Q: T440p shuts down after closing the lid

hi,I have a lenovo T440p laptop that i have been using for 6 months now. newly the laptop often and unexpectedly turns off rather then going into sleep mode after i close the lid.Also, sometimes, after i close the lid the display turns off and the laptop becomes irresponsive but do not enter sleep mode. the only way is to force reboot the laptop. i have installed all the required updates proposed by the thinkvantage utility but the problem is persisting.what could be the reason for this behaviour and how could it be solved?

Preferred Solution: T440p shuts down after closing the lid

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.)

Hello, I need some help!I just got a new T440p a couple months ago and I'm having trouble with the mouse.  The cursor will randomly jump to the top right corner of the screen and close programs.  It is a completely random problem; nothing ever seems to trigger it.  Yesterday I installed the newest Synaptics Pointing Device Driver and I still have the problem.  It even seemed to add a new problem where the cursor started flashing and the computer was beeping.  It wouldn't respond at all, even after me leaving it to sit and sort itself out and I eventually had to resort to shutting down with the power button and restarting.  That problem hasn't occured since, but the cursor jump to close programs continues to be a problem.I'm running Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit. Any suggestions??

A:T440p mouse erratic and closing programs

Did you find a solution to this? I have the same issue and need a solution! Are you also left-handed? I think it may be with the hand hitting the pad causing it to jump in the opposite corer. For right-handed people, this would be annoying but not cause as much havoc closing programs with no X in the top left corner. Never have had the issue with a wireless mouse when my hand is nowhere near the pad.

 Let me start out by saysing that this is my second time making this thread. The first time the laptop overheated and shut down before I finished. Yes, its that bad. So, my t440p with a core i7 4600m and a GT 730m graphics card has been overheating constantly. I can't even browse the web without it shutting down. Temps on both the cpu and graphics chip reach 90 degrees celsius or more frequently. Any suggestions on whats wrong with the laptop?

My 15T randomly shuts down when I close the lid.  I have the power settings set to sleep when the lid is closed for both on battery and plugged in.  I have also tried do nothing and hibernate with the same results.  I would say my laptop shuts down about 30% of the time when I close the lid.  Thank you.

#HPExpertDayIf the notebook is issued from a institution or organization, it could be programmed in the way that it shutsdown when you close the lid.If not then update BIOS and Firmware if any.

If you have it set to do nothing in battery and plugged modes, then it should do nothing except blank the screen.

Sometimes when I go to close a website page I've been on, it freezes and then will say "website not responding" next to Windows IE at the top. Then if I click it to close it again it closes ALL of my open sites and shuts down IE and I have to start over and get back online. It seems to be doing this more and more often.
I am using IE 8.0 with Aol (9.0?)

It seems that your IE is freezing. This may be because of many reasons. You should start with running IE8 without any add-ons. Right click on the IE shortcut on your desktop and select Start without Add-ons. Check if your IE still freezes.

HI, I noticed this problem which seems like 3 weeks ago or so. I am running Windows 10 64 bit on my T450s, and when I start to close the screen, the screen will go black. The red light on the back will remain on, but as soon as I fully open the screen again, the computer will be completely turned off. My options are set to put the computer in sleep mode when the lid is closed, but this can happen when tilting just a few degrees. I am on BIOS version 1.22.  Any help would be appreciated.

I used to be able to close my lid on my laptop and it would go to sleep, then when I returned to use it I opened my lid and it would resume where I left off. (HP Pavilion, running VISTA).

Now when I close lid, it does abnormal shutdown of any open applications and Windows. Upon power up, a text screen advises of abnormal shutdown and prompts to start in safe mode or start normally. Not sure why this changed.
I have confirmed under CONTROL PANEL, POWER OPTIONS, SYSTEM SETTINGS that it is set to SLEEP when lid is closed. (both for A/C or battery). Any other suggestions????

Hello,

First of all, I'm Dutch and so is my Windows, so if some terms aren't quite as they should in English, I apologize and hope you still understand.

I recently reinstalled Windows 8 completely because I bought an SSD for in my laptop. I exported my power plans I used before the reset (when Windows was still on the HDD) and imported them again after the reset. In every power plan, Windows should go to sleep mode when closing the laptop lid, but that's not what's happening. Instead, Windows shuts down entirely, but the power light on my laptop indicates it's in sleep mode (flashing slowly). I also tried the built-in power plans (after just adjusting the appropriate setting), but the same happens. When i change the setting to do nothing (instead of going to sleep mode), it acts like it should: it does nothing.

Dell E6500 - few years old.  Now shuts down after closing the lid after several hours - at least when left closed over night - even when on AC power.  
This behavior is new as for the longest time it would simply go to sleep as desired.
The close lid behavior is still set to sleep.    It must power down hard because when I lift the lid in the morning, Windows 7 wants to recover from unexpected shutdown.
 
Again, this happens after the lid is closed for some time while on AC power.   Frustrating as it is used to sleep and would wake up when I needed it to.

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 laptop that is connected to 2 Dell monitors via a Targus docking station and VGA cables. However, when I close my laptop to sit under the monitors, it shuts down the computer and the screens go blank. Is there a setting that allows me to close the laptop while still working off the two monitors?
Thanks,

Check your Power Settings for what happens when you close the lid. Usually the laptop sleeps, hibernates or shuts down when the lid is closed. No signal is sent to monitors when that happens.

Hello everyone, I'm having the issue noted above. BSODs attribute the crash to either one of two files: cdd.dll (most commonly) and win32k.sys (only once). Screen turns jagged, goes black and then BSOD but only occasionally. I've had this crashes happen to me only 4 times in a whole week already. World of Warcraft crashes were all succesive, but after updating Catalyst drivers it never happened again. PC was crash-free for 3 or 4 days (thought it may have solved the issue and I could stop worrying about faulty hardware components) but yesterday night closing Chrome it happened again. I turned off Aero desktop after that, just in case.

The problem is I can't find any Memory dump or minidump for those BSODs even though settings are on for that (maybe MEMORY.DMP is too large? I have 15 free Gb out of 320 on my boot drive. I changed it to minidumps just in case. Oh, also, it was already set to overwrite so no idea what's going on). Could not find them manually nor could SF Diagnostics tools which I just ran.

My rig is new, only about 3 months old and no hardware changes since. The only components coming from my older PC are the boot HDD and graphics card. The only thing that's happened is 3 or 4 power outages in December but BSODs started only last week. If any hardware components are malfunctioning they are luckily under warranty but I need to determine if that's the case.

Only other strange thing is that, when gathering my rig's data for this post, Everest shows my Motherboa... Read more

A:BSOD when resizing/closing World of Warcraft, also when closing Chrome

Hi Haxiel.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

A:Slow browser, IE closing, Outlook and Yahoo closing

Hi Elise,
thank you. I ended up getting rid of PC Tools Internet Security and switching to AVG Basic Free. I think most of the major problems went away.
Yahoo has stayed up, Outlook has stayed up, browser seems to work quickly, facebook didn't have floating text and pictures anymore, was able to do some posting, sent some large emails. But, and not exactly sure, IE has frozen up, but not as often. The dds program you had me run this morning froze and I had to do a hard shut off, task mgr didn't respond and the weirdest thing of all, the clock stopped. Can't say I have ever seen that. So I am not sure what exactly is going on, if it really is malware or some setting is messed up. I wasn't able to run video on a site last night. Major improvement since I got rid of PC tools, but not quite right. Sorry, nontechie.

About 2 weeks ago it was apparent that laptop #1 was infected with antispyware XP 2009. My husband tried to solve it himself without waiting for me, I'm the problem solver in the house. Anyway, he purchased Shield Dekuxe which didn't seem to work. He downloaded the trial version of StopZilla which found bad things and quarentined them. Things were working fine.

Today things are not working again. I can open IE and it will bring up the home page (google.com) but anything typed in the search box or clicked on from the drop down list of frequently visited sites just closes IE. I also cannot search. The window will open, but clicking on anything (files/folders, documents, etc) immediately closes the window. I also cannot find Windows Explorer.

Shield Deluxe is currently installed, StopZilla is uninstalled. We have Zone Alarm installed, possibly. I was doing online chat with Shield Deluxe to get it to work (the internet aspect) and they said to uninstall ZA as it would interfere with SD. I removed ZA using add/remove programs from the control panel, yet when I restarted the computer ZA started up. It is no longer listed in the add/remove programs list. However viewing All Programs from the start menu shows a folder for Zone Labs. Since I can't find Windows Explorer and I can't search I can't find the folder to delete its contents.

Obvious to anyone. You have three malware apps running live at the same time. You have Avast, Kaspersky, and AVG.

You need to remove them all and install Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST.

If you continue to crash even after removing them upload the DMP file as you have old drivers that need updating.

Same thing with Mass Effect 2. Still kicks off. It will run all day surfing the internet, running office, etc. Any suggestions?

A:T440p shutting off

sounds like overheating.  Can you install something to monitor temperatures, like TPFanControl?
 
Also, it works differently with no battery.  You should get one.
 
Do you have discrete or integrated graphics?  What is the rating of your power supply?

Is it possible to upgrade my CPU and RAM on my T440p?

A:T440p CPU and RAM upgrade

Welcome to the forum!
 
Yes, you can upgrade both. Max RAM is 16GB (2x 8GB), and you could install any CPU from the below list:
 

i5-4210M
i5-4300M
i5-4330M
i7-4600M
i7-4700MQ
i7-4710MQ
i7-4800MQ
i7-4900MQ

I'm only listing few models for the sake of keeping the list short. Basically any Haswell CPU should work.
 
To do this upgrades you need Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual, which you can download from here:  click me!

Before I buy and install an M.2 card, I wanted to ask just what do I need to know or do before and after the installation. The installation itself is basically simple but I'm not real sure how to set it up or what it can be used for? Do I really need it? I've read several articles about this and found more confusion. Some claim to use it as a boot drive for storing Windows, while others claim it is only good for existing drive cache. I'm wondering if adding the M.2 will even be of any use or improvement to me. Does anyone know anything about this? Please keep it like me, very simple. I'm not even sure which one to get for my T440p. I found this.. will it work fine? Lenovo SK hynix 128GB M.2 2242 PCIe NVMe SSD w/ 2280 Bracket, HFM128GDHTNGI won''t use the included 2280 bracket as it's not for my machine. Some of those terms are kinda foreign to me. Any insights or info is greatly appreciated.

I just picked up a t440p, and I am hoping to do some upgrades on it.  I got a Transcend 512 GB SSD for the M.2 slot.   It installs just fine, and Windows 10 sees the drive.  The only issue is that when the M.2 SSD is installed, there is no wireless adapter in the system.  When I remove the M.2 SSD, the wireless adapters are back. Is it not possible to have both in the system and functional?  I am hoping to make the M.2 SSD the OS drive, and use the other SSD drives (2.5") for storage.

Just gifted this computer:
 
Thinkpad T440p 20AN  00DEUS
 
S/N PC-*****
 
Only thing that Lenovo would give me was vague configuration on the 20AN. Was hoping someone could direct me to something more specific.
 
Thanx!

Hi, I've been using my Thinkpad T440p for only few months, When I plug in the charger, battery doesn't charge and doesn't show anything (as if the charger is not plugged in at all). - The charger itself is working.- If i removed the battery and botted the laptop with cahrger plugged in it works.- if the laptop is off and i plugged in the charger the battery will charge.- Whenever I plug in the charger while on battery, the power light blinks but without charging. I've tried to uninstall ACPI Power driver and didn't work, I've tried to update BIOS and it isn't possible as the update require both the battery and charger to be connected which is not possible. Please help

Hi,I recently purchased a used T440p, more specifically a model 20AW-S0RK03. Unfortuntatly it arrived damaged and, naive as I was, I accepted a small partial refund and figured it wouldn't be too much on an issue to replace it...However, it seems that this part is rather difficult to obtain and furthermore I now realize that the palmrest for the T440p exists with several different internal designs (number/placement of screw holes etc.).If possible I would much prefer not having to disassemble it twice - once to figure out the part number and once again when the part arrives - so if anyone can inform me what part number I need for my specific model (20AW-S0RK03), then that would be a huge help.Any tips on where to buy (if allowed) will also be greatly appreciated. Note that I'm a student, so both cost and delivery time (I'm in Europe) needs to be considered.Thanks in advance. I really hope that someone can assist me with this tiresome situation.Rasmus

Hello, I have a T440p. It has an SSD drive that it came with originally. Now I wish to secure erase it. I've tried with the ThinkPad Drive Erase Utility but when I try to boot with it I only get the following error message:ERROR: This utility works for Disk Encryption Drive or Solid State Drive only. I've confirmed that the SSD functions normally, so it's odd that the erase utility won't recognize it. The web page for the utility specifically says it supports T440p. I've also tried with Parted Magic, but it only says that the drive is "unsupported". Does anyone have any advise on what to do here?

Hi,
 
I don't have any direct experience with this but using your FRU numbers and The Google to cross to the 04X numbers listed here:  https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t440p_fru_list_20140217.pdf
 
It looks like the differences are license (8 STD or PRO), AMT, and TPM.

Hi, my 3year old lenovo t440p laptop shuts down after few seconds when it's attached to AC and battery is inserted. It also does not start up when the battery is inserted and connected to ac power. It's  running fine when connected to ac power and battery removed. I tried my charger and battery on another laptop and they are working, I'm experiencing the same issue when using different battery and charger. I tried to push power button for 11th times and WA like this but no luck. I was thinking to update the BIOS, but I'm not sure if it possible without battery..

As I understand it, the T440p has three options for internal storage : (1) Internal SATA slot for a 2.5" drive.(2) SATA slot for a 2.5" drive in the Ultrabay/caddy.(3) M.2 slot.My question: Do all of these slots work at SATA3 6Gbps ? Is the interface for all three SATA3 6Gbps ? Will new SATA3 6Gbps SSDs work at SATA3 6Gbps speeds for all three  ? What is the maximum capacity for each slot ?  Many Thanks

Hi, I have a T440p Lenovo Thinkpad laptop. OS is Windows 7 professional. It is very slow as visible when trying to open any normal sized file (like PPT, word doc etc.) stored on my local harddrive, it takes visible amount of time before file actually opens up. Earlier I was having HP Elitebook with Windows XP and similar files used to open-up instantly. Please let me know what could be the reason and how this issue could be resolved. Regards,Amit

A:T440p with Windows 7 very slow

Hi Amit,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with slow performance on your ThinkPad T440p.
 

Have you checked disabling Anti-Virus application?
Is the issue persisting in ?Safe Mode??
Run hardware scan from the Lenovo solution center app, and check if it is showing any error in it.

Hope this helps.
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar
