X1 Carbon 6th Gen - Wifi drops during sleep

I have an X1 Carbon 6th Gen running Windows 10. Even though I have unchecked the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option in the Power Management tab for my wifi adapter, when I place my laptop in sleep mode the wifi connection is dropping.

I was under the impression that the Modern Standby capability of the 6th Gen would keep my wifi up during sleep to allow background updates. Is this correct and if so why it the wifi connection dropping?

Re: X1 Carbon 6th Gen - Wifi drops during sleep

Hello and welcome,

 

IIRC the setting you have changed applies to the machine while it's awake.  The Modern Standby options are elsewhere.

 

I don't have a Modern machine so I scrounged this off the web.  Do you have a similar option?

Sorry about that.  I'm shooting blind here...

 

Anything in Vantage?  I think we're going to need someone with an X1C6 or X1Y3 to tell us where that setting is - if it's available at all.

On X1Y3 and Win10 1809.  Not the same wording but maybe it keeps wifi alive.

Re: X1 Carbon 6th Gen - Wifi drops during sleep

I have since noticed when running "powercfg /a", I do not see the "S0 Low Power Idle" option as being available. Can this be disabled?

C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /a
The following sleep states are available on this system:
Hibernate
Fast Startup

The following sleep states are not available on this system:
Standby (S1)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.

Standby (S2)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.

Standby (S3)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.

Standby (S0 Low Power Idle)

Hybrid Sleep
Standby (S3) is not available.
