I have been pretty happy so far with my THinkpad Yoga 14 /i5/ 1 TB SSD.
I put the laptop in sleep mode and later when tried to turn on, there was no response. I tried evrything suggested in this forum
1. Basic reset, hold power button for 10, 20, 60 sec
2. Opened the back cover, disconnected the battery, pressed power button 10 times and then held down 30 sec. Plugged in battery and power, no luck
3. Pressed the emergency reset hole switch on the back cover
4. tried multiple power cords (I have 3 Thinkpads)
When i plug in power or press power button , no fan, no red LED on Front cover.
Can someone please please help me out? This is my main computer and I am in a major jam without this. Thanks in advance.
Lenovo Support, sr member, please help me out

Here is an update to the issue. I came across some posts on Best buy Geeksquad and also on this forum (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Re-Thinkpad-S3-Yoga-14-Random-shut-offs... ) which says that the SW2 switch may not be getting activated. I tried to locate SW2 switch on my laptop but it seems to be missing. PLs see attached picture. I have marked location of teh switch. In the other forum, i can see a tiny switch in that place.
I am not sure if Lenovo remoevd that switch in later models or if the switch is missing on my laptop causing it to stop powering on.
