Sorry for the double post, but I see you can actively get the mouse cursor when coming back up.
The key is to understand the few Lenovo apps that take over the whole desktop. These apps may be having a hard time coming back online from sleep.
If the diagnostic boot's sleep and wakening seem to work fine, then I'd be looking closely at the Lenovo apps. I'll list them if needed.
