When pushing power button nothing happens. When plugging in power cord, the following happens: (i) light by power cord shines constant red, (ii) light on the "i" in Think on the cover flashes red 3 times, and (iii) light on power button flashes green 3 times.

The first thing I would look for is a broken power button

I don't recall the flashing 3 times behavior ever before. I think this is a warning of something wrong as opposed to the button being broken.
Nope, it's normal. Just re-confirmed on 3 different current-model ThinkPads.

Just had this same issue... I was using my X1 Carbon and it shutdown and now I cannot start the system. I've tried the emergency reset button beneath the system and it does not work. I can press the power button and the backlit keyboard flashes for a moment and then the CPU fan goes full blast and nothing is shown on the screen. My system won't POST or boot at all.
