Thinkpad X380 Fingerprint Scanner too slow to start up after waking the computer from sleep

2018-12-21, 10:51 AM



I have a new Thinkpad X380 Yoga Type 20 LJ and am experiencing the following problem with my fingerprint scanner:


When I start my computer from a completely shutdown state; the white light on the scanner lights up as soon as the lock screen comes up and I can scan my finger --> no issues whatsoever.


But, when I put my computer to sleep and open the lid again after a few minutes have passed; the lock screen comes up promptly but the white light on the fingerprint scanner needs atleast 10-15 secs more to come up and only then can I scan my finger. This really screws up the whole fast wake up experience.


Looking forward to a prompt response or solution


Thank you.
