T510 Thinkpad turns itself on automatically

2010-07-29, 6:35 AM

My T510 thinkpad turns itself on automatically sometimes.  Sometimes I wake up the next day and when I open the lid, I find that the screensaver is on.  I always put my computer into hibernate when I close the lid.  I have my laptop almost always plugged into the AC adapter as well.  I've noticed that this has happend 4 or 5 times already.  I've had my laptop for approximately 1 1/2 months now.  I set my windows update to off so I don't think 'that's whats causing the laptop to turn on itself.  Any help would be appreciated.

Solved! See the solution

Is your computer set up to "Allow wake timers"? It's for Windows 7 only.

There also may be some kind of wake timers in the BIOS configuration.

 

To check the first, do the following;

1. Click the Start button.

2. Click "Control Panel"

3. Click "System and Security"

4. Click "Power Options"

5. Click "Change plan settings" for the power plan currently in use.

6. Click "Change advanced power settings"

7. Expand "Sleep" by clicking the + next to it.

8. Expand "Allow wake timers".

 

Are any of these enabled?

You said this solved your problem the day after the suggestion was made.

 

Curious, has it still not occured since?

The reason I ask is I have had my laptop for a couple of months and the first time this happened to me was 2 days ago.

It also happened to a collegue on that same day 8-17.

 

My collegue had it happen yesterday 8-18 but I didn't and then again today 8-19

 

This didn't happen to me for the first time 2-3 months after I hadthe laptop.

Not it's happened teice in 3 days.

 

Also, when I went to these settings, I had the "Allow wake timers" disabled on battery but to  "Important Wake Timer Only" for plugged in.

 

Both times my laptop turned on, it was in my bag and not plugged in.

 

FYI, I also found this:

I followed but my windows 10 does not have "Allow wake timers" under "Sleep". Should I open a ticket with Lenovo or Microsft?
