I unfortunately have my pen button broken. It is uncomfortable, but I don't want to buy an other pen.
So my problem was that the pen switch hold the pen in the notebook.
One simple solution was that I get it (the switch) out.
But I wonder why this switch is there.
Is it used for power management, in order to stop power supply for the inductive system when the pen is in ?
ps : Please excuse me for my english, I am not a well english speaker.

Excuse me, I realize that I was not clear.
When I spoke about 'pen switch', I would say pen switch assembly (FRU 42W2556 or 93P4522).
I debunked that part and so I would want to know if it is important.
In fact, I debunked it because since my pen button (here it is the right click button on the pen) is broken, I have a hole on my pen and when I insert the pen in the tablet, the small strip of the switch (42W2556) enter in the hole, hook on the pen and hold it into the tablet.
