Very Slow Wake From Sleep - Razer Blade 15 Base (2018 - 1060 Model)

  1. My Blade (base model) has been having a constant sleep issue since I got it: when I open the laptop to wake it from sleep (or push a key), it takes upwards of 10-15 seconds for the laptop to fully wake up.

    I have tried everything I can think of to speed up the wake up process: upgrade the SSD, fresh reinstall of Windows, uninstalling Synapse, fiddling with power settings, disconnecting the secondary drive - and none of these has sped up the wake up time at all. It is definitely only a Windows problem - the wake up is nearly instant in Ubuntu and a few other Linux distros.

    Is this behavior normal for the Blade, does it also occur on the Advanced model? This has to be the slowest waking Windows PC I have ever seen. Old videos of the 2014 and 2015 Blades show it waking faster than my 2018 model. Even my uncle's old mobile workstation takes only a second to wake on Windows 10.

    Does anyone know anything about this issue? It's minor, but has become very frustrating over time.

    This is unusual. Please try performing these steps:

    1. Open Command Prompt (Admin) (Right click on Start Menu)
    2. Type the command powercfg -h off and hit Enter
    3. Once done, restart the system.
  3. Thanks, but I tried that and it made no discernible difference. Still takes about 10 seconds to wake from sleep.

    Hmm. Let me check if we have available updates that can help address this issue. Please PM me your Blade's serial number. Make sure to include the link to this thread as well for reference.

    I just purchased the RB 15 (Base model) and I am having the same issues. Its one of the slowest wake up speeds I have seen and its been only 3 days since I have had this laptop. Did somebody find any solution to this?

    Same Problem here. Had this issue since the beginning. Just googled for a solution cause it really starts to annoy me
  7. Same problem here .... and getting worse, in the past couple of days the computer won't wake up from sleep at all, and it took multiple tries of opening/closing the lid to finally wake it up. Is there an issue with the hardware?

    I am also having this same issue, sometimes my RB stealth 13 will not wake up either. Just purchased this in June.
  9. I found that if I first open the lid a tiny bit first (maybe just 1mm) then it turns on every single time.
