@niconiconi I always think one big problem of these laptops is things are so tightly integrated that there's no way to separate them and replace only the faulty parts..

Hitting the power button a couple of times repeatedly with power disconnected, made my Thinkpad pass POST again. XFS rootfs is corrupted and couldn't be mounted anymore, but xfs_repair -L (discard outstanding journal) fixed it.

Now the machine is back to business again.

Motherboard is still a suspect, but It really seemed to be just some conductive metal debris in the keyboard, need to wait and see.

My Thinkpad suddenly died. The symptom is strange - It behaves as if the power button is shorted, it first started when a "poweroff" prompt appeared on the screen, and the machine lost power after 5 secs. After that, the power button isn't as responsive as usual, a hard press is needed to power it back on, and it always lost power after 5 secs.

I've seen enough broken Thinkpad and I don't believe it's how the power supply protection works - i don't think it can inject power key presses, does it? Anyway, I really hope it is just a defective keyboard...
