I had the exact same issues with my T410. I just got used to it, and if you tell me that is the problem, I can live with it at this point. I think it is actually a windows issue.
It isn't purely a windows issue. The W510 works great. The W520 works when set to discrete. No issues with the T420 and T420s.
So it is a combination of hardware and software, as usual.

At least I can give them credit for good customer service. I just called to return my x1c, and they are refunding me in full with no restock fee. I ordered a retina macbook pro instead. I have never used a mac, but I only hear good things about it, so I'll give it a try.
I have a 15" Retina MacBook Pro. If you have questions, post over at http://forum.notebookreview.com/apple-mac-os-x/ and I'll see them. There are quite a few other forums for Apple users. See http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1 for another one though I don't read it much.
Keep in mind the Apple zealots don't care for the n00b Windows questions so take their attitude with a grain of salt.
I run Windows 8 on my Mac via a VMWare Fusion virtual machine. Apple still has not provided Windows 8 bootcamp support. Windows 7 is no problem via bootcamp but I still prefer a sandboxed VM.

I'm sure I will have some questions. 2 things that drive me nuts that I haven't figured out with a mac are how do you right click, and how do you maximize a window. I like all my windows maximized.
One other thing, now that I am getting ready to return my x1, I cannot get into rescue and recovery to restore it. I can't even get into the bios. I keep click the thinkvantage button when start up, but no luck.
