Occasionally the PC does not wake up from sleep or hibernation when the LCD is opened into the upright position. 

Applicable models

Occasionally, when shutting down, putting your PC to sleep, or hibernation and then returning from one of these states with fast boot enabled this will occur.

If this does occur, you can press a key on your keyboard, the power button on the PC. If this happens to the VAIO Z Flip, it is possible to wake the PC up by physically converting to tablet mode.

The brightness of the built-in LCD display is changed to the lowest level when shutting the PC down and starting it back up in specific situations. 

Applicable models
•           VJZ13B *
•           VJZ131 *
•           VJZ12A *
•           VJS131 *

Shutting your PC down while it is connected to an external display while displaying only on the external display, “Show only on 2” then turning it back on and changing your display mode to “Duplicate these displays”, “extend these displays”, or “Show only on 1” may result in your onboard display having its brightness set to the lowest.

When this symptom occurs, you can adjust the brightness with the function shortcut: Fn + F5/6 Keys.
