Q: External mouse wakes Yoga 710 when lid is closed a...

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

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

A:Yoga 2 Pro wakes up when lid is closed

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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 Yoga 920, which replaced my Yoga 3 Pro, and I love it dearly. I have adjusted to the tiny up/down arrows OK. My only real complaint is that I keep activating the touchpad whilst typing, and since I have an external mouse that I use a lot, I don't really need the touchpad. I would like to automatically disable the touchpad whilst using the external mouse, at least when typing. I decreased the touchpad sensitivity but then the touchpad doesn't work that well when I don't use the external mouse. I can't find any place in Settings or Control Panel or any registry hacks that apply to this model of laptop that would help this. (I'm using to twiddling Synaptics settings but this laptop doesn't have any.) Thanks for any help.

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?

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?

Hi all,

I hope I've posted this in the right section.

I built my PC 3ish years ago and have just moved house. I took the opportunity to clear out the dust from inside and outside the case before I set my PC up in my new place. After I was done, the PC gets woken up after I have shut it down by the mouse or the keyboard. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have done the following:

-Checked all the power management settings in Windows, couldn't figure it out, so:
-Reinstalled Windows (Was on my list of things to do anyway)
-Checked the BIOS for the settings that relate to "wake on USB" - all are disabled
-Taken the CMOS battery out to reset

I just can't think what it might be.

Here are my specs:

Case: Antec Nine Hundred
PSU: Enermax Galaxy 1000W PSU
CPU: Intel Quad Core QX6700
MOBO: Asus p5e3 Premium Wifi @p
GFX: ATI Radeon HD 2900
OS: Win 7

Thanks, hope someone can help

I seem to have the same problem on 2 lenovo computers (but not on other computer brands).  One is T520 laptop on the other is a desktop whose model I don't remember.  Both running win7 64-bit with all updates applied. On both computers, I have went to the mouse properties and unchecked the box in the  power management tab that allows the mouse to wake the computer.  When I do this on my non-lenovo computers, it works as expected. But on both Lenovo computers, wiggling the mouse after suspension wakes both of them up!  I'm guessing that Lenovo has some other location where it overrides this setting, but I cannot find it..  Both mice are logitech optical mice (505 and a 305). I doubt it's related to the mice though. How do I stop the mice from waking these computers?  Thanks! Steve

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?

So this mouse uses its own USB dongle. When it is plugged, both Mouse compatible with HID technology and Combined USB device appear in the Device manager. I've set Allow waking computer to False for Mouse to prevent it from waking my laptop, but it is still happening. The Combined USB device does not have the tab with this option in properties. When I plug the dongle when computer is asleep does not wake it up. When asking for devices:
powercfg -devicequery -wake_armed
i get only laptop keyboard (HID standard keyboard device). When i display lastwake, i get:

Before I reset the system it would wake up from either a key press or a mouse movement. It now wakes up only from the keyboard. The l.e.d. beneath the mouse is not lit until a key press is made.

How can I enable wake-up from either again?

A:Windows 8.1 wakes up only with keyboard, not mouse.

What kind of mouse is it? Could it be you had the specific mouse driver installed before? One example may be Logitech.

If you reloaded Windows chances are it is running the generic MS mouse driver.

Edit: also check your power saver settings. It may have a setting "allow this device to wake" or "shut down this device to save power" etc.. for the mouse.

Hi all. I've been struggling for weeks in finding a solution to this very annoying behavior of my new desktop pc running W10 Pro x64. I have successfully activated hibernate mode (S4), yet whenever the PC is hibernated a shake of the mouse or the press of any key on the keyboard just wakes and turns on the PC. Needless to say I do not want this to happen.

So far I have done many many tries and read all the tutorial on this forum. I can try to do a short summary of what I have learned so far:

Hibernate (S4) works as confirmed by the fact that when it's waken up, the PC goes through the POST phase of the boot before loading W10. In addition a powercfg /a gives the following output

C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /a
The following sleep states are available on this system:
Standby (S3)
Hybrid Sleep
Fast Startup
Sleep (S3) works too. Although it seems to have the same effects on the hardware (turns off the CPU fan), the waking up it's much quicker, without POST. In addition, here's the log from Windows event viewer:

When I open my laptop lid to use the computer again, the mouse (not an external) does not respond appropriately. It alternates between a magnifying glass and the normal cursor arrow. I cannot control at all where it goes on my screen. I've tried right clicking to see if there is a menu to choose from and checking the settings to see if there is something there that would cause this behavior and cannot find anything.

I have to shut the laptop own by hitting the Windows logo on the keyboard and using the arrow keys to restart.

I have a Surface Pro with latest updates installed (as of yesterday). When the machine sleeps, then upon wakeup the mouse cursor is not visible although it's apparently there as I can see things on the screen highlight as I swipe the touchpad. BTW, I have
a MS wedge mouse connected via BT, but the cursor is invisible regardless of whether I've got that device attached or not.
I'm generally able to restore the cursor by bringing up the lockscreen (Win-L) and logging back in -- but this sometimes doesn't do the trick.  Second fix is to go change a mouse setting (any setting apparently), then set it back.

I recall having this problem when I first got the machine, but it went away after one of the updates.  Now it's back and is a real pain.
Is there a PERMANENT fix to this problem?

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!

Dear community, I'm using a Lenovo X1 Carbon 6gen laptop with Windows 10 and Lenovo X1 Wireless Touch Mouse is connected to the laptop by Bluetooth. The devices are paired well, Lenovo Mouse Suite is installed too. Unfortunately, I faced with the following problem: when the laptop is in the slipping mode, the mouse can wake up it, so if I just switch on/off the mouse, the laptop wakes up. I'm a bit paranoid the laptop can be waked up at a carrying book and can overheat itself. I've checked all devices in the device manager and see that the "Allow this device to wake the computer" button is always off and even disabled (in the gray). The amazing program "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" returns only "Thunderbolt(TM) Controller - 15D2" (but the laptop is undocked, I have no Thunderbolt yet). When the laptop has been waked up by the mouse, the "powercfg -lastwake" returns "Wake History Count - 0" only. Do I right understand some Lenovo drivers overload the Windows device management functionality and takes control of the devices such as mouse, keyboard and so on and allow the device to wake up the laptop? If so, how can I disable this and protect my laptop from being occasionally waked up? Thank you a lot!Pavel.

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.

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.

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

I don't have my Lenovo TB3 dock with me, so the following issue may not be relevant to your users: I use an old Microsoft USB-C Continuum Dock, and your scenario doesn't work quite right on that one: hitting power with the lid closed, the laptop goes to sleep, but then waking it with the power button, the monitor connected to the Continuum Dock doesn't receive signal. The only fix is to open the X1 Yoga, wake it, close the lid (sleeps the system), and waking it again, after which things work fine again. Maybe a graphics driver bug or a Continuum dock firmware bug.  Maybe someone with ... Read more

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.

It sounds like a device is having a problem entering the low-power state.  Look in the event log

Hello! Got a weird issue with a Yoga 700-14ISK in my fleet that started late last week. It will no longer charge if the lid is closed and/or if the unit is powered off.  The only way the unit will charge is if the lid is open and the unit is powered on. I've checked everything I can possibly think of and can't find a solution.  Has anyone here seen anything like this before? Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure I've discovered a bug after a graphics driver update last week. I can duplicate the problem using the following scenario:
Latitude E7250 with Intel 5500 graphics, Dell simple port replicator docking station. Any monitor, plugged into DisplayPort on dock. Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Intel graphics driver downloaded from the Dell drivers and support page (filename Video_Driver_49H49_WN32_20.19.15.4377_A03.EXE).
Laptop running in dock with lid closed, external display only. Remove laptop from Docking station, open lid, use laptop. Close lid, wait for laptop to sleep. Put laptop in dock, leave lid closed, press power button on dock to wake laptop. Monitor turns on with black screen and a mouse. The mouse appears to be able to move off the lefthand side of the screen, you can move it off a distance and it takes a little while to return to the screen when you move the mouse back to the right. ie it seems like the laptop thinks the monitor has a display arrangment with this black screen on the far right, although it's the only monitor.
At this point there are a couple of ways you can get the external display back to normal. 1) open the lid, the system returns to mirrored or extended display as expected, close the lid, re-wake laptop with the power button on the dock and it comes up on the external monitor normally. Or, 2) power off the monitor, wait a few seconds, power the monitor back on - it seems to detect displays and retu... Read more

Hi guys,

New here, so I hope I'm not out of line asking for help, and that I'm asking correctly. I've exhausted my own ideas on this but the problem is driving me IN.SANE.

When using an external (USB) mouse with my ASUS Win7 laptop, the mouse randomly lifts up and re-clicks while clicking or while dragging (despite the button remaining consistently depressed), resulting in selection of the wrong objects, inadvertent double-clicks, and incorrect dragging. From what I can tell, this affects only the left click and not the right.

Laptop touchpad - no problem. Everything works fine with the built-in touchpad.
Another mouse - same problem. These are wired mice, so it's not a battery or connection issue.
Another USB port - same problem in all four. There's no visible issue with the motion of the mouse/cursor, so it seems to be communicating OK via USB.
Safe Mode - no problem, from what I can tell. The wired USB mouse seems to click and drag as normal in Safe Mode.
Mouse Settings - no effect. Adjusting the click/double-click/drag settings doesn't seem to change anything.
System Resources - no effect. Clicking/dragging seems to show the same results in the RAM/CPU monitors whether I'm having the problem (with the mouse) or performing the same actions without the problem (with the trackpad).

What haven't I ruled out? What else could be causing the issue?

The problem came on suddenly after about a year, but I... Read more

A:Mouse problem: Any external mouse. Touchpad OK. Mouse OK in Safe Mode.

Hey mate, and welcome,

Possible problem:
1. Mouse itself is bad. Either the button itself or internally
2. Driver is not at its best

Going to the mouse manufacture website to download the most recent driver for your Windows 7, either 32 or 64 bit. If it doesn't work, try without any driver (so that windows driver takes over).

Okay .. this should be do-able .. but somehow I am struggling to set this up. Here is my situation. I have a T61 (7661-KD7) to which I have connected an external monitor and a Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse.  All I want to be able to do is this. Open the lid of my T61, power it on .. and then close the lid. So that I can continue to use my laptop .. but use ONLY the external monitor, the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse. (I do NOT need the lid to be open after I power up the laptop) Anyone using a similar setup ? eb   

A:External Monitor Only - w/ T61 Lid Closed ?

This is rather easy (Windows XP, Vista should be similar if not same procedure) Click on the Start Menu, then click on RUN. Type in powercfg.cpl and press OK After this click on the Advanced TAB. You should see an option that lists When I close the lid of my portable computerShutdown (Initial setting...) Set it to "Do Nothing" You can then power on your notebook with it being completely closed provided you don't need fingerprint authentication.  Hope it helps.

Hi. I often use my X1 Yoga OLED with the OneLink+ Dock and external monitor, keyboard and mouse. Is it save to use it with closed lid or might the heat be harmful to the screen?

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

A:ThinkPad Yoga 12 - Ghost clicks when lid closed an...

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.
