E430 does not resume from sleep

2018-10-10, 19:40 PM

BIOS Version: 2.60, 6/14/2018

SMBIOS Version: 2.7

OS: Windows 7 Pro 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601


My laptop consistently fails to resume from sleep:

  • I hear what sounds like the CD drive "hit" (there is no disc in the drive). I believe this is a normal sound when powering up.
  • The display remains black.
  • No keypress has any effect. CTL-ALT-DEL has no effect.
  • Power button has no effect.

All system updates have been done.


From other posts I have ensured that power options NEVER allow the laptop to enter sleep due to timeout.


To reboot I disconnet AC, remove battery, install battery, connect AC, and press the power button. I verified that I can successfully reboot either on battery alone or AC alone.


System logs only show messages at boot time indicating that the system was not shutdown properly.


Any thoughts?
