well t the button press should be a bios setting... not sure if lenovo
hides it. Most of the time it is in the power settings area in the
bios. Worst comes to worst you can always make a sleeve in the
backpack with something ridged like 1/4 mdf to sandwich the laptop in
to keep it from flexing. Swiss army has one that should accomplish it.
The only problem is you will then be advertising whats in the bag.
Don't forget to try the hibernate option instead of sleep. (I know its
pretty much a deal breaker, I like the instant wake of the sleep
option too)
