Yoga 710: Turn device ON with lid closed

Hey fellow Yoga users, Most of the time I use my Yoga 710 14 IKB connected to an external screen together with a mouse and a keyboard running it in a desktop like state, here I don't need the 2nd/original screen of the Yoga. Unfortunately, I've to open the Yoga's lid (which is BTW. kinda annoying with this device) to power the device ON -> It would be really great to do so without the necessity to open the lid when using it in my 'desktop mode'. Is there a way power it ON in its closed state? Thanks, Timur

Hello Timur_terur

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


I do not believe this is possible unless you make some modifications on the unit.

 

You may be able to do this if you dont power down the unit but instead put it to sleep.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Thank you very much! I think I can "live" with your workaround! :-) Hitting a key on my external keyboard gets it back on.
