New T440s doesn't seem to be entering 30-day standby mode.
I did upgrade the RAM and SSD after purchase. RAM is now 12GB and SSD was cloned directly from the factory drive. In Disk Manager, I do see a 12GB partition that I presume is the sleep partition? Computer is running Windows 8.1, all updates applied, as far as I can tell everything relevant is up to date. Power Manager is not installed (not installed from the factory). Rapid Start is enabled in the BIOS and set to 1 Minute for testing.
I did find that in the Windows power plan selected from the factory that Hybrid Sleep was not enabled (nor was Hibernate). I've enabled Hybrid Sleep.
Still, the computer never enters deep sleep mode. Nothing connected to the computer and no significant changes made to the configuration other than updating to Windows 8.1 and installing some software.
I am just entering some numerial data and found out that there is no num lock key on the new designed keyboard. There is also no description about this in the manual. Do I need to set something to use?
I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the built in 4gb on the T440s, Not a big deal if i cant, just wondering because I can actaully get 2 8gb sticks. how to access the built in stick.I only have the built in right now, adding the one 8( hopefully both) later this week.
I have a T440s lenovo laptop whose motherboard was replaced a few months ago.
Today I wanted to make a clean installation (windows 8) using the recover USB key I created before the motherboard replacement (note that I already used it and it was working before changing the board).
It goes through the different steps, deleting files and creating the partitions, but when it is done the computer is not able to boot on the hardrive. I have the following messages :
Intel (R) Boot agent Ge v1.5.43 copyring (C) 1997-2013 , Intel corporation ............. initializing and establishing link...
PXE-E61 - Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F - Exiting intel boot agent (so looks like it is trying to boot on the pci lan)
Then it comes back to the boot menu where I have a choice between : ATA HDD0 PCI LAN
If I select the first one nothing happens, and the the PCI LAN gives the above error message.
I tried to reset the bios parameters to default but it did not work. So I am wondering if it has something to do with some change in the motherboard ID, bios version....
I also launched the lenovo quick storage device test to check the hard drive and all was ok. I had to change a bios option to UEFI (the new motherboard was set by default to Legacy, messing up all the recovery process)
My LAN port seems to be unstable. I insert the cable and hear the clicking sound but no LED turns on. I have to push the cable further to get the indicator on. It may also disconnect if the cable moves.
Is this a faulty port? And, if so, what does it take to fix it? (i.e. what do they replace/fix?)
Every time I open one of the Lenovo apps like like Support or Companion, I get the message "Enhanced functions for this application are available". I click the message, a browser opens up, I download "dependecypackage.exe", I install, setup asks for a restart and I let it, and the process repeats again and again. I keep getting this "Enhanced functions..." message. It is driving me crazy. How do I end this cycle?
When I connect the USB 3.0 dock to my T440s, I then cannot get the second LCD monitor to be recognised by Windows via the USB3.0.
The monitor is not being recognised as it is is not seen as one of the optional displays in the 'Intel HD Graphics control panel' window.
The driver however for the second monitor is fully up to date and it works fine when I connect the LCD to the VGA port directly on my computer. Also the second monitor is being recognised partly by the windows OS as it comes up as a second screen under the 'screen resolution' window.
My set up is shown below. I am thinking that perhaps there is an issue with either the NVIDIA or Intel HD graphics chip. I read somewhere that windows uses one or the other depending on the load. I am worried that there is some problem with that mechanism. All driver are up to date.

I got a new T440s about 2 weeks ago and sometimes it doesn't wake up after it goes into sleep mode. It gets stuck on a black screen and the mouse cursor is visible, but moving the mouse or pressing keys on the keyboard fails to wake it up. When this happens, I have to restart the computer by holding down the power button for 10 seconds. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and hybrid sleep is off. I'm just really confused because sometimes it wakes up perfectly and sometimes it doesn't.
Realtek 2x2 11b/g/n wireless LAN M.2 adapter does not detect my home 5ghz network. Driver (version 2012.10.224.2014) is up to date. 2ghz band works fine. Could it be that 5ghz is not supported by this $2k laptop?
I just recently received my first lenovo laptop, the T440s. The overall built quality is excellent and performance is great. However, I realized there is a dead pixel on the screen. I am stilI within the 21 days return limit. I am wondering if I am able to get an exchange for one without such defect and not subject to the restocking fee?l
I installed clean install windows 8.1 (iso directly from Microsoft) and I was thinking, that Lenovo System Update will install all necessary drivers and tools for me.Even newest bios wasn't offered for install. However, on lenovo's website all drivers was available.
I just bought a new T440s at Lenovo online. But when I started my coumpter, I found that all the storage of my hard disk is under C. I want to partition them into C , D ,F and E. I don't want to get the new system mess up.
I purchased online a T440s brand new. I opened the box for the first time myself. When I enter BIOS it asks for password and I just hit enter without entering any password. I can enter the BIOS but i can not change any settings.
What can I do? Can a brand new thinkpad come with a BIOS password out the box?
I get conflicting information regarding the type of password. First image says it's power on which can be removed but bios says its supervisor.
Just today the trackpad on my t440s completely shutoff. When I went to examine the driver it said it had been disabled. Unfortunately, for some reason, the Device Manager wouldn't allow me to reinable it. And so I decided to uninstall the driver.
After doing so, I looked up the correct driver and attempted to install it. To my dismay, I recieved this message:
How come my T440s doesn't have the Lenovo Energy Manager program? I remember my other Ideapads had it. ThinkPads don't come with that program preinstalled? I wanted to do a battery gauge reset/recalibration.
This is a brand new T440s, i7, W7 Pro that I have had for 3 days. On the first power-up, the system date was set on "tomorrow," in other words, one day ahead. I reset the date, time, country and time zone. It is set to sync with the internet. Each morning now when I power it up, the system date is "yesterday," one day behind. I have to manually change the date each morning. How can I fix this permanently. Other than this date glitch, it's a beautiful machine.
I have a set of 6 new T440s laptops along with Ultradocks. I ordered 2 sets of 3, with a month inbetween. I am having a problem where all of my Ultradocks produce a very loud buzzing noise from the connected speakers whenever the laptop is turned off or undocked. If the laptop is docked and powered on, everything sounds fine. I have contacted support and they are sending me a replacement dock, but since the issue is so consistent and effects all my docks.
A new T440s makes multiple times problems after start or sleep mode. Windows 7 comes up but instead of login screen a black screen appears. Just the F7 wireless control gives response. When it happens after wake a programs are runing in background but the screen is black.
I did already all updates, just not my BIOS, it is 2.11 but now 2.19 is available. I hesitate BIOS updates.
I could return the laptop since it is within the 2 week return garantie.
I recently bought a t440s from a friend, And i wanted to lookup its warranty.The serial under the battery is recognised by the lenovo warranty check, But in the bios the serial shows up as R8000000, Could this become a problem for me in the future? refrain from bumping your thread(s) / post(s) more frequently than 3 days. Doing so, unfairly, pushes other members' threads downwards.
I just got my T440s a couple of weeks ago. I stupidly ordered it with only 4GB of RAM, thinking that I couple upgrade it myself if neccessary (and it would be much cheaper that way).
Well it seems 4GB definately isn't enough for my needs, so I ordered another 4GB stick. I installed it, plugged the machine in and powered it up. And was met with the tone for a memory error. Probably the module isn't seated correctly, but I suppose it could be faulty.
Anyway, you'll notice I said that I plugged it in before powering up. That means that the internal battery has been reactivated. I can confirm this because it will start (and give me the error) without being plugged in and without the external battery connected. So my problem is, how do I disable the internal battery again to remove or reseat the problem DIMM, since I can't get to the UEFI/BIOS configuration to disable it.
I was looking for the software to disable the touchpad. I saw a video that had the option but it was windows 8 and I have been unable to find the same options for 7. The thinkpad tab in the screen shot is not showing up in 7.
I have a T430s with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit that is not entering 30 Day Standby like it should. The issue seems to lie with Power Manager.
Inside of Power Manager I have the 30 Day Standby option checked, just like I should, and it is also reflected in the BIOS setup as well. If I change the BIOS transition time for 30 Day Standby to "Immediately" and start Windows, but don't log in, and put the computer to sleep. It almost immediately wakes up and transitions into 30-day standby.
Now I know that Power Manager has a "hard coded" setting of 3 hours, regardless of the BIOS setting. So after 3 hours, Power Manager will automatically wake up the computer like it would to transfer to 30-day standby, but it just goes back to normal sleep.
Today while on battery, it did this twice (according to the Windows Event Log) Wake up, and go back to Sleep / Standby (S3). In the logs, the wake source is listed as "Unknown" when it goes back to sleep 10 or so seconds later is listed as "Application API".
Like I said, I was running on battery, and I also went into device manager and unchecked anything I could think of that would have an option of "Allow this device to wake the computer". I also disabled the Wake-on-LAN option for the LAN card. Plus I had all USB devices unplugged, as well as no Ethernet cable in the LAN port anyway. Plus it does transition to the 30-Day standby if I force the computer to sleep at the login screen before Power Manager is loaded.
I just wanted to add I should have all driver / software updates as of Dec. 1 or so. I'm running Power Manager 6.63.1 and Power Management Driver 126.96.36.199.
