Blank or dark screen after running on battery subsequent to standby

2008-07-24, 14:55 PM



I am seeing a strange problem with my T60 (195144U0 running windows XP SP2. When I put the notebook into standby, then resume it on battery, the display disappears after a few minutes. The screen is either completely dark, or blank with some backlight visible. The disk/power/battery indicators are working and I am able to 'blindly' reboot it it put it into standby again. in either case, once restarted, display returns to normal. If I put it into standby, the same symptom occurs after resuming.


Strangely enough, this only happens after a standby. It operates normally on battery if I never put it in standby after booting up.


This is pretty annoying since I put the notebook into standby at the end of the day and resume back in my hotel room so I don't have to wait for the reboot. Any help would be appreciated.
