What is G3 mode? Thinkpad T580

When instaling the Thunderbolt Firmware Update Tool, I was prompted to put my laptop into G3 mode. What is G3 mode?

Hi ydavis770,

 

Gosh that's totally cryptic, isn't it?

 

That's the completely off power state:

The easiest way to get there is hold Shift while clicking on Shutdown.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
