X1 Carbon Waking From Sleep Mode With Lid Closed

Q: X1 Carbon Waking From Sleep Mode With Lid Closed

Howdy folks, I did some quick searching and could not find an answers to my problem and thus am posting here. I have a X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (Type 20BS) with Windows 10 and over the past 2-3 months have noticed the following problem: Problem: After placing the computer into sleep mode via the start button and closing the lid the computer will randomly start back up. I will often open my pc after noticing how overheated it is and find that it came back on and for some reason the touchscreen has been typing and opening applications. Obviously this is very annoying and results in my computer draining its batter and random applications being opened. Any ideas on what may be causing this and how I can fix it? Happy to provide driver details and any other diagnostics if you think it would help. Thanks,Andy

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Although I found different threads for this or a similar issue all offered sultutions do not work for my laptop. After waking up from sleep mode (maybe forth or fifth time) the fingerprint sensor is not activated for Windows login any more (Windows Pro 10, 64-bit). Only a reboot will activate the fingerprint sensor again. I have tried everything together with the Lenovo support:re-installing different driversBIOSPower settings for the FP sensorseveral new installations of Windowsnew SSDnew sensornew motherboardnew laptopwith and without different antvirus softwareI do not have weired software installed or any unusal programs. My collegue has the same laptop except for the i5 instead of my i7 core and he has no problems. He also uses the same set of programs. Does anybody have suggestions how to solve this problem?

first time here, I have about a week experience (pulled out some hair) with windows 8/8.1, but I consider myself pretty comfortable with Windows in general.

When my win8.1 laptop is in sleep mode, I can wake it with a mere touch of my external bluetooth k/b without any issues, as long as the lid is opened. If I close the lid, I can continue to use it as its connected to a big Samsung plasma tv. But if I let the laptop go to sleep (or put it to sleep myself thru the menu), I am unable to wake it back; I need to pull it out from a/v furniture, open the lid and press the power button.

Is this a win8 thing, an Acer Aspire thing, or worse it can't be done?
Anyone else able to wake from sleep their win8 laptop w/closed lid???

HiI'm using a HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j198ez Notebook PC running Windows 10 64bit.I have an external display, and it's the only display I need, hence, the laptop lid is always closed. The peripherals I use are:Microsoft Designer Mouse/Keyboard Wireless Kit - BluetoothWacom Intuos 4 Tablet - USBLogitech Rumblepad 2 Game Controlle - USB None of the above mentioned peripherals wake the laptop from sleep. And I am forced to open the lid everytime I need to use the laptop. Previously I was using a Logitech USB keyboard and a Logitech Wireless Mouse (wth USB dongle) - both were able to wake the laptop from sleep with no problem. Gave up on them because I needed the extra USB slots. I also have a Bluetooth speaker set, which led me to belive that the bluetooth connection of the laptop is closing whenever the laptop is going into sleep, since it starts searching for other devices to pair with. This would explain why the mouse and keyboard can't wake the laptop, even though I have checked the "Allow this device to wake computer from sleep" boxes, for both, in the Device Manager dialogue. Any solutions for this?I would also be happy if the tablet or gamepad would wake the laptop. But the "Allow this device to wake computer from sleep" check boxes are greyed out for these devices. Thanks in advance.

Hi all,
I was just wondering if you can advise on something.
My new laptop keeps waking itself from sleep in my bag. As far as I can tell, the screen comes on and does not turn off and the laptop stays on until it runs out of battery (about 9 hours). This causes the screen and laptop in general to get very hot, as it is in my bag and in a laptop sleeve.
I wondered if it was bad for the screen to get this hot? I know the components can handle it, otherwise the laptop would shut down. But I am worried about the screen.
It is the Asus UX303LA-R4338H. It has a LCD panel (matte, non-touch, if that makes a difference). Windows 8.1.
As for the waking up: I think it might have been waking after 3 hours to go in to hibernate, so I have turned off hibernation in power settings (but I am yet to try this latest change). I have no tasks scheduled to wake the laptop, all devices bar the keyboard aren't allowed to wake it, can't be woken by internet, etc. What is curious is that it when this happens it does not sleep after 15 minutes or turn off the display after 5 minutes, as per my settings. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
1. Is this bad for laptop screen/elsewhere on the laptop to be on, in a closed environment, and this hot for 9 hours?
2. Any further ideas why it might be turning on and then not sleeping after 15 minutes?

A:Laptop waking from sleep when closed - bad for screen?

It's definitely not good for the battery. Getting hot in the bag isn't god either. If it was me I would do a full shut down instead of sleep mode.

Sometimes, maybe around half the time (I haven't counted), my laptop doesn't go to sleep when the lid is closed.  The fan keeps running and the Thinkpad logo red light stays on.  I know that the computer "registers" the lid closing, because the screen turns off and I get logged out.  This is very inconvenient because every time I close my laptop, I have to wait a minute to see if it properly went to sleep.  If this problem does occur, opening and closing the lid once more seems to put it to sleep.  I thought maybe it just took some time for the laptop to go to sleep, but my laptop was in my backpack today for a couple hours, logo light on and fan running and of course quite warm.  Did some searching but couldn't find a solution.  Is there a fix for this?  Thanks.

Hello everyone, Thank you very much in advance for your help. I have a X1 Carbon 6th Gen 20KH that's about 2 months old. Recently (I can't remember after which update in particular) my spacebar has stopped working after coming back out of sleep mode. It will randomly resume function after about 5-15 minutes. Otherwise a restart fixes the issue immediately. The onscreen keyboard works fine. I also tried onscreen keytracker and it's ONLY the spacebar that's not working, all other keys work fine and there's no stuck keys. I have tried a lot of things as follows: 1) updating and reinstalling drivers for Lenovo Hotkey, Lenovo Power Management, BIOS (1.30), Intel IO, Intel Management Engine, Synaptics Drivers. Uninstalling Windows keyboard drivers. 2) SFC /scannow, DISM /healthcheck (no corruption) 3) Malware scan I have called Lenovo support and advice was to reinstall windows or send in the machine. I am not in position to do either and hoping for a simpler fix if possible.  Thank you so much again.  Cheers,Toan.

The fingerprint sensor on my X1 carbon is essentially unusable... Each time the laptop wakes from sleep the sensor does not start up (the green light does not turn on and does not react to any fingerprint). I wonder if the others have the same problem.

My speaker and my audio generate very loud high pitched noise after waking from sleep.I had to mute my audio if this happens, but the speaker is essentially unusable in this situation.If I plug in my headphone through audio jack, the high pitched noise will come from both headphone (and unmutable) and my speaker (if I turn on the volume). I hope this is fixable through driver update.

I've been using this Windows 7 Home system for some years. At first it used the CRT monitor I had for much longer than this system, then a used LCD monitor, now for the last six or eight months a larger used, but seemingly in excellent condition, Dell E228WFP.

My habit has been, for much longer than I've had the Win7 system, to manually put the system in sleep mode during the day when I expect to be away for any extended time. I turn it off if I will definitely be away for hours and turn it off over night.

The problem did not exist until this Dell monitor. I don't recall how soon after getting the monitor it started, probably not very long.

The system always come up working properly when first turned on but sometimes, when I awaken the system, the video is at a much lower resolution. Looking at the Windows Screen resolution, it says generic PNP monitor rather than the Dell. This is an annoyance but easy enough to fix, just click on Detect, and it switches back to the Dell at the higher resolution, the recommended 1680 X 1050, which is enough to suit me.

Starting perhaps six or eight weeks ago it sometimes instead woke up with a message
1: auto detect (analog input)
Cannot display this video mode
optimum resolution 1680 x 1050 60Hz

Sometime the first line instead says
2: Analog Input

The only way to get any video is to restart the system, which always came up correct from boot or reboot, just not from reawaken. If nothing was open when I put it to sleep, I can use the k... Read more

My system goes to sleep after 20 minutes just the way I want it.
The problem comes from waking it up to perform scheduled tasks.
I run a weekly scan using McAfee which doesn't wake up my system, so I have to come up with a method of making sure my machine is awake at the scheduled time.
I also run a scheduled backup of my system, so the impact is felt here too.
Currently before the scheduled tasks run, I change my power setting to never go to standby (I forget the actual phrase, but you know what I mean), but that seems drastic. There must be a way of waking up my maching prior to a scheduled event then after the event go back to sleep.
Any help out there??

When my computer wakes up from sleep mode all the fans start turning and everything seems to power up but nothing shows up on the screen. After a few hard reboots the system will start up and run extremely slow for a minute, and then be fine. That is until it sleeps again. I know the simple fix would be just to never let it sleep but for power saving reasons I use this mode.


A:Waking up from sleep mode.

Go into device manager and see if all your drivers are installed and there are no problems there. I would also run a windows 7 update. I believe that is a hotfix from MS that is intended to fix the issue and it should be available in the windows 7 updates.

When I put my computer in Sleep mode, using the start button / shutdow / sleep it "sleeps" for about 10 minutes and wakes up on its own! Could it be programs trying to run in the background that wakse it up; Carbonite Backup or Norton? I can't get the computer to remain in sleep mode!

A:Sleep mode, why is it waking up?

I had a similar problem with my PC, which uses a Gigabyte motherboard, so I checked the Gigabyte forums -- and the advice they gave me was to disable the BIOS option to allow the PC to wake on USB. The downside is that I now have to push the power button to wake the PC; the upside is that it STAYS asleep until I wake it.

When I wake my PC both from automatic "Turn off the display" option and from sleep mode a "film grain" effect at beginning is produced for 3 seconds and then it goes normal. The problem was there also before the AMD ReLive update. I don't know if that's normal, but I don't want to risk by ignoring it, I just worry that the problem will get worse and worse.

I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit on an HP Pavilion desktop computer.
When not working on the computer, I put it in sleep mode.
To waken it, I move the mouse. This works, but for the first few seconds of the awakening the computer makes a high-pitched, fast reverberating sound.
This sound comes from the speakers, which determine the loudness of the sound.
The same sound occurs if I awaken the computer by pressing a key on the keyboard. This sound did not occur until after the first 12 months of owning the computer, which came with Vista. Does anyone know of this problem and how to eliminate it?

A:Noise when waking from sleep mode

Sound, must be related to the sound card. Go to device manager (type name in search) and then check the drivers for the sound card) Most current? Working properly? Go to website check for updates of drivers and firmware. Reset sound card.

I keep getting BSODs when my computer wakes up from sleep mode. It doesn't happen every time, but it does seem to be more likely if the computer has been asleep for a long time, say overnight. This happened a few months ago, and I posted to this forum, which helped me fix it. Everything worked fine until the last few weeks or so, when it started happening again. Please find my diagnostic file attached. Here's the info Windows gives me upon rebooting:

Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hi, as the title says ive been having repeated problems with Sleep Mode, i have set ACPI Standby State to S3 & there are no overclocking settings enabled, it could be related to my hardrive, i have three with one being an SSD (Samsung 840 Pro 128gb) that has the OS, (Samsung HD103SJ) & (Samsung HD753LJ) for storage, the driver is the latest one, im also using a Gigabyte EP35-DS3R with a custom Bios F5 update that Gigabyte sent me to help fix an error with sleep mode a few years back before i upgraded to an SSD, its known to be buggy when overclocking as it can cycle thru wake up / sleep when overclocking but i dont bother with that anyway GA-EP35-DS3R Rev.2.1 - NOT GOING TO OVERCLOCK. - AnandTech Forums

By going into bios & resetting Stanby State to S3 seems to fix it but after a while the BSOD returns

Included is the Zip file containing the logs

Also when i reboot, by pressing delete it doesn't always load up the Bios screen but instead the Windows Safety Mode?

When I configured the Metro e-mail program on my laptop the system announced that it was increasing the security settings on my computer. (Thanks for nothing for not telling me what changes were being made). Afterwards, the laptop goes into sleep mode if unattended for more than 10 minutes. In Control Panel/Power Options I have indicated that the laptop should go into Sleep mode after 4 hours, whether plugged in or on battery. Why does the system ignore this setting?

Also, when the laptop is awakened from Sleep mode, the system requires me to enter my password again. In Control Panel/Power Options/System Settings the "Password protection on wake-up" setting is set to "Don't require a password" . Why is the OS ignoring this setting?

Hi, I hope this is the right forum.

Sleep mode not working properly. When i close the lid, or select sleep, and then try to resume, the computer turns off instead. Upon restarting i get the error message "Windows did not shut down correctly" (as shown in the attached photo)

I have scoured these forums and have tried various solutions which do not work.

Some of the things that i have tried which i can remember:

Double checked all the power settings
Checked the device manager and under "USB Controllers", where there is a "USB Root Hub" under "power management" i have deselected "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power"
Turning off hybrid mode
Any other ideas?

Would love to solve this problem, really annoying.

A:Not waking from sleep mode properly

first enter your BIOS and make sure that ACPI power state is set to S3 and hardware settings are set to wake with 'any key' and/or mouse (mousepad) or 'lid opening' (not sure if this setting exists as I don't use laptops)--after booting--check to see that your screen saver is set to 'none'

then change your power plan to High Performance (you can edit this later to save your battery)--then edit the plan settings to match the screen shots (note: the settings shown in the first screen shot for 'turn off display' and 'put computer to sleep')--IF this works--then try editing one setting at a time (testing) to see which works for power saving (put machine to sleep--wait a minute or so as win 7 doesn't sleep instantly)--then wake it, to see how a changed setting affects the function)

I was able to wake the computer up from sleep mode only once after changing the power settings in device manager for the Human Interface Devices, Keyboards, Mice, and USB, along with turning off Window's 10 sleep mode via the Command Prompt. For some reason, trying to change the power options again doesn't get sleep mode working for me again. If anyone has a better idea as to the actual problem I'm facing, please let me know what I can do.

After a minute, the display would turn off but the fan and fan lights on the tower would still be running. It would not wake with the keyboard or mouse, and when I hit the power button on the tower it would shut off. I can't remember if it was resuming from sleep or booting up when I pressed the button a second time...

I don't know what changed but at least the computer is waking up from sleep now. Any ideas about how to fix the mouse/keyboard problem? I don't know how changing the PSU affected all this...like I said I don't know much about the inner workings of a computer so I hope I didn't mess a... Read more

I have an Asus Vivobook with the updated windows 8 installed. I cannot figure out how to make the laptop wake from sleep from the keyboard without opening the laptop and waking it from the screen. Is it possible to change this?

- Under keyboards, right click your keyboard and select properties
- On the power management tab, select "allow this device to wake the computer"

I purchased my Hp envy 360 laptop at Best Buy about a week ago. It was an open box purchase because It was in near perfect condition . I tryed charging it but it only charges when it is in sleep mode or either closed . When I plug it in while its in it has a white light and the battery days plugged in ; not charging . But when I close it there is a orange light and a couple hours later it's fully charged . I assumed I had a bad battery but I ran a battery test and it said my battery was fine . Because it charges when it's closed I assumed their was a setting I could just switch but i don't know what to do .

Noticed that my Bluetooth headphones are connecting to the laptop while it's supposed to be sleeping with its lid closed.All the settings are configured to put it in the sleep mode when lid is closed. Is there anything else that would cause the laptop to wake up?
