I'm using the Lenovo X270 and am running Windows 10. After closing the lid and then re-opening some time later, the screen is still blank and couldn't wake up. But I know the OS is still running as I can still ping it, turn off/on the mute.
I'm using the latest version the Lenovo is providing. I'm also trying out all the older versions.... it seemed that the older versions are occuring lesser as compared to the newer ones. But it's still happening.
We purchased 3 other of the same models and all of us are experiencing the same issues.
It's similar to the case here at

I've done as per instructed. Still the same results. The issue is when the NB lid is closed, the screen will go blank (I suppose it's to save battery). Is there any way I can disable the screen from going blank when I close the lid? Just leave it on and I guess this will definitely solve the problem.
Any updates on this? This usually happens when it's on battery and the lid is closed. Also, in the Lenovo forum https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X270-generic-freeze/td-p/3927475/page/3 X270 generic freeze? - Page 3 - Lenovo Community there are many others who faced the similar issues.
Hello, paullim29. Thank you for your reply.
On the Windows* settings > Power & Sleep > Additional power settings > Choose what closing the lid does > When I close the lid > Select Do nothing when the computer is on Battery and Plugged in.
Let us know how it goes.
Thank you very much for your response, paullim29.
In this case, the Intel® HD graphics controller is not the one in charge to decide what happens when the lid closes, this will actually set by the system manufacturer. Please double check this issue with https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/ Lenovo* Support so they can continue helping you.
I seemed to have sort of resolve the issue (as of now). May need more time to test it out further. This is what I've done after reading some other posts.
I've unchecked the Graphics Hardware Acceleration options in the following applications:
1) Google Chrome
2) Internet Explorer
3) Microsoft Office
It seems that by default, this option is enabled. After disabling them, so far (touch wood), no more hanging.
Does Intel 620 support h/w acceleration?
Thank you for replying back, paullim29.
It is really good to hear that the issue does not occur so far. Indeed, the Intel® HD Graphics 620 supports hardware acceleration. This feature needs to be enabled or disabled from the application or software that you are using.
