I've had similar problems with my X1 Carbon.  Then I discovered that it
was possible to push the devices further into the port. There's a
distinct resistance about 90% from full insertion. Pushing it further
requires considerably more force. This makes you believe the plug is
fully inserted before it actually is. But the power lines are connected
at this point, adding to the illusion by lighting up any power LEDs etc.

Maybe you are being fooled by this design feature too?
