T500 fails to enter StandBy mode when screen is shut and/or when modem driver fails to cooperate

2010-02-03, 10:31 AM



After a few months of operating well, my T500 started failling to enter stand by when I shut the lid (that is, the screen). On the other hand, using the OS (windows XP) menu dialogs  to enter stand by, that works fine.

After a few more months, when I'm already in the habit of entering stand by manually through the dialogs, this started failing too, with error messages saying the modem driver is at fault.

- I recently updated the BIOS and screen drivers hoping the stand by situation will improve

- No updated are available for the modem driver. The  Lenovo installed vesrion is still the latest one.

- I haven't found any relevant logs in the Event Viewer


Any suggestions?
