On this issue, it played up again, with the fan problems meaning the
machine was getting way too hot. So i sent it back to Lenovo who
cleaned everything out and replaced both the keyboard and fan. All
under warranty so no cost - other than the 10 days without my machine.

Everything is working now with the machine running cool.
