Windows 7: Lenovo T430u Hangs Whenever Shutdown or Sleep

07 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 BIT
Lenovo T430u Hangs Whenever Shutdown or Sleep

Hi All,

For the last 3-4 days every time I put my laptop into sleep mode or click shut down, it goes through the normal shut down process, the screen turns black, but then never turns off.

This happens when the lid is closed, sleep or hibernate is clicked, or if shut down is clicked.

I'm running Windows 7 with the latest Nvidia drivers and windows updates.

I've used BSOD viewer, appcrashviewer and wincrashviewer but none seem to be recording these system hangs.

I did disk check and it found no problems, as well as windows repair and it found nothing. When I go to "Check Memory" within windows repair it attempts to restart, but does the same hang when trying to restart and thus doesn't run.

I also started up the laptop with everything but windows startup programs not running to see if that solved the hanging but it still was happening.

It seems to be a driver problem or something having to do with the software, but I cant track down what the problem is.

Are there any other programs I can run to try and diagnose the problem and fix it?

Thank you!

And in addition, my PC fails when I put it to sleep....
