X1 Extreme slow to wake from sleep

2019-01-08, 20:34 PM

This is just a small thing, but my X1 Extreme feels like it takes awfully long to wake from sleep. Opening the lid of my laptop, I expect it to be ready to go immediately, especially with a supposedly excellent SSD. But the screen stays black for a second or two, then the power button flashes, a few more seconds go by, the screen finally turns on, a few more seconds and Windows Hello decides to activate, the mouse finally starts to respond, and then I'm finally in. Just feels awfully janky for a performance device. Anyone experience this or have any fixes?

After sending my laptop in for my other issue (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Extreme-freezes-when-closing-laptop/m-p/4325326/thread-id/95384/highlight/false#M96148) it seems a little better. At least Windows Hello activates almost instantly after waking. But it still takes several seconds for the actual monitor to turn on. Do other people not have this issue? Or are people just really accepting of this being so slow?

This is slow for me as well.  Should be immediate with a pcie 1TB ssd, 32gb of ram, etc.

I know what you mean, I just got an X1 Extreme, and am a little dissapointed with both boot and resume from sleep speeds. There is one thing you can do to (possibly) speed up your resume time a little. If you go to your power plan, and change advanced power settings, you'll see an option for PCI Express --> Link State Power Management, and change both on battery and on plugged in to off. Basically, this stops your computer from killing power to the pcie slot when not in use. In addition, you could change the Hard disk --> 'Turn off hard disk after' setting to 0 for both battery/plugged in, to make it never do so. I've done both on my laptop, but haven't really had a chance to see if it makes much of a difference. Let me know if it does anything for you.

Thanks for the tips, I'll try them out. I also found EasyResume in Lenovo Vantage. Basically it makes it work how I would have expected anyway, but I think the additional battery drain is pretty noticeable, and it comes with it's own issues. If I ever plug my computer into power while it's in this easy resume state, it wakes up while it's closed, fans spinning. Opening and closing again fixes it, but come on...
