    I use 30 day standby with my 16gb m2 drive (instead of windows hibernate) to help prolong the life of my ssd

    Can you do it in Windows 8.1?

    What are the steps?

    Thank you

    All I did to get it working was:
    - Changed the partition id on my 16GB cache m2 ssd to be the special 30 day standby id (as per Lenovo Support Express - Considerations to deploy Intel Rapid Start Technology) - I did find a better guide than this, but cannot seem to find it (will have a hunt and update post if I do find it)
    - Made sure 30 day standby was enabled in bios
    - Made sure 30 day standby was enabled in the Lenovo metro settings power app

    And now, after 2-3 hours of sleeping, it enters the 30 day standby

    I can clearly hear cracking CPU sound when it is completely silent. Is it faulty in some way? Can you hear it too? Should I go to warranty?

    I think part of the problems with the AC card is power settings. I had problems with mine at first b(when on battery), changed one of the power settings, and the problem went away.

    Hmm, thanks for posting this. Ordered mine with the 512GB HD and MSATA cache drive, and will be upgrading it to a 1TB SSD myself. Now I know I can put that cache drive to good use!

    I bought mine direct from UK Lenovo - in the UK the 730m is a configurable option.

    Intel 7260AC working fine here, first in win7 x64, then in win8.1 x64. I opted to switch to 8.1 later for the sake of battery life. I kept all the wifi card power saving settings enabled.

    So I received my unit yesterday in Canada, and it seems like a great little machine. I seem to have the so called crappy LG screen, and its certainly not as sharp and vibrant as it could be, but I'm sure there are some colour settings I can try, and its more than passable by my standards.
    1. Is there a good guide or resource to configure the colour/contrast/font aliasing (clearType) settings?
    2. HwInfo shows me that by default Intel's VTX (virtualization) instruction set is available but disabled. Any idea how to enable this? Id like to get a VM running with Linux, and would prefer to have hardware instruction support rather then pure software emulation.
    3. What upgrades should I get to various drivers and the BIOS? Is there anything in particular I should upgrade from the default install?
