Y40 open lid won't trun on laptop after fresh Win8 Iinstall

Hi all,

I just bought an Lenovo Y40-80 and did a fresh install of Windows 8.1.


So far everything seems to be working correctly after the reinstall, except that when I open the laptop lid, the computer doesn't turn on and I have to hit the power button to get it to respond. It almost acts like it has gone into a hybrid shutdown. I've checked the power management settings for the close lid properties and they are all set to Sleep. Is there some software that needs to be installed that I missed? Anything else that could cause this behavior?

Hi Emissary3,


Welcome to the Forums


As per the query we understood that you facing issue with power setting in your Lenovo Y40 laptop.


Right click on the battery symbol in the task bar, select power option, under power saver option select change plan settings, under this again select change advanced power setting option.


Under advance setting select sleep option and select allow wake timers check if the on battery and and plugged are enabled, if not please enable and select apply and check if the laptop lid is closed and open does it power on.


Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!                                                   


Best regards,
