T61p: Cannot wake computer from hibernation despite changing the power settings XP

2009-03-25, 21:24 PM

After some time away from the computer, it seems to be sleeping or hibernating (I don't know the difference). The screen is dark. Sometimes, I can wiggle the mouse or pad and it wakes up, but now, I have to hold down the on/off button and power off and restart.

 

I went into Power Management and turned off everything I could. I've tried using the FN keys. Hibernation is unchecked.

 

I'm so frustrated. The troubleshooting was useless. And I called Lenovo twice and got a complete runaround. They sent me to dealers for government!

 

I love my two Lenovo computers, but their support is the worst I've ever seen. I hope someone can help.

 

Thanks,

Susan

In control panel, power options try setting everything to Never (Turn Off Monitor, HDD, System Standby) and see if you have any similar issues afterwards.

Hi,

 

I think I solved the problem. I have a T61p with XP.

 

Someone at work said I needed to discharge the battery and told me how to do that. So I just did that about 30 minutes ago and was able to wake the computer after that!

 

I am now going to follow your instructions.

 

I'm hoping that will fix it!

 

Thanks,

Susan
