This is more of an intrigue than an issue but I'm still curious as to why this happens.
Issue: When placing a T480s on top of another T480s both machines will be forced into sleep mode.
How to reproduce: Line up a T480s on top of another T480s (or T480) and the device will go into sleep mode.
I've Stacked T480 units and this does not happen this seems to only affect the T480s line. (These test were preformed on the latest bios/driver revisions)
What I think maybe happening is that the T480s when stacked are triggering the lid closed sensor of the other unit. Since this is not the case for the T480 units we have I think it may be because of the thickness of the s models.
Is this something that will eventually be fixed via bios update? or is this just a flaw in the T480s design?
Thanks for in advanced for your response!

I've seen this happen in the past, it was due to how strong the magnets are that keep the lid shut.
I often forget, the magnet is used to do more than just trigger the Hall-effect sensor.
