ideaPad 720s and USB-C dock

Hello all,


New to the forum. Just got my new IdeaPad and USB-C dock. Only issue I'm having is getting the power button on the dock to power up the closed laptop. Any ideas?

Re: ideaPad 720s and USB-C dock

I’ve tried both the usb-c dock and the thunderbolt 3 dock with my ideapad 720s. Neither dock responds to a power button press. 


The thinderbolt dock power button remained Amber (indicating dock powered and waiting for connection) even when connected but it was fully functional. 


The usb-c dock button led responds better, turning white when connected. 


Both docks will control power on my  T570 with the dock button. 


I have to lift the lid to power up the 720s.
