T61 Won't Wake From Sleep

Greetings.  I have a T61 that won't wake from sleep.

 

Situation:

  • Put PC to "sleep" using Fn+F4, closing lid or let it go to "sleep" via system timer
  • PC will not wake upon opening lid, using Fn+F4 or power button.
  • We're forced to either 1) hold down power button (which forces a reboot), or 2) (when that fails), unplug from wall AND remove battery.

System:

  • T61, 7664 RYU, Bios 7LETC6WW (2.26)
  • Vista
  • All Microsoft and Lenovo patches installed and current

 

Notes:

  • Don't have a restore point we can refer back to.
  • Don't want to have to burn it down and start over.
  • My hunch is that there is a conflict somewhere in the registry (maybe between what the bios thinks and what the registry has)?

I'll PayPal you $25 if your solution fixes it....  Seriously.

 

Many thanks.

Re: T61 Won't Wake From Sleep

So after trying some more I think I found the trick.  Some post suggested I roll back Turbo Memory drivers and that made it so I could not get to the desktop aka bricked)

 

So reinstalled OS (W7) and when updating (through Thinkvantage Update) I 'unchecked' the update for the fingerprint reader (I read that that fixed it somewhere). 

 

Now it is sleeping!

 

If you haven't tried this then you should.  I thought it was hopeless!

 

Good Luck!

I'm the Me Too, but I'm running W10 on my T61. I didn't notice the problem before the upgrade. (W10 is otherwise fine.)
