Re: X60 - Screen flickers and screen shutoff - problem with power management or hardware failure?

Anyway, wi-fi off works for me already full battery (about 5h) - no screen shutoff.

Unfortunately I can't rollback, if somebody can mail me those magic video drivers I'll really appreciate it.

Ok...  I'm at BIOS 2.16, Power Manager 1.30b, power management driver 1.44, in a presentation mode power profile.  I've tested this, on battery, connected to a wireless network, for 18 hours with no display issues.  The battery is recharging now, so I'll keep at it today.

18h - that's huge battery :)

Looks like shutoff related to some kind of combination of lenovo and 3-rd party drivers. Is it any way to wipe completely all lenovo drivers from xp? to clean registry etc?

Guys from lenovo, I can send you my x60 with screen shutoff issue for your test. Or exchange it to your 18h laptop :)

I updated my drivers about three weeks ago and that's when I started noticing a the flickering.  It only happens after I log on. and then maybe once every 45 minutes to an hour it will flicker.  I didn't have this problem before.  My screen doesn't shut off.

@bloo:

Where can I find out about the Power Manager version? Which graphics driver do you use? Which graphics card?

Lenovo guys - still no news on this?

Like a said the only way to make my x60 work properly on battery is to disable wireless.

I will add a meeto to this.

I have an X60 with identical problems (randomly blank/blue/black/grey screen that a sleep/wake will "fix"), there are also other forums out there with info on this that might help in the (seeming) absence of a fix from lenovo/microsoft so far on this.

I have this problem too...

It began after i was updating the Intel Driver in April!

 

Strangeis also, that the Presentation Director doesn't work on Factory level before I have update the Intel Driver...

 

It would be nice if this problem can be identified soon...
