I recently got an X1 Yoga and found that finger print sensor is not active while the system is in sleep state. I need to wake up the X1 Yoga wih poewer button first, and wait for few seconds until the sensor become ready and swipe.
With my old system (Thinkpad T520), finger print sensor was active during sleep state (LED by the sensor was on while the system is in sleeping state) and I coudl wakeup the system with finger print swipe. I checked if there's anything in the X1 Yoga BIOS setup, but I couldn't find anything. Am I missing something or it's simply not possible with X1 Yoga?

Did you ever solve this? I'm pretty sure the X1 Carbon (5th gen) I was testing allows waking up from sleep via fingerprint, but the X1 Yoga (2nd gen) stays asleep unless I click the power button. Which is a bit of a pain, given that it's tiny and requires a fingernail to click it.

A few gererations ago ThinkPads lost the ability to power on via fingerprint. That may have also affected wake from sleep. I confess I haven't tested that - but I will.
All my current ThinkPads wil wake from sleep with a press of the Fn button ... if that helps.
