Beeps when powering up with lid closed.

2019-08-18, 1:36 AM

I have an X1 Extreme which seems unable to power up with the lid closed.

I use it with a dock and external monitors so don't need the laptop screen to be visible when using it docked.

When pressing the power button on the dock and with the laptop lid closed all i get is lots of beeps and the laptop doesn't boot.

But if the lid is open and i press the power button on the dock the laptop powers up OK.

I couldn't see any option in the BIOS setup to change this behaviour.


Hopefully somebody has a solution to this minor yet annoying issue.
