Yoga 900-13isk disable keyboard in tent mode

Q: Yoga 900-13isk disable keyboard in tent mode

Hi, I have a yoga 900 13isk, i love to set the screen in tent mode, not to watch it as a tent, but to put the keyboard face down and use it as a screen stand. The keyboard is properly disabled when i put it in tablet mode (full 360° rotation), but not in tent mode (above 270° keyboard rotation), i tried playing with ymc service but without success, is this by design? or did i mess something up? Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all, I've noticed that my Yoga 910 is not auto rotatingwhen I set it to tent mode nor to tablet mode. Not only it doesn't auto rotate but it also keep the keyboard active... Not sure if this is a faulty sensor problem or just some bug. I've tried to follow the solutions presented in other topics but without success even tried a system restore but the problem is still here. I can't really identify which update has created this situtation but I know that when a couple of months ago it was still working. I also have the impression that more are affected, so could Lenovo release a patch to troubleshoot and solve such an important issue for a Yoga product (basically there is no Yoga functionality with this problem). Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

A few weeks ago (after some updates) I noticed my Yoga does not automatically disable the keyboard and mouse when swithced to tent or tablet mode.  ------------------------Things I have tried:------------------------ 1. Deleteing every single Lenovo utility and driver that could be related to this and reinstalling them. (Starting with Lenovo Yoga Control which should be the driver that runs the transitions, but also BIOS, chipstet and the standard lenovo settings and utilities). In any case, YMC.exe was and is still running in task manager, to no avail. 2. Installing previous verions of Lenovo Harmony (which actually recognizes when my device goes into tent or tablet mode and gives me the popup saying "your device is now in tent mode" but does not disable the keyboard or mouse). 3. Doing a system restore to a few months ago, but problem persists.  4. Checking if my Sensor Monitoring Service was running (it is running).  I am pretty irritated at this point and fresh out of ideas. Any help pretty please

So tent mode on my X1 Yoga Gen 2 is not working.  It was working when I first received but the fingerprint reader wasn't.  I updated the fingerprint driver, and that now works, but tent mode is not.  I've trired to follow other suggestions, but there is no rotation lock in my action bar, or in my settings whichever position  I have the Yoga in - tent, tablet, whatever - no rotation lock at all. I've updated all my drivers, aplied the specific fix for this, checked the registery settings, done an in-place restore of windows 10 - everything to no avail.  The sensors work as I can see the prientation just fine from a monitoring app I downloaded.  And one more thing - the service Sensor Monitoring Service is not running.  When I try to start it it says that it started and then stopped.  Not sure if that's relevant. Help please.  I paid a fair amount extra above an X1 price to have a tent style computer, and it's just not working.

Hello!I've bought used Lenovo Yoga 2 13 few days ago. It had installed Windows 10 Home on it but since I didn't wanted to have any files from previous owner I've wiped entire drive and reinstalled it. Windows have taken care of all the drivers so I haven't any problems here, but I've never get to work any tablet capabilities of this laptop. To be accurate the keyboard locks out when laptop is in full tablet mode but you'll bend it just few degrees and you have turned on keyboard and touchpad again. Rotation doesn't work at all so I can forget about any modes between laptop mode and tablet mode. I've installed all the drivers, I've installed Yoga Mode Control but... it simply doesn't work at all. I have all the files, I have a YMC service that is "officially" working in the background but it doesn't do anything and turning it on and off makes no difference. I even installed Lenovo Vantage but that didn't help too. So after a week I've decided to downgrade this machine to Windows 8.1 since this laptop was made specifically for this system and there was also that Lenovo Transition software. And I did it. Now I have Windows 8.1. I've downloaded all the drivers and also the Lenovo Transition. But guess what... it doesn't work at all too. I've checked old version, then 2.0 version, then YMC again and all of them does not work at all. YMC actually "works" the same way as Windows 10 version. I have no idea what that could be. I've turned on auto-rotate, rotation lock button is in Aut... Read more

Hello, As said in the title, this is what actually happens: While in tent mode, the CPU never goes beyond 35% use. The fan almost never kicks in and the overall experience is slowed down a lot. I set the Processor Cooling mode to Active in the current power plan, turned off "Intelligent Cooling" in Vantage and set it to "High performance" but it didn't fix it. It didn't seem to have any effect whatsoever. When running a CPU intensive task, as soon as I turn the screen back to normal mode, the fan starts spinning and the CPU use can go back up to 100%. I like having the laptop in tent mode, with a keyboard and mouse. Is there something I missed?

I have factory reset my yoga 3 pro numerous times and I can never get the keyboard to disable in tablet mode. Furthermore, the laptop should automatically switch to tablet mode when flipping the screen into tent mode, etc but it doesn't. Also, the laptop never is able to auto-rotate vertically.  I have followed the instructions on the lenovo site by keeping lenovo harmony and one key optimizer but that solution never works. Recently I have noticed that the screen brightness key doesn't work properly either. I use the dimming keys and they either make the screen the highest level of brightness or the lowest but no level in-between. I have factory reset this laptop so many times. I feel like some of the original programs that came with the computer could be interfering or Lenovo just doesn't bother to keep the software up to date...

Hello, I think the subject of this thread describes exactly the issue i have on my Yoga 2 Pro. In Laptop mode everything works fine but as soon as I enter the stand, tent or tablet mode (i.e. display angle > 180°) the CPU of the system stays at 800 Mhz all the time and wont speed up. Of course the system works extremely slow on 800 MHz. Its just not usable.When changing to laptop mode everything works fine again. I have tried different energy modes in the windows settings but it didnt have any effect.

Wondering if the X1 Extreme folds over into tent or tablet mode. The photos I see of it show only it opening up flat. I don't think it folds over into tent mode or tablet mode like a Yoga. Which leads me another question. The 4K screen is touch enabled and I see a photo with a lenovo pen being used to write on the screen. Does it come with the pen or need to buy that seperately? Also, how practical is it to use the pen when the screen is upright? Seems unnatural to write on an upright surface. Is the screen sturdy? I believe it is. I've seen a yoga (don't know the model) where the screen was a bit wobbly and sensitive to moving, probably because the hinge is designed to fold into tablet mode.

A:screen will not rotate in tent mode

There are spme basic questions which need answers.
Is tent mode the only which does not rotate?  Will it rotate without a video and does it make a difference if the video is running when you rotate?
Does the keyboard disable when you open the lid more than 180 degrees?
Is there a box in the notifications area showing Rotation Lock?
Have you ever gotten any pop up messages concerning the rotation and tablet mode?

How do I correct this.

A:Screen upside down in Tent Mode

The system has a Gyro sensor and an Accelerometer that should detect how you have the LCD positioned and adjust the display automatically.   Is this something that you have always noticed out of box, or something that had recently just started? Was there any changes made to the system just prior to you noticing the problem? If you have recently reinstalled windows on the system please try installing the Intel Dynamic Platform driver windows 8.1 , DPD Win 10 and chipset driver win 8.1 , chipset Win 10 Please report back here if you continue to have problems.

The major differences I see, looking at: http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/Lenovo_Yoga_900_13_inch are: the SK2 has Intel Iris HD 540 graphics, slightly different CPUs and PCIe SSDs.
 
Regarding driver updates, there's a feature in Lenovo Companion that assists with that.

I'm at my wits' end here. My Bluetooth device disappeared from my Windows 10 OS computer sometime last week (maybe earlier, I'm honestly not sure). It doesn't appear in the notification center or device manager. There is no on/off switch in settings. It's impossible to connect new devices. I've done a clean install with no results. I downloaded the newest driver package from Intel's site and the Bluetooth device reappeared, but wouldn't connect, and running the troubleshooter resulted in a "Bluetooth radio fixed" confirmation, but still wouldn't connect. Upon uninstalling the latest from Intel (20.50), I got an error when attempting to install drivers from Lenovo's site (photo attached). I've uninstalled and reinstalled all Intel network adapters, drivers, and software. I've run the troubleshooter on Bluetooth as well as Hardware and Devices. I don't know what else I can do here apart from a BIOS reset, but even that is supposedly up to date.  Lenovo Service Bridge says all my software and hardware is fine, that my drivers are all up to date. What else can I do? I've attempted every fix I can find on the web and still nothing.
