zoltanthegypsy, Thanks so much for your reply!
I am student at a university. I am going from one class to another for 7 hours each day.
If I put my computer to a complete shut down or hibernate every 50 minutes... I am pretty sure it will cause a damage in the long term.
Am I right?
Since the 900 has an SSD and not a spinning hard drive I can't imagine that shutdown/startup wear is a significant issue.
Also as JDGillis says, sleep is a low-power state, not no power. I'd vote for shutting down before tucking it in. With Win 10 shutdown and hibernate are basically the same thing.

If the system does indeed have and SSD, then there is no worry about drive wear and tear, so powering off, or going straight to hibernation would be my choice too, with hibernation having the advantage of saving your systems current state between classes, although I am still paritial to saving open documents.

Again, thank you very much y'all.
1. I mentioned the bios update for the other model of the yoga 900 to the Lenovo techincal support- did not help.
2. The case was escalated- but again no help from that direction either.
Bottolm line: I can go ahead and ship the computer to them, I just feel, honestly- that they will not be able to fix it. Nobody actually talkes to you and says " we know what's up, we can fix it"- They basically are shooting in the dark... and people already received a replacment that had the same issue(!)
Although most of us here have heard about this issue so many times, Lenovo seems not to recgonize this techincl problem at all.
For now, I certianly hibernate the machine, but I really want this issue to be done.
I hope somebody who works in Lenovo can communincate with me and ensure I get what I need to get- a workable machine.
