When I received my new T480 a couple of months ago, I set long BIOS supervisor password.
Now it does not work. I tried multiple times to enter it and I still cannot unlock the BIOS. My
password is 35 characters in length. Is it possible that it's truncated somehow?

No. Not truncated. No special characters. Numbers, letters and spaces are OK. Caps and lower case are the same. (ABc = abC)

It doesn't work. I assumed a truncated password so re-entered it in subsets, from length 1 to 35.
The password is composed entirely of alpha-numeric characters.
Can anyone confirm that setting the password indeed ignores non- alpha-numeric plus space characters? I'm guesing the '*' will not appear for those characters. This how it behaves when prompted to enter the password.
