ThinkPad Yoga Wifi takes time to connect after sleep

2014-09-25, 14:32 PM

My Yoga is taking several minutes to connect to my wifi after I bring it out of sleep mode. I've used Lenovo System Update to get the latest drivers, and when those didnt fix the issue I went straight to the manufacturer website. Updating the driver has not fixed my issue in anyway. I've disabled buletooth and played with some power options to try and fix it to no avail. Other Yogas in the office have no issues at all. 


Can anyone think of anything that I missed? Anything I could try?

I believe I have been experiecing the same thing as you. 


I open my laptop, waking it from sleep mode. The Wifi connection symbol in the taskbar with have a "*" in it. Hovering over it, it says "Not connected - Connections are available"


If I then click the icon, it almost instantly connects to my connection. Very strange behavior. 


Is this an unusual setting that is somewhere in Windows?


No additional updates to the driver are available.
