Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro won't wake up from sleep / hibernation, keyboard just blinking

Q: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro won't wake up from sleep / hibernation, keyboard just blinking

My Yoga 3 Pro won't wake up from sleep / hibernation, the only sign of activity is the keyboard lights just blinking, AGAIN! :-(. This is a common problem with Yoga 2 13 models I have learnt, not only from various boards, but also my self, when I returned a yoga 2 13 after 5 days, and got the Yoga 3 Pro model. The laptop is now only 6 months old. I experienced the same wake up problems 3 weeks ago with my 3 Pro, and the shop here in Copenhagen sent it back to service. When I got it back 4 days ago, the service team had just changed "Cinch Audio" and updated the BIOS. It seems like they never really fixed the real problem. Two days ago the computer again had problems to wake up, and now it seems to be frozen in this blinking mode. I I have tried hard reboot (holding the power button for ca 20 secs), but it won't solve the problem. Has anyone experienced the same problem, and any durable solutions to it? If it stays like this, I'll hand it in, try to get it reimbursed and I will gladly buy another computer, but not from Lenovo anymore.

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.)

My Yoga 920 is around 6 months old and this issue started about 1-2 months ago. Every time the laptop goes to sleep it won't wake up. The only way to get it awake is to force restart it by holding down the power button. The trackpad won't wake it up, the keyboard won't an extrenal mouse won't, nothing will. The BIOS is updated and I have no other updates that deal with power (as far as I can tell) left to download. I have no idea what to do. This issue is very annoying as I have to restart everything any time I put my computer to sleep.

I have to manually shut down my machine each time I try to wake it up after putting it in sleep or hibernation mode for an extended period of time. This just started happening a few weeks ago.   I did some Google searching and saw where some said it was due to my video driver needing to be rolled-back.   This is the driver I currently have installed, FYI.  Any ideas?

I live in a place where we have power shortages from time to time. I have my Dell desktop pc attached to a UPS and i have configured the pc to go to sleep after 5 minutes when on UPS. Is there anyway to wake up the pc automatically once the power is on? I have connected my UPS with USB cable to the pc, and the pc treats the UPS as a battery. I use this pc as a media centre so this feature is something i really need.
I am on Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thanks!

A:Wake the PC from sleep/hibernation when power comes up

With it being a Dell the option may very well be hidden (with no way to unhide it), but have a look in the bios under the Power options for anything relating to "restore on power loss". If it is there it is likely set to disabled (the default on most if not all motherboards), set it to enabled and that should do it.

Pleas help, BSOD happens when opening the lid of laptop.

A:BSOD when wake up from hibernation/sleep

0x116 bugchecks indicate an attempt to reset the graphics card and display driver failed to respond within the allocated time interval.
It's mainly caused by a failing GPU or bad display driver.

I suggest updating your display driver to the latest version.
If you are unsure how then here's some instructions.

I also recommend running Furmark to see if your GPU is failing (I doubt it but it's worth ruling it out as a possibility).

If I were to let my computer go into sleep mode, if I let it go alll the way into it, I cant wake it up without having to turn it off and back on and having to log back in, not to mention losing open browser windows/tabs, and any other work.
Same with Hibernation, except, I cant stop that....
The simple answer would be to set it to not go into sleep or hibernation, but thats not a solution, just a temporary remedy.

Does anybody know some possible causes or other reasons?
or at least how to fix it?
I know Im clueless.
Edit:
Some extra details.
When I try to wake it from hibernation, my laptops lights will go on. All but the screen, and I know its not a monitor problem. Same thing with sleep mode, The lights will stop blinking, and be on, but the screens just blank.

A:Computer doesnt wake up from Sleep/Hibernation

Hello ComputerTalk-Jayson,Hybrid mode is to have the computer go to sleep first, then after the time you set will go into hibernation. That is why it is taking a bit longer since your computer is resuming from hibernation and not sleep.For you what you want, you would need to set your Power Plan settings to "Sleep" and turn off "Hybrid" and "Hibernate" like in the recommended "Sleep" settings in the tutorial below. Afterwards, the computer should wake up from sleep and be ready to go in a second or two.Power Plan Settings ChangeHope this helps,Max

Hi there,

I am running a Windows 7 64-bit setup, and I'm trying to get a timer to wake Windows from sleep or hibernation.

I've got it to work flawlessly on my desktop, however on my laptop, a Dell D630, I can't seem to get it to work. I've created a task triggering on a specific time and running the operation '/c "exit"', which should just start a command prompt and close it again. I've set it to "run with highest privileges" and "wake the computer to run this task". However, it just doesn't boot as scheduled.

The history of the scheduler says nothing at the moment that the trigger is set to go off, but a minut later (probably when I manually boot) I get a "Task scheduler "{....}" instance of the task "\Wakeup" due to a time trigger condition."

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you.

A:Scheduler fails while trying to wake Windows from sleep/hibernation.

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums.

Some things you can try for testing:

Turn off "run with highest privileges" - you shouldn't need it for this task

Try different setting combinations for:
"Run whether user is logged on or not" / "Run only when user is logged on"
"Start the task only if the computer is an AC power"
"Stop if the computer switches to battery power"

Compare each page in the Task settings between the Desktop and Laptop.
See if you can find some different setting(s) that might cause this.

If you logon with a Standard account when the computer sleeps, try using an Admin account.

Hope this helps,
David

This happens 95% of the time. sometimes it DOES work though. anyway, I looked through all the internet...or just about..and cannot find anyone who has found a cure yet. these are the symptoms.

When you go to sleep, or hibernate, when you try to wake it up, it gets stuck on a black screen for about 8 min. then restarts.

if you press shut down, it says "shutting down" and stays there 8 min. then restarts.

i have not been able to find a cure..please help.

also, i uninstalled all the windows updates from the past only leaving one. i unintsalled because i thoguht it might fix the problem and i would just search for updates so that i could get rid of the extra updates and only get the most recent updates. but now, i have no updates and when i press search for updates, nothing comes up. can anyone teach me how to reset so that any updates that apply will reappear? because i believe there are updates that apply, but since i uninstalled it, it is not going to show up on my updates list again. please help. thanks

My computer is to be having some problems booting when it has been asleep/hibernating/turned off. At first it seemed to be just when it had been asleep or hibernating, but recently it wont boot after being turned off for a short while (an hour or so).

What happens, is that after turning it on, I get a "No signal" message on my monitor, and nothing shows up on it. The computer turns on, it makes the usual noises, but no signal comes through to the monitor.

The only way I can seem to get it started after this is if I leave it unplugged for a while, usually at least an hour and a half or so, then it will either boot from scratch or resume Windows from sleep/hibernation.

I never have the problem turning it on at the beginning of the day when it's been off all night, so it's as if it needs to be off for a long while for some reason.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on an AMD A10-5800K and Gigabyte F2A85X-D3H, with 8GB RAM.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

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.

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.

After a clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary edition, I had an issue with my Thinkpad Yoga not resuming from sleep, requiring a hard reboot every time. I made sure to perform the updates in the support article ThinkPad Yoga cannot wake up from sleep mode but those didn't help. The ultimate solution was to downgrade the Intel Management Engine Interface driver to the 9.x version from Lenovo's site. The default Windows 10 installation installed version 11.x of that driver, which apparently causes this issue with failing to resume. (Note that the Lenovo System Update tool does not identify this as a needed update since the Lenovo driver version is older, so you have to download and apply the older driver manually.) After doing this, the system now sleeps and resumes perfectly. Hopefully this can help someone else, and maybe the above support article could be updated to include this advice too.

Hi everybody. This is just a public service message regarding an issue I've encountered. I've found that my Yoga 900 does not "wake up" after it has gone to sleep while connected to an external monitor. I'm connected to an HP 27VX monitor through a USB Type C to HDMI adapter. I found that my Yoga wakes up without issue if the display has turned off (power options turn off display settings) but it doesn't wake up if it goes to sleep when connected to the monitor. The issue though is not that it doesn't wake up, the issue is that for some reason when connected to the monitor it never truly goes to sleep (slow blinking white light). I think it gets hung up somehow when trying to go to sleep. When it enters this mode the power light is solid white and the only fix is to power cycle the Yoga. I'm not sure why it won't successfully go to sleep when connected to a monitor but my guess is some type of driver/hardware issue between the USB type C, HDMI adapter, and the monitor. I've verified that all works as intened when I'm not connected to the monitor. My workaround is to go to power options and turn my sleep option (when plugged in) to "Never". Not a solution by any means, just a workaround until all players involved (Lenovo, HP) figure out how to work with the new USB Type C port. Hope this helps. Rob

I bought a new Thinkpad Yoga 14 (20DM/Broadwell). Gorgeous machine, but it refuses to wake from sleep on a keypress or click on the trackpad. It will wake up if I close and re-open it. I updated all of the drivers and the bios using Lenovo's utilities and Windows System Update. When that didn't work, I tried updating the Intel Integrated graphics drivers and GeForce drivers with the latest packages from Intel and NVIDIA, downgraded the Intel Management Engine to version 10, and disabled hybrid sleep. No dice. So I resorted to a clean re-install of Windows 10 from a USB key and updated all of the Lenovo drivers (again) using ThinkVantage System Update. "Allow this device to wake the computer" was and is checked in the Device Manager for both the keyboard and trackpad. Is there anything I can do to get it working? Only a couple days left to figure this out before my return period ends.

Hi everyone,  My manager seems to be having an issue with his ThinkPad S1 Yoga ever since he upgraded to Windows 10 back in July. He's now running the TH2 update that was released last month and he is still having issues with Sleeping and Waking the Notebook.  When shutting down the computer it will not fully shut down, resulting in the battery draining and the little red light on the lid will blink very quickly - The only fix is to hard reset the PC by holding the power button.   When the Notebook is on battery power and goes to sleep for being idle - it cannot be woken up and the only way to get the PC to work again is to hard reset again - meaning he loses all his work.  Is there a permanent fix in the pipeline or is this a case of restoring back to Windows 8.1?  ThanksChris   

A:S1 Yoga: Windows 10 - Sleep/Wake Problems

Hi Chris-R
 
Can you please post your the full model number of the Yoga?
 
I have a TP Yoga 14 and it took me some time to stabilize the drivers. Maybe you should try to re-install the Lenovo Power related drivers to see if it can fix your problem.
 
I also like to have the drivers updated, I can share with your the following tips:
 
1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches
2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.
3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"
4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers.
 
I hope this helps you or gives you a hint.
 
Regards

Hi, I recently purchased a Thinkpad X1 Yoga, shipped on May 16, 2016.  I have an issue:     When I use the left side USB port (the one on the side of the power charging port) to charge my old Ipod and the laptop goes to sleep. The laptop does not wake up when opening the lid or pressing on the power button. However, as soon as I disconnect my Ipod from the USB port. The laptop immediately wakes up but unable to login using the fingerprint reader. Specific steps to reproduce: 1) Plug x1 yoga power cord to the laptop 2) Plug Ipod to the left side USB port. Make sure Ipod has no earphones plugged in. 3) Put the laptop in sleep mode 4) Close the lid of the laptop 5) Wait until iPod is no longer being charged by the laptop (a few seconds after the laptop goes to sleep) 6) Wait until iPod automically turns off on its own (it takes 15 to 30 mins, not sure exactly how much time.) 7) Open the laptop lid and notice that the laptop is not waking up. 8) Press on the "power" button on the right side of the X1 Yoga. Notice that the laptop does not wake up. 9) Remove the iPod from the USB port on the left side of the X1 Yoga.        Notice that the laptop is now able to wake up.        Also notice that the finger print reader is not responding. Cannot login using the fingerprint reader. Seems like a driver issue. Lenovo please confirm! ThanksWilly

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

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

Also did you check the USB root hub in device manager right click it select power management Tab and uncheck this " Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power ". I found sometimes in Power management settings doesn't always work.

Hello members,

I was wondering how to wake my laptop from sleep using my Bluetooth Logitech K810 keyboard.
Currently, through Device Manager, I do have "Allow this device to wake computer" checked through Power Management for both the keyboard itself and HID Keyboard Device.

What's odd is that I also have my Logitech MX Performance connected via 2.4Ghz and I have the "Allow this device to wake computer" unchecked, but only my mouse wakes my laptop from sleep.

So overall, I disabled my mouse from waking up my laptop and I have enabled my keyboard to wake my laptop from sleep. But the opposite occurs.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

A:How do I Wake PC from Sleep using Keyboard

You wouldn't be able to have the Bluetooth keyboard wake the system because Windows needs to be running in order for the keyboard to work. Windows is what makes the connection using Bluetooth. So, if it is in Sleep, it wouldn't be able to wake it. The mouse has its own connection to the mouse without the need of software so it is like it is physically connected and therefor it would be able to wake it.

I hope this makes sense

-Ben

Hello, i want to wake up my Lenovo B50-10 from sleep with a USB mouse or keyboard. With win 10 this will NOT work. In Systemsteuerung there is not allowed to set the "Gerät kann den Computer aus dem Ruhezustand aktivieren".?Computer wakes up when i touch the powerbutton or any key on the internal keyboard, but never, wenn ich touch a key on USB keyboard. Funny: When i run UBUNTU, there ist no problem to wake up the computer via USB keyboard or mouse. How can i fix it, to wake up with win 10 too?

Hello and welcome,
 
I'm sure you've already tried this, so forgive me for asking.  Does that option become available if you remove the tick from the "...Energie zu sparen" check box?

I am still fighting with "260 will not wake up from sleep problem" described in my post: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/ThinkPad-Yoga-260-cannot-wake-up-from-s... I tried everything, fresh restore (5 times), boot from linux live, the laptop can't manage correct sleep, hybernation and even a simple shutdown. I can only switch on and off by pressing power button for more than 10 seconds. I tried to update the bios (from the lenovo website or from a bootable ISO) but it does just half of the job, when it tries to restart do finalize the process it goes again in a frozen state and can only restart by pressing power button for long time. Ok my laptop is out of warranty, but this has been clearly caused by a lenovo update, before that the lapotp was performing perfectly. There are several people with thinkpad reporting the same problem, lot of them with my same 260. The last one IDENTICAL problem 4 days ago: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Yoga-260-Does-not-wake-up/m-p/3930549 This is unacceptable, I went to a lenovo assistance and they asked me 750euros to change the motherboard. WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER LENOVO. I would like to hear an opinion from a Lenovo operator reading this forum, if any.

I have an X1 Yoga with a OneLink+ Dock. When the system goes to sleep, it won't wake. I have to hold the power button for 10 seconds to completely power off the X1, then restart it. I never have an issue when the OneLink+ is not connected. I updated the OneLink+'s firmware and all the drivers on the X1, but the problem remains. Anyone know how to fix this issue?

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!

Hi, I'm new to the forums and I need help waking my laptop with my in-built touch pad and keyboard. To do so I need to enable a setting on my Touch Pad and Keyboard driver/device properties, which should be located underneath the 'Power Management' tab. However, there is no such tab. I have also tried to use the 'powercfg -deviceenablewake' command, with Admin rights, to no avail. Please help me! This is causing major headaches when I my laptop goes to sleep!
Note: I have recently installed Windows 10, as my old HDD 'failed', installed/updated all my drivers, disabled hibernation mode and am using all in-built components (ie: no USB keyboard/mouse).

A:Wake from Sleep with Touch Pad and Keyboard

You won't find driver properties there.

Right click start and select device manager, then go to your KB and Mouse items, right click and select properties, but I've looked at mine for my laptop, and there is no power management tab there.

Are you sure it may not be asking you to check a BIOS setting for power management to allow KB/mse to wake it?

By default KB /mse should wake it with no further action.

List your laptop make, model, screenshot of device manager with what's listed for KB and mse.

Hey all,

I've just installed a sexy new 512GB SSD in my machine as the main drive, and as a result, had to reinstall Windows.

After getting everything set up, I put the PC to sleep for the first time, and when I went to wake it a while later by hitting the space bar (something that's always worked in the past with everything the same except the new HD) nothing happened. I tried a few other keys with the same result, along with the mouse.

So I went into the device manager and checked things; 'allow this device to wake the computer' is enabled for both the keyboard and mouse, but when I check the usb root hubs, they've all got the option greyed out.
I checked in the UEFI (BIOS) and I can't find any option to change it there (and, like I mentioned, the only difference is the new HD, the BIOS settings weren't touched), and I'm about ready to lose my mind.
If it helps, I'm running an ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard.

Help??

Please?

Hello, I have received some brand new Elitebook 840 G3 and they refuse to be woken up from sleep by pressing a key on the keyboard - you have to press the power button. Having raised this with HP support they have said the hardward doesn't support this feature.This does seem a bit ridiculous considering we have far cheaper and older laptops which can do this. Does anyone know how to enable this or if this will be included in a BIOS update?We have tried every power management option in the BIOS we can find (there is no option for wake on keyboard) and there are no editable options in the power management tab in device management. Thanks

I have a Lenovo U31-70 on Windows 10.When I put my laptop to sleep, I am able to turn it back on. But sometimes the screen stays black and the keyboard lights are on. Even on full charge.The only way I am able to fix this is by putting the computer to sleep multiple times and then wake it up back again and after once or twice it starts to work or by forcing the system to shut down by pressing the power key.Sometimes, even after restarting, the screen doesn't turn on.  Please help!!Thanks in advance.

I spent several days trying to find out why my Lenovo B50-30 wouldn't resume from sleep. Eventually I fixed the problem by installing the old v2 BIOS (you have to change a BIOS setting to allow this) then reinstalling the latest BIOS and reverting to BIOS defaults. Tim

Brand new 710S out of the box with Windows 10 OEM installed 64bit.  Initial setup and Windows update all ran smoothly.  But a big problem appears when it goes to sleep... it won't wake up from sleep.   I have to power off and power on, sometimes twice to get it back.  I see this is  a common problem with other models but I'm opening this thread here to let community know it's also a problem with this new model too.
