Possibly a related issue is that on rare occasion, the X240 goes to sleep while I am typing on it. I am thinking it may for some reason think the lid is closed (?) and refuses to start/goes to sleep.
I have for now permanently removed the internal battery, so the worst case is it will take about three minutes of tinkering to get it running. Would be nice to not need to go through the hassle every couple of days. Also, this happens periodically -- It stopped doing this for a couple of weeks, then yesterday started again (yesterday, just before this started again, I turned off 30-day standby. Restoring it does not seem to make any difference).

Those can be cleaned with some "electronic contact cleaner", either a spray, or a fluid like 90% or stronger isopropyl alcohol.
If a spray, look for electronic, NOT electric.
I have three X240 machines, no battery problems whatsoever.
Ireland is on FULL lockdown until at least 31 January 2021!
