NUC11PAHi7 Modern Standby Issues - "bootable device has not been detected" and front LED issues

adprom

Have just bought a NUC11PAHi7 NUC. Have experienced some of the same issues that have been detailed in other threads with the previous generation NUCs which appear to be related to the modern standby mode.

In particular, the following behaviour has been noted:

1. On wake from standby, the "a bootable device has not been detected" error

2. Sporadic sleep behaviour generally

3. After waking from standby the HDD LED remains disabled and the power LED is blinking slowly like it is still in sleep mode.

Have performed firmware upgrades multiple times, it is a fresh W10 Pro install with all of the latest drivers, including chipset updated to the latest versions.

It seems that this is as simple as buggy behaviour related to the modern standby function which is frustrating as it does not seem it can be fixed by the end user at this stage.

Hi @adprom 

The Modern Standby, never worked good for me and in NUC FN I've changed the Sleep Type from default "Modern Standby" to "Legacy S3 Standby". Now, in NUC FN, every thing is back to normal.

So, if you want to try this solution (i.e. changing the Sleep Type tp Legacy S3 Standby), I describe the method to try it. In the beginning  I want to advice you to prepare full backup of your drive before starting, to protect your data in case that something goes wrong.

After preparing backup, put your system into SAFE Boot mode:

  1. While in Windows, press Windows key + r. Run msconfig
  2.  Chose Boot tab and check Safe boot. Reboot your system. The computer will reboot in SAFE mode.

Since in NUC PA, there is no option in BIOS to changing the Sleep Type, use the procedure described in reddit blog: Getting back S3 sleep and disabling modern standby under Windows 10

After updating the registry, per the above procedure, restart your NUC (still in SAFE Mode). Once NUC reboots, set the boot mode back to NORMAL:

  1. While in Windows, press Windows key + r. Run msconfig
  2.  Chose Boot tab and uncheck Safe boot. Reboot your system. The computer will reboot in NORMAL mode and Legacy S3 Standby.

Legacy S3 Sleep has been removed from the 11th gen NUCs altogether.

Please read my post again and the linked post in reddit blog.

You are not listening. Intel has specifically removed S3 sleep from the 11th gen NUCs. I know what I am doing.

I also do not thinking having to hack together registry changes is a well advised or supportable solution. It is basically a hacky workaround for an issue Intel need to sort out with their firmware and drivers.

 

I don't think linking to a Reddit registry hack is well advised. It certainly is not a solution.

I'm moving to the reddit blog ... they don't have so many rules!

I don't think our friends at Intel have a clue how widespread this issue is

Hi @adprom 

 

We are still investigating this issue and need to confirm a couple of items:

  1. How are you waking up the system from Modern Standby? Power button or USB Keyboard/Mouse?
  2. If you are waking up the system by using a USB keyboard or Mouse, were they connected before entering in sleep mode?

Regards,

Ronny G

Hi,
Waking up is mostly keyboard, but sometimes via the button. Yes, the keyboard and mouse remain connected.

The LED sleep behaviour is particularly curious as it does not seem to accurately remember or recognise the state still pulsing like it is asleep after it has woken up.
