The power button cannot turn off the computer (Ideapad 320-15ABR)

Q: The power button cannot turn off the computer (Ideapad 320-15ABR)

This is a new laptop. Phisic power button problem. I've set it to turn off the computer in Power options in Windows 10, but pressing it does nothing! I have to hold it for few seconds to force system to turn off but it won't turn off normally on a normal short press. At least, it does turn on the computer though. I've set both battery and plugged in action for power button to "shut down", it is not "do nothing". All driver updated. Everything is up to date. What is the problem?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi, I have had my Ideapad for about a month now and it doesnt seem to turn on. The white charging LED is on when connected to A/C and I can hear the fan come on, the screen flickers when i press the power button, but then after a minute or so everything powers down before I even make it to the lenovo or windows login screens. No sign of bios. I have read somewhere that i could try to take out the battery and start up the laptop without it, to try and clear static charge, but i'm not keen to take it all apart before I get some advice! James

I recently upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10. When I power down the system from the menu, my computer does not completely turn off. The procedure I use is described below:

Click Windows_Start_button > Power > Shutdown

The system closes applications and appears to initiate a shutdown procedure. Everything appears to be shut off, but my mouse is still lit up. I do notice that the fan stops and everything else appears to be completely shut down. When I was running Windows 7 before my upgrade, my system completely powered down.

I have a dual boot system with Linux, and when I power down from Linux, the shutdown is complete, so I don't think I accidentally did anything to the hardware or BIOS.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm pretty sure there is some tweak in Windows 10 that would fix this, but I haven't found it yet. Thanks for any suggestions you might be able to offer.

A:Power down button does not completely turn computer power off

I found the solution on another thread. If you have this problem try the following:
1. Log in as an administrator.
2. Right click the Menu button.
3. Left click -> Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what the power button does > Change settings that are currently unavailable
4. Uncheck the box next to Turn on fast startup (recommended)
5. Make sure Hibernate is unchecked.
6. Left click Save changes.
The next time you shut down the computer, it will be completely powered off. At least this worked on my machine.

Hello,

Is there a way to have a computer turn on immediately once power is reaching the computer without having to press the chassis power button (ie. I turn on a power strip and the computer immediately begins booting)?

Thanks,

Yes.
The setting is usually in the BIOS.

Can someone please help me. Take in mind my computer skills are just average. This isn't a problem yet, but would like to get a fix before if possible. Here it is. This laptop is only 5 to 6 months old. Windows 8. My power button that turn,s the computer on, sticks some. I have no money to take it to a shop, I was wondering if there,s a trick to fix it? Or another way to turn it on? Thanks, Chuck

A:to turn computer on ( power button )

Is your computer new and still in warranty? if the power button sticks there may be a known issue with the casing. Have you tried to reach out to the manufacture to see if there is a known issue?

My son's computer wouldn't shut down, it would close down the OS but the computer lights and HD would still be running. I did a scan, Ccleaner with its registry fix, and degfrag.. that made it work maybe twice. Now it is doing it again.
It refuses to turn off even with the power button (it shuts off then starts again, on its own - I am NOT pressing the "restart"). I have to unplug it from the wall to make it stop re-starting itself.
Any ideas?

Thanks,

This is my sister's cpu i'm talking about so i have no idea if there was an error message before the following happened:

She was booting the computer and it just shut off. There is no response from the power button. Yes all the cords are plugged in inside and outside the box. The computer is kinda old, has had major problems with XP, so is back to 98. PII 266, 312 MB ram, GeForce 2 video card, 2 WD hdds. On a possibly related note, the problem with XP was that the registry was corrupted every shutdown. Could this be an issue with the mobo? I know the ram is good, and the power supply seems okay.

Another mobo-ish issue: The comp will only go past bios loading area with 2 devices on IDE 0. It hangs as if there is no hdds in it if there is only one. Yes i checked the jumpers and such. Either hdd on IDE 0 fails boot if there's one, but passes whether it's master or slave if both are in.

Any help would be appreciated.

:knock: Today I came home from work and pressed the power button on the computer to which nothing happened. Not a slight power up and turn off, no lights fans, no sign of life. I used it this morning with no problems or indications of anything being wrong and turned it off when I was done, which it shut down properly. It never just turns off in the middle of gaming or anything. What could be the problem with it? Would that be the power supply? I have it plugged into a good surge protector and there was no lightning of weather effects today while I was gone. I turn it off every night before sleeping and when ever i'm done with it. Anyways, thats some usage of it. Its usually on for 6 hours a day or so and its rufly 3 weeks old. (just built). Thanks for any help you guys can give!!

Jason - from what you describe (and assuming your power outlet is OK), your computer's power supply may have blown. Thankfully, it is an inexpensive part to replace!

This morning I came to my computer and it had a BSOD from my wireless adapter driver. This has happened a few times before. But when I turned it off and tried to turn it back on, it wont start! As soon as I press the power button, the lights flash and the fans get one jolt of power causing them to spin and die out immediately and then everything stops in under a seccond. What could be causing this? I did add a new new hard drive to my computer yesterday, but it has restarted fine a few times since then, and unplugging it didn't fix the problem. Other than that, I can't think of anything that is different that would be causing this. Any ideas?

I then shut of the the extension that houses 10 plugs. When I turned on the extension I turned on the computer the power button didn't give off a blue light or orange light. The VGA cable, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet cable are all plugged in. I later removed all the connects to the computer gave it a minute and plugged it all back in. There is a solid green light on the back under the power cable. The fans turn on there is noise coming from inside the computer a soft humming and light fan from the back of the computer.

Hi. I have bought an IdeaPad 520 notebook. On my previous laptop (Lenovo G580), I was used to pressing the power button to shut it down. But it seems the power button on my IP 520 can only be used to power on the laptop and force shut down by holding it for a few seconds. Is this a normal behaviour and it's meant to be like that or is there a setting somewhere which I can check out to enable the power button to shut down the laptop by pressing it once? Thank you.

Specs: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11.6" HD/Core i7-3689Y/4 GB/128 GB All is fine when the machine is on or in sleep mode. The problems start when it shuts down or goes to some deeper hibernation (whatever happens when the machine has been in sleep mode long enough). Then, the machine won't start up anymore, even if the power is connected. After some googling, we decided to try to disconnect the battery. This didn't help (and there was no BIOS update for this particular model) but while disassembling the machine we found out that when the front panel (power button + power light) motherboard connection was detached, the machine powered up. All was again fine until the machine shut down. So the machine can be jump-started by detaching the cable but either the front panel circuit or connection seems to be broken. Any ideas what to do? The following picture illustrates the issue: ?

Hi, I came home today and when I pressed the power button to turn on my latop, nothing happened. I pressed it multiple times, with and without some force, as well as held the button down. It still didn't turn on. I tried it with the battery in and without the battery but plugged into the charger and outlet, but nothing happened. I'm not sure if it's that the battery drained and the charger died and that my laptop has no power. Right now my laptop is plugged into the outlet with the battery in and the light next to the power insert on the laptop is unlit. Something of note that happened yesterday was that my laptop randomly shutdown and restarted a few times actually. I wasn't sure what happened, but it was fine afterwards and it said the laptop was charged. I'm thinking these two issues are related, but I don't know what happened.

Hey guys! Newcomer here!

Need serious help with my 4 months old PC which I built myself.

It has been working fine, until recently. Basically, the PC would not turn on after clicking the Power button on the Case. Initially, it required 4-5 clicks, before it turned on. After couple of days, more clicks. Then now, it just does not turn on with Button clicks.

In order to Boot it, I have to Turn Off and On the PSU switch, couple of times, and it triggers something and PC comes on. When it is on, it is all stable, no issues at all. I can use it 12-15 hours, and not a single crash or power surge.

I read on many other forums regarding the issue and tried couple of solutions:

1. Tried switching the connections on the motherboard, between Power and Reset button, to see if the SWITCH is the problem. No result, so switch of the case is fine.

2. Tried removing the motherboard battery and back in, didn't help.

3. Unplugged custom lighting LED molex connector, still no result.
PC Components are:

i7 6700 (non-K) 3.4Ghz
64GB 2400mhz HyperX Fury Black
MSI z170A Gaming M5 motherboard
MSI GTX970 4Gb
Samsung Evo 500Gb SSD
Seagate 4TB green
NZXT H440 Red and Black case
EVGA Supernova 850G (850 watt Gold) PSU.
I built the PC June, 2016 - in United Kingdom. Now I moved to Turkey. And problem started here, however I haven't used the PC enough in UK anyways, so I'm not sure if Wall Socket power voltage is the issue, UK being 240v and turkey has 220v, according to googl... Read more

You would have to search to see if their is a adaptor available. I know I have bought a optical slot adaptor for a drive. But that was for a ThinkPad which I think has more options then the consumer line IdealPads. Probably your best bet is a big flash drive, or a external drive. But search third parties because you could possible buy the adaptor and crudely install a drive in the optical. So many optical drives are thin drives these days, so space may be a issues.

   I love Lenovo. Let me get this out of the way to start. I have had a Toshiba (holy crap, a terrible laptop build quality), Dell (great CS but the laptop needed a new piece of hardware about every three months. Went through at least 5 MoBos over the course of four years), then finally a Lenovo. The Lenovo was a CHAMP. I brought it everywhere and tortured it within an inch of its life and it stood the test. It stood up to ART SCHOOL, if that is not an indication of quality, I don't know what is. Hence why I bought another. And another. And now this one. I have been surprisingly gentle with this one which is why I am so aggravated by the CONSTANT grinding fan noise. This sucker is less than a year old and still in warranty. This may be fixed by a BiOS thing but considering the type of noise, I am thinking it is hardware. As the battery is sealed, I am hesitant to take this thing apart to check out the fan by hand. So, my question is: Is it possible to get a laptop bought in the USA serviced in Japan? If not, what is the part SKU for the fan so I can just install it myself? Also, a point in the direction of the BiOS/driver/whatever update that is supposed to fix this would be appreciated for the first step. And before you tell me, I know servicing my own laptop will void the warranty. I don't care. I am very good with computers and have been tearing apart and fixing laptops since I got my first one at 13. I would not date doing a fu... Read more

so, I just got a new laptop, cause the last HP i Had finally broke down. unfortunately it broke down before i could back up anything off the hard drive. So i found the old hard drive from my HP pavillion G7 17' notebook. the hard drive is a toshiba MQ01ABD075. The laptop originally was using windows 7 OS, but i later upgraded it to windows 10. I was wondering if i would be able to use this hard drive in my IdeaPad, without having to re-install windows 7 or 10 from a USB/ windows Disc? would it be easier to just purchase a hard drive adapter and just download everthing i need from the HD?

I received my IdeaPad 310-15ABR on December 1st and on December 2nd I called in a ticket and was left a little dissatisfied on the troubleshooting abilities of tech support.  I was experiencing a battery drain faster than I would expect. When unplugged I am getting maybe about 3 hours of use - this is with power saver settings activated and really only web browsing and such. No mega gaming or movies etc So when I called tech, they immedietaly told me to send back the laptop - but at my own expense which to me seems odd, why should I pay to send Lenovo my defective new machine? After getting off the phone I did my own research and found that "location" was on, so I turned it off and that bought me some time on the battery - not a lot... but enough for me to realize that I needed to test this machine out on my own for a week or two before sending it back.  So I am about to send it back, but I am wondering - how long are you getting on your battery for the same machine? I don't want to send it back if what I am getting is unfortunately the reality of what I should be getting.

Hi, Power Button Lockout is displayed.The monitor's Power Button Lockout function is enabled.Press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds to unlock the Power button function. If the above doesn't work then try a monitor reset.  Unplug the monitor?s power cord and hold down the monitor?s power button for 30-60 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and power it up.
