T480 Frequently Not Shutting Down

2019-01-23, 21:06 PM

I've got a 2 month old T480 that intermittently, but frequently, refuses to shut down. It just spins at the Windows 10 shut down screen. After updating all available Windows and Lenovo updates it still occurs. Recently the battery occasionally stops charging. Removing and replacing the battery seems to resolve until the next time. This has only happened twice in the last week or so but I'm not sure if this is a related symptom or something else entirely. 


I've got an X1 Yoga that has also had similar issues shutting down but very rarely. So I'm not sure if this is a Lenovo/Windows 10 thing or if something else is wrong.


Any ideas or things to check?
