I am sorry to hear you are having problems but let me help you.
Since you have an OEM system it is important to install the bios updates provided by them. The Bios updates contain new fixes for known issues so that is the best step to take.
Besides these steps, you can install the IRST for your system. Here is the download link:
In case you are still having problems after installing the driver, I recommend you contacting Lenovo so they can provide the updates and other special configurations.

I have been bugged with this problem as well and FINALLY found a solution that really works.
The biggest problems seems to be that for Rapid Start to work, you need to create a hibernation partition with the size of your RAM + 1 GB (if you have 32 GB RAM, choose 33 GB).
Download the following *extensive* guide (Intel Rapid Start Technology Deployment Guide) from Intel and follow the steps 1-5 from section 4.2 *meticulously* and you will resolve the problem (like I just did)
Hope this helps everyone.
