Hi My brand new thinkpad T470 won't turn on after it goes to sleep mode and even when it was shutdown properly. Had to use the reset button at the back to turn it on. Please advise.

I'm also facing the same issue, need to hard reset by very small hold in the back of laptop. Anyone can help?

Seems the T440 and newer thinkpads have a reset button on the bottom that acts like pulling the battery. If the systems don't turn on when shutdown it needs to be looked at, could be a motherboard issue or something loose with the power button.

Apparently this model is known for this issue based on what I searched online. Sure, there are ways to get it up and running again, but none of them solved the underlying issue.

If I were you, I'd call Lenovo support after running their diagnostics. They might have to RMA that unit.

I found the way to work around: Keep power plugged in and choose sleep. After that remove the power plugged and it works like a charm :) hope this will help a lot of ppl face this problems
