    a nice neat little X60 not really useable because it has to be shut down and
    restarted on each use - closing the lid or Fn F4 have no effect, it will not
    go to standby, the option is not present in the shutdown menu.

    Been to Thinkvantage and took all suggested updates, new BIOS as well, no
    effect at all
    Device Manager shows ACPI fixed feature button, Lid, sleep button, Thermal
    zone is there anything we're missing?
    Power manager doen't seem to have anything about standby?

    many thanks for any help - I know there are loads of experts out there

    Found the answer to this- problem was that i was trusting the Productivity
    centre / System Update to check for any drivers needed, but what I actually
    haad to do was manually remove components download and reinstall them until
    everything worked.
    Took about 4 hours in total, but replacing the display drivers eventually
    solved the proble.
    Hope this helps someone else..

    Generally, downloading from the driver matrix provides the best outcome.

    Tedious, yes, but incontrovertible.
