Yoga 2 Pro wakes up when lid is closed

Q: Yoga 2 Pro wakes up when lid is closed

Hi All, I'm new to the forum and am loving my Y2P so far. I have been following several threads about tweaking my new machine, and I love the sense of community that you guys have here. I decided to join so I could pose a question: Has anyone had a problem with their machine waking up with the lid closed (in sleep mode). Sometimes when I take my computer out of my bag, it is awake. Since the power button is so hard to press in the first place, I don't think an accidental press is waking it up. Could a device be waking it up? What do you guys think? -IB

Preferred Solution: Yoga 2 Pro wakes up when lid is closed

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.)

Yes, I have this too. Bad thing is I always have that in a laptop case so everytime when it wakes up it is baking-hot.

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?

Hi,I close the lid, the 710 sleeps. I move the external mouse, the 710 wakes. No other laptop I've got does that, I'd consider it a bug. As a work-around you can untick "Allow this device to wake the computer", on the Power Management tab of the HIB-Compliant Mouse properties dialog. Now the mouse won't wake the laptop when the lid is closed, or open of course, which is not ideal. I then changed the wireless mouse, replacing an old Logitech with a new JETech 2.4GHz 0885, the untick was repeated but the mouse still woke the 710. Luckily a documented oddity it seems and unticking "Allow this device to wake the computer" for the HID Keyboard fixed the problem. No idea why one mouse needed this but not the other one. Is this problem of an external mouse waking a closed laptop specific to this model I wonder, and is it likely to get fixed? Cheers

Hello. I know that this problem has been dissuced already here.My device is not a plain Yoga 900, but the(Yoga 900-13ISK2.Is there a bios update that will allow me to make sure that my computer stays sleeping while I move with it? From what I read, the problem seems to be that a key in the keyboard is being pressed and that wakes up the machine.  Thanks!    Doron

When the laptop is closed, pressure on the laptop will cause it to wake from sleep. There is no option in the BIOS or device manager to disable the wake from sleep option for the keyboard. Here is someone with a similar issue with the ISK1. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-900-keyboard-wakes-laptop-from-sleep/...

Most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. Computer goes to sleep when lid is open, and wakes when lid is closed. I can open it about 20 degrees and work on it like nothing's wrong. I tried turning off the lid-sleep option in Windows, but no change, and it goes to sleep instantly even if it's in the BIOS or mid-boot. The machine is practically new with very little changed from the stock configuration, and it was fine yesterday. Anyone ever seen this? Also the power button and little reset hole seem to not do anything anymore either.

I have a Yoga 700-11ISK, and would frequently put it to sleep, put it in my backpack, & pull it out hours later to find it RED hot & the battery 90% drained.  After wasting an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out why it kept doing this (and damaging other items in my backpack due to the extreme heat), I came across this thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/ll06_en/thread-id/25982/page/2 The problem is that the keyboard remains active even when the lid is closed, so if it gets squeezed in such a way that the screen internally presses a key, it will silently wake itself up.  Apparently Lenovo has spent the past four years churning out laptop after laptop that suffer from this defect, never thinking to learn from their mistakes.  Here are more:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-900-keyboard-wakes-laptop-from-sleep/...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Return-of-the-wake-while-lid-closed-proble...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/ll06_en/thread-id/35267/page/6 I've tried the hack/script solution proposed in the first thread, but it doesn't work (the keyboard can't be disabled by DevManView without a reboot).  The other threads apply to the Yoga 900, which I guess Lenovo fixed with a BIOS update. This issue is such a problem that I've literally stopped carrying the laptop around...which was th...

My Yoga 920 seems to ranomly wake from sleep when the lid is closed. I'd had several occasions when travelling to find my latop completely dead when I needed it - or finding it burning up in the confines of my bag. A few times, I've been alerted to problem when I happen to hear my laptop make a notification sound. When this happens, the screen is already on when I open the lid and much of the bettery has been used. I've seen this occur both in and out of my bag. Nothing is plug into the laptop other then the dummy USB holder for the pen. I have Vantage installed and all updates have been applied.

I understand this is a long shot, due to number of possible software variables, but I need help, as this is becoming a more and more frequent problem. I have a y510p. It is running Windows 8.1, haven't jumped to 10 yet. I run pretty average software - Google Chrome, Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, obviously a few other things.  I've been having a problem where for reasons I do not understand the laptop, which I bring around with me in a backpack, has been waking up after I disconnect from power and USB dock and close the lid. I don't know when it wakes up, or if it just isn't sleeping at all, but it is quite problematic in that it will at the very least just drain the battery every night and worse it is just cooking and cooking in the backpack.  I know it is a stupid thing, but I do find it a tremendous nuisance to sit there and stare at the status LEDs every day when I'm ready to go home just to make sure the stupid thing has absolutely gone to sleep. Control Panel - Power Options are set to sleep on Lid close (tried Hibernate on Lid close, no better result), and this even happens when WiFi is disabled in Control Panel - Network connections. The Always On USB port is also disabled in BIOS.

I have a Thinkpad X1 yoga running Windows 7 x64.  I store my laptop in a sleeve with the power button and volume rocker facing down so that the power supply port is facing up.  I often find that the computer has woken itself up while in my backpack, sometimes it even starts playing music by itself while in there.  I've disable the power button by setting it to "do nothing" in my power plans.  I can't find any way to disable the volume rocker, but it also doesn't wake when I press those buttons.  I then considered than maybe the touchscreen is waking the device, or that the chassi is flimsy enough that it is registering a key press and waking even though it is closed in laptop mode (i.e. screen facing in).  In any case, the thing shouldn't be waking itself from sleep while in my backpack for any reason. Does anybody have an idea of why it is doing this stupid, horrible thing and how to prevent it?

I want to demonstrate aproblem I have had with my Yoga 900 to see if others have had similar issues. I discovered this when I put my Yoga, (which was asleep) in my backpack, and then later noticed it was awake. It took me a while to figure out what was happening, but I finally determined that it had nothing to do with the backpack. My Yoga 900 would wake up when picked up by the short edge (as I did to put it n my backpack). You can see this in the video:Yoga 900 Waking when pickedup (BTW -- I am not squeezing the laptop, I am just holding it as needed to pick it up by the edge. This does press down on the lid and there is upward pressure on the bottom. It is the pressure on the cover that seems to be the cause of the laptop waking) Note that Lenovo has been great, and is sending me a replacement laptop. But I am curious if others see this same problem. Is this a common Yoga 900 Issue?

This is an annoying problem I've had since I got this machine a few months ago.Problem is not that the machine does not wake up. Because it does. It just "forgets" to turn on the display, (fans and lights are all working) When connected to the dock or an external display I never have this problem. But sometimes when waking up alone the screen is black.  Yes that?s right ?SOMETIMES?. It?s only every 2nd or 3ed wakeup so its not consistent and therefore hard to trouble shoot. I found a workaround to wake it up... I found that if I manipulate the gyroscope/accelerometer to change the screen rotation it wakes up the screen. If you have a Yoga, fold it to tablet/display mode and place it in portrait mode.. So I think the problem is with the gyroscope. I have read that many models with tablet mode and win 10 has this issue.Is this a known problem, is there a permanent fix for this?

Yoga 13 Laptop (ideapad) model 20175; Win 10 64-bit Having a problem when I wake after closing the lid. The keyboard and touchpad stop responding. A window pops up in the lower right asking if I want to enter Tablet mode (which I do not) but I have no way of answering the prompt! There is absolutly no response. The only option is to hold the power button until it performs a hard shutdown which I know is not a good thing for Windows and the app that I had open. How do I prevent/resolve this? I've read that you can disable the ymc service, but I DO want the ability to use the machine in Tent or Tablet mode, but only when I orient the device in those positions. I just have it sitting on a desk and I open and close the lid as needed. Are there new drivers or updates I need to install to resolve this? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 (Intel Core i7-6560U 3.2 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10) and have been experiencing the following issue since I purchased it: I put the laptop in sleep mode and into my laptop bag. The laptop will wake up by itself later despite the lid is closed. It then stays on as it's inside the laptop bag it gets very hot and drains the battery. Since this has happened closer to 10 times already I'm worried if the battery life is already damaged due to heating. Normally when I close the lid the laptop goes onto sleep mode.  I have already taken many measures to try and stop it from waking up from this article (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/stop-windows-computer-randomly-waking/). I have set the power setting so that it should always go on sleep mode when the lid is closed. I don't understand how it goes on even when the lid is closed.  What could be the problem? Thanks in advance!

I've had this laptop for about 2 years now, great laptop, i'm running windows 10 now. I recently accidentally hit the laptop while it was closed though, and i think that might have screwed up the open/close detection. When I close the laptop, sometimes it does not go to sleep and heats up my backpack until it dies and i can't use it when i want to. I have to press the side power button to make sure it goes to sleep. When I open up the laptop after it was in sleep mode, I have to press a button for it to turn it back on... I'm wondering if there is a fix i can do, to the software or hardware of the laptop.

I'm using a Yoga 2 Pro with an external monitor via HDMI. It works fine when the lid is open, whether the display is extended, cloned or second screen only. However, as soon as I close the lid, the system gets very slow and I experience redraw issues. I think it may be with the way the graphics card handles the monitor's resolutions. I do not have room on my desk to open the lid, so I need a solution so I can work with my external monitor and the lid closed. Thank you.

We currently have ThinkPads with mechanical docking stations.  When docked, we can turn the ThinkPads on and off with the lid closed using the power switch on the docking station. We are considering getting X1 Yogas (3rd Gen.) with Thunderbolt 3 external docks.  (Monitor and keyboard would connect to the dock in the office.) Using the power switch on the side of the X1 Yoga, can the Yoga be turned on and off with the lid closed?  Would the Power Options for "When I close the lid" have to be changed to "Do nothing"? If somebody is using this configuration, or if somebody with an X1 Yoga (3rd Gen.) could do a quick experiment, I would be very grateful for any information you could provide. Thanks.

Hey fellow Yoga users, Most of the time I use my Yoga 710 14 IKB connected to an external screen together with a mouse and a keyboard running it in a desktop like state, here I don't need the 2nd/original screen of the Yoga. Unfortunately, I've to open the Yoga's lid (which is BTW. kinda annoying with this device) to power the device ON -> It would be really great to do so without the necessity to open the lid when using it in my 'desktop mode'.

Hi!I have a bizzare issue with my Gen 1 X1 Yoga. The machine will not sleep when the lid is closed. I know this is not a software issue as holding a magnet above the sensor (in between the caps lock and shift key on the left keyboard bezel) sleeps the machine. Does anyone know where / what the magnet is thats meant to interact with this sensor? I assume it is meant to be positioned somewhere in the Screen bezel? if so does anyone know if this is something that could potentially be checked / serviced by a user or will i be bringing my machine to a repair centre.Cheers

Hi, Sometimes when I close the lid off my Yoga 260 Windows 10 are not going to sleep. The behaviour is really weird because the red light on the lid is blinking like when it's in sleep mode, but I can hear the rotating fan. When I open the lid it's even weirder. Windows are not locked and I am not prompt for a password. The whole system is very laggy. The mouse is moving in jumps and there is not any response to keyboard or screen touch. After few seconds/minutes the system is suddenly OK like nothing happend. This is not happening all the time and I was not able to see any pattern when this happens. What should I do to get rid of this? Thx for help.

OK so I have a number of problems with the fifteen or so ThinkPad Yoga 12 devices we have purchased. Some of these problems are being addressed in other threads (the black screen on start up which requires you swipe the screen in Windows 10 release 2 being one of them), but I'll just start with one problem for now to keep things clear. On my desk I have a ThinkPad Yoga 12. I have a ThinkPad UltraDock Pro USB 3.0 docking station, the newest revision. Connected are an external mouse and keyboard, a LAN cable, and 2 external monitors. The Yoga 12 is connected via the USB 3 cable, and the lid is closed. Both screens are up, LAN and input devices working, everything seems good. Every so often, the mouse cursor will magically jump to the bottom-right of the left external monitor and a left-click event is registered causing the Windows calendar to pop up. Happens maybe twice an hour. All devices are running clean Windows 10 1511 builds, fully patched. Also running ThinkPad System Update to get all latest drivers and latest BIOS revision. Latest DisplayLink driver is applied. Problem persists across all devices. How do we stop the ghost clicks from happening? The issue is driving my users crazy. The docking station specifically listed compatability with the Yoga 12 model so I don't see why there should be a problem. I've heard reports the situation is improved if the lid of the Yoga 12 is left open, but we lose deskspace this way and my users tell me this isn't a ... Read more

Hi, welcome to the forums.
Can you please post the full model number of you computer?
Just some guessing.
Guess 1: I noticed there was some other discussion about "Ghost Clicks" on this forums. Can you check if those clicks are made by the touch screen? Does it shows the Windows animation like someone is touching the screen?
Just in case can you post your full model number and the hardwareID of your monitor.
Also take a look at this article: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-3-1470/documents/ht1...
Guess 2: There was a driver update for Synaptics that shuts down the trackpoint when you close the lid. Can you check if your computer has a Synaptics trackpoint/touchpad. Check out the version of the driver.
...this are only wild guesses according to what I had read on this forums. But if you tell me that you don't have those problems if you disconnect the Ultradock Pro USB 3.0, maybe the issue is somewhere else.

I bought the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen during the week of Thanksgiving 2018.  I watched a ton of reviews showing the battery getting anywhere from 7-9 hrs of life even though it specs say 15 hours.  7-9 is still acceptable for me but my battery only gets ~2-3 hours of life.  This isn't even the worse part. Like many others my laptop suffers from the dreaded battery drain but seems worse than others.  I seem to not even be able to leave it without the A/C adapter plugged in at night or it will be below 40% by the morning. I have tried many of the "hacks" suggested.  Turned the USB always on OFF and turned the Thunderbolt 3 active at boot up OFF.Neither of those made any difference.  All my Windows power/battery settings (close lid, on power, on battery, etc.) are set to StandBy. I thought about doing a battery gauge reset but have seen horror stories that batteries are screwed up after doing that. Any suggestions for very low battery life relative to specs? excessive battery drain?  TIA,S104S

While the laptop is plugged in, closing the lid works properly (in my case, sleeps) and when the lid is subsequently opened it wakes correctly.
If I close the lid while unplugged, the laptop seems to power off hard - the front LED goes out immediately, and when I open the lid the machine boots from cold. The event viewer shows a critical Kernel Power error.
If I close the lid while plugged in, the front LED blinks - I assume this means going to sleep?, but then if I unplug power the machine powers off hard - same reboot and critical error when I open the lid.
I have 1.2.21 firmware.
Any ideas how to fix this?

I thought I had figured this out yesterday, but.. Nope!

This Windows 7 workstation has power settings applied via group policy over a large network. The settings that apply handle ONLY when the monitor turns off and when the computer sleeps. This computer will go to sleep, as by design, but then wake itself up randomly (about 30 seconds after being asleep).

When the computer originally woke itself up, I ran 'power cfg -devicequery wake_armed' in CMD and it returned that HID Mouse Device was waking up the computer. Because of this, I went into device manager and disabled the 'Allow this device to wake up this computer' box in the mouse's driver settings. While there, I disabled the ability for the network to wake up the computer, and ENABLED the ability for the keyboard to wake up the computer (as we will need SOMETHING to wake it up when it goes to sleep!)

Next, I waited. And waited. And waited. The computer no longer went to sleep. Thinking that the only real change I made was disabled the NIC and mouse from waking the computer up, I unplugged the mouse and waited some more.

Sure enough, the computer then, successfully, went to sleep. It also woke itself up, again. After running 'Powercfg -devicequery wake_armed' showed that the HID Keyboard device woke the computer up (which is silly, because I never pressed any keys).

Next, I swapped out both the keyboard and mouse. Now, the computer will go to sleep when... Read more

Q: Wakes

My Dell PC randomly wakes up from sleep during the night. Since the machine is in my bedroom , this is a problem because we wake up too several times each night. This started 4 days ago after I installed Windows 8.
Problem did not happen previously with W7. Nothing else changed.
Contacted Microsoft support, the guy had me disable network card wakes up feature.
However problem is NOT solved
Last night woke up two times
How can I stop this?
For convenience I do not want to shut up the PC during the night, it's much easier to put it in hibernation mode.
Thank you


Perhaps wake-up timers are still enabled.

You can check this by going intp power management, expand Allow wake timers, choose Disable for both battery and plugged in when it is enabled.

Can you tell us if your computer wakes up when you move the mouse? It could be a faulty sensor or a jiggling desk.

I have a problem with my hp TouchSmart tm2-1090eg, running Windows 7 Ultimate (64 Bit).

My laptop wakes up at night at random times. Usually, I hibernate my laptop at night, but at the morning, my laptop is often running and draining battery.

Disabling the "allow timers to wake the computer" (German: "Zeitgeber zur Aktivierung zulassen")-setting in power options solves the problem, but, of course, disables all wake timers. (I want to use the timers, i.e. for Windows Media Center).

Therefore, I think that my problem is not a hardware or driver issue, but a software issue.

There's only one problem: I have no idea what software causes this. I thought I could catch it with "powercfg -waketimers", but I only get
C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -waketimers
Im System sind keine Aktivierungszeitgeber aktiv.
(translation: "There are no active wake timers.")
Does anyone have an idea what could cause this problem?

Thank you in advance,

Hey all,
So here's the deal: I have an HP Pavilion g series Laptop and a few weeks ago it started waking up on its own. Lately I've started unplugging all the stuff plugged-in the USBs before putting the laptop to sleep. It still ends up waking up in the middle of the bloody night. Someone suggested I disable the "allow wake timers" in power management but get this - whenever I disable it and then click "apply" and then "OK", when I go back to check it again the "allow wake timers" is enabled. I just can't disable it. And this just pisses me off! I mean, why the hell can't it stay disabled when I've selected "disable"? Why the hell does this stupid OS do whatever the hell it wants?! Sorry guys, but I'm incredibly pissed right now. So any help with both of those issues (the laptop waking up and the "allow wake timers" enabling itself) would be greatly appreciated.

Ever since I installed the Beta, then throughout various builds up to the current 64 rc 7100. My Studio xps wakes from sleep? Vista 64 premium did not cause this behavior. I've gone through my advanced sleep options and have them set to let the computer sleep even if streaming is present (not that is is when this happens) ....it is not a virus for the above mentioned reasons. All clean iso installs have produced same behavior. Being as I have no operative help I ask my fellow forum users.

Could be your network card, have a look at your network card driver

Every night I put my laptop to sleep but lately the laptop wakes up on it's own in the middle of the night every night. Anyone knows what might cause this phenomena ?

A:Help| Laptop Wakes Up On It's Own

Hello Partouch,

Going through the items in this tutorial may be able to help determine what is waking up your computer. A usual cause is the "Allow to wake computer" option in the network adapter's Power Management options in Device Manager.

Hope this helps,

This problem started a few months ago when I updated the video drivers on my NVIDIA card. What happens is that when the pc goes to sleep, either by my command or after timing out for inactivity, the pc will wake up when prompted by mouse or keyboard, but the monitors don't. I know the pc wakes because when tapping on keys or clicking the mouse button I will occasionally hear pings from the pc. I'm not convinced that the problem is NVIDIA's, but this does coincide with an updated driver of theirs.

Ultimately, in order to get my machine working again I have to press the power button and restart cold. Also, and I'm not sure if this is worth noting, upon cold start, my Kaspersky and clock gadgets, which are normally placed in the upper-right corner of the right monitor, display in the left monitor somewhere off-center.

I'm diligent with keeping drivers updated, but I really have no idea what to do now. I'll post the stuff that may be relevant:

Logitech wireless mouse M310 (unified w/ keyboard)
Logitech wireless Solar keyboard K750 (unified w/ mouse)
(2) LG monitors E2050
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 video card

Windows 7 Home Premium (service pack 1)
64-bit OS
AMD Phenom II x4 945 processor 3.00 GHz
8.00 GB ram

Thanks for any guidance on this problem, and happy Easter.

Hiya folks. So I'm running A Windows 8 HP Envy dv6 notebook with an i7-3630 QM processor. I've been finding that when I shut the laptop lid, it goes to sleep after a few seconds, I can't hear the hard drive running, and the light on the cover winks off. When I come back to it a few hours later, however, the HP light on the cover is back on and it's running. I can't quite figure out what's making it wake up while I'm gone. Any suggestions would be nice. Thanks!
Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong category.

A:Computer wakes up when not being used

Check 'Event History,' which logs application/system activity is the 1st place I would start looking.

Hello. I have a buddy who has two computers on a LAN. they are hooked up to a cable modem. Now he has seen his computer boot up all by itself and start running. If he disconnects his computer from the LAN(and cable modem) then the computer is fine and it doesn't boot up by itself. I asked him is he has the wake on LAN feature and he says no. I asked him if BIOS is setup for it. He said no. At this point I am out of ideas. Can it be a program which some one is running on his computer that can wake it up? I appreciate you input. LS

A:the computer wakes up

Is he really turning it off? Maybe it is in sleep or hibernate mode?

If it really is off, there must be a "wake on" something turned on. Perhaps it isn't LAN though. He should check BIOS for "wake on" anything, and turn them all off.

Of course, since you say it only happens when on the network, it has to be the NIC... some machines have "wake on" by IRQ though, and the IRQ of his NIC could be set to on.

Also, if the NIC has a WOL (wake on lan) cable plugged in, take it out - then there is no chance.
