I just got my x230 yesterday and I'm having some weird issues.
(1) whenever my laptop goes to sleep mode. I can't seem to make it wake up. The power button would just slowly blink and would not respond to anything. I would have to hard reset my laptop for it to turn on. When I turn it back on, it would go the "Start windows normally" screen.
(2) whenever I close the lid, I'm guessing it tries to go to sleep mode, then if I wake it up, the system seem to reboot and would go to the "start windows normally" screen.
Both seems to all relates to sleep mode. Does any body have the same issue? I really need help.
Solved! Go to Solution.

welcome to the community!
the power button is supposed to blink slowly while the pc is in stand-by mode. try pressing the Fn key to wake your machine up.
please post back if this works for you.

Thanks for the response. I've tried pressing Fn but it's still telling me that windows didn't shut down property and start window (safe mode, etc.) screen.
This is from just selecting it to sleep.

I may have fixed the problem. I tried upgrading the ram (from 4gb to 16gb). Now sleep mode works as its supposed to be.
I guess 4gb wasn't sufficient for x230. It sucks that I had to upgrade something just to make the unit work. I was hoping to test run this unit for a month without upgrading.

You can disable the sleep mode and use the suspend mode. Normally, if your system changes to suspend mode the content of your RAM will be written to your harddrive, so the size of your RAM won't matter. Jus tmake sure that there is 1.5x the size of your RAM free on your harddrive.
In combination with a SSD as your system drive there won't be a great difference in boot time between sleep mode and suspend mode.

I've got the exact same problem. If I put the the laptop into sleep by pressing Fn + F4, it's fine. However, if the laptop goes to sleep by itself, there's no way I can wake it up (not even by pressing Fn). I have already shut it down manually for more than 10 times already. Please help. Thanks
