Yoga 900 waking from sleep

Q: Yoga 900 waking from sleep

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. Is there some way to fix this problem? If not, can an update be released to fix the issue? If I need to clarify something about the problem, please let me know.

Preferred Solution: Yoga 900 waking from sleep

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.)

A:Yoga 900 waking from sleep

Hello, I know there have been BIOS updates in the past to address this issue, but my laptop still occassionally wakes from sleep with the lid closed. Is anyone else having this issue? If not, is there a setting I may be looking over that would fix this problem?

Hello, My Yoga 900 has woken from sleep in my backpack multiple times. I have tried to find a setting to disable the keyboard while the computer is asleep, but I have not been able to find one. I have asked technical support about this problem and they too do not have a solution. I requested the agent I spoke with to pass along my request to the tech department and he agreed to do so. Is there some existing way for me to solve this issue?

Anyone else having a problem with it not waking up from sleep? I put it to sleep, the screen goes black and the keyboard is still lit up. I try to press the Windows logo on the screen or the power button and nothing happens. I feel the vibration but that is it. What I find funny is that I can still turn on and off the backlit keyboard.

A:Yoga 2 Pro not waking up from sleep

Yeah, so it eventually turns off on its own to the point where the Windows logo below the monitor no longer vibrates when pushed and I have to power on the machine. Might just do a restore and see what happens from there...

I have an issue with my Thinkpad Yoga (20CD). Sometimes after I have left my Yoga unattended. I come back and find that it's on (red light on) but screen is black, but nothing happends when moving mouse or pressing keys. I believe this is happens with regards to sleep mode. I still have some analysis to do wether it happens when power is connected or not, external monitor is connected or not. I have installed all the latest drivers from lenovos website.

A:Thinkpad Yoga, not waking up after sleep

I have a new ThinkPad Yoga and when it is running on battery power if the screen goes to sleep after five minutes it will not wake up.  I can press the power button and see the LED above the I flash slowly flash like it is in sleep mode but if I try to wake it up the screen will not come back on.  I am forced to press and hold the power button to force shut it down and them power it back on.  Has anyone else seen this issue?  I am currently going to download the Intel version of the HD video driver and see if that fixes the problem.

The Yoga 900s refuses to come back from sleep in 90% of the time. The power led is on but the screen stays black. I have to force shutdown and start the Yoga. After a couple of time doing this Windows will end up in KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE and than no longer boots. After doing a reset Windows works again for about 3 months and than the whole thing starts over. Latest drivers are installed .

I have a Y2P which I upgraded to Windows 10 a few months ago.  I have updated all the drivers and the BIOS, done the registry fix for the DPTF driver discussed here to fix degraded performance in non-laptop mode, and turned off adaptive brightness.  Most of my use is plugged in with the machine in stand mode, with a second monitor and BT mouse and BT keyboard. After doing the DPTF driver fix, I noticed that a few times when I was away from my desk, the machine rebooted spontaneously due to a critical error which seemed to be from overheating, so I set the power mode to sleep after 10 minutes idle.  Most of the time, now, it has no difficulty waking up.  But so far twice when I have woken the machine, the primary monitor is off, and can't be found by any setting or control panel, and the auxilliary monitor behaves as though it is the primary one.  This can be fixed by rebooting or by unplugging the second monitor, and then plugging it in again. Also, a couple of times now, when the machine wakes, the primary monitor is very dim.  The first time it happened, I went into settings and made it brighter.  But when it happened today, despite my increasing brightness to 100% (through the keyboard, through the display settings, through whatever I could find) the screen stayed very dim.  I finally rebooted, and the screen returned to normal. Does anyone have any suggestions for keeping these things from happenin...

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

Greetings, I just bought Lenovo Yoga 330. It's been great, but i have one strange problem. When I wake the laptop from sleep, the CPU clock is stuck on 1.1 GHz (Which is its base clock). It won't go to turbo clock which is supposedly 2.6 GHz. The only solution i know is to reboot the windows, and the cpu clock is normal again.I know with ssd rebooting is fast, but still you need to wait some programs to start up. I'm a teacher, there are no breaks between my classes, i really need sleep mode to quickly use my laptop between classes.I know programs such Throttlestop from techpowerup can set the CPU to static 2.6 GHz, but it's not good for battery life. I need the dynamic clock, so the clock will low if the usage is low, and the clock will throttle up if the usage is higher.I am using windows 10 64 bit which was preinstalled during purchase. All the drivers are up to date, the BIOS also is the latest. I am wondering if lenovo team is already address this problem, i really hope they will release new BIOS soon. Sorry for my english, it's not my primary language.

I just got this Mokin TB3 hub: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CV4F53P/ref=cfb_at_prodpg This is the second one I've tried - first I got a "Lenovo" (?) of the same type (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07919GQ4R/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) but that one just stopped providing power to the laptop after 2 weeks. The new hub is working fine, except that when I put the laptop to sleep, while it is plugged into the hub, it wakes up every ~17 seconds and makes the "device disconnected" and then "device connected" sounds, shows the login screen, and then goes back to sleep immediately.  If I unplug the ethernet cable, it stops waking up, so I assume it's something to do with the ethernet adapter in the hub.  Any ideas about how to troubleshoot or fix this?

Hello everybody! As my post says my Yoga is not connecting to the internet upon startup, and after long periods of sleep. It does connect to the network immediately and will say 'No internet, secured', and will stay this way for a minute or more, or I have to manually disconnect and reconnect to the network. Troubleshooting problems from the context menu gives up before even trying. The strange thing is if I sleep my computer for around ten minutes it reconnects immediately, if it's a few hours or over night the problem occurs. I just cannot figure out what is causing this. Everything is completely up to date including the BIOS version and Windows 10.I've checked for the latest drivers on Lenovo's website, and I've looked for more up to date Atheros Wireless drivers. I have also tried rolling the drivers back, and at another point allowed Windows 10 to update the drivers. I have even done a complete wipe and reinstall of Windows 10, the problem has spanned over multiple major Windows updates, but I do not have this problem on any other operating systems. I have the Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A Wireless Netword Adapter in the Yoga 720-15IKB, and I have made sure it is not going to sleep to save power in the power management tab of device properties. I have also tried toggling on and off all of the services and startup items pertaining to network connectivity, and have tried disabling Windows Defender. I've run SFC /scannow in the command prompt.Any ideas ... Read more

This has been a problem that I've been having since the original trackpad driver Lenovo put out when Windows 10 was officially released.  I've seen other people mention they have the same problem, but there's still no solution.  Problem: After the Yoga S1 goes to sleep or hibernates, the trackpad doesn't work.  The cursor doesn't show up on the screen until I move the TrackPoint or if I have an external mouse connected.  The only thing thing functional is the trackpoint and physically pushing the trackpad for right and left click.  Gestures, tap to click, etc. do not work.  The problem has been consistent with every driver version up to and including the latest that Lenovo put out on 9/7.   The only way to get the trackpad working again is to uninstall the synaptics driver, reboot, reinstall driver, reboot again.  Probem returns after waking up the computer after going to sleep or hibernate.   I'm forced to use driver version directly from synaptics.  The trackpad works perfectly, but the right and middle buttons (at the top of the trackpad) for the trackpoint do not work since it's just a generic driver.   Lenovo has put out at least two new drivers since this problem has popped up  and others have complained about it on this forum and still hasn't been fixed.

A:Waking From Sleep ? ? ?

I would try making the keyboard the only device that is allowed to wake the computer. Because your mouse works by detecting motion, it is far more likely to send a false signal and wake up the computer than your keyboard.

My PC is no longer waking from sleep by pressing a keyboard button which used to work. I have to restart the PC using the power on button - then I get the a critical error Event 41 - The System has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. I also get error Event 6008 The previous shutdown at .... was unexpected.

I've run SFC /SCANNOW and that's fine, the keyboard is set to wake the PC, USB selective suspend is disabled, the PC is not allowed to power off USB devices and link state power management is off.

I can't think of any other software changes to try. Is there a diagnostic tool or Fixit program to help solve this problem?

My XFX PSU is playing up taking 10-20secs before the +5VSB signal appears on initial power on. Could this be an issue preventing wake from sleep? Note the PC reboots straight away from a failed wake from sleep as soon I press the power on button - but then it logs the errors Event 41 & Event 6008 noted above.

A:BSOD from waking up from sleep

Hello abhishek33.

A stop 0x9088 is somehow common with the intel storage drivers. So I would suggest you to get rid of intel matrix storage. First uninstall Intel? Matrix Storage Manager from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
It will open the "computer management" window.
Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
Next, do you encrypt data using Axantum AxCrypt? As it is a storage related issue, uninstall it too, as least as a test.

Let us know the results.

Hey This is a two part question in case my problem is related? My PC protection wasn't on for a period of time, when I figured it out I went to microsoft and tried the onecare scan, it wouldn't complete the scan. I'm wondering if I had spyware or a virus change my system (nothing shows up with any scan). I've had problems ever since, my most recent and very irritating is if I am online or wake up my pc from sleep mode, the fan kicks on loudly, and my pc shuts off! I have a Gateway Quadcore, just a year old, I've tried a scan with them, their scan said my fan was fine. Gateway also suggested to reload my Hard drive? I haven't tried that yet, and don't know how that would help? Could someone please tell me what causes a pc to just shut down, could this be an infection, or hardware problems? And if I were to wipe my pc clean the way it was installed when I received it, could this help, is there too much on my hard drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! THANKS

A:PC shuts off by itself, while using or waking from sleep more

If there is a software problem, or a virus problem - wiping the hard drive clean and starting over would most likely fix it.
But, this would wipe out everything on your hard drive - then you'd have to reinstall Vista, then reinstall the Drivers and Applications from the Drivers and Applications disk that the Gateway system should've asked you to make.

This is sort of overkill if you're just looking to remove a virus/cure a software problem - but it is the quickest way to rule out all sorts of software/virus issues.

Good day everyone. The BSOD keeps coming up when I wake my laptop from sleep. I'm not sure why. It has just recently started. I'm not sure, but it may only be when its on battery. I've done tons of research and i dont know what to do now. I ran sfc /scannow several times. All times it found corrupt files, but could not repair them. I would love to post the Cbs.log, but for some reason it won't let me. Please, if there is any help you can give, it would be of great value. Let me know if there is anything else i need to tell you.

I've been getting a BSOD often when waking up my computer. It only ever happens when waking from sleep. It's been happening since I built the computer but has been happening a lot more frequently recently. I've checked all drivers and they're all fine. Can somebody look at the files and let me know if it's an obscure driver issue or a hardware problem? Thank you!

A:BSOD when waking from sleep

Hi 411YD.

You are having multiple bugcheck codes but none of them are showing any finite probable cause.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Now run the computer. Does it still BSOD during waking up? If so ... go for the following ......

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If there is no error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Read other 3 answers

I have my computer set to go to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity which it does. However, after about 15 minutes of being asleep, it wakes itself up. Then, after 30 minutes of inactivity, it goes back to sleep. And so on and on.

How do I find out what is causing the machine to wake up so I can fix this endless loop of waking and sleeping?

A:Computer waking from sleep

In the Event Viewer, under Windows logs > System, there will be entries relating to the power off/on of the computer.

Wake Source - Read Event Viewer Log

Look for entries with the source, "Power-Troubleshooter". There should be one that will say "The system has resumed from sleep", along with a timestamp. It should also have a "Wake Source" - that is where you will hopefully see what caused the wake-up.

I attached a little screen shot to demonstrate.

Hey guys, every now and then after waking my computer up from sleep it goes straight to BSOD, it used to happen maybe once a week, but it seems it been consistently happening the past few days, I have it set to automatically go to sleep after a set period of inactivity.

SFC Found no problems with system files.

It started probably about 6 months ago, and never bothered me cause it was only once, but its becoming a nuisance, I've got my minidumps uploaded in a .rar on dropbox


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Zac.

Trend Micro contributes to BSOD. Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advance Mode while uninstalling which allows leftover registry removal:Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

I am having a BSOD when waking up my computer from sleep. It seems to be random, sometimes it crashes sometimes it doesn't. It has been happening for quite a while, and I can't seem to find a solution.

Also, when I ran the tool it didn't make a zip file, however there was a SF_DEBUG folder with all the dmp files and txt files with the information, so I zipped and attached that.

After waking up the computer from sleep, I see either a lock screen (for less than 5 seconds) followed by a BSOD, or a BSOD immediately.
(Note: my display needs some time to exit Standby mode, so it can be that "immediate BSOD" is actually "lock screen followed by BSOD within a few seconds".)
It does not matter if sleep was initiated manually from the Start->Power menu, or occurred automatically after a long inactivity period.

The BSOD screen contains this useful text:

OS: Windows 10 x64
Original installed OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
Is the OS an OEM version: no, Windows 7 was installed from a disk, but the key+ISO download that I've purchased were quite cheap, so the key might be OEM.
The hardware is about 6-7 years old, except for the SSD and the video card.
Windows 7 was installed in early December 2015, then upgraded to Windows 10 before the New Year.
I have performed a "clean upgrade" to Win10, no reinstallation since then.

This is a desktop.
CPU: AMD Phenom X4
Video Card: GTX 960
MotherBoard: MSI 790GX-G65 (MS-7576)
Power Supply: Chieftec APS450
System Manufacturer: assembled myself.

Additional potentially important information:
- I have a Logitech USB webcam plugged into the display's USB port;
when OS goes to sleep, monitor goes into standby, and its USB ports get disconnected;
- I also have a Universal Logitech Receiver plugged into the same monitor's 2nd USB port.

I would appreciate help with... Read more

A:BSOD after waking up from sleep

I have followed the instructions (except that there was no "Concurrency Stress Test" item in the verifier), now booted with verifier enabled, quit all running applications (including nvidia tray icon, skype, dropbox) and attempted sleep/wake. There was no BSOD. Nvidia tray icon re-appeared.

Will keep verifier enabled for now, will do more sleep/wake testing tomorrow.

Good day genttleman,i need some help over here

ive just bought new mobo ASUS p8z77-m
and somehow one major issues occur.

once the display sleep,i cant seems to wake it up
my fan hdd led still there spinning like normal but the display remain black
while the monitor led just blinking as it has lost power with cpu

i doubt this had to do with software since it happens with 32 bit before i try with 64
googling result left me with bios setting and certain method which also leave me with dead end such as

- going to device manager>right click usb root hub properties>power management> allow this device to wake up the computer
but that choice is greyed out. i lost there

- playing with various windows power management setting such as disable hybrid sleep.disable usb suspended with no avail

- go to bios > AMP> enable wake up from PCI,PCIE but result still the same

ive yet trying to enable ErP from bios considering the only available option is S4+S5 or S5 but theres no option of S3?
or did i miss something there because S3 is the option that i want

- using powercfg command line to enable waking up device yet failed too

and most of the time,when screen becomes black ,i have to press reset button and it will reboot with windows did not shutdown properly yadi yada.
this is distressing

any PC guru here can shed some light about this, much much appreciated . Thanks


A:PC not waking up after sleep, (Win 7 64bit)

Update the Display driver. First run all Windows Updates (a performance update might also help) after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3).

If that doesn't help import the latest driver from the PC or device's Support Downloads webpage.

If those don't help then work through these Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums .

Check the Performance log for clues at time of sleep, establish a clean boot, do the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

If all else fails you can determine the cause with certainty by Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums

My XPS 15 9550 tends to wake from sleep instantly or after a short while. I find this particularly inconvenient if I find it hot in the backpack. It occurs on battery, power adapter, and powered via the WD15 dock.

Now let me start by saying that I don't actually see the bluescreen, I see a black screen. Some times my PC will wake fine and let me sign in with no problems, other times when I attempt to wake it I can see my keyboard leds flicker. It flickers when the PC restarts but the fans stay on. It'll let me log in fine with no error messages. Sometimes my PC will go black and i'll get the notification from a crashed video driver that has recovered. I had these problems when I ran windows 7 as well. I believe it is a hardware issue. When I first build the PC I had problems with bluescreening all the time. I changed BIOS settings and it worked fine, but ASUS changed my BIOS settings into performance mode and I'm started having problems again. Just let me know if you find anything in the files, thank you.

I just got a refurbished Dell XPS 18 (1810). When I put it into sleep mode (either by pressing power button or selecting sleep through the Windows GUI) it goes to sleep for about a second and then wakes up again.
I've followed some recommendations on other posts/sites to turn of wake times, make sure that no devices are set on the Power Management tab in device manager to wake etc. But seems to make no difference. Occasionally it goes to sleep for a few minutes, but then automatically wakes.But usually it just wakes up within a couple of seconds.
Doesn't matter if it is on battery or mains power. Does the same
Is this some known bug/setting in Intel quick startup?

Not sure if this is the right forum...

Sometimes my PC has trouble waking up from sleep. This morning, for example, the mouse and the keyboard wouldn't work. I had to press the 'on' button to wake it up. The log in screen appears but no mouse or keyboard to use to type in password or to restart. Other times its just the mouse. Unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in doesn't help either. Same goes for keyboard.

There have also been times when the PC takes up to ten minutes to wake up. That's happened 3 times.

Other times, maybe half, it works perfectly.

Really have no idea what's causing this. All help welcome!

My desktop PC randomly wakes up from sleep, by itself. I have tried many things, but I have been unsuccessful in preventing it. I'm starting to wonder if I have some type of virus, even though I'm pretty sure that it is being caused by Windows Update.
After my PC wakes up, I run the command line: powercfg /lastwake. I get this reply:
Owner: [SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\svchost.exe (SystemEventsBroker)
Owner Supplied Reason: Windows will execute 'NT TASK\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\AUScheduledInstall' scheduled task that requested waking the computer.
I have disabled Windows Update from waking my computer in GPEdit. I have disabled the routine maintenance, that Windows 8 runs, from waking my computer. I have disabled wake timers in Power options. I have disabled my NIC from waking my computer. I've ran virus scans with Norton and Malewarebytes, but they don't find anything. I don't know what else to try.
Please help!

A:Desktop PC keeps waking up from sleep

If I hibernate my Windows 8.1 PC, I get the same behaviour unless I switch off at the wall as well once it's in hibernation.
I think it might be something to do with "Wake on LAN" (WOL):
Perhaps Windows Update is causing it to see if there are any updates.
I'd be curious to know whether this topic gets any more replies ... I've not looked deeply into it, I just try to remember to power down at the mains after I've hibernated the PC ... that stops it reliably enough!

Hi, I have HP xw8200 workstation with dual 3.0GHZ xeon procs and 6gig of ram that throws a BSOD more often than not when waking from sleep. The system board, Scsi drives, and both procs have been replace under warranty. When loading xp 64 bit using the quick restore disks,the sytem is quite a bit more stable but still throws the ocassional BSOD. However, with Win 7 64 bit, it happens quite often. Other weird things happen too: Gadgets stopped working, get "RPC service failed to start" when logging in. Itunes stops working. I swapped out the nvidia quadro fx3450 with another card and it made no difference. I got a f4, and 7e stop errors in the last two days. I've attached the dmp file. I hope someone can interpret the dmp for me...Thanks a bunch
