It shouldn't run in sleep mode.  Are you sure you have your computer set to sleep when the lid is closed?

If the power light is blinking like he says it is, it has to be in sleep mode.

Re: Yoga 13 Fan Noise

2013-01-26, 4:14 AM

I figured I'd add my unit to the list as well.

 

I'm having constant fan noise, even when the CPU is running cool. I'd like to distance myself from people who say this is not an issue except for in very quiet environments as my device is loud even in heavily ventilated rooms at uni, at home with a desktop running or while browsing in a public place (trains etc). It is also noticeably louder than several laptops put together (in my uni study group, 2x Lenovo, 1x Acer). And by noticeably louder I mean we can't hear the three other laptops, and people complain about the noise from mine!

 

I also experience the supposed coil noise (basically a high pitch, low volume beeping noise, almost rythmically), but considering you have to get pretty close to actually notice this, I don't really even consider it an issue compared to the fan noise..

 

I don't have the box here, but the info on the sticker is:

 

Model Name: 2191

P/N: 5*******

M0: R********

Mfg Date: 12/11/29

 

If S/N is needed, please let me know.

 

Really not sure what to do, as the device really ticks all the boxes for a Win8 Laptop, but it's just ridiculous that the fan of this 1500€ ultrabook is clearly audible even when a desktop PC with SLI graphics is running right next to me.

 

Normally I would contact support, but reading through this and other threads that seems rather pointless unless you've actually bought the device through Lenovos own Web Shop(or, is it?).

 

Subscribed to the thread and hoping for some assistance with the issue ASAP.

Re: Yoga 13 Fan Noise

Posting to report the same problem on my girlfriend's recently purchased Yoga 13... same high pitched noise and fans running at full despite the computer being idle. We just recently purchased though so we still have time to return it. It doesn't look like there will be a resolution to this problem anytime soon, so replacing our unit for another Yoga probably won't solve issue. I guess we're just going to pick up the Asus UX31 instead. It's too bad, absolutely love the Yoga but having such a high pitched noise from the laptop at my girlfriend's office is a deal breaker.

Re: Yoga 13 Fan Noise

I've been on the fence about this because of this fan issue (I've had to live with an HP laptop that sounds like a jet taking off every few minutes for 4 years now). Dumb question... does this happen with every single Yoga, that the threshold for the fan running all the time is so low, that it does run all the time? Or just a big percentage of them?

 

Because I can't hear when I was over at my local Best Buy which has two on display, presumably on all day everyday. So to compensate for the background noise of a busy store, I pressed my ear up to the back of both Yogas, and almost no peep came out.

I don't think every Yoga has the loud fan problem, cause I don't think mine does.  I too used to have HP laptops that were loud so I thought maybe I was just biased (and that's why I wanted someone to post a video of the fan noise) but I think the only issue that is going to be in ALL Yoga models is the Intel CPU-based coil whine, which is in most i3/i5/i7 laptop/ultrabooks and has been an issue for several years now.  It's a high frequency noise that not all people can hear though, and I only hear it sometimes with mine.  I had to just make myself get over being overly bothered with it though, cause I needed this exact type of computer and needed it now.

Dear all,

 

I have the same issue with the fan noise of my Lenovo Yoga 13: It never stops, even if I'm not requiring any task to the processor. It's really a pity because I was quite happy with the performance of the laptop. But for me it's a reason enough to get rid of it and send it back to Lenovo. If they don't think of consumers satisfaction, I will do the same with their products.

Re: Yoga 13 Fan Noise

I'm really wondering about the i7 variants. I'm willing to spend more money and get the i7 model if it doesn't have
A: scraping fan
B: always on fan

C: coil whine

 

Is there someone out here who knows if the i7 has the same issues yes or no?
