I have a T410 Windows 7 that just recently started refusing to go into sleep mode even though it appeared to.
I applied the fix suggested on this forum: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-74338
When I tried to follow the instructions, I kept getting an error message:
"FWUpdLcl.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"
I tried different things and finally double clicked on MEUPDATE windows command script file in the DRIVERS\WIN\ME folder and that's the first time it APPEARED to have worked, but alas...
I still have the same problem and when I checked the version installed it comes up somewhat differently than in the above document (the FW file indicated is correct, but some of the other lines are not). And here's where my pedestrian understanding of what to do ends. Please help!

Now I cannot suspend, hibernate or shut down! Win seems to shut down - all goes black except for the battery light on lid (even when disconnected for ac) and the fan. Overheats in this state fairly quickly.
I've updated everything I could think of, scanned for malware and viruses, checked all the hardware with the pc doc (however reliable that is) and there is no indication that anything is wrong.
This machine is pretty much useless if I cannot shut it down (or better get it to sleep) and transport it.
It seems a lot of people have had this problem and Lenovo has not provided a real fix. sigh.

Disabled Intel AMT in the BIOS extension MEBx and the machine is like new!
Disabling it in BIOS itself will not work, you have to enter MEBx by tapping ctrl+p on post screen or as soon as it starts up basically.
No new motherboard required!
