T460 fingerprint sensor slow when waking from sleep

2017-05-15, 4:50 AM

When I boot my computer, the fingerprint sensor is instantly available (green light) when the login screen appears, and I can just swipe to log in straight away.


However, when I open the laptop from sleep, it takes almost 20 seconds for the green light to come on, defeating the purpose of the fingerprint sensor being quicker than a password.


Also, do I need to use lenovo's fingerprint managment software? It makes a whole separate user option at the login page called 'fingerprint.'


Can I just have my normal user account come up and be able to use the scanner? Without the annoying 'other credentials' button?
