I have a lenovo Z61t Thinkpad. When it comes back from sleep mode the neither the keyboard nor the track pad are responding at all. I need to pull the battery to reboot and it then works fine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Try going to the device manager and then look for the keyboard and touchpad drivers, right-click on them and click properties, and if they have power management tabs, make sure the option to allow the os to disable the device is Unchecked and the option to allow the device to wake the system if available is selected. save your settings, restart the computer and test the devices after waking up the system from sleep mode the next time. hope it helps

How do i change the screen from vertical display to horizontal

The IBM ThinkPad Z61t computer runs the Windows operating system. Normally, Windows is displayed on a monitor in a manner that makes it easy to read. If you want to change the screen display configuration (from vertical to horizontal), modify the screen display properties in Windows itself. This process causes the computer to rotate the image displayed on the screen by 90, 180 or 270 degrees, depending on the setting you choose.

1.Right-click on an empty portion of the Windows desktop on the Z61t.

2.Click "Properties."

3.Click "Display."

4.Click "Change display settings."

5.Click the "Orientation" drop-down window. Select the "Landscape" option to make the screen display items in a horizontal manner.

If the machine is not powering either with the battery and / or just the adapter, there could already be a hardware problem for your machine. If it is still within warranty, I suggest you contact Lenovo Warranty support on this number - 1 877 453 6686.

What is the meaning of thinkpad?

The meaning? There is no implicit meaning behind the term thinkpad, it was a made up term by IBM for their laptops. The ThinkPad name itself was inspired by leather-bound pocket notepads issued to all IBM employees with the corporate motto 'Think' embossed on the cover. The combination of Think and NotePad lead to the name ThinkPad. IBM's corporate naming team was initially against using the ThinkPad name since all previous IBM computers were referred to by model numbers rather than names. However, the popularity of the ThinkPad brand with the press convinced IBM to retain the name.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

I have a lenovo z61t it often overheats and shuts down. how can i trouble shoot the fan? are there any fixes for this?

With something as small as a laptop, and with something as small as a laptop fan, troubleshooting is easy. You should easily be able to hear the whirring of the fan if it's running, especially if it's hot. If you don't hear it, it isn't working.
