Problem

When system goes to sleep longer than a hour and you wake it up the bottom third of the screen freezing.

The top 2/3's get split like window pane a when you scroll the top 2/s's will scroll but the bottom 1/3 will remain as it was before sleep...

Also the bottom third wont have any hover icon effects though icon will still work, the task work as intended...

If I restart the programs the will work fine but windows has to restart for icon hover effects to work....

Try updating your video driver and see if that helps.
Turn off screen saver if you use it.

Hello,

First of all - can anyone answer me on wich e-mail adress should I send all of my reports to Microsoft regarding Windows 7 problems that I encountered ?
Second, here is the problem wich was very annoying but I did solve it so my point is to warn Microsoft about this so they can fix it in future Windows update or Service Packs for Windows 7.
When you are using (for example I used "High Performance" Power Plan) and in advanced options of any of Power Plans you let option - "Hard disk - Turn off hard disk after" to be turned ON (for example if you make your hard disk turn off after 15 minutes) you will have some serious trouble.

This was happening:

In Windows Vista - all worked well. I would put my PC in sleep mode, get back for hour and just press power button on my PC and he went up pretty fast. That was great option and it was working just fine.

But in Windows 7, I found out trough days and days of testing that when I put my PC to "Sleep mode" if it's "Sleeping" more then 15 minutes - I just can't get it back to desktop from sleep!

I would press Power button, fans would start but then PC would just shut down and try to start itself again and again until i completely shut it down from power and re-started it again.
After some time I was very mystified by this problem and many of my colleagues and friends had similar or the same issue. One day we all discovered that if we set "Turn off hard disk" option to... Read more

Hello,I just upgraded to Windows 10 Enterprise with clean install.  I used to use Softpaq Download manager to patch my drivers on previous versions of Windows but now I see only subset of drivers for Windows 10. I tried to research forum whether somebody had issue like I am having but wasn't able to find it.  Issue is when I press Fn+F3, 8570w actually shuts itself down without going to sleep mode so I can come back quickly to work when I need.  BIOS is on latest version for this model, Windows is patched as well.

This is my third X1 (all different generations) and I was very happy up till now. The problematic one has a Skylake processor and 512GB SSD and it seemed like a really nice config.The problem is that it doesn't want to shutdown nor wake up from sleep.First symptom: when shutting down, the pc seems to have shut down, but is still draining battery. If the keyboard FN-lock button is lighted, you can notice that this stays on. Also the fan will stay on if it was running before. The keyboard is even still responsive and you can turn on and off the different LEDs.Second symptom: when the pc goes to sleep, there is no waking it up. Also here the keyboard stays responsive for fn-lock etc.I've tried many things: reinstall windows 10 from scratch, reset the bios, upgrade the bios.Then Lenovo was actually very helpful to start: they swapped out the motherboard and when that didn't work, shipped the pc to a repair center.From here it went downhil: the repair was done in less than 5 hours according to the ticket (so I was impressed) but when I got the pc back I noticed why: they didn't repair it. They put on an image of windows 7 and since there the problem was not visible, called it fixed. Very frustrating. I put back windows 10 and guess what: the problem was exactly the same. When they shipped the pc, they had created a new ticket in the system, closing the original one. Now they even closed the second ticket although I already commented that the pc still doesn't work as it is supposed... Read more

Hi there, I work in IT for 19 years now but I only have a limited experience with LENOVO ThinkCentre product's line. I just got (for free) an old ThinkCentre M72e (Type 4004) tiny desktop that were coming from the factory with Windows 8 Professional, then was downgraded from the factory to Windows 7 Professionnal (using Microsoft downgrade rights) because the company's software that they use where not compatible at this time with W8. Somewhere around 2015-16, the computer automatically upgraded to Windows 10 Profesionnal (during the free upgrade period), but the people uninstalled it back to W7 since the company's software was still incompatible with W10. End of the scenario. When receiving the M72e, I first replaced the factory HDD with a very fast SSD I already had, then I installed W10Pro using a generic USB thumb drive and everything went fine, the computer already had his digital licence, so this went perfectly smooth. Since this computer is not that much old, all drivers and peripherals installed automatically with Windows Update. Then, I ran the latest BIOS update available for this computer (F4KT61A - 24 Jul 2018) and update went good. So I thought that the computer was up and running and ready to be given (for free) to my mother in law who have a 12 years old computer that are still W7. So I left the M72e running on my desk during a day, then I noticed that when the computer goes to SLEEP mode, it never wake up. If I press any key to wake it up, t... Read more

I have two computers running Windows 8.1.  The one I'm on now would not go into sleep mode until I flashed the BIOS, updated the chipset and a couple other drivers and eventually uninstalled the ASUS AI Suite program.  The other computer quit going into sleep mode when I installed Windows 8.  Sleep mode was working in Windows 7 but I have to manually put the computer to sleep now.  There is nothing much installed on the other computer and BIOS and chipset drivers are current from ASUS.  I don't notice anything in Task Manager using CPU cycles and can't figure out why sleep mode is broken.  I'm not sure where to begin trouble shooting beyone what I've already done.  Any ideas would be appreciated.
 
 

A:Sleep Mode Issue

Sleep mode issues are very common.
First off, make sure all of your programs are closed.  This issue is a biggie with win 8 and 8.1, because the tiles keep the last 4 apps open. 
To check what is open in the tiles do the following
 
To close a tile or app while you are in it, (so you dont leave it open) save your work then press
ALT+F4 (some keyboard require you to use the FN+ALT+F4 or FN+F4)
The above will close the current app your on.
 
ALso you can view a list of the open apps by pressing keys
WIN+TAB
 
This will make a list of them on the left side go to think link to see this guide and a bunch of others for WIndows 8 and 8.1
 
If this is not the issue, and it usually is, because if the programs are open Windows will not sleep until they are all closed. 
 
If not then try these steps from Vonnie Hudson's guides on windows.
 

1. Check your Power Options
Let’s try the obvious stuff first.  It stands to reason that clicking Sleep should put the computer to sleep; however, those settings can change — let’s make sure they haven’t. Go to the Start Screen and type

power options
Press enter and your power plan should immediately show up. Go ahead and click the blue Change plan settings link immediately to the right of your power plan

The Edit Plan Settings box will pop onto the screen.  Click Change advanced power settings

The Power Options box shows up with a myriad of settings.

Hello,
I'm having a pretty annoying issue with sleep mode. I'm a decently savvy computer user to i might have changed a setting or two in my bios but i don't think its the issue. But anywho, My problem is that when i select sleep mode, everything powers down and then when my pc itself powers down, it just powers up without a hitch and returns me too my desktop. I dont really like shutting down my pc i use it a bit and the answer to this problem eludes me. I tried to change the "Allow wake timer" setting in power management to disable and in my bios, the ACPI suspend type is S3&S1 which is what it was when i installed windows. And too make it worse all the hardware im using is the same when on a previous installation of windows, sleep mode worked fine. I cant think of what it is and a handy google search didn't help me either.
I'm using a program that came with my mobo called asus ai suite. its a auto cpu overclock sort of program, and it has a "ai nap" program in it that basically puts the cpu in a sleep mode of its own but doesn't power down the rest of the pc. I don't think its the conflict (it didn't stop anything before.)

A:Sleep Mode Issue

Neither Sleep nor Hibernate were ever truly perfected by Microsoft. While either or both functions work flawlessly for many people, the either don't work at all or cause problems on some systems. Instead of sleep I always recommend just changing the power options so your hd and display will power down after a defined period of inactivity. Both you and your computer will be happier afterwards

Hi, Try disabling Windows 10 hybrid boot - you can do this as follows. Open Settings and select System.  Select Power and sleep, then click on Additional power settings - in the following window, click on 'Choose what the power button does' in the left hand pane. In the subsequent window, first click on 'Change settings that are currently unavailable' ( near the top of the Window ) and then remove the checkmark from the box against 'Turn on fast start-up (recommended)'.  Click the Save Settings button, then close any open windows and shutdown the notebook by right click the Start Menu icon, select Command Prompt (Admin) and click ?Yes? to the uac prompt. Type ( or copy and paste ) in the following command ( including spaces ) and hit enter. shutdown /s /t 0 Start the notebook and let Windows fully load for a couple of minutes before checking if it will now shutdown correctly from the Start Menu. If this has corrected the issue, it may be worth turning Fast Start-up back on ? sometimes just deleting and re-creating the file will resolve the problem. Regards, DP-K

Hello everybody, my first post here and I joined specifically because I need some help. This problem is concerning my computers sleep mode, when ever I put it too sleep or when it does it automatically, the computer will sleep for a couple seconds before waking itself up again. Once it wakes up I get 2 errors on the screen, I attached a screenshot of the error to this post, if you want to see it. This thing is very strange, since it only started happening recently (I can't tell if it started once I got the internet or when I got wireless keyboard/mouse, I got them both a couple weeks ago around the same time). I've checked all over the internet and I can't find anyone with a similar issue, I've even checked a thread here with a walkthough, which didn't help at all. Can someone please help me spot and fix this issue?

*sigh Yup, that is exactly what it is and before you think "search the forum" or "GOOOOGLE", I've tried. I have tried almost every possible solution to this problem and this problem is that every single time I put my computer into Sleep Mode, the PC will sleep for about ten seconds then awake to the log on screen.

These are the things I've tried without success:
Turning off "wake on this device" in Device Manager for EVERY thing
Turning off automatic updates
Turning off firewall (just to be sure)
Configuring my BIOS any and every way possible
Closing background programs before I enable sleep
turned off all my computer's extremities (stereo, hdd, monitor)
I even closed out of Windows Sidebar and all my gadgets
I may have forgot some different attempts as well. I was hoping someone here would have an idea that escaped my knowledge and frantic Google searches.

Hi all,

I just finished building my first computer yesterday. Everything seems to be working just great, except when I put my computer in sleep mode and try to wake it up.

Here is my issue: When I put my computer to sleep, it works fine. When I try to wake it up (by pressing power button or hitting key on keyboard), it powers on for a brief second and then shuts down. The only way to get it back on is by pressing the power button again, resetting the pc. I just want to know how to set it up so when i hit a key on my keyboard it will wake up with no issues. Side notes: I have disabled hybrid sleep mode and clicked the box to allow keyboard to wake computer.

When I put my (admittedly old) laptop into sleep mode (while plugged in) it will appear to work, but when I wake it up, the screen remains black. It is awake, but the backlight does not turn back on when the CPU does. I haven't seen information about this being a common issue with this computer (although there are other Sleep Mode issues with it). A full restart fixes this issue, for now.

The AMD Radeon video driver would not install properly recently, so I got around to manually installing it a few nights ago. Everything else is working properly, and the Windows Experience Index actually went up after installing the new driver (for whatever that's worth).

It is an HP Pavilion g6 2090ca; Intel Core i5 2450M processor; 6 GB DDR3 RAM; Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1.

Is this a known issue with Radeon cards, HP laptops from that generation, or just a sign that my computer is on its last legs?

I am constantly having an issue that is getting progressively worse. As my computer is coming out of sleep mode, instead of taking me to my log in screen (security), the screen just starts scrolling through various solid colors... black... red... blue... green... etc. I have to hit the power button, to put it back in sleep mode, watch while it struggles with this, then when the power button is flashing, I hit it again, to bring it back. Then, and only then, will it go to my log in where I enter my password.

I actually called Dell, but that was such a big headache and a waste of time. I have a 16 month old and I can't sit on the phone while they read through their books like I'm an idiot.

My name is Krishna and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. Allow me to sincerely apologize for any difficulties you may have encountered in attempting to resolve your concerns. Based on the above symptoms, It is more likely that you have a bad video card or corrupted video drivers.
Try downloading and installing the latest video drivers and see if it helps. Depending on your system model, you can find it on www.support.dell.com. Also, run the hardware diagnostics and check for errors. You can follow the instructions from http://dell.to/dU0fpw

I can go into setup and use keyboard just fine, but it's dead once boot is done.

This problem arose this morning.....normal bootup as usual.

I'm typing this via USB keyboard.

2) Sometimes this pc just will not come out of sleep mode unless I do a hard boot.
Right now, the power save settings are:

Turn off display: Never
Put computer to sleep: Never

I have a dual monitor system:

I left the room for 30 minutes and came back to find both monitor screens black.
(The screen saver should have been running.....it was not.)

I moved the mouse and the 2nd monitor came to life while the main monitor went to sleep.......followed by the 2nd monitor......I could still hear the fan running.....I had to hard boot to shut down.

Often, when in sleep mode, the keyboard is completely unresponsive.

It seemes to be happening more frequently but there isn't any particular activity that triggers it. It also happens when it's plugged in and when it's operating off the battery.

I'm running Vista/64 on a Dell desktop, and from the beginning have been using a castoff HP keyboard that I picked up at a church jumble sale. The HP keyboard has a Fn (function) key, and by pressing that key and F2, I can put the computer to sleep. This has been working just fine for several years now.

But now I've ordered a Microsoft 'curvy' keyboard, and note that it does NOT have a function key. So I tried putting the computer to sleep through the Start menu, but it won't work. I get a System Standby Failed notification, that the WSD (wireless?) Print Device is keeping the system from going to sleep. But this never come up using the old keyboard and its built-in Fn+F2 sleep command.

Evidently the HP keyboard is sending a different command to the system than using 'Sleep under Start.' Is there a way to duplicate this command somehow, or is its derivation hidden in the HP keyboard encoding?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hello, 
I need some assistance in diagnosing a problem with my PC. This morning, once I woke up, I noticed my computer's fans were running sporadically while in sleep mode. The fans were running at different speeds in a somewhat sporadic fashion, the computer felt somewhat warm. I could not pull my computer out of sleep mode and had to result in shutting the computer off via the power button. The computer booted up correctly and no issues are currently known. 
I have a dell 8190 desktop which I bought around 6 months ago. 
I've attached the event log from this morning.

Hi we have a Dell Inspirion about 1.5 years old. Here is the Sysinfo.
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.4

Periodically, usually overnight the screen will go black. I have it hooked up to another monitor so i use 2 screens. When this happens I cannot wake it up, the only solution is to reboot it. I checked Control panel and it appears sleep mode is turned off. I have attached a screen shot of my settings.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

For the past few weeks, every time my computer (Windows Vista, custom gaming rig from ibuypower) goes to sleep it seems to have some issues upon waking up.

Basically, after I return to the desktop from sleep mode, my internet does not work (despite being recognized by my NetGear WG111v2 usb wirelesss adaptor). This has been happening, I think, since I changed my router (from a Belkin wireless router to a DLink wireless router).

Also, whenever I try to shut down the computer post sleep-mode, it takes forever on the shut down screen. Then, when I finally get to boot it up again, it tells me that it suffered a BSOD during shutdown.

This isn't a major issue - it's been solved so far by simply hard booting my computer whenever it goes into sleep mode (and I've been planning on changing how long it takes for the comp to go to sleep). Still, I don't really like hard-booting all the time. Anyone know what's up?

Hello, Lenovo team Can you please, add to your next BIOS update for Lenovo Y50-70 a fix, that my laptop won't lose CPU speed after i return my laptop from sleep mode. Right now i'm using BIOS version (3.03) There is no other way to fix this issue, only you can do it with a BIOS update for that model of laptop. Thank you.

Hi!

I purchased this laptop early September and I am super happy with it, but there's two minor things that annoy me and I haven't been able to fix yet:

1) When coming out of sleep or standby, it never automatically re-connects to the wireless it's on, I have to manually do this every time. The windows Wireless service is running fine, so that's not it, but what is?

2) Sometimes the touchpad will stop working randomly and I have to either use a mouse or reboot to fix it. I have reinstalled the touchpad drivers. Turning the touchpad off/on using the function keys does not solve the problem.

Any help would be appreciated!

A:Satellite Z30-A-1D0: No Wlan after sleep mode / touchpad issue

I can confirm both problems.
Update the WLAN Driver...seems fixed now.
(AC3160 - Driver: 17.1.0.19)

Touchpad and trackpointer sometimes won't work yes. I than just restart... I still hope on some overhaul of the ALPS mouse stuff.... (maybe with Win 10 this problems all will be gone - as the manufacturers (pretty sure) will release new (hopefully fixed) drivers.)

Hi guys,
         I have a Lenovo G500 Laptop .
   I accidentally deleted the OS drive(Win 8) resulting in installation of an Unregistered version of Windows7 OS. Since the day I have installed it,I noted that the Sleep mode is greyed out. Then the Sound wasn't working even after repeated reboots..I found that when I put my Laptop for Hibernate and wake it up the Sound would come up.I knew it was a temporary solution however I continued working in the same way.Of late,whenever I try to wake my PC from Hibernation,it displays a blank black screen and only when I remove the battery that the PC boots to the Desktop screen lest with Sound not working.One could hear the Windows Welcome Sound when it boots to the Login screen but the Sound services do not work after the Desktop screen comes up. 
Also, I do not have the Factory OS disc and it is Out of Warranty. 
 Please suggest..

If you are using a copy of Windows 7 downloaded from the Internet (e.g Windows 7 ultimate) you may find all sorts of issues.     If your system came with Windows 8.1, I would recommend you just re-install Windows 8.1.    You can get the Windows 8.1 Installation Media for Installer for Windows 8.1 for free from Microsoft using Microsoft's Media Creation Tool.    Your Product ID for Windows 8.1 is stored in the BIOS, and should be automatically detected during installation unless a sticker was applied with the Product Key. As far as the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like a driver issue, so you can try to update your drivers, but I would try to reinstall 8.1 if it were me.

Hello - I have about 50 Lenovo P series Laptops running in our comapny and within the last month, 2 - P51S same make and model has had power up issues.Users reported that they "control +alt+ Del" to lock out their laptops and when then returned the laptop was DOA. The signs are that the power power light is flashing every second ( Indicates in sleep mode)- FAn attempts to start but does not.I have tried plugging in different AC power adapter, disconnecting both external and internal batteries. No change. I have openned laptop and disconnected SSD, Wireless card, ROM battery, fan, speakers etc testing and no difference. I have tried to discharge by removing all power and and tapping power button 10 times and hold in for 30 seconds. No change.  I find it strange that 2 identical laptops would suffer the same issue at the same time?? Looking on internet - this looks like hugh problem that maybe linked to the motherboard issues on this make and model.I have called Lenovo and since out of warranty - sorry.So please help if anyone has any other ideas to try. Thank you in advance

I've been having periodic BSOD issues. I've uploaded the dump file and a screen shot of the blue screen app. Here's the bullet points (so it's easier to digest):
Windows 7, Version 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
always related to irql_not_less_or_equal, ntoskrnl.exe (except for the 2nd to last one, which had to do with NTFS)
This makes me believe it's hard drive failure, but I'm leaving chkdsk /r until the last minute
I thought it might have something to do with the USB WD External hard drive, but I ran chkdsk /r on that drive, didn't find any issues and the last BSOD happened after I unplugged the drive.
The last BSOD occurred right after I put the computer in sleep mode and had my Galaxy S3 hooked up charging.
Unfortunately, I do not remember if the previous BSOD events happened when the computer was in sleep mode or when I had my phone charging.
I am going to run memtest and also attempt to upgrade the graphics drivers, but I'm hoping someone here can say 'Bingo!" it's this driver.

I am running a HP P6228p desktop Win7 64bit Home Premium with all MS and HP updates applied. I installed a 2-port Sabrent PCI USB3 card, installed the driver for it from the web (Win7 failed to find an appropriate driver on its own) and moved my Iomega USB2 external HD from a USB2 port where if functioned perfectly to one of the new USB3 ports. When I boot - no problems - but every time my PC awakes from sleep mode an autoplay window pops up asking me if I want to open the folder on the Iomega drive to view the contents. How can I stop this behavior on the USB3 port without screwing up autoplay/autorun for other things? In other words, how can I set the Iomega to not go into autoplay (when coming out of sleep mode) when on the USB3 port? btw - the only data on the Iomega drive are the data created by MS Backup.

1/21 - Oh c'mon guys. I know that one of you really Windows-smart people knows the answer. Help!

A:USB3 card - USB2 Iomega HD - autoplay issue from sleep mode

OK
Sabrent support admitted that when Windows has the PC in Sleep Mode, the ASMedia chip on the card does not trickle enough current to keep the external hard drive alive, so when the PC is awakened, the HD causes AutoPlay to pop. There is no fix or reasonable workaround. So, I've returned the card to Frys and uninstalled the USB3 driver. The Sabrent card is the only USB3 upgrade card sold by Frys in their Austin store. Next, I think I'll try the Western Digital 2-port PCIx-USB 3.0 card which uses NEC chips & which also does not require an additional power cable. The many Amazon customer reviews I read about the WD card were very good, but the Amazon price of $37 will probably keep me waiting for a sale because I don't yet own any USB3 devices anyway. Also, I'm waiting for the price of WD's My Book 2TB or 3TB external HD to come down.

Hi all,

I have this issue since upgrading, that there is a pause every 30 seconds or so. If I'm scrolling or typing it just pauses for maybe a second. I've looked and it appears there is no bios upgrade or driver upgrade on the Intel website. So I'm kind of stumped how to fix it.

The other issue is that it randomly just dumps into sleep mode. I can pull it right out, but it's annoying. I checked the screensaver and power settings, but nothing is out of the ordinary.

Laptop is an Asus N76VZ

Any ideas where to look next?

Hi SpiderX and welcome to TenForums.

First, can you please take the battery out of the laptop, plug in the power cord, and see if the pausing continues? I have seen this happen sometimes with failing batteries. Just need to make sure this is not an issue.

Second, if you have just recently upgraded, it will take several reboots and some time for the system to calm down - indexing will keep the hard drive very busy until that is completed, for example.

I've also had a situation where I found I needed to get a good full shutdown in order to correct some strange occurrences on one system after the upgrade, and so it's a matter of changing a setting in power options to get rid of "fast startup".

Let us know how it goes for you.

Over the past several years there are many posts of users experiencing variations on this problem with X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga of various generations, including the latest ones (I provide a list below). That is, the systems often cannot come out of sleep mode in some way, shape, or form. I had this problem on my own brand-new X1 Carbon 5th Generation, right out of the box. In my instance, I noticed this issue in the following two scenarios: -After having gone in to sleep mode, once I opened the lid, or press power button once:power light goes from blinking to solid onscreen stays blank/blackseems that if the machine is going to be in the frozen state, keyboard presses do not "unsleep" it (which they normally would). Closing the lid causes the power light to go to solid on, but then opening it again does nothing.in a couple of rarer instances, the machine actually did come out of sleep but then instantly the screen froze (but this was quite uncommon, mostly it just wouldn't come out of sleep at all)-After passing the initial boot screen of Lenovo, the next part shows the Lenovo logo but without the swirling dots and is frozen (the power light would show on)Under both conditions: The power light is solid onThe keyboard lights functionality works: backlighting, FnLock light, mute lightSometimes you can hear the fan workingPlugging in to external display does not display anything on itThe only way to rectify is to do a hard shutdown by holding the power key With...

Hi,
I've had this problem intermittently on my laptop for the past 2 years however it has been occuring more often recently.

Basically sometimes when I click the sleep button on Windows 7, the screen fades to black as usual. However the fan keeps running (sounds like when it's on full load) and the power button light stays on endlessly. I always have to force shut it down and restart it.

What can be the issue?
Thanks.

A:Laptop freezes between entering sleep mode to being in sleep mode

Hi joseph10444.

Such a situation may occur when some driver (mostly the PnP device drivers depending on the ACPI configuration) fail to response within a stipulated time period during the power state change.

Let us see some data. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Upload the list of all the third party drivers Using NirSoft DriverView :
Download and execute Driverview
View > Hide Microsoft Drivers
Edit > Select all
File > Save Selected Items
In the Save dialog, Set the path to desktop, Put "Driverview" in the name field, and save.
Zip the .txt file and upload it.
Those files will give us a closer look to the issue.

I just had the fan replaced, and now when I use F4 to put the laptop in sleep mode and then close the lid, it remains in sleep mode when I open the lid.  Same thing occurs when I close the lid (no F4) for sleep mode and then open the lid.  However, when I select Sleep on the Windows 7 Start Menu and close the lid, the laptop does resume when I open the lid. NOTES:- Before replacing the fan, I used F4 for sleep and resume, because when I close the lid I would sometimes find the fan running the next morning- BIOS is up-to-date- Keyboard and mouse are set to wake PC- Power Options Settings:   - Allow hybrid sleep set to OFF and Hibernate set to NEVER (As they always have been)   - USB Settings > Disabled USB selective suspend settings  (These were enabled) While this isn't a huge problem, I would like to have things working as before, preferably without having to go back to the Lenovo certified shop. Thank you in advance for your help. Jeff
