I'm experiencing some issues with my ThinkPad x230
For quite sometime laptop doesn't go into sleep mode when lid is closed like also after inactivity time.
In both situations computer behaves the same, power lamp is slowly flashing and wifi light is still on (on closed lid both battery and "moon" are on), while fans are constantly working without break.
It doesn't matter if it's on battery, without it, plugged or without plug.
Situation also is dificult when it comes to shutting down, pc doesn't turn off it hangs on state when power button flashes constantly.
Restart is also a lottery, sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't restart so it becomes difficult to perform updates that require restart.
Device manager doesn't show any missing drivers.
My laptop is Intel i5-3320M, 16gb RAM, Windows 10 64-bit.
I'm terribly sorry if it's some lame post but I tried couple solutions to solve this issue, but none helped... Or maybe I'm just not looking right.

Thank you for such long reply!
Regarding PM it's probably default Windows but I'm not sure (at this moment I'm quite convinced that I installed one from Lenovo site).
As for CMOS battery it was added around 3 years ago since laptop was missing it when I bought it (for unknown reason), anyways I'll check it.
I'll check everything and share the results.

Sorry for late reply, I couldn't earlier.
When it comes to cmos battery stuff, it looks fine, nothing suspicious there.
As for power manager, I installed Intel one, but that didn't work at all, no change in behavior.
I also installed ME firm (just out of curiosity), but that didn't work out as well.
When it comes to bios version, like I said, it's latest version, but here comes my question.
Is it possible that bios settings (power settings basically), are causing the issue???
