Lenovo 500-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) wont wakeup after sleep
I have a Lenovo 500-15ISK Laptop (ideapad) with Windows 7 64bit. I noticed a problem where the computer will not wake up after sleeping. The light turns on and I can hear the fan, but the screen remains dark. This is getting really annoying, as I have to reboot my laptop every time this happens. I have already updated a bunch of drivers to no avail. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Also why there is no updated BIOS; energy management driver for windows 7 but only for windows 10?

Hi there, Lenovouser -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
It sounds like the GPU is failing to wake. Are you up-to-date with your Intel drivers? First check Lenovo's latest, and if that doesn't work, try the Intel drivers using the Intel Update Utility:
Installing the new Graphics driver will solve the "Unable to wake from Sleep Problem."
Update us how it goes.
