X200 tablet / Windows 7 / USB causes notebook hang on sleep

I have an X200 tablet running Windows 7. If a USB device is plugged in (mouse, drive etc) and the notebook enters sleep mode after some time (as defined in the  power plan), an attempt to awaken it results in a notebook hang. The notebook appears to wake up but the login screen is never displayed. The screen remains blank.

The power plan has the "USB selective suspend setting" disabled but the same issue occurs even when this setting is enabled.


I have deleted the USB drivers and reinstalled them. All MS and Thinkpad drivers and updates are current.


Has anyone else encountered the same issue? Greatly appreciate any feedback on remediation methods.

Did you update your BIOS to the latest version?
