Pretty much brand new T410 wouldn't power on

Hey guys,


Left my laptop asleep yesterday. Went to use it today and it was a brick. No LED lights turned on when I went to plug it into the wall, and the power would not come on. A little Googling and I found the "press the power button 11 times" trick. That worked!


My question is: what happened? Is this serious or just a fluke? How can I avoid it in the future?

There is probably a build up of statics within the power circuitry. You can't really avoid it, well at least no one seriously documented the cause and effect of all these.
