"does the fan speed go higher?"
Not in my case too. I already had some video card issue, and the temperature (and fan) become very high. But here, the pc was just totally frozen, without any fan noise. I didn't find the time to dig this today, but I would be curious to know which BIOS setting is causing tis.

I had the same problem with a clean install of Win10 on my W510. In my case it's because Windows Update appears to be installing an old version of the Conexant Audio Software from 2010. If I install the 2012 version of the drivers (from https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/6nax03ww.exe) before letting Windows Update connect, then everything seems to work fine.

I have the same problem. Installed Windows 10 this evening on my Lenovo Thinkpad X201. Installation appeared to be successful. It boots up okay, but within a couple of minutes, the cursor freezes and the keyboard will not operate, and I cannot even use CTRL-ALT-DEL. Only solution is to do a hard shutdown by holding the power button down for 10 seconds. It will reboot, but the problem repeats itself. This has occurred 3 times in a row. I do not know how even to run a diagnostic or who to call or contact. Help !!

Same problem here on an X200 - seems to have been solved by doing a "Default Settings" in the BIOS so thanks for that tip.
Note: On my system, the freeze was total (no Alt-Ctrl-Delete etc.) but the WiFi light would flash constantly so it MIGHT be a network driver issue (I did an in-place upgrade with all the existing/up-to-date Lenovo Drivers in-place!)

Have you tried temporariiy uninstalling (not just disabling) the anti-malware software on the ThinkPad from Safe Mode (running the vendor's manual removal tools, if applicable) and then restarting? Be sure to reinstall the anti-malware software right away when you are finished testing.

Fixed it on my Thinkpad X201 - after boot up and very quickly then, I started CMD window and Run - I ran SFC /scannow and that seems to have fixed the mouse & keyboard freeze.

Spoke too - soon, after a reboot/sleep/wake the freeze is back on the X200
Seems like there's a fairly serious issue relating to hardware/drivers for Lenovo products over a fairly wide range?
The option to recover to Windows 7 from 10 is fairly limited (expires after a month) so I'm going to recover and forget about 10 for a while I think - marking it as "not ready for proper use" which is no great surprise.
The general rule of not touching a new Windows OS until at least 'SP1' still applies then??
