Any other ideas?  Any one else seeing this i...

I have been on the phone with Tech support nonstop over the issue of my 1 month old Yoga 710 constantly going into Sleep mode and blanking out in the middle of doing work or conducting a presentation. I want to get rid of this POS in the worst way possible. Last fix the Lenovo tech took control of my machine and updated the video driver, well that didnt fix it. looks like my only recourse is to beg Best Buy to let me exchange it for a Dell

A large number of people have the same problem I have with the sleeping laptop that goes comatose (won't respond) and won't shut down properly.  I have installed the software driver update and have seen little improvement.  I have had this problem for months and have no doubt its shortening the product lifespan. Has HP come out with any updates to resolve?  If the problem cannot be resolved, there needs to be some type of product exchange program implemented or a refund issued.  I have had the HP Support Team work on my computer 3 times and a local computer company, with no success.  Please resolve.

Description:
When I close the lid or put the PC to sleep, the screen will turn off, fans will continue to blow, led lights are on and PC gets unresponsive to mouse, keyboard and power button, so the only option I have in order to use my PC is to long-press the power button tu cut the power off. It's a common trouble with no clear answer. Sometimes, just sometimes it gets to sleep if I try when I just turn the PC on and logged in, after a few minutes or tasks it's impossible to sleep the computer.

I've tried:
FormattingUpdating drivers (with the manufacturer drivers, and after the format with Driver Booster 2 with no luck in non of those cases)Disabling windows media shareDisabling hibernate modeMany many changes in power optionsGetting RAM and SSD out and back on (deperation)Updating Windows

Background:
Problem started after I bought a SSD and install windows on it.

Specs:
Acer Aspire V5-561G (replaced the original 1TB HDD for a SSD Samsung 850 EVO 500GB)Intel i7-4500U8GB RAM DDRL3AMD Radeon R7 M265 2GB dedicated VRAM

CLUE!!!:
If i run powercfg it says that sleep mode S3, Hybrid, Fast boot and Hibernate is available, but S2 and S3 are not available because "the firmware of the system doesn't allow it" (translated from spanish).
Now, using dumppo on cmd as administrator:
Code:
dumppo admin


it says:
Code:
Min sleep state......:S1


So, as I read on a website, if that happened (having the min sleep state as S1) that might be the problem, so I cha... Read more

Is there any way at all to have the notebook power down the USB ports on sleep? I have a Toshiba Satellite where this is a BIOS option, but the Pavillion BIOS is very sparse when it comes to user configuration and there is no such option.  I often connect a vavriety of peripherals via USB (logic analyzer, chip programmers etc.) and have to disconnect them if leaving the laptop on sleep. Prefer not to use hibernate either,

Is there a setting some where that will keep the monitor from turning on when WMC scheduled recordings record while the computer is in sleep mode?

Right now if the machine is asleep and a scheduled recording starts, the monitor turns on. It doesn't show WMC, it shows what ever was on the screen when I put it to sleep.

I realize that I could turn off the monitor, but it just seems like there should be a better fix than that.

Thanks

A:Does monitor have to turn on if recording w/WMC from sleep

Thank you for all the views.

In Control Panel, Power Options, you can choose to not require a password in the sleep mode. Despite setting it this way, it keeps requiring a password. Bug?

A:Sleep password protection won't turn off!

Can you get to it in Advanced Power settings? It may be grayed out in there, but clicking on it offers a way to unlock it.

Password Protection on Wakeup - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

That image is slid down a little, the setting will be up at the top, right under "Change Settings that are currently unavailable" Click on the "Change" link and it should unlock the "Turn Off Password" to wake thing.
