Howdy.........a couple of weeks ago I applied some updates to my T400 through Thinkvantage maybe......honestly I don't remember. But it was recommended updates for my machine to things like Power Manager and Access Connections.
After I did that, I've run into some issues I did not have before and am very frustrated with!
The main one I think relates to Power Manager. I'm at v3.6.4 now. No idea what I was at before. I like to have the machine set up to go into hibernate when I close the lid. It does that.....but immediately after it resumes 99.9% of the time. Same is true if I select 'hibernate' from the start logo. I have idle timers to put it into sleep after so many minutes and hibernate after so many more. But when it does, it immediately resumes. So it's an endless cycle.
I've made sure that "Wake on" is off in the bios and in the network adapter settings.
The other issue I have is that after the 0.1% of the time that it stays in hibernate, when I come back to resume, my external monitor (I extend my desktop across the Thinkpad and an external monitor) is not recognized as what it is but instead is listed as "Generic PnP monitor" and is unusable because it just shows "Out of range" and "60Hz" on the monitor. Only rebooting fixes that from what I can tell.
I've since tried reinstalling the monitor's driver, downloading and reinstalling Power Manager manually......no changes. Has anyone else had this difficulty or just know how to fix it? I'm going crazy with it.....
