My ThinkPad Edge E320 isn't but a few months old, but I have been noticing a problem with it. I want to know if others are facing similar problems and if there is any solution for it.
The laptop powers off completely when I move it. But I have noticed that it does not happen if I am REALLY careful with it, and move it holding the two sides.
There seems to be a 'soft-spot' on the underside of the laptop that causes it to switch off immediately when it's pressured. And moving the laptop holding it at the bottom causes exactly that.
Is anyone else facing such an issue? It would be great if someone could help me out with this.
Non E320 users, if you have an idea about what is happening and might know a solution, please don't hesitate to post about it.

i've resitted the HDD because ive also experienced this problem... but after couple of trips and carry's in the backpack it turns off when i move it or press the upper left part of the keyboard where the hdd a little bit harder or something it turns off... can i put something between the HDD and the motherboard so that connections of those two parts do not interfere ??

I found a solution which seems a permanent fix for this issue.
I bought the E320 for a year. Never had any problem during my honours study. Only from last week, when moving the laptop, the machine instantly shut down off. After a few troubleshooting (battery plug in and AC power), I noticed the problem occurred only when you hold the bottom of the top left side keyboard with pressure.
Google this issue, found a large amount of complaints from Lenovo forum and whirlpool. Thanks for the input of ThunderDuck in whirlpool. I simply placed a thick paper (I chose photo paper) underneath the SSD (the metalic surface caused the short circuit, I suppose), and the problem was fixed.
