T470s will not power on after shutting down with lid closed

2020-01-02, 19:29 PM

I have a T470s laptop that will not power on after it has been shut down with the lid closed. I use two external monitors and keep the laptop lid closed while working. When I shut down, the laptop lid remains closed. The next day, the laptop will not power on and no lights are on. I have to unplug everything and use the Emergency Reset hole to get the laptop to power up. Holding the power button down for any amount of time doesn't work. There are other coworkers that are experiencing this issue with T470s laptops and T480s laptops.

 

Any suggestions?

I have exactly the same issue with my t460s since an update. I do not know how to fixed but it seems to a problem with Intel Management Engine 11.8 Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit).

When I open the BIOS, the ME firmware is blank. Any one knows of to fix it?
