Yoga 13: cannot be shut down

2012-12-20, 20:23 PM

After shutdown, the screen goes black but the power button is lit unless I hold it down to power off. Tried the "turn off fast boot" suggestion, which did not work. I think I tried to shut down in safe mode once and it did not work either. Has anyone else seen the problem and fixed it successfully? Thanks.

How are you shutting down? A tap rather than long push on power button just puts it to sleep... lighted as it should be. d

Settings->power->shutdown (or restart). The machine will appear to shut down but the power button is lit. I'll have long-press the power button to turn the light off.

The light stays on if the Yoga is shutdown but plugged in.  If you unplug the AC adapter after shutdown you'll notice that the light goes out.  So it seems to be like the charging light of other laptops.

In my case, both the power indicator and the button are lit. I think I know the reaons. Perhaps someone can try to replicate it in your Yoga 13. The shutdown is incomplete when the machine is connected either to my USB mouse or the HDMI external monitor. When I uplug both, it powers off correctly.

Now mine restarts after being shutdown. Windows finally gave a message acknowledging this, and said it would be looked into.

I just started having this problem too -- My Yoga 13 won't shutdown or restart, instead the screen goes black but the light on the power button and the charge light both stay on.  It began when I connected a new Logitech bluetooth keyboard tonight, so I figured out that the problem had to do with the bluetooth connection.  If I turn off the bluetooth keyboard before trying to restart, then the problem goes away.  I can even turn off the bluetooth keyboard after trying to restart (and watching the screen go black but the power light stay on) and then the Yoga will proceed to correctly restart.

Reviving the topic.

 

For me if I try to shutdown, the Yoga immediately restarts and goes into the recovery button menu.

 

Quite annoying, especially since this also happens when in sleep mode and running out of battery. Then it shuts down automatically, reboots into this menu and stays there until the battery is bone dry. All the while getting hot if for example inside a sleeve.

 

So if anyone saw some updates during the last 3 months, let me know.

This problem is because of win8. Many win8 users (taht have diffirent laptops then yoga) faced with same problem.. i try many ways. and i solved the problem by adding a reg kod to mause right click menu. i added the needed files to this link:
