Yoga 900 -- blinking power light, machine wouldn't turn on

2017-01-03, 3:31 AM

Perhaps this has been discussed elsewhere in the forum, but the threads were written rather inscrutably and so I'll state my problem here and hope to receive some feedback.

I have a two-month old Yoga 900. Tonight it would not wake up after I put it to sleep. The power light on the side blinked, but no amount of holding it would wake the thing. Also, the machine was plugged in whilst I tried to jostle it from slumber.

I googled a solution which, thankfully, worked. Which was: unplug the thing, depress the power button for 10 secs., then plug in power cord and boot again. Aha, this magic trick worked.


Nonetheless I feel compelled to ask WHAT KIND OF CRUMMY PC HAVE I BOUGHT THAT GOES INTO HIBERATION LIKE THIS??? And how can I avoid it from happening again.


Never had an episode like this with any Dell, Samsung or Mac. Just this jolly two month old Lenovo which I thought was a decent machine until now.

Feedback appreciated.

Well from the sounds of it its a bit of a pain, you can try disabling the sleep mode but i would recomend contacting your local support line for a resolution of a possible repair if needed. Here is the phone list that you can use https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/supportphonelist_full

I've removed battery, SSD card and Bios card. after reinstalled, plugged in power cord and showed Lenovo in screen in 3 seconds and then back to blank screen and orange blinking led.

I've heard low sound like sirens came out from motherboard.

Is it battery problem or motherboard?


Need any advice...
