Re: Yoga x1 3rd gen keyboard backlight flickering

The power management situation is just really bad; I had my Yoga in 80% charge, left it 5 hours in sleep, it came back at 20% battery. Not to speak of throttling and fan issues... The issues are so bad that my org has frowned upon the purchase of any more Thinkpads for the moment Smiley Sad

Got to agree the power issues in our org mean most people dont get more than 2hrs of battery life and struggle to make it through most meetings. Plus the machines struggle to enter sleep mode and wake themselves up.

Re: Yoga x1 3rd gen keyboard backlight flickering

Are those all X1Y3G and updates applied? I don't think anyone here regardless of issue(s) were getting 2x that little at a charge. Does your workflow req hours of gpu/cpu-heavy resources? I'm confident at apex of my issues I could still get a few hrs even gaming, so that doesn't sound right at all. In fact, I can't recall ever having any laptop that gave 2hrs max per charge, under any load. (though I can imagine VERY marginal scenarios where one could perhaps acheive it..maybe..). You should get those checked out i'd think!

We do have a number of enterprise level apps running which are constantly scanning and checking for Data Loss, Virus etc. 

 

We plan to build a machine which is a "vanilla" build and check the lifespan.

ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 3 - keyboard backlight flashing!

OK... after my pen not charging problem, just discovered this last night: the backlight is flashing when under a not-very-bright environment.

 

Are others experiencing this? Or coupled with the issue of the non-charging pen cavity, should I just request a brand new machine?

Hi the keyboard backlight flashing problem was fixed in the last BIOS update.  OR are you saying you updated and still have problems?

Re: ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 3 - keyboard backlight flashing!

Thanks! Would've thought that this machine, having been mid to late May, would have had the latest BIOS there.
