Oh dear, this is bad. It is the motherboard. I have went through 4 t30s with a similar problem. It is on it's last legs, the only way to fix it is replace the mainboard (motherboard) (trust me i'm an I.T guy). Sorry to tell you that.

The screen will dim on battery power to save energy. The power settings, found when you right click the power icon in taskbar notification area and go to power options, can be changed to your personal preferences. The shut down issue may be what is running, I can't say what is running, but look at the Start up process in MSCONFIG and shut down what is not necessary at Start UP. Look at tutorials on Faster Start up and Shut down. There may be many items you can shut down/disable to speed up these events. QUESTION: Is this a upgrade to WIN 7 Ultimate, If so your computer me be a bit short on specs, in other words you have reached the computers hardware limits. How much RAM, CPU speed...etc.
There's nothing wrong with powering your laptop, or desktop, down by clicking the Power button and letting it go into standby, sleep, or hibernate mode, much of the time. On your laptop, usually just tapping the Power Button will perform the same function as the following instructions. When doing this, click on the symbol just to the right of the Start button.This allows all open windows to be suspended properly, with current data saved.When you startup the next morning, your open programs will still be running in the background. Clicking on your logon will have your right back where you left off. If you see the same symbol with the exclamation mark , click and leave the computer alone, because it will be in the process of installing important updates before shutting down.
Nothing beats a complete "Shut Down" through the Start menu in the lower left-hand corner of your Windows screen. Mouse-over to the far right icon, and click on Shut Down in the popup window.All your open programs will be closed properly, data saved, and memory and cache cleared. This is like going to bed at night with nothing on your mind, sleeping soundly, and waking up refreshed in the morning.
Then, when the computer is powered up the next time, it will be operating at its optimum performance levels without being "bogged" down with excessive leftover garbage from previous sessions. It leaves you with a fresh start-up the next time you are ready to use your computer.
To summarize, tapping the Power button most of the time, and allowing the computer to enter sleep mode, is fine. Occasionally, do a complete Shut Down to clear everything out of memory. Your laptop/desktop will thank you...lol.
Yes! a total shutdown insures that windows remains stable, leaving it on will eventually corrupt files and forcing a re-installation of your operational system, most people have a habit of closing the lid and opening when needed because they don't want to wait for windows to load, this will work so long then trouble developes.
My IBM is about the same as yours and did the same thing. It turned out to be a CPU Cooling Fan. When you turn the laptop on, try to look in the air outlet port and see if the fan is turning. Another possibility is lint and dirt around the fan. The unit has a temperature sensor that will shut the machine down on a "Hot CPU" signal.
I'm sorry but by what you have explained you will need to take this machine to a pc repair store and have the AC/DC adaper on the laptop itself checked out just in case it has burned out. Also you have to have the power supply itself checked just in case feed back has damaged that too.
If you feel like doing this yourself you will need a mulimeter to test the voltage coming from the power supply and the adapter on the laptop motherboard.
Also, if this has just happened then leave the unit to cool down and try again as if the cooling fan has seized then the laptop will automatically shut down when it reaches critical temperature.
You should charge the battery longer about four hours. Then the light should be green. Try. If that don't work disconnect the battery and check for anything. Connect your battery again and take a look. If it still isn't functioning please let me know.
