Yoga 710: Turn device ON with lid closed

Q: Yoga 710: Turn device ON with lid closed

Hey fellow Yoga users, Most of the time I use my Yoga 710 14 IKB connected to an external screen together with a mouse and a keyboard running it in a desktop like state, here I don't need the 2nd/original screen of the Yoga. Unfortunately, I've to open the Yoga's lid (which is BTW. kinda annoying with this device) to power the device ON -> It would be really great to do so without the necessity to open the lid when using it in my 'desktop mode'. Is there a way power it ON in its closed state? Thanks, Timur

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I almost always use my NB200-10G laptop with external monitor/mouse. And since the powerbutton is actually accessable with the lid closed, it should be posible to start up the computer without having to open the lid, turn it on, and then close the lid. Does anyone know how to do this?

A:How to turn on the NB200-10G with the lid closed?

If you turn the netbook off, I'm afraid there is no way to turn it on without pushing the start button. (opening the lid).

One far-fetched possibility is to install a sort of inflatable little ball over the start button, close the lid and then use an external manual air pump to inflate it for a short while when need to start the netbook.

But I have just imagined such a solution, never tried it.

However, it is sometimes possible to put the equipment in hibernation. In this case, if you choose "allow network wake up" (this is not literal, I do not remember the exact words) in the CMOS menu, turning on an ADSL connected to the LAN port (or something similar), should wake the equipment.

This cannot be used if you disconnect the AC power supply while hibernating, , because enabling the wake up by network feature leaves some electronic parts active and this discharges the battery in several hours.

I am interested in this possibility, I believe it can be experimented a little. I plan to put the netbook in a corner more or less hidden, as I also use external keyboard, mouse and screen. If you do make some experiments, please posts results here so others can use it.

Hi All, I'm new to the forum and am loving my Y2P so far. I have been following several threads about tweaking my new machine, and I love the sense of community that you guys have here. I decided to join so I could pose a question: Has anyone had a problem with their machine waking up with the lid closed (in sleep mode). Sometimes when I take my computer out of my bag, it is awake. Since the power button is so hard to press in the first place, I don't think an accidental press is waking it up. Could a device be waking it up? What do you guys think? -IB

I'm using a Yoga 2 Pro with an external monitor via HDMI. It works fine when the lid is open, whether the display is extended, cloned or second screen only. However, as soon as I close the lid, the system gets very slow and I experience redraw issues. I think it may be with the way the graphics card handles the monitor's resolutions. I do not have room on my desk to open the lid, so I need a solution so I can work with my external monitor and the lid closed. Thank you.

I've had this laptop for about 2 years now, great laptop, i'm running windows 10 now. I recently accidentally hit the laptop while it was closed though, and i think that might have screwed up the open/close detection. When I close the laptop, sometimes it does not go to sleep and heats up my backpack until it dies and i can't use it when i want to. I have to press the side power button to make sure it goes to sleep. When I open up the laptop after it was in sleep mode, I have to press a button for it to turn it back on... I'm wondering if there is a fix i can do, to the software or hardware of the laptop.

I assume your notebook goes into sleep mode when the lid is closed.
Right?

In such case you have to set the option ?Choose what closing the lid does? to nothing

This can be found in control panel -> Power Options -> in the left column

Hi, Sometimes when I close the lid off my Yoga 260 Windows 10 are not going to sleep. The behaviour is really weird because the red light on the lid is blinking like when it's in sleep mode, but I can hear the rotating fan. When I open the lid it's even weirder. Windows are not locked and I am not prompt for a password. The whole system is very laggy. The mouse is moving in jumps and there is not any response to keyboard or screen touch. After few seconds/minutes the system is suddenly OK like nothing happend. This is not happening all the time and I was not able to see any pattern when this happens. What should I do to get rid of this? Thx for help.

Hi!I have a bizzare issue with my Gen 1 X1 Yoga. The machine will not sleep when the lid is closed. I know this is not a software issue as holding a magnet above the sensor (in between the caps lock and shift key on the left keyboard bezel) sleeps the machine. Does anyone know where / what the magnet is thats meant to interact with this sensor? I assume it is meant to be positioned somewhere in the Screen bezel? if so does anyone know if this is something that could potentially be checked / serviced by a user or will i be bringing my machine to a repair centre.Cheers

Most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. Computer goes to sleep when lid is open, and wakes when lid is closed. I can open it about 20 degrees and work on it like nothing's wrong. I tried turning off the lid-sleep option in Windows, but no change, and it goes to sleep instantly even if it's in the BIOS or mid-boot. The machine is practically new with very little changed from the stock configuration, and it was fine yesterday. Anyone ever seen this? Also the power button and little reset hole seem to not do anything anymore either.

OK so I have a number of problems with the fifteen or so ThinkPad Yoga 12 devices we have purchased. Some of these problems are being addressed in other threads (the black screen on start up which requires you swipe the screen in Windows 10 release 2 being one of them), but I'll just start with one problem for now to keep things clear. On my desk I have a ThinkPad Yoga 12. I have a ThinkPad UltraDock Pro USB 3.0 docking station, the newest revision. Connected are an external mouse and keyboard, a LAN cable, and 2 external monitors. The Yoga 12 is connected via the USB 3 cable, and the lid is closed. Both screens are up, LAN and input devices working, everything seems good. Every so often, the mouse cursor will magically jump to the bottom-right of the left external monitor and a left-click event is registered causing the Windows calendar to pop up. Happens maybe twice an hour. All devices are running clean Windows 10 1511 builds, fully patched. Also running ThinkPad System Update to get all latest drivers and latest BIOS revision. Latest DisplayLink driver is applied. Problem persists across all devices. How do we stop the ghost clicks from happening? The issue is driving my users crazy. The docking station specifically listed compatability with the Yoga 12 model so I don't see why there should be a problem. I've heard reports the situation is improved if the lid of the Yoga 12 is left open, but we lose deskspace this way and my users tell me this isn't a ... Read more

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
Can you please post the full model number of you computer?
 
Just some guessing.
 
Guess 1: I noticed there was some other discussion about "Ghost Clicks" on this forums. Can you check if those clicks are made by the touch screen? Does it shows the Windows animation like someone is touching the screen?
Just in case can you post your full model number and the hardwareID of your monitor.
 
Also take a look at this article: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-3-1470/documents/ht1...
 
Guess 2: There was a driver update for Synaptics that shuts down the trackpoint when you close the lid. Can you check if your computer has a Synaptics trackpoint/touchpad. Check out the version of the driver.
 
...this are only wild guesses according to what I had read on this forums. But if you tell me that you don't have those problems if you disconnect the Ultradock Pro USB 3.0, maybe the issue is somewhere else.

Hi,I close the lid, the 710 sleeps. I move the external mouse, the 710 wakes. No other laptop I've got does that, I'd consider it a bug. As a work-around you can untick "Allow this device to wake the computer", on the Power Management tab of the HIB-Compliant Mouse properties dialog. Now the mouse won't wake the laptop when the lid is closed, or open of course, which is not ideal. I then changed the wireless mouse, replacing an old Logitech with a new JETech 2.4GHz 0885, the untick was repeated but the mouse still woke the 710. Luckily a documented oddity it seems and unticking "Allow this device to wake the computer" for the HID Keyboard fixed the problem. No idea why one mouse needed this but not the other one. Is this problem of an external mouse waking a closed laptop specific to this model I wonder, and is it likely to get fixed? Cheers

So I recently noticed that when I close the lid completely, the monitor doesn't turn off, I can still see light coming from the gap. I've done a fresh install of windows xp recently, but I didn't notice whether it was from the start, or did I do something to fault it.

I have a Dell inspiron 1520. Well worth noting here that when I choose standy when lid is closed it works, so that means the lever mechanism works. That's why I put this in the software section.

My Yoga 920 seems to ranomly wake from sleep when the lid is closed. I'd had several occasions when travelling to find my latop completely dead when I needed it - or finding it burning up in the confines of my bag. A few times, I've been alerted to problem when I happen to hear my laptop make a notification sound. When this happens, the screen is already on when I open the lid and much of the bettery has been used. I've seen this occur both in and out of my bag. Nothing is plug into the laptop other then the dummy USB holder for the pen. I have Vantage installed and all updates have been applied.

I bought the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen during the week of Thanksgiving 2018.  I watched a ton of reviews showing the battery getting anywhere from 7-9 hrs of life even though it specs say 15 hours.  7-9 is still acceptable for me but my battery only gets ~2-3 hours of life.  This isn't even the worse part. Like many others my laptop suffers from the dreaded battery drain but seems worse than others.  I seem to not even be able to leave it without the A/C adapter plugged in at night or it will be below 40% by the morning. I have tried many of the "hacks" suggested.  Turned the USB always on OFF and turned the Thunderbolt 3 active at boot up OFF.Neither of those made any difference.  All my Windows power/battery settings (close lid, on power, on battery, etc.) are set to StandBy. I thought about doing a battery gauge reset but have seen horror stories that batteries are screwed up after doing that. Any suggestions for very low battery life relative to specs? excessive battery drain?  TIA,S104S

While the laptop is plugged in, closing the lid works properly (in my case, sleeps) and when the lid is subsequently opened it wakes correctly.
If I close the lid while unplugged, the laptop seems to power off hard - the front LED goes out immediately, and when I open the lid the machine boots from cold. The event viewer shows a critical Kernel Power error.
If I close the lid while plugged in, the front LED blinks - I assume this means going to sleep?, but then if I unplug power the machine powers off hard - same reboot and critical error when I open the lid.

Last night I was using the laptop and didn't notice the battery was almost dead. After it died I turned it back on and used it for a few more minutes, when it suddenly shut down with no warning. When I tried to turn it back on, the orange battery light flashed twice (with it plugged in). After a few more attempts, it now does nothing when I press the on button, no lights or anything. Same thing whether plugged in or not. Also, half the Torx screws appear to be stripped all of a sudden, so I can't remove the battery either. Help?

A:Yoga 3 Pro won't turn on

The situation seems "not great", but fixable.  I get machines that someone has already "fixed", so I see some messes.  There is no reset button.  You were doing what I would so, disconnect the main battery, but stripping the screw heads makes things difficult.  Usually, torx screws are hard to strip if you are careful and the driver fits, but it can happen.  I use a reverse-thread 2mm bit in a drill set to spin backwards.  (just as I would do if they were philips screws)   I drill slowly through the head and either the head starts to spin by itself, meaning it is no longer connected to the shaft, or, more likely, the whole screw spins out.  Obviously, the screws will need to be replaced.  You can use a normal philips 3mm or 3.5mm screw.  If some of the heads came off without the shafts, there should be enough to grab with a small pair of vice grips.

Plug the AC adapter (ORIGINAL) into the wall and the white light indicator turn on ? this means the battery receiving power and fully charge ? try to press the power and?nothing, the computer won't turn on. At this point I taught maybe the power on / off switch is stuck and preventing the computer from start up but it was loose and seems ok. Because my flight was delayed =_= and I have many issues with rejected gratification I had to figure it out. I pressed the "HARD RESET TINY HALL" next to the power bottom with tiny toothpick (thanks god I can't do anything bad with it on the airplane, but with bottle of water of course I can ? sarcasm) ? the computer turn on! ? and after a few seconds turn off again. At this point it's a good time to consult the great internet. So, I try pressing the power bottom to 1 min when it's fold, 90 degree or 360 degree, while it's connected to AC ada... Read more

My S5 Yoga 15 won't turn on When I press and hold the power button, the red light comes on only after I let go of the power button, and it stays on for only 5 seconds.Screen never illuminates, fan doesn't twitch or move. I've reseated all cables, tried removing RAM, moving the sticks around. Even with RAM removed, the thinkpad does the same behavior. Pressing the tact switch only seems to reset the system. I've removed the CMOS battery and main battery to reset the CMOS settings. And that doesn't work either. The notebook is just over a year old.

I have a Yoga 3 14 that was running Windows 10. I've had it for approximately 6 months and this is the first time I have had this issue. I was using the laptop in the morning. I went to lunch, leaving it on a table with the screen open. When I came back an hour later, the screen was black, which was not unusual because it would ordinarily sleep being idle so long. But now it won't turn on. When it is plugged in, the battery indicator light on the side glows solid white. When it is on battery, the battery indicator light will flash briefly on when the power button is pushed, but the screen remains black and the keyboard backlight does not turn on. It does not make any noise to indicate that anything else is active. I have tried numerous combinations of the power button, volume keys, etc. to turn it back on. I cannot pop out the battery and try to reboot it on A/C power because the battery is not removable without special tools.  The battery was at 80% or so before this happened so it will take a LONG time to naturally drain, given the fact that the laptop won't turn on to drain it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Additional information: the laptop is not hot, and was cool to the touch when this started.

I recently bought my Lenovo Yoga 710-14ISK and i realised 3 days ago that it won't turn on unless the charging cable is plugged in. I tried it earlier, pressing the power button resulted in no reaction at all. The LED next to it didn't flash or anything. I tried holding it for 30 sec and nothing happened.  As soon as I plugged in the charging cable the LED next to the socket turned on. I pressed the power button and turned on the laptop without any problems.  Battery charge was at 67%.  I then turned it off again and tried to turn it on again without the charging cable, did not work. Only with the charging cable plugged in. Battery chage was the same after I turned it on again.  Runs perfectly fine without charging cable as soon as it is tuned on.  Help please :-)

A:YOGA 710 does not turn on alone

Hi. welcome to the forum
That is a very strange behaviour, since once it will boot (Plugged to the wall) and it keep working without being plugged, so maybe it is not an issue with the battery.  How long is the battery keeping the charge, does it discharge very fast? or works normally?
 
If it is a hardware issue, I don't think there is a different alternative than opening a formal ticket to Lenovo to check it.
 
Some idea that involve some issue with firmware is updating the BIOS to the latest available release: BIOS Update for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 710-14ISK, Yoga 710-15ISK (Sadly does not list on the readme if it fix something related to your issue). Please validate that this BIOS applies to your model.
 
My other idea is to update the Power Management driver (Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI) Driver for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit) ...), and force Windows to make a full shut down.
 
I hope this can give you some hints.
Regards

I have a Yoga 3 that I use for school work.  I forgot to plug in the charger and the battery was drained.  I have had the charger plugged in for 12 hours and the laptop still will not turn on.  The Led light next to the power button is white.  I tried holding the power button down for 1 minute, releasing the button and then holding it down for an additional 10 seconds (I saw this on another forum).  The LED light changed from white to amber then turned off and went back to white, but the computer still will not turn on.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

- I have thinkpad yoga 260.- Power button does nothing.- Plugging the charger does nothing.- Opened the notebook, disconnected the battery and held the power button to discharge. Still nothing.- Hit the reset button on bottom. No change.- The battery was almost full before this happened, so it is not drained for sure. Please help!
