I currently have two problems with my Lenovo Ideapad Y500 laptop running on Windows 8 64-bit:
1.) Occasionally, whenever I plug in my Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch or my iTouch, nothing happens. Well, my Wacom has the light that blinks, which indicates that it is not working. The light should stay on to show that it is working. My iTouch does not charge when I plug it in. So, I figured I need to restart the laptop. However, the restart takes forever. I need to actually press the power button to turn it off and back on. Then, the Wacom and iTouch works again.
2.) Sometimes, when I turn my laptop on, it does not have internet connection. But when I press WiFi icon down in the bottom right hand corner, it detects my router. So, sometimes, I have to actually press connect in order to connect to my router. Usually, it automatically connects.
Also, at times, my internet browser (I use Chrome) loads webpages slowly. I look down and the highest bar on my wifi disappears and reappears. So, I have to actually press disconnect and connect again. After, all the bars appear back.
Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I’m sorry to hear that there is Wi-Fi and USB issue while connecting Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch device to Y500 laptop; also I suggest you check with Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch is compatible with Windows 8.
If the issue persists even after performing the above troubleshooting steps, performing OSRI (Operating System Re-Install) will resolve the issue, download the User Guide for steps to perform OKR (One Key Recovery) refer page no. 24.
NOTE: Please backup the data before performing OKR as the computer will be re-installed to its factory settings.
Hope this helps!!!
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
