I have just discovered I have the same problem. The power switch became mushy, and then the unit would not power up.
Opened the unit and found the power switch loose on the motherboard. From my inspection there appeared to be no solder on either pin to the switch. I will be calling for a repair ticket tomorrow. Ugghhhhh!!!! Less than one month old.
My Power Button has failed again. This was just repaired in late October at a Lenovo Authorized Repair Station. I certainly don't want to return it there again. The switch attachment to the circuit is poorly engineered and designed. I have been careful in my use of this tablet all along. Now I worry about the Micro USB port also. What I really want is a new Tablet. How and to whom do I escalate this issue ???
Frustrated in Ohio!!

Glad am not the only one, was debating whether i was the cause of the switch failure , i can confirm the bracket pins where not soldered and had to have it done, 1 week has passed all is still well.

My tablet button does not work at all. I plan to send it in for a replacement, but I worry that this will happen on the next as well. Lenovo, are you going to fix this issue.

Ahhhh, i am glad I am not alone, over the weeks i realised my power button was getting mushier and mushier, now today it just didnt press on at all, and I am all the way in Barbados so returning to Lenovo won't be cheap or fast and I need to travel soon with my tablet. Can anyone give me instructions as to how to open and soder back on the buttons. many thanks
