my computer likes messing with me...
The keyboard problem is gone, but now my wifi doesn't work...
A Lenovo tech support guy said he's going to send a technician some time next week for the keyboard problem, but do you have any idea what might fix the wifi problem?
I checked the F2 Setup menu, and it said the WAN adapater was enabled. Wifi switch is turned on, and Fn+F5 doesn't seem to do anything because I uninstalled the Energy Management program (source of all my problems...)

I am having this problem and it is driving me crazy!!! It is basically making my laptop when used without an external keyboard too painful to use. If I cant fix it, I will return it for a refund as a reliable laptop is essential in my work and the Lenovo Y560 clearly is NOT it.
I have owned about 6 laptops now (none Lenovo prior to this one). I have never experienced anything like it

I just tryed it then. Ive uninstalled the power management program and fortunately my wireless is still working. Ive tryed to get the problem to happen again and so far so good. It seems OK.

Cant I control the power management option through Windows Power options? My wireless is still working fine (I never used the Lenovo program that controls this) so clearly I dont need the Lenovo power management utility for my current wireless config.
My 'Fn' functions appear to still be working.
I cant see any problems the laptop is having as a result of not having the Lenovo powermangement utility installed.

The camera is working but I spoke too soon in regard to the computer being OK. It's just doing other stupid stuff now when I type certain keys making using the laptop keyboard impossible.
I will re-install the Lenovo power management software though am doubtful this will be the solution.
I actually think the laptop is a Lemon and Im going to to attempt to get my money back. I am running a small business where a reliable laptop is crucial. Clearly I should have gone with one of the brands I usually buy like Toshiba or HP. Never any problems remotely like this. I even had several Acers at one stage for a training program I was running that would run rings around this Lenovo.

Just to add that I tried re-installing Lenovo Power management and the problem was worse than ever. Completely unusable keyboard.
Fortunately I still have the Toshiba laptop I recently retired to buy this Lenovo piece of rubbish. Toashiba still going strong without a hiccup after over 3 years. I'm transferring all my files back to it. Lenovo a complete waste of space after only 3 months!!
