Can't wake up T400

2008-10-14, 23:45 PM

I just got my brand-new T400. Please see profile below.

Here is the issue: When my laptop entered the sleep status, it can't be back forever. (Press Fn+F4,or Fn+12).

The only way is to press the power botton.

My obersevation is when I pressing the Fn key, the battery LED is on.  Some sounds can be heared at that time. Then nothing else....  Blank screen.Only two LED is on: Battery and Moon (sleep).

 I am doubting that there is something wrong with the hardware.

 

Help!

Thanks for reply.

I am not very sure about the step "  Disable Windows Hybrid Hard Disk Power Savings Mode ".

What I did is 'Power Options', 'Advanced settings','Energy Star[Active]', 'Hard Disk', 'Turn off hard disk after'=>Never.

But this change did not work either.

Correct me if i am in the wrong page.

 

Thanks

Herry

What's the profile of your T400 ?

I am doubting the LED Minitor driver. So far I have no idea about that.

Same problem with new T500. Running Vista, with LCD 1280X800 screen. Have not yet come with a solution. Next stop is Tech Support...

Let us know, what they tell you.

Today I got an update for the Power Managment driver. I couldn't test it yet. Does it change anything?
