Hi all,

I have a Lenovo W510 laptop with Windows 10 Professional. I see in the power settings that I can configure the power button to put the laptop to sleep when pressed. I have it configured as such but when I press the power button, nothing happens. If I manually put the laptop to sleep via the start menu, it sleeps fine.

Am I missing something obvious?

 

EDIT:

 

Note, I've cross posted this question here: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/180399-Laptop-power-button-and-sleep-settings

 

This post says that there is most likely some bug with the Lenovo W510 laptop line so I accept that as a solution.

Have you tried pushing it for more than just a short click, not long enough to turn it off but just enough? It's hard to explain lol. I used to have a dell inspirion that I set-up to work like that and when I just touched the button for a quick second nothing happened I actually had to hold it for half a second to send it to sleep without it turning off.

I have tried pushing it down with various durations - but stopping short from turning it off. So far nothing has worked.

Then all I can say is it's a bug, it's a Lenovo, what do you expect, the only decent hardware they make are the monitors. :lmao:
