Have you updated all the drivers installed on the laptop?

Tech Support Specialist: Harold Hanna, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Also, have you updated the BIOS firmware? This is most likely to be a driver/BIOS issue, so ensuring both are updated is the best way to resolve this issue. I do see a lot of other people are having an issue similar to yours.

Try going into Device manager, then open FHID Device. Do you see that listed?

Tech Support Specialist: Harold Hanna, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

From Lenovo FHID Device, open UMDF HID minidriver, then go to the power management tab. From there, there should be a box that states "Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power". Ensure that is unchecked.

dont see FHID
Tech Support Specialist: Harold Hanna, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

I believe in the device manager it would be under System Devices. Look for "Lenovo FHID Device"

And have you updated the firmware of your BIOS? There is a newer version that came out that involves the not waking from sleep issue. If you'd like me to check for these items myself, you can request my ability to connect remotely. However, we can continue like this as well.

no not ther just double checked
Tech Support Specialist: Harold Hanna, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Alright. Go to Lenovo's website and type in your model number, serial if it asks, etc. Then have it list all available software. Look for a BIOS/UEFI update. That will be the BIOS firmware update we will be wanting to install. Download the file and let it update the firmware. Be very careful to not allow any interruptions during this update.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Harold Hanna, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Let me know if you find the firmware alright and if you have any questions before attempting to install it. We may have to see if the update resolves the problem, so even after you rate my level of assistance (from 1 to 5 stars), I will keep this dialogue open. This is for in case you see the condition is still not resolved, you will not have to pay anything additional to continue trouble shooting where we left off.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
