Windows 10 does not wake from SLEEP mode [solved]

October 3rd, 2016 · No Comments

I’ve been warned about using the sleep mode, as it’s unreliable and can sometimes get your laptop stuck in a SLEEP mode, not being able to wake up with the usual lid opening or power button press.

Today I stupidly put my LENOVO Z50 to sleep as I needed to USB charge some gadget. After a while the laptop would not wake up. Long pressing the power button wouldn’t help.

Luckily I’ve been able to find this method that worked miraculously, here are the steps:

  1. Disconnect the laptop charger and remove the laptop battery
  2. Wait a few minutes
  3. Long press the power button, about 20 seconds
  4. Connect the charger and battery
  5. Long press the power button

As I mentioned, my laptop woke up during step 5. Let me know if it worked for you.

To sum it up, SLEEP mode is a gamble, simple web search reveals that there are lots of issues with it. I strongly advise to use HYBERNATION mode which is stable and reliable.
