I have a liberated mostly harmless x230. Everything works except one peculiar behavior - If I power off, then I cannot switch on by pressing the power switch. It seems stuck. I have to 2-3 times remove the battery, plug in AC power adapter and close the lid and open it multiple times before it turns on
I think I’ve seen this issue once before. Unplugging the RTC battery from the motherboard sorted the issue out. If you want, you can send the laptop over to me and I can debug/fix the issue for you. You can remove the disk before you send the laptop. Its not an OS issue as far as I can gather.
If you want, I can post a vide of this next time I fully turn off and try turning on - for now I put it to sleep and then wake up.
