T500 hangs when going into Standby

2010-05-03, 21:24 PM

T500 unit with XP SP3 hangs when going into Standby when Bluetooth is enabled. Latest drivers, BIOS, etc.  Any ideas?

When were these latest drivers installed?  I was having some problems with standby and hibernate crashing or screwing up the wifi, but just yesterday updated to latest drivers and things appear to be functioning better.  Did have a small hiccup where the fingerprint scanner stopped prompting me at login, but an uninstall/reinstall fixed the problem.

Updated drivers were as of last month.  I noticed that when logged on as the user, I would get no error message...it would simply hang at the window 'Preparing to Standby' no matter which way I attempted to go into Standy Mode, but when logged in as a local administrator, I would get an error message in reference to the Bluetooth device.  Once disabled life was good. I therefore googled the issue and ran thru a slew of options...which included updating device drivers, updating the BIOS, uninstall/reinstalling fingerprint reader software, uninstall/reinstall bluetooth, disabling any TSR programs, yada yda....it seemed to work for a week. Then back to square one, diable the bluetooth and all is good.

I guess I should mention that I would like to have all features enabled, including Bluetooth, and have the ability to go into Standy or Hibernate without hanging.  Disabling Bluetooth is the workaround, but I need a solution.
