Blinking Power button on T410

Hi,

 

I have a T410 and just noticed today that the power button is blinking green, whenthe machine is switched on.

If i reboot it goes away for a while but then starts blinking again.

 

What does this mean?

Re: Blinking Power button on T410

hey nuri,

does this happen with ..

1. power adapter + battery pack ?
2. power adapter without battery pack ?
3. battery pack without power adapter ?


If possible, we would like to fully charge your battery, use it like normal until it discharges fully and then fully charge it. Once it is fully charge, see if it happens again and do visit http://support.lenovo.com and ensure that your system is up to date.

Re: Blinking Power button on T410

Hi,

 

It happens when I have the battery in the machine + it's plugged in.

 

It only happens when I do some intensive stuff on the machine, but not all the time.

And even then after a reboot it goes away.

 

I have the battery set on  "auto optimize lifespan".

 

Is it good if I do a battery reset from the power manager?

Hi nuri,

 

just a suggestion.

 

The power button blinks because your system went into standby. (You mentioned that the battery is set to optimize lifespan).

 

To wake it up, try to press the blue FN key on your keyboard. bottom left position.

 

hope this helps.

 

Andreas

Re: Blinking Power button on T410

Is it a regular blink or an irregular blink?

Re: Blinking Power button on T410

What constitutes as an "irregular" blink?

It's blinking quiet fast.

 

I could make a video. Smiley Very Happy
