Startup issues with Windows 8 after sleep mode


So i have the power button set to sleep, and when I press it, my U410 Ideapad with Windows 8 goes to sleep, like it should. When I press it again to wake it up, it either: freezes and doesn't allow me to pull up the lockscreen, or does lift the start screen only to let me barely begin to type a password before it freezes. Any ideas?

Hi bisopia,

Thanks for posting and welcome to the commmunity. Upon reading your post I was just wondering when you put you machine to sleep, how long do you leave it for, before waking it up? If you put it to sleep for 5-10mins, does the freezing still occur?

To be honest I'm not entirely sure what's causing this but what I would suggest is for you to update the Intel Management firmware.

Please do give it try and let me know.
