Yoga 260 Sleeps Randomly when Folding

Frequently, my Yoga 260 will go to Sleep when I unfold it from the tablet layout, reverting to the noraml laptop layout. It happens most often when I am in the tablet layout for an extended period of time (more than 10 minutes). I thought I might be accidentally hitting the physical power button, so I disabled it, but this has not solved the issue. Any ideas?

Can you please post the full model number of your computer? Maybe it is something long like "20DM008UUS", check out some instructions to find your model number here.


Before saying it is hardware issue, would you like to try to update some othe drivers of the Thinkpad?


Here are my general tips to update the drivers.  Give it a try and see if something improves, otherwise let's keep trying to pintpoint the issue.


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 (use the full model number of your Thinkpad).


Give it a try update some of the drivers and post if you experience the same issue.
