  1. Lenovo 100S-11IBY screen doesn't wake up from sleep (Black/blank screen)


    Had to wipe out the old Windows 10 Home version on this computer as after a Windows Update session over a year ago. BitLocker decided to encrypt the primary drive the computer.


    Was never asked where to store the recovery key to save is so I could get in after being prompted on bootup to enter a BitLocker recovery key.


    Only solution was to reinstall Windows 10. It was a pain and lose of all the files stored on the computer.


    I was able to create a bootable EFI USB key using the Windows 10 MediaCreationTool1903 on a different computer, boot it, start Windows 10 installation, delete the old primary boot partition and reinstall Windows 10 version 1903 (OS Build 18362.356) only to be presented with this new problem. I have no idea what version the original Windows 10 Home was but it did not have this problem. But all that has nothing to do with my current problem.


    First Sleep Mode Problem


    Once the computer goes to sleep, the power profile is set to shut off the screen after 4 minutes and to sleep after 5 minutes when running on battery power, waking the machine is problematic.


    After 4 minutes the screen turns off, if I press a key or touch pad the screen will come back on; however,

    after 5 minutes when the computer goes to sleep - power light goes off indicating the computer has went to sleep, it will not. The power light on the laptop lights up as if it has awakened; however, the screen remains blank/black.


    If I press the power button a proper amount of time (yet to be determined sometimes just a short press and release the screen will wake up but it takes a few seconds, other times I hold the button a couple of seconds and the screen awakes only to shut off again). Reading another post, the answer posted mentioned closing the lid and opening it again. This method to awaken the screen works! The screen wakes up every time. But, I should not have to shut the lid and open it. A keyboard or touch pad press should make it come back on.


    Second Sleep Mode Problem


    If I use the Start menu -> Power icon -> Sleep option, the power light does not go off but the screen does go blank. Press a key or move the mouse before the 5 minutes of the power profile actually puts the computer to sleep the screen lights up to display the main screen that is shown where one would be asked to press Ctrl-Alt-Del to login. Currently using a local account without a password for testing so never actually have to login move the mouse and that screen pans up to reveal my open applications.


    Using this method to put the computer to sleep does not work! But, I can get back in until the power profile puts the laptop to sleep - power LED goes off. Strange!


    Please, help

    :)

  2. Screens black after waking machine from sleep

    Hi Anthony,

    Does it only happen when waking up the computer from sleep?

    To check for possible causes of this issue, we suggest you to run Power Troubleshooter. To do so, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key.
    • Type Troubleshooting.
    • On the left side, click View all.
    • Click Power.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions.
    If the issue still persists, you may update the Chipset driver from the device manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. Screen goes black and won't change till sleep

    Basically, when I load up a game the screen goes black. The only way to get out of this is to put the computer to sleep and wake it up. After this there is a chance it will do it all over again.

    This problem also seems to happen when I don't use my laptop for 30 minutes or whatever so it turns the screen off. When I wiggle the mouse or hit a key to wake the screen up, there is a chance it will be just black and I have to put it to sleep and wake it up and try again.

    Ideas of what is going on? Bumped this on 3/2/2014 because I thought it was fixed a month or so ago but apparently not. Have tried to use ONLY manufacturer drivers with no luck. Updating to latest Nvidia drivers also provides no fix. Something I should do in the bios?
