Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 - Wakes up when lid is closed when power button is pressed

2013-02-12, 22:04 PM

Hello everyone

 

Got my Yoga 13 back in mid December, and so far I have been really happy with it.

However, just recently I noticed a critical problem; When the lid is closed, and the power button is pressed, the laptop wakes itself up. Actually once mine woke up when I might have accidentally pressed the power button when placing it inside the sleeve bag. It stayed in my bag for a good 2 hours and heated the hell out of everything (85 Celsius!!), even some color off of the sleeve burned into the side of the yoga (not too noticeable, didn't really care about it). It survived however, no internal damages or performance reduction as I have thoroughly tested everything.

 

So is this suppose to happen? My brother has a Sony VAIO which is close to 3 years old and has Windows 7 on it, and it also has the power button on the outside inside the round hinges. When I press the power button while lid is closed, it doesn't wake up. How come the Yoga wakes up when the power button is pressed during lid closed? Or do I just have a bad unit?

 

Thank you.

Bump!

Can anyone atleast try this on their yoga? Also, back at the end of December I also noticed another thing; The charging light (the light which comes on when you plugin the charger) is on all the time regardless of whether the charger is plugged in or not.

 

Someone please help me out.

Hi,

 

This has never been a problem for my Yoga. I use the sleeve everyday and have never had it accidently press the power button while closed. In addition, my yoga does not heat up hot enough to burn my sleeve.

 

I also tried to close the lid and use it to wake the power button after reading this post, but nothing happened. I hope this helps.

Hi

 

Thank you for the answer. So, just to make sure, u did the following:

- Close the lid and let the laptop go to sleep.

- While the lid was closed, you pressed the power button.

And nothing happened? As in the laptop remained asleep?

I'm not sure if this is what happened to me, but it could be.  I put my Yoga in a sleeve and put it in my bag.  Took it out later to find it very hot and the battery nearly dead, so it had obviously woken up at some point.

Hi hasan10,

thanks for posting and welcome to the community, I must admit that is an interesting find though. I will need to check with the teams and get back to you in this regards.

Do give me a bit of time to get back to you on this.

Regards

My Yoga once again woke up while transporting it to work in my bag.  Without any ventilation it got quite hot.  I'm worried that if this continues there could be some damage done.  Please look into fixing this!

I have just recently gotten this problem too. Plus it never goes to sleep on power schedule. Just when closing the lid or pressing the button. So that means that it stays awake forever if accidentally woken in bag until the battery rules kick in.

Still waiting for an update on this...Haven't had the problem as I am now extra cautious.

 

As person above me mentioned, even if it turns itself on it doesn't go back to sleep as per battery schedule which is strange (i.e. something keeps it awake). This is my first Lenovo laptop, and I have been using this laptop rigorously for pretty much everything from VMs, rendering, photo/video editing, presentations etc. and have nothing but praises and positive things to say about this. But I absolutely cannot recommend this to anyone at my work place, not even my boss. If this problem exists, they will end up having their machine destroyed without it being really their fault. Lenovo please fix this, and you will have a loyal for life customer.
