Re: Fingerprint Reader not working upon waking from sleep for windows login

By now, trial driver is working like a charm and I never experienced the issue.

 

I worked on battery power and connected to power chord and docking station.

Thanks for letting me know.  I marked my post with the link to the trial driver as the solution for now.  When the formal release is provided later, I'll update this thread again.  

 

I'd like the thank the community for all the help and offer my sincere apologies at how long it took to get to a solution.

Re: Fingerprint Reader not working upon waking from sleep for windows login

The trial driver works for me, though on a full restart it seems to slow down the booting to the login screen. It's subtle but noticeable, but I'll take it for the convenience of the fingerprint reader actually working. Yay! One less annoying thing with this computer! Almost at the point where it doesn't make me curse more than 3 or 4 times a day.

Re: Fingerprint Reader not working upon waking from sleep for windows login

This trial driver seems to have solved the issues on my W540 as well, and the FP reader is now working reliably.

 

I still have an issue that I was hoping this driver would solve: on my old W520 I could wake the computer with the FP Reader, and this was a very nice option, but this option is greyed out on the W540. Is it not possible to wake the W540 with the FP reader?

 

Thanks

Unfortunately W540 does not have this capability.

Thank you for answering that question. Not a super big deal, but happy to have a concrete answer so I can stop worrying about it. Beta driver is still doing great!
