Same issue for Thinkpad L380 (non-Yoga).

Factory reset performed on Windows 10, all device drivers and firmware up to date using Device Manager and Lenovo Vantage.

The issue occured originally under BIOS v 1.14

After factory reset I was able to update to BIOS v 1.20 without issue and system was stable for the remainder of the day.

Shutdown over the weekend and issue appeared on 1st boot Monday morning.

 

Using pinhole reset on the base of the laptop will resolved the issue the 1st time.  Shutdown the system and the powered on again and the problem re-occured.  Pinhole reset did not work 1st attempt though and had to try powerbutton (+30seconds) and pinhole to get it to power on.

This might sound like a joke, but it worked for me. Drop your laptop from ~5cm onto a  firm surface, and it should solve the issue. I believe it's an underlying hardware issue.
