Thinkpad Edge 11 - Random unexpected hibernation

2011-01-14, 14:24 PM

I just bought a ThinkPad Edge 11 (AMD). My problem is that when it is on battery its randomly hibernating when the battery is still loaded (around 80 %).

 

Its really annoying, because I cant take back the laptop from this "hibernation", mainly only with forced restarting. Its happening once a day, and im loosing always all my work when this happens.

 

Does anyone has the same problem? Any solution for it? Its really disappointing for a one week old laptop... :(

 

Thank you for your help.

Had something like this with the Intel Version.

My solution was to check something like "Don't do anything if Battery is at 0%"  in the Lenovo Powermanager. I have the german Version so I can't give you the exact menu names.

I bought same laptop with intel processor. Having same issue on Windows 7 64bit. Does anyone have a solution for this problem besides disabling hibernation?

If you set the HDD protection to low it will stop it. The Intel version seems twitchy when you type too hard... protects the HDD too much and disables itself.

Im having the same problem on an Edge 11 with Intel chipset. Screen randomly blacks out on battery and the led dot in the thinkapadlogo starts "beating" for a while, after about 30 secs it dies.

Restart boots in to the windows "resume windows"-menu.

 

I also had an Edge 13 about a year ago with the same issue, witch I solved after i night of googling... however I cant find my way back to the page where i found the solution.

As I remember the trick was to change the driver for the video or soundcard or something?

 

Does anyone have an update on this issue.

I've been in contact with lenovo support. They wanted me to send in the laptop for hardware service, I decliend for the time being as Im sure this is an softwareissue.

 

Dumping this tread to see if anyone has an update or fix.

 

Regards!

Any word on this?  I think this might be what is happening on my Edge as well.  Randomly kicks into hibernation mode.

I bought my edge 11 AMD last week and have the same problem. There must be a decent solution for this problem.
