X1 Carbon Gen6 Power and Sleep buttons settings no longer include "Turn off the display"

2019-03-03, 4:35 AM

I like to leave my X1 Carbon Gen 6 running, but I do not want the display to be on. On my ThinkPad X280 and my other X1 Carbon Gen5 I have an option to "Turn off the display" as seen in the side-by-side picture below.

 

 

I have tried to re-installed the OS on the Gen6 unit, but this hasn't helped. Can anybody kind person out there please help me and confirm for me if this feature still works on your Generation 6 model X1 Carbon? 

 

Thank you all in advance!

I don't really have anything to contribute in terms of fixes, but it's still present in mine (X1C6):

 

latest Vantage updates (which are usually a week behind the website)+ latest DCH drivers from Intel (graphics and wifi/bt; bypassing Lenovo, but losing ChromaTune).

I after reading  numerous articles listed below I found the solution was to change one setting in the X1C6 BIOS from "Windows 10" to "Linux" and the features re-appeaered without an OS re-install as Microsoft docs suggest.

 

This new "connected standby" "modern sleep" technology is wreckless when I am troubleshooting a 937 million dollar datacenter and I am glad Lenovo allows us to disable it, even if it isn't documented well enough as it should be.
