comment Laptop reacts to power cord as if it was the power button
Fun fact: the repair dude arrived today, dug his way into the guts of the machine, and surprisedly exclaimed "hey, there is no CMOS battery in here!" In other words, good catch :)

comment Laptop reacts to power cord as if it was the power button
Thanks for all the follow-up! I tried shutting down, keeping the power chord plugged and turning on again, but the machine didn't respond to the power button; the only way I could get it to start up was to unplug and re-insert the chord, but then of course I couldn't test booting without removing the power chord... I have filed a support request with Lenovo, to see if I can fix this myself without voiding the warranty of the laptop, or if I have to send it in. Thanks again!

Also, is there anything I can do to verify if this is indeed the case?

OK. Does this mean I need to send the laptop to a repair workshop? (Or can I somehow "revive" the battery without having to open the casing?)
