Keyboard locks up on restart from hiberate

I have a Lenovo Y410. Sometimes when I come back from a hibernate, the keyboard is locked. There is BLUE LIGHT in the shape of a small lock with the letter "A" on it on the bar near the power/on/off button. What does that mean? How can I unlock the keyboard without shutting down the computer cold turkey? Thanks.

It seems it's the Power Scheme settings that you need check it out.

  1. Right click on the "battery/cord" icon from the task bar
  2. Choose Power Options
  3. On the Select Power Plan, check the Balanced option
Please come back if you still have the same problem, or if you have other problem.

Your rate on my solution is appreciated!!!!

Y410 Keyboard locked, I can't type anything

If you keyboard is locked up and unusable you might want to try rebooting your PC. However since you cant use your keyboard and IF your mouse does not respond either, simply hard boot it by holding in the power button until your PC shuts down. This should cure the problem.
Restart your PC and you should have your keyboard back.
I hope this help you
Thank you

I have a Thinkpad t60. For the past few days it won't go into hiberation when I close the lid. It just stays on and consumes the battery.

I have seen this issue before with my T60. It seemed to be related to not having restarted my laptop in a while. I used to use hibernate rather than shutting down my laptop for weeks at a time. Actually restarting my laptop seemed to get hibernate to work again.

In addition, you can check to see if for some reason the hibernate option has been disabled.

In Win XP (Win 7 is very similar):
  1. Click Start and select Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Power Options.
  3. On the Hibernate Tab, ensure Enable hibernation is selected (check mark).
  4. On the Advanced Tab, ensure that the setting for When I close the Lid is set to Hibernate (select it from the drop-down list if necessary). There should be an option for when plugged in and when on battery. Set both to your preference.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using

Instead of the letter ''O'' I get the number 6 on my keyboard.

Your number lock is on, look on the top right of the keyboard for a key marked "Num Lock" (can sometimes be coloured blue), hit that key once and your keyboard will return to normal.
