I have a 2 year old Lenovo T460s. Last night I let my computer go to screensaver and came back this morning and the computer power light was green and screen is black (but lit). I have tried restarting (Shift F8 Power button). I have tried pushed the rest pin hole and still no luck. I do not have an external battery either.
Any tips to help get my computer to work? I have reading the other forums, but the tip requrie me begin able to access my computer or the control panel.

I try things in the following order.
1 Press and hold the power button for 10 full seconds (complete shut off)
2 If that doesn't work, I try the reset hole.
3) If that doesn't work, I remove the battery, pull off the bottom cover. Disconnect the internal battery and then disconnect the coin-cell (CMOS) battery. press the power button 3 times, holding it for 5 seconds on the last push. DON'T DISCONNECT THE CMOS BATTERY IF THERE IS A BIOS PASSWORD SET AND YOU DO NOT KNIW IT.
