Sleep not working in Windows 7 x200T

Sleep/Standby is no longer working on my Win7 Pro X200T. It worked fine until recently. Now if I use any means to introduce sleep (close lid, FnF4, click sleep, etc.) the HD does something, the screen goes blank, but it does not sleep. The screen remains blank and there is nothing to do but a hard s...

Harryc, Thanks so much for the links! I think that is the way to go. Do you think lenovo would cover this under warranty?

Re: x61s RAM Screw Won't Unsrew... it just spins and spins!

Yes, the screw is captive in the cover. If I drill it out, I won't have a screw there, which would make the cover stick out a bit I think. I think by two options are to (a) use the warranty or (b) take the whole motherboard out. How hard is it to take the whole motherboard out to change the ram? I a...

x61s RAM Screw Won't Unsrew... it just spins and spins!

So I get 2x2GB=4GB DDR2 ram for my x61s (which now has 2x1=2GB dual channel), and went to unscrew the ram plate and install the ram. I have done this procedure on many other thinkpads, so I don't think it is going to be difficult. But when I go to unscrew the second screw (farthest to the right when...

Re: should i upgrade to X200 tablet from x61t

The inking and touch is much improved, the sound is much better, and the screen brightness is much better as well. Battery li...

Hi, I'm installing a new hard drive into my x61t and I noticed the thinkpad video shows a "pull tab" on the old hard drive that needs to be pulled on to get the old one out. How do you transfer the pull tab to the new hard drive? http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-62795.html Thanks, Aris

I agree! Thinkpads are for traveling business men and women, who often want to skype their family while on the road (but don't want to fuss with an external usb video camera) or want to video conference from anywhere. A cheap and useful addition to all tps would be integrated cameras.
