Lenovo 2in1 (81CW) problem where is seems dead but isn't...

2018-01-08, 21:52 PM

After a period of inactivity the screen will be off and it won't respond to keyboard/trackpad.  Power button is on.  Will respond to pings, but I can't connect to it with VNC in this state.  It is like it is sleeping but the keyboard won't wake it up.  If I tap the power button a few times, it will eventually come back in 30-60 seconds or so.  When it comes back everything is fine, email is still opened, browser is still opened, no problems, not locked up.  At this point I can use it just fine.


I upgraded the bios from 2.03 to 2.05 just now, hoping this issue was bios related - are the release notes for bios updates available?
