Hello there !
We have big problems with our Lenovo T500 model 2241 CTO.
We are running Windows Vista on them.
The problem is when we are shutting down, they mostly dont shut off correctly.
It seem that windows are shutting down, but when the screen turns black, the diodes are still lid.
I have been reporting this problems several times ,and have made some request on the issue, and when support gets onsite the replace the motherboard, and the machine then works correctly ??
I have done bios update to the newest release, this dosent help.
Its seems that the problem is more when using the PC in dock.
Not everyone have the problem, but most off our users does, we are 200 workers with this machine.
I have some models with XP & win 7 on, and some with Ubuntu on, they dont seem to have this issue, only Vista.
Do someone have a suggestion ?
Kind regards Thomas
