Firmware issu

The lid message happens  every time to me when I reboot from Linux and immediately enter firmware on any  XO1 on any  build using Q2F12 or 13.  I wasn't testing for any other symptoms on rebooting from Linux,  just that  lid message on a Linux reboot directly into firmware.

I'm missing something.  If that's the whole story, why doesn't this problem 
show up on every reboot from Linux?  I do that every 4 hours with only 
occasional problems.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
