Power button problems - ThinkPad tablet (android)

[ Edited ]

Anyone else have problems powering on the device? I sometimes have to press the power button several times, then sometimes, and I keep trying to vary how long I press it before it actually turns on. Is that just me/do I need to get it replaced?

Re: Power button problems

This seems to be a trait of the TPT and manifests itself in different ways.

 

Some people have had probs getting the device to wake when charging. Mine decided it didn't want to turn on at all one day ... and has refused to ever since.

 

Some major bugs in the power management?

Re: Power button problems

I'll assume that's more of a software issue and keep myself happy then...

Re: Power button problems

Compared to my other Android devices (Flyer, Desire etc), I notice a split second delay after pressing the power button on the Thinkpad Tablet before it powers on. So far, mine has switched on 100% of the time with a quick press of the power button, just have to put up with that slight delay.

Re: Power button problems

  • A quick press on the power button wakes the TPT from sleep
  • A long pess (several seconds) is required to turn on the TPT from power-off
  • If the battery is completely discharged, it wil not turn on even if the USB charger is plugged in - you need to wait until the battery is partially charged.Overzealous discharge protection, I think.

Re: Power button problems

+1 for this power button/wake issue. Sometimes the tablet will go into a deep sleep and it takes multiple attempts for it to start again. Very annoying and needs to be fixed via software update

Re: Power button problems

Depends. If it is on and just in standby, plug it in or unplug it and it will wake up.

If it is off, you are out of luck.

Power Button switch fell off the motherboard

The power switch of my tablet just fell off the motherboard, be careful when you press the power button, a heavy press will push it off the board. Looks like a bad solder.

Have you contacted Lenovo for warranty?

 

Have you opened the device to take a look?  Or are you guessing bad solder?
