Well, it's been over two weeks since this thread has been posted to so I'm suspecting that you, indeed, did something and are back home now. My x210 doesn't have the push out with the "jack knife" sofa/bed so it's not an issue for me. I'm curious tho, since we have a futon with a similar problem. To be completely honest, I NEVER sleep on it so it's not a huge issue for me but my wife is concerned for our guests . I'm thinkin' it keep guests from over staying their welcome . (I don't make that thought process common knowledge).
BTW, before I even got to the end of the original post, I did think "why is this person waiting until 2 days before leaving on a trip to fix an issue?" I was glad to see the OP 'fess up' at the end of the post.
So, to the OP, let the rest of us see how you remedied your situation!
If you're not livin' on the edge, you're takin' up too much space!
