Lenovo T431 laptop charges only when switching on or waking from sleep.

2018-09-08, 20:13 PM



I have Lenovo T431s laptop, recently experiencing a very strange battery charging issue.


Recently my laptop stops charging but the yellow light on the power button blinks continuously when connected the adapter.


Switched off the laptop and when switching on it, battery starts charging.

Also on waking from sleep, battery charges.


Could say laptop only charges on waking but not charging when it is off or connects the adapter when it is running.

Why the system behaves in such way, is there any fix for this issue?


OS: ubunutu 17.10


Thanks and Regards,
