Thinkpad Yoga 460 Keyboard stops working

2017-02-06, 10:48 AM

I have a problem with my Thinkpad Yoga 460 which started to occur about 2 weeks ago.


Sometimes after bootup the keyboard does not work when I have to supply my passphrase for the hard disk encryption. The solution I have in this situation is to turn the battery of in the UEFI setup. Then pressing the power button for 10 seconds and then enabling the battery again with the power cable. This works reliable to fix the issue, but it is very annoying and when I am at the university there is no socket to enable the battery again.


Is something broken or is there a workaround for this issue?
