Lenovo Yoga S1 12 can't shut down or hibernate. "i" led always blinking

Hi, I'm using Lenovo Yoga S1 with win10. When I try to shudown or hybernate laptop, windows turns of, but "i" led starts to blink. After that I can't turn it on. Power button does not respond. I have to hold it for 5 second until "i" led stops blinking and then after normal button press everything boot up. Hope someone can help. Thank you.

Hi Neramusis, welcome to the forums.

 

Can you please post the full model number of your Thinkpad?

 

The only idea that I have right now is why do you try to update the drivers of you computer, specially the Lenovo Power Management Driver.

 

This are my tips about updating drivers on the Thinkpad:

 

1) Try first Windows Update and update all the drivers and Patches

2) Try Lenovo System Update to get any new/missing drivers.

3) Try to install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion from the Windows App Store, Lenovo Companion also has a "update driver search"

4) Sometimes all that software does not recognize some updated / missing driver. Check Lenovo's Support Site and search for your specific model drivers.

 

I know that this is "trial and error", but I think that updating the drivers may help with this issue.

I have exactly the same issue. After I got my mainboard replaced I am not able to shutdown or hibernate my yoga s1. Any solutions on this?

I downgraded my driver from the Intel(R) Management Engine Interface to 9.5 (Link) and haven't had a problem today. I keep you posted if anything changes.

I have been having this problem for months with my Yoga S1. All the fixes suggested online did not work. I spoke to Microsoft and they told me to run Windows Power Shell (free software preinstalled with Windows) and at the command line prompt type sfc /scannow and press enter. Power Shell reported that it 'found corrupted files and successfully repaired them'. I don't know exactly what these files were as it did not show the report, but immediately after this my Yoga began shutting down fully, also all hibernate/sleep functions work as expected both using the power button and from the time out settings in the Windows Power Options.

That command is sfc /scannow, with a space between sfc and /
