Anyone ever dealt with #Thinkpad ( #x230 in my case) going to sleep randomly, for no reason, because it thinks the lid is closed? Even happens in BIOS setup or liveusb. I put a magnet in front of hall sensor and it behaves as expected, so I'm really stumped as it seems the sensor works properly. Motherboard power issue?
@neauoire yeah, I have had trouble finding others posting about it online. It definitely strikes me as hardware electrical issue. I might have to open it up and also look for any damaged cable, etc. ... Frustrating, just bought it off this guy yesterday. Really undecided whether to ask for refund, cuz that's stressful in itself (and these machines are so hard to find).. 😓
