X1 Yoga 3rd Gen Fan Runs in Sleep

Q: X1 Yoga 3rd Gen Fan Runs in Sleep

Hey everyone, I was wondering is it normal for the fan to be still running after I put the laptop to sleep? It happens both with clicking "Sleep" in the Start Menu and closing the lid. I can see the think red dot starting to blink but the fan still runs for about 30 seconds or so with hot air pumped out. I've never noticed that with the X1 Yoga 2nd Gen. Is this a new feature or a new bug...? Thanks a lot! Jack

I got my computer a few months ago and it was fine until early August when it started to wake from sleep automatically. I know something was happening because the processor fan speed was changing rapidly as on my computer started to sound like a vacuum cleaner. Whenever my computer goes into screensaver the same thing happens. As I was posting this the computer just turned on by itself and went into sleep mode, I'm posting this from my phone because I do not trust my computer enough to even look up anything about virus removal. I considered reformatting but I would choose not to if I don't have to. Sorry if this is confusing. PC: Windows 8 64 bit. Also norton and windows defender find no viruses when run when the other is disabled.

A while ago I had a problem with a Computer running Windows 8 Pro x64 where it would wake up very early in the morning or various times at night. It wasn't nice since the computer is in my bedroom. Eventually, a Microsoft Support person disabled the Wake Timers but that didn't help. Finally, for no reason at all--maybe it was a Windows Update (don't know) but it stopped doing it.

Recently, the computer has started to wake up on its own while in Sleep Mode, and then shut down in Hibernation Mode approximately one minute later after it has been in Sleep Mode for a while, apparently more than an hour or so. During the time the computer turns itself on, nothing is displayed on the monitor screen.

I have attached two screenshots of the last recorded issue, one showing the General tab info and the other showing the Details tab info, for your reference.

What is causing this problem?

Thanks.

Since Firmware 4.04 the Thunderbolt Docking runs hot.It smells like slow "burning" plastic. My whole office smells like "burning plastic" after 2-3 hours in use.I have checked all items and found that the plastic smell comes from Thunderbolt Docking.After Update to Firmware 4.4 nothing changed. It smells and I'm afraid that it burns some day. I have changed the Docking to another new one. Flashing firmware to 4.4 and same issue. The new one also smells after 2-3 hours like burning plastic. That's not normal ... My configuration is:- Yoga 370 connected with USB-C (only USB-C connected for Data and Power)- two EIZO Monitors connected on Thunderbolt-3 Anyone have this same problem?

The Yoga 3 Pro seems to run fairly well, but when I ran the test at userbenchmark.com the comment was "17.6% is an extremely low CPU score. It's a wonder that this system was able to run the User benchmark software." I ran the Lenovo Optimizer and it, too, said the processor was running too slow. It offered 2 suggestions to speed it up, but after trying to implement the suggestions a number of times and getting an error message that said it couldn't fix the problem andI should try again on another day, I gave up. The two suggested fixes didn't seem to have anything to do with processor speed, only updating some software. Anyone have a similar problem or know what is going on?

A:Yoga 3 Pro processor runs slow

Use high performance plan and then rerun your benchmarks. Also try Winrar Benchmark and see if CPU usage goes to max CPU and Turbo frequency. With the Intel 4300U on my Tablet, I get 3216 KB/s. You should be able to get at least 2500 KB/s if it's running at full speed. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7475/15521960304_7c4808883d_o_d.png

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

Right, I have a Seagate 250GB external hard drive that runs through a USB port on my Windows XP laptop.

The Hard drive Runs a auto 'Sleep' Mode after about 10 - 15 mins of not being accessed manually through the OS Folders. It then has to 'Wake-up' again which is affecting the way programs, music etc are run off of it.

Ive contacted Seagate and they say there isn't a way to disable this function, but there has to be something that can keep it 'awake' all the time.

So i thought I'd ask you guys, Hope you can help me.

Thanks

Hello,
This 2-in-1 laptop is starting diagnostic mode after waking from sleep. It's not doing this after a reboot but only after being asleep.
Once the diagnostic runs (without errors), I'm able to use the machine again. It's more inconvenient than anything else.
Is this just a sign of failing hardware? I ask because it's also having audio issues, for which I've already started another thread in the Audio forum.
Please help and thank you.

Hello Everyone, This is my first post in the community, which is also why i might not be in the right section. Apologies in advance! I work in IT, and i help manage different Lenovo Thinkpads. We current have 20-30 Yoga 370 in our network.  On more than one occasion i've experienced this model running extremely slow. So what i did was, i pulled up the task mgr, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. CPU was running steady at 40%ish, and plenty of RAM available. Reboot didn't resolve anything. The only thing which fixes the issue is unplugging the Docking Cord (USB-C), and plugging it again.  I was wondering if this is a known issue. Because i've experienced it around 10 times, but never frequently on the same machine. It's not the biggest problem, but i would like to know if anyone else has experienced this.  Best regards Jeppe

Hi all, Facts :Last august 30th, I ordered a Lenovo Yoga 3 14 (i5 / 8 / 256) from Amazon.It's been delivered one week ago (02/09/15).Two days ago (monday), I installed Kaspersky antivirus, downloaded the files for Windows 10, closed the screen and it went to sleep...And never woke up again ! I tried any and every keys / switches combo I thought of (power switch w/o volume switchs + and -, Novo switch, function keys, Ctrl/alt/ del, ctrl/shift/esc, escape, spacebar, enter... Right now, the power led is still on, the PC runs on battery and I'm waiting for it to run out of charge.I can hear and feel a very tiny ventilation from the back. 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.

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'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>...

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...

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.

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...

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?

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.

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.

Question says it all for the most part.  Just got my Yoga 260.  Works great expect it will NEVER wake from sleep.  this is a huge problem obviously as I have to do a hard reboot by holding hte power button in until it dies then press again to boot the machine. power light blinks just as it should in sleep but nothing will allow it to wake except holding power button down doing a hard shutdown then reboot.  Anyone have a fix for this?  Thanks.

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.

When my Lenovo Yoga 920 is in sleep mode I have two problems which are probably related.  The bluetooth doesn't turn off. All my devices will stay connected to the bluetooth. This can be really annoying because when I need to use a bluetooth device it will connect to my laptop which is not in use before I can get it to connect with my phone or other device.  The other problem is my battery drains too fast when in sleep mode. With my other laptops you could hardly see the battery drain. And this one it drains like 10 percent a day in sleep mode. I am sure the bluetooth probems is mostly to blame.  Is there any way to turn this feature off? When I shut the lid and it goes to sleep, I want it to be fully asleep.

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've had my Yoga 3 11" for about a month, and recently have been experiencing a strange behavior.  It randomly - and frequently - turns the screen off, even when I am actively working on it, where I have to re-log back on to unlock the screen.  It's to a point where this is happening every 5 minutes now.  I've re-configured the power options so that it doesn't turn off for an hour, but that didn't help.  It is almost un-workable at this point.  Has anyone else been experiencing this? 

A:Yoga 3 11 Random Sleep Mode

I've had my Yoga 3 11 for about 3 days. It goes into sleep mode and shuts off the hard disk every 2 minutes or so even if I am actively typing. If I can't find a solution in the next 2 days, I am returning it. I really like this laptop but this makes it unusable.  Has corrupted files that I am copying because the hard drive goes to sleep. I have set the power settings to shut down the screen after 3 hours and the hard disk never.
