Yoga Slim 7 Pro [14ACH5]: Power button non-functional when lid closed

2021-06-30, 3:39 AM

When the lid of the laptop is closed, the power button does not function to turn the laptop on, even when connected to an external dock/display. Pressing the button does not appear to do anything at all when the lid is closed.

 

The power button on the connected ThinkPad USB-C Dock Gen 2 (https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/au/p/40AS0090AU) also does not function to power on / wake the laptop with the lid closed.

 

The only way to wake/boot the device seems to be to open the lid, which makes the power button on the side of the device kinda pointless...

 

The laptop and dock are running the latest BIOS / firmware updates.

 

Is there any way to power up the laptop with the lid closed?

Hello @ Sam @ Shawfire!

 

Thanks for posting here at the Community Forums!

 

You may access or go to Settings > Power and Sleep > Additional Power Settings and click on "Choose What the Power Buttons Do" to define the function of your Yoga Slim 7 Pro laptop's Power button.

 

From there, you'll have the option to have the Power button to either Do Nothing, Sleep, Hibernate, Shut Down or Turn Off Display.

 

You may also check this previous post for additional reference.

 

Thanks,

Adriel_Lenovo

Hi Adriel_Lenovo,


That... doesn't answer my question at all. I'm aware of how the OS-level power button handling works, my question is related to the power button on the side of the laptop not working to either power the device on from a full powered off state or wake it from a sleeping state, while the lid is closed.

 

The 'additional reference' post you linked refers to the same issue, and there is no resolution there either (using a USB device such as a keyboard or mouse will only work to wake the device from sleep, not to power it on from a powered down state).

 

Unfortunately, even if the power button *did* work while the lid was closed, due to this issue I still need to open the laptop and press the ESC key on the laptop keyboard to continue booting after a shutdown/reboot anyway.

Thanks for the responding @ Sam @ Shawfire !

 

Please try disabling the Flip to Boot feature in the Configuration tab in BIOS.

 

Once done, test it again.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Thanks,

I have this same problem, tried your suggestion about disabling the Flip to Boot feature, but that doesn't help.

 

Once the lid is cloed, the computer can't be woken with either the power button on the laptop or the power button in the USB-C docking station.

 

Any other suggestions?

I have the same problem, same laptop. Changing that setting in BIOS did not work for me either.

*bump*

 

I think using an external dock is not too odd of a scenario? My old X1 Carbon Gen7 handled it just fine.

I have the same issue. Cannot find a solution. Very annoying unfortunately.

 

Hope somebody will come up with a solution.
