my name is Ifor and I bought a Lenovo X220 (4290-44G) exactly 2 years ago.
The following happened:
-I noticed an error while booting. The screen said: ME is in recovery state. After that I noticed my computer won't wake up from sleep after I closed the lid. So I installed a fresh windows 7 ultimate install. All the drivers have been downloaded from Windows Update or the Lenovo site.
The error still is not fixed, so I updated my BIOS with the newest .iso file from the Lenovo support site. The error still persists!
Also, my processor gets really warm and my screen sometimes flicker. I've had no problems or what-so-ever before.
All I found was this link and I updated my bios already: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19456189.aspx
I would be really grateful if someone could help me.

Same problem with my T420. The Intel(R) Active Management Technology - SOL (COM4) doesn't work either.
Fresh windows 7 pro installed, latest BIOS from Lenovo, flashed CMOS, installed drivers with Lenovo system update software...

I just got X220 (4291-9R3)
And the machine got the same issue after power on the machine
top left of the screen will shown "ME is in the recovery state ...) (right after Think pad screen)
then machine boot in to OS normally.
So far in OS (windows7 64bit) machine working with no issue.
I just update bios to latest version also ME firmware. But the "ME is in recovery state" still exist.
I try to find solution from internet but still not find the right answer why and how to solve this.
here below screen capture MEinfowin and device manager.
Any advice or recommended will be very appreciated.
