I’m not sure if this is a repeat or not, but I couldn’t seem to find this exact situation in any other discussions.
Despite my laptop having battery power (> 60%), pressing and/or holding the power button does nothing. No lights, no sounds, etc.
However, plugging in the laptop into an external source (via the charger), the power button then lights up and it appears to charge. At this point, I can either press the power to start it up, or unplug the laptop then press power to start it up. Either way, for some reason, it seems the laptop will only boot up when plugged into an external source, even if only for 3 seconds…
This situation seems to occur every time the laptop has been closed for at least a few hours (shut down, sleeping, etc.)
Any help is appreciated!
