Lenovo T470s went to sleep mode and can't get out. Only power button light blinking

2018-11-11, 14:55 PM

Lenovo T470 was shutting down when all of a sudden all light and the screen went off. But the power button light kept on blinking. It has refused totally go off even after a series of hard pressing to force the shutdown.

 

Someone kindly help on the issue.

If it were me I'd try the "paper clip" reset.

You will have to check your owner's manual for the position of the hole,

but the procedure will be similar to this, which is on the X1 carbon:

Currently I do not work for, nor do I speak for either Lenovo or IBM.
