T450s laptop restarts instead of waking from sleep

Hi all,

 

My t450s restarts instead of waking from sleep when it's been left in sleep for a prolonged period. It has happened multiple times and I cannot figure out what the issue is. It seems to only happen when the laptop is not plugged in to AC. That is, it always boots fine when it's waking while it's plugged in.

 

What gives? How can I fix this?

 

Cheers,

Hi,

 

You're sure it's cold booting and not resuming from hibernation?

 

Have you checked you sleep settings to make sure it's not set to hibernate after a set time when on battery?  That's how I have mine set:  sleep and if that goes on for an extended time, hibernate.

Yes. I've made sure hibernation is not allowed at all. The computer goes to sleep if and only if commanded to.

Roger that.

 

What's the battery state when you turn it back on?  What is the low battery threshold set to?

 

It could be that it's doing a low battery shutdown - either appropriately or because the trigger point is set to high.

 

Other than that, out of ideas...

0%. And 7% is the warning threshold. And no, I always find that it has well over 7% left when it's back on. I'm almost certain it has nothing to do with the battery state.

Thanks again
