No power button or battery lights for 5 to 10 minutes

HP Recommended
Spectre Pro x360 G2530
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an odd issue with this HP Spectre Pro x360 G2 laptop. 


The laptop will not show power button or battery light for at least 5 to 10 minutes after it is shut down.


This happens:

-Every time I make any Bios configuration changes (even simple ones), click save and exit, then it shuts down instead of reboot.

-Every time I click shut down via start menu.

-Every time I upgrade the bios.

-Every time I run offline diagnostics tools.


I have upgraded the bios, all firmware, all windows updates, all drivers. 

I have turned off fast boot. This is NOT a fast boot sleep mode issue. 


What I have to do to get it to turn back on is wait roughly 5 to 10 minutes (sometimes more) with the power adapter unplugged (usually). After a period of time, the power button light will finally turn back on when I press it. During the wait time I sit there and periodically press the power button to see if it will turn on yet. Once the power light is willing to turn back on I plug the power adapter back in. 


The battery is good and holds power for a long time without issue. I have run all HP diagnostics tools available both online and offline. It is not over heating. The system time and date are correct. 


Any help would be very much appreciated 🙂
