T480 not waking from sleep

Q: T480 not waking from sleep

Lenovo ThinkPad T480, Product Number 20L5CTO1WW, BIOS N24ET48W 1.23, Windows 10 64 bit. All updates distributed by Lenovo and Windows are applied. No unique, custom settings to power, sleep, battery, etc. The laptop will wake from sleep about 75% of the time. The rest of the time, the Windows 10 log in screen appears but neither the keyboard nor mouse respond. I always have to hard restart in those instances. There is also no consistency regarding the occurrences, such as whether it occurs when the computer is on battery before sleep and then power after sleep, or battery before and after sleep, or power before sleep and battery after sleep, and power before sleep and power after sleep. Under all such instances, I have seen this issue occur where waking from sleep stalls and requires a hard restart. Thanks for the guidance on how to address the issue.

Preferred Solution: T480 not 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.)

Hi, I would like my PC NOT to wake up when I open my lid and at the same time going to sleep when I close it? I had this feature on my previous HP laptop running Win7. Now I'm running Win 10 and wonder if that;s rather a matter of operating system or the PC itself? Regards,Marcin

I have my laptop set to hibernate when closing the lid and starting yesterday (had this for about a month), upon waking up, I get stuck on the windows boot manager. Even if I exit out from it, it comes back to this screen. The only workaround is to force a reboot. I'm recent with both lenovo and windows update and ran lenovo diagnostics but everything comes out ok. Reset the BIOS settings to default as well. But to no avail. Setting the boot priority to my SSD first does nothing as well.

Hey all I have a T480 that I have had for about a year (love it).  I also use aSonnet eGPU Breakway Box (350).  I use 4 external monitors and keep the lid on T480 closed.  The eGPU is conneceted via the Thunderbolt 3 port.  It works great except for one issue: Sleep Mode.  If I leave the T480 on my desk and put the machine into sleep mode via the keyboard and then wake it up with the keyboard it works fantastic.  However, if I take the laptop somewhere else (disconnect from eGPU) and then put into sleep mode and then go home and reconnect to eGPU and try to wake up with the keyboard or mouse it does not work.  I then have to open the lid, fire the T480 up with the on/off button and then I have to use the keyboard to go into sleep mode and then close the lid and then use the keyboard to awake from sleep mode and I am back to normal with my four monitors.  A real pain.  Same thing happens if I have a power failure at home. Any ideas? If I get a USB docking station (just for the external power button).  I could then use the power button on the docking station to awake from sleep mode when I reattach to eGPU and docking station when I get home?  Will the monitors still work via Thunderbolt/eGPU with a USB docking station with no monitors connected to it?

Hi all, i recently started using Lenovo Vantage's Battery Charge Threshold so that my laptop is plugged in and not charging. However, when it goes to sleep, i can't wake it, yet i can wake it from hibernation. The only way to wake it from sleep is to remove the power plug. However, when i turn off Battery Charge Threshold, i am able to wake my laptop from its sleep. Anyone has any solutions?

I have a new T480 and Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 dock. I find that often when I close--but in no way shut down--the computer for the night, when I restart in the morning, it completely restarts, so I lose open tabs, unsaved work, etc. I can understand enough of the system event log to determine that the computer always goes to sleep when I close it, then, per the power plan, hibernates three hours later--or at least tries to. The first sign of trouble in the logs comes at the time of hibernation. For example, at 2:37:25 this morning there is the routine Information event, "The system is entering sleep. Sleep Reason: Hibernate from Sleep - Fixed Timeout." This is followed immediately by the warning, "6105 - deauth after EAPOL key exchange sequence". Over the next 5 minutes come two more warnings and eight errors. Then nothing until I start the machine in the morning. One of the first events on restart is the information message, "The last shutdown's success status was false. The last boot's success status was true." It appears to me that this only happens if the computer is plugged into the Thunderbolt 3 dock overnight. To the dock are connected a (gigabit) ethernet cable, a displayport monitor, a mouse, a keyboard, and a pair of headphones. Here is a fuller dump of the error log at the last time it was hibernating, or trying to: Level Date and Time Source Event ID Task CategoryError 7/30/2018 2:41:33 AM Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM 10010 None The server {3EB...

Hi all, My T480 (20L5) does not resume from sleep with the AC adapter plugged in on BIOS 1.17. The issue occurs both when resuming using the lid or the power button. Upon unplugging the AC adapter, the computer instantly resumes from sleep. The issue is resolved by reverting to BIOS 1.16. Issue occurs both in Windows 10 and in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (kernel ver. 4.15.0).

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.

I can boot really quickly but after I try to resume from sleep it takes at least 10 min. The strangest thing. This same build with my last windows seven install did not have this problem with the exact same hardware. This is a recent install. I have all the newest drivers and windows updates. No issues in the device manager. I have looked through the event viewer but I do not show any errors at the time I was resuming from sleep..please any direction would be appreciated.

My compuer is set up to go to sleep after 1 hour (hybrid sleep option has been turned off). If I wake up the machine after about three hours Windows resumes ok but if it is left asleep overnight then instead of resuming Windows it reboots.

Any idea why this is happening and is there some way to correct this?

Hello JP,

Is it possible your computer is set to hibernate after a certain amount of time? Check and confirm that. Could be a resume from hibernate that is causing the issue.

I had this same problem while running under Win 7, and now under Win 8.1 Pro my PC is doing the same thing. It seems to wake up all on its own from "Sleep". I went through the device manager and looked at everything, and nothing but my KB and mouse where set to "Allow this device to wake computer". I set KB to disallow to wake PC, and left just my mouse.

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.

So I just got a brand new Lenovo Thunderbolt3 Dock Gen2 to use with my lovely T480. The dock works ok but I have a big problem everytime I put my laptop to sleep at the end of the day. In the next day when I wake my machine (by pressing the power button on the Gen2 dock) my system wakes up fine but my external keyboard doesn't work.I have to reboot my laptop to get the keyboard working again. Anyone have dealt with the same problem with Lenovos docks? All drivers and firmwares are installed from Lenovos site and the Thunderbolt3 software (the older app not the new UWP) sees the dock fine. Tried to unplug and plug back the USB keyboard but still it doesn't recognize or work.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I just recently decided to start trying to put my PC to sleep rather than just let it run constantly when I'm not using it, and found that when I resume it, even if it's IMMEDIATELY after putting it to sleep, there is no sound.

The only "fix" I've found is to either reboot, or (the quicker method) is to disable and enable the sound card in device manager. Sound then immediately returns.

Obviously this is far from ideal and I'd love for it to just function properly. Any ideas? My sound is onboard Realtek HD audio on a Biostar A770E3 motherboard.

Thanks everyone.

A:No sound when waking PC from sleep.

Generally, problems with sleep are device drivers. Check with Biostar to see if they have an updated RealTek sound driver (the sound driver from the motherboard vendor usually works best).

Hello,

I have recently built a new computer. For the most part it seems to work fine except when I attempt to put the computer to sleep and try to wake it up. Sometimes it wakes up fine, other times it simply black screens with hybrid sleep active. When I try to sleep with hybrid sleep disabled, I sometimes get blue screens (as attached below, though both are different). I had avast anti-virus installed when I got those blue screens and replaced it with Microsoft security essentials, since I have heard that avast sometimes causes blue screens. I am unsure if that solved my issue and would like to know if there are any other potential issues that may cause blue screens from waking up?

Roughly every other time I wake my computer from sleep, it BSODs and needs to be hard reset. I say "every other time", but that just means that my computer will wake from sleep or it will crash and need to be reset. Occasionally, it will wake from sleep twice before crashing on the next wake.

When I read the screen, it tells me that "atikmpag.sys" seems to be the problem, and I have tried clean installing my video drivers multiple times.
I've also updated my mobo BIOS.
I've also ended up switching video cards (and reinstalling the graphics drivers), but the problem persists.

By this point, I can only imagine the actual problem is the mobo, but I'm not sure how to check, so I offer up my dump file and hope someone can help. Thanks!

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.RAM - Test with Memtest86+





Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.

Its like the graphics card is still asleep. I have tried all of the diagnostics and everything that i found in the other HP Forums on why it may not work and it has still made no difference. I have changed the hibernation settings to and restarted the computer and again when it goes into sleep mode it doesnt wake up the screens again.  So it requires me to hold down the power button and reset from a cold restart for everything to start working again which is frustrating.

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

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.

A:Sleep mode, why is it waking up?

I had a similar problem with my PC, which uses a Gigabyte motherboard, so I checked the Gigabyte forums -- and the advice they gave me was to disable the BIOS option to allow the PC to wake on USB. The downside is that I now have to push the power button to wake the PC; the upside is that it STAYS asleep until I wake it.

My self-built PC gives me BSODs immediately or soon after waking from sleep, but not regularly. It can happen twice in a week and then not happen for maybe two months, but it does keep happening. I use it every day and put it to sleep every night and occasionally during the day. I generally don't shut it down or reboot it unless I have a specific reason to.

Today after it happened again it took a lot longer to boot than normal, with the green/blue ring spinning in the middle of the screen for ages before it took me to the desktop. Then shortly after that, before I'd opened anything, it bluescreened again (not a usual occurence), then took an unusual amount of time to start up this time too, but is working.

I ran memtest when I first got it so I don't think bad RAM is the problem.

Help please!

A:No Speakers After Waking Up From Sleep

Generally, that is a driver problem. Check with your PC vendor (or motherboard vendor if its a custom built) for the latest RealTek driver. Install the new driver (or if its the same version as you have, reinstall it). Restart the PC and see if that makes any difference. Non vendor sound drivers can either not work or not work correctly.

There may be other problems but the drivers are the first item.

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.

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...

Hi, I don't know what the problem is, but I've had two BSODs in the past week, which worries me a little. Both occurred within a minute or so of resuming from sleep mode. They have different error codes (one is IQRL_NOT_LESS_EQUAL and the other is ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY), so maybe they're unrelated, but I want to make sure they're not symptomatic of a larger hidden issue.
I'm not very familiar with the error codes and all that to fully understand, but it looks like one of them had something to do with the USB ports. I do take this computer home with me at the end of the day, which means putting it to sleep (by closing the lid), unplugging the external mouse, monitor, and ethernet cable. I eject any external hard drives or flash drives before putting it to sleep.

I did try the verify tool, but it found no unsigned drivers.
Additional info: Asus N56VZ laptop, purchased around June 2012. Windows 7 Pro (64 bit), OEM install, no recent hardware changes. Haven't reinstalled the OS since I got it. I fully restart the system about every other week or so.

Thank you!

It appears that you have a wireless USB modem:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

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.

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.
