Thinkpad X200 Cannot Resume from Standby (by Closing Lid)

I am having such problem lately. I suspect it is caused by new updates performed by system update,

 

Now my thinkpad could not resume after i made it to go standby by closing lid. When i open the lid, the standby LED just light up and dont respond to Fn+Suspend or power button, and the screen is just blank. Plugging in the power gives the same reult. The issue really annoys me as i always need to shutdown and bootup again. Any sugguestion? My thinkpad is Thinkpad X200 and the OS is Windows XP SP2

Re: Thinkpad X200 Cannot Resume from Standby (by Closing Lid)

you did not give the model information for your X200 so the question is: was it originally shipped with Vista and you installed XP/SP2? If that is the case please look at MS fix 917332 (Click Here) . This fix was inclused in the Lenovo XP preload to address just such an issue. May just want to install XP/SP3 to get this fix as well as many others that may be missing from you XP load.

My OS has been upgraded to Windows XP SP3. I didnt even let me start the hotfix setup. I should have this hotfix issue fixed in SP3 installed.

 

I will be calling lenovo suport in the morning, and i hope it isnt a hardware problem. meanwhile, i am shutting down my x200 before i close the lid..... i hope i can fix this soon.
