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.)

Today I installed a Win10 1809 on a X1Y3 and did a sleepstudy after Driver or windows updates and after parameter change or program install.It started out pretty bad, the usual. I was affected by a battery drain off 2000 mW/h during the first week after purchase, the machine was on 1803 Home. After some fiddling it seemed to get better and this is the first time I see something that good. The pc has nothing connected to its external ports and I shut off Bluetooth because of the mouse. Let windows decide what to do with  WLAN connectivity while I left WIFI on and connected to my router. There is a SDXC card and a WWAN LTE card, each in their slot. WWAN disconnected. 293mW/h, if it holds I am gonna throw a party. Don't hold my breath though. Have a feeling that Windows changed as I dont have the fast startup and hibernate, etc, options anymore in the balanced powerplan settings. You know, those that were grayed out till you clicked on specific phrase to be able to change them. This option is gone now in my 1809 Pro version.It was from before Microsoft pulled it. Ok, I closed the lid and will see what gives later on. Will come back later. Ciao.

I have used Yoga Gen 1 and 2 and they were ok. Yoga Gen 3 came to me with a great disappointment after I have used it for 3 months.  First, the fingerprint reader is awful as 9 times out of 10 failed.  Either it detects my fingerprint after almost 3 seconds or it does not detect anything. Second, the LTE is awful too. When I use the LTE function and after I leave my Yoga idle for a while, the LTE function just disappears.  I have to re-start my Yoga to get the LTE function re-activated again.  Third, the power drain is astonishing.  I remember when I used Yoga Gen 1 or 2, there was virtually no power drain when it was left idle.  However, for the Gen 3, if I do not turn off the power, the bettery will be completely drained after a night's sleep.I expect the newer generation comes with improvement but disappointedly it is the contrary!!

As a new owner of an X1 Carbon 6th gen I love the hardware, really light and thin and excellent screen!However I cannot get used to the modern standby (S0i3) that this laptop uses. It no longer supports the normal (S3) standby which causes me a lot of confusion and trouble.Everytime I use the laptop to complete unattended tasks (number crunching, VM's or a backup) the screen turns off after a while (as set in the power & sleep options in Windows). But somehow the laptop also goes to sleep automatically when the screen is turned off, even though I have the sleep option under power & sleep setting to Never on AC. After some research online I found that this is a "feature" from modern standby. The laptop makes it look like it goes to sleep (the power button light is pulsing slowly) but it is actually in a low power state that is designed to make it work more like a smartphone always on device. The advantages should be that your email, music etc continue during this low power state. This is all very nice if it would work as intented, however it appears that only certain Microsoft apps support this low power state. My usual email program (EmClient) crashes everytime the laptop goes to this low power state, my backups (even Windows own) fail, my VM's stop, my number crunching apps stop etc...So basically this laptop cannot run any unattended tasks, since you have to move the mouse/keyboard every few minutes to prevent it from turning the screen off which causes the low powe...

There are reports of extreme throttling on X1 Carbon Gen6 (reviews on Lenovo reviews US page, or reddit). It seems X1C6 is limited to 23W/29W TDP, while X1 Yoga Gen 3 is limited to 44W TDP for short and long term bursts.  It makes little sense as physically X1C6 cooler looks bigger thus thould be able to handle longer/harder loads. Can we hope that it will be fixed in the nearest future? Or is there an actual reason for lowering X1C6 TDP, so people who expect 8650U to run at 44W should just look into buying X1Y3?

Hi In the Bios, I set "Always On USB" to disabled. According to the description, this should "disable USB ports during low power states [standby, hibernate or power-off]." Contrary to this description, all USB ports remain powered during standby (S3, Suspend-to-Ram). I tried with USB ports on both sides of the device. Any ideas how to solve this problem? Regards,--RalpH

I'm thinking of creating a C drive image with Macrium Reflect and replacing the C drive contents on the replacement.  Back when, that might have led to problems with drivers and such, but Windows has gotten more flexible.  I've seen references to the newest installs being very free of bloatware, but I think tidied up the gen2 install  pretty well.  Am I overlooking an issue?  Thanks (And a thanks to Lenovo, particularly Andy, for the help in getting a replacement (screen banding problem).)

As of November 28th, Modern Standby is completely broken on my X1Y3. It's consuming a ton of power - 3W+ continuously. The culprit is "WDF Power References for USB Root Hub (USB 3.0) (USB\ROOT_HUB30&VID8086&PID9D2F&REV0021), Driver:USBHUB3", but I can't seem to find what actual device is causing it. The Synaptics fingerprint reader and the SD card reader don't seem to be the problem at first glance. However, the root hub causes 100% active time, and so there's no way for the computer to go into a lower sleep state. This makes Modern Standby unusable. Anyone else find this issue? As a quick request, please don't use this thread to bash Modern Standby. I know its limitations, frustrations, and issues - this is certainly one of them. However, I'm more interested in finding if someone knows what driver or hardware might be causing the issue from their own experience. Thanks!

A:X1Y3 USB device breaking Modern Standby

Quick update: The culprit seems to be Windows 10 update KB4467682. I had gotten a BIOS update on November 26th, but Modern Standby worked fine. After installing KB4467682, Modern Standby has never worked again, except for maybe once, as far as the reports can show.

Hi, Looking to purchase the Aspire R5-471T.  However, want it to support Win10 Modern Standby (S0 Low Power Idle).  This is the modern variant of connected standby/instango and allows notifications to be recieved while the device is asleep and for Alarm apps to wake the laptop. Looked at one of the laptops today, and ran the command powercfg /a to check the supported sleep states.  Says that S0 low power idle is not supported by the firmware. I tested a number of current Skylake based laptops from HP and Toshiba, and appears none of them are currently supporting this sleep state. As I understand it, the hardware in this laptop should support this sleep state.  I understand that a bunch of OEMs may have disabled this mode because Windows 10 didn't support it properly.  However, Surface Pro 4 has recently had its sleep issues fixed, so assume this is now working in Windows 10. Would like to know if the R5-471T is capable of supporting this sleep mode, and if it is, is Acer is going to issue a firmware update to support the Modern Standly sleep state ?

I experienced a feature on my friends laptop called Modern Standby.  It adds the ability to go into and resume from something called "Modern Standby".  The sleep state in older PCs was S3 but in this new model it is S0i3, which Microsoft refers to as Modern Standby and Intel calls S0 Low Power Idle - I found technical details thru research but I could not determine which new PCs have this feature. So, with this Modern Standby feature enabled, I can wake her Laptop from Sleep by saying "Hey Cortana".  This even works with her laptop lid down.I think this is a great feature but I was surprised I did not know about it, when I was doing research to purchase a new laptop this summer. How can a consumer buying from retail know which Lenovo Laptops support this capability ? Thanks,Paul Review

My X1 Tablet wil no longer react to the power button, meaning I cannot press it to put the tablet to sleep. I've checked all the usual settings in win10 (power and sleep) and it's set to make my tablet sleep no matter which button is pressed. What's worse, if I put the tablet to sleep from the start button, then the power button cannot wake it up. However, if the tablet is powered off, the power button works fine, so it seems to be a software issue. I've all the various firmwares, windows 10 is up to date as of today and the BIOS settings doesn't seem to have any options for this. Has anyone else experienced this and did you find a solution?

Hey everyone I am out of ideas for this issue, I've never had a computer issue that I wasn't able to fix until now and it has got me stumped. The problem is windows standby, which I make use of especially on this computer which I got for college and needs to enter standby a lot (in and out of class, library, etc) What happens is that when there is less than 25% battery remaining (which for this system is still about 2 hours) and I enter standby mode either by closing the lid or using the keyboard shortcut or start menu option, the screen turns off and then the entire system freezes. It doesn't enter standby (fan still runs, lights still on) and if I try to get it back out of standby it won't wake up regardless of what keys are pressed or actions I take. The only thing left to do is force a reset by holding the power button or waiting for Windows to crash on its own (usually about 5 mins) and then the machine shuts off.

I've updated everything, drivers, software etc. Checked every power setting I can think of in Windows and in the Thinkpad power manager, checked that there are no conflicting programs, and done a few other things. Just really out of ideas and thinking that the only option is a full clean reinstall of Windows, which I was hoping to be able to avoid. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate your time and effort.

Thanks!

Hello, Last week my X250 installed a significant Windows 10 update and then a BIOS update. Since then, frequently, but I don't think always, when I restart the laptop after it had been in standby the machine actually restarts. When you open the lid, the green power light in the power button flashes rapidly and then the machine reboots, with the obvious consequence that open documents are lost etc. I cannot be absolutely certain that this is linked to one of the updates, but I have had the machine for just under a year and this had never happened before. It is not a battery issue as this shows a good charge level after a restart from standby. Has anyone come across a similar problem? Many thanks in advance for any advice. Paul
