You could try *Reduce* and use assumptions and/or domain specification. 
For instance,

Reduce[D[A, Lambda[in]] == 0, Lambda[in]]
Reduce[D[A, Lambda[in]] == 0 && k > 0, Lambda[in]]
Reduce[D[A, Lambda[in]] == 0, Lambda[in], Reals]
Reduce[D[A, Lambda[in]] == 0 && 0 < k <= n && a > 0, Lambda[in], Reals]

(Note that in the above examples, the values I have used are just there 
to illustrate what you can do with *Reduce*. I have not tried to solve 
the equation.)
