X1C4 resume problems w/ new Windows 10 install

#1 Post by TP_guy » Mon May 13, 2019 7:22 pm

I am in the process of putting Windows 10 onto my X1Carbon Gen 4 (shipped with Windows 7) but I cannot get it to resume from long sleep or hibernating. Anyone else have this problem?

Hello to our forums again!

So are you saying that your X1C4 upgraded to Win10 cannot "resume" after "sleeping" your system?
Or are you saying that you cannot "sleep" your system?

1. Yes! We recently installed Win10 Pro (64-bit) to our X1C4, and had no problems at all.
Specifically, no resume problems.

2. By the way, fyi, under the SSD era, it is not a good idea to "hibernate" your system, as this would force a massive multi-GB size write to your SSD every time you "hibernate".

I finally got this working. Apparently the BIOS legacy boot needs to be disabled and only allow for UEFI. Now the system resumes properly after hibernation. (By the way, I meant that the system would start but not restore the machine state.)

Regarding the SSD and hibernating, I do not understand how this is any different from the thousands to tens-of-thousands of file writes that occur every day on the laptop. Most modern SSDs have wear averaging and I have yet to encounter problems after years of continuous service with some my more active workstations that monitor equipment 24x7x365 (logging data to it's sql server, interpreting, aggregating, discarding). In fact we moved to SSDs to avoid some of the more frequent failures of the spinning disks. That being said all of the big servers have spinning disks (albeit raided with hot spares), Where you really run into problems with SSDs is when you start running out of space and the same free space gets used over and over.

Also, the workstation was not "upgraded" but a new M.2 drive was installed and a fresh Windows 10 was installed. Now, I am trying to get the Touchpoint speed back to normal.... What is up with that? Touchpoint works fine with Ubuntu, but the Lenovo/Synaptics drivers almost seem intentionally sabotaged.

Actually just found the fix for the Touchpoint problem as I was writing this. Used this fix: http://yehar.com/blog/?p=4080
