Deep sleep (Intel RST) on X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (Windows 10)

2021-02-08, 10:18 AM


I was using deep sleep (Intel Rapid Start Technology) successfully on Windows 7. There was no problem with it and after 3 hours of sleep the notebook hibernated. After opening the lid it always waked up.


After migrating on W10, the notebook does not wake up after opening the lid. The power button is just flashing slowly and notebook is unresponsive. I can only perform hard power off by holding power button for few seconds. As I understood, Inter RST is not supported under Windows 10. So I have disabled it in BIOS and problem is gone, but notebook remains just in sleep state, when it is closed.


Is there any solution for similar behavior in Windows 10 as it was in Windows 7?


My HDD is: Samsung SSD 850 EVO M.2


Thanks and regards

Welcome to the Community Forums.


Make sure you have the latest Management Engine Interface drivers for your system board. These drivers control the sleep function and the communication between hardware during this function.

You can find and install the newest drivers from the Lenovo Support Page
Just plot in the serial number for your device and hit enter, might have to hit it twice. Then head to Drivers & Software then the Chipset section.

Windows have had a long record of sleep and hibernation issues, especially hibernate. I'd suggest turning this off in power plan advanced settings and just leaving the sleep function on. You might want to try to set USB selective suspend setting to disabled as well as PCI Express (Link State Power Management) to off can help resolve recovery from sleep states, as well as turning off Fast Startup.


- Navigate to the windows icon in the bottom left, click it and start typing "Control Panel"
- While in Control Panel, navigate to the "Power Options" Icon / link.
- In the left column, click "Choose what closing the lid does"
- Click "Change Settings that are currently unavailable"
- Unmark "Turn on fast startup"

(This does not affect Restarting the computer), but when it starts up again from sleep and/or hibernation.
