X220 wireless doesn't work for up to a minute when resuming from sleep or hibernate

2011-10-12, 13:42 PM

Hello all. I have an X220 with 6201, latest drivers downloaded from the Lenovo site. Whenever I sleep or hibernate, when I resume computer (on Win7) I get either a litte red x or a little glowing orb on my wireless connection, which indicates "Wireless not connected - Connections are available".  But I can't connect for up to a minute!! If I leave it alone it will connect on its own. What is going on, this is really becoming a problem!

If you can't afford to wait a minute of so to reconnect, then use Fn+F5 to turn off all wireless devices before you hibernate and use it again to to switch them back on when you power up again.

 

Cheers,

Really? That's your answer?  I am identifying a problem that does not occur with any other laptops I use, nor with a smartphone running Android for example.  Therefore it is a problem, and the problem does lie with the Thinkpad. I would like a helpful solution rather than an enjoinder to just wait.

There should be something that is called instant resume.

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/Configuring-Instant-Resume/ta-p/389073

switch that on and it should resolve the issue (well to a certain extent).
