Hi Gael,
I had the same "Morse Code" problem on a T400 and thought it was a one-of-a-kind..

 

But, I have some good news for you... there is a Lenovo BIOS update that addresses this and it worked me...

As to the question of how to get the ME back to factory default, here isn the process I use:

 

In BIOS, select Config-> Intel (R) AMT-> Intel (R) AMT Control- Disable ... exit BIOS and reboot

 

Then repeat the above enabling the AMT control, and you will be back at factory default- PWD is "admin" again
