x120e - Power Button Crashes System

2011-04-18, 4:36 AM

I only began experiencing this after updating to the latest Power Manager.  I have it set so that pressing the power button puts the machine into Hibernate.  Instead of doing this, when I press power, it's as if I am hard resetting the laptop.  It begins to reboot and comes up with the "Windows did not shut down correctly" screen and asks me if I want to boot into safe mode.

 

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Hello,


I have not heard of this specific issue before, but I am wondering if the hibernation file might be corrupt.  Try disabling hibernation, which should remove the file, then enabling it to create a new one.  Does that make any difference?

 

Regards,

wyld,

 

yes, I am having the exact same problem.  I was about to post the exact same topic until I saw this one.

 

I am unsure whn it started happening, I updated all (I assume the power manager was updated as well) and the hibernate option for the power button crashes as well.

 

I tried changing the power button to another scheme then back to hibernate, did not fix,

Does the system crash only when you press the power button to hibernate? 

 

As in, does the same crash occur if you select hibernate from the start menu or hibernate using fn + f12?

 

I don't have this issue.  I personally changed the power button's function to hibernate when pressed in the power manager (it was set to sleep previously) and press the power button to go into hibernate.  It does its thing, hibernates, wakes up fine.

 

 

To: Someguy123, are you using an OCZ SSD by chance?  Probably a complete red herring, but some SSDs are known to blue screens when hibernating / waking from hibernation and was wondering if you had the same one that wyld has.  Mine is Patriot Inferno 60GB.

 

The Power Manager version I have installed is version 3.48.

I don't have this issue either, I also changed the power button to hibernate, lid close is set to sleep. And I have a OCZ Vertex2 SSD, and It doesnt affect it.

I have this problem as well. It's intermittent and does not happen most of the time. I haven't figured out how to reproduce it yet. I'm also having the problem where you can't change the screen brightness after resuming from hibernation. I don't think I had that problem until after I read about it on this forum. :smileyindifferent:

Exactly same here. I have

1. Installed all Windows and Thinkpad updates

2. Assigned power button to Hibernate

 

Then 2 of 4 times, pressing the power button led to an instant restart of machine. (x120e with E-350, 2G ram and not using SSD. Power Manager Version 3.52)

Hello,

 

I am not sure if it will help since this may be a different issue, but in this message one of Lenovo's staff mentions some new drivers being available for the X120e. Perhaps installing those will make a difference.

 

Regards,

I'm currently noticing this as well, it occurs mostly when the x120e experiences changes in power states such as coming out of sleep, in and out of AC power (switching from batt to AC then back, etc.).

 

I was able to recreate the symptoms using Power Manager version 3.52 to 3.48, however 3.40 which has official support for the x120e is so far showing no signs of the problem.

 

I'm uncertain as to what the newer versions offer the x120e.

 

My setup is a 8GB E-350, 240GB OCZ Vertex 2 using Power Manager 3.40
