Q: Lenovo Yoga Mode Control crashes daily on Windows ...

I'm running the latest insider version of Windows 10 (soon to be the Anniversary Release) on a Yoga 900. The "Lenovo Yoga Mode Control" ((ymc.exe) has consistently crashed every day for the last few months. Crash reports are logged. Are there any plans to fix this issue any time soon?

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Yoga Mode Control crashes daily on Windows ...

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.)

A: Lenovo Yoga Mode Control crashes daily on Windows ...

What version of YMC are you using?

A new version (1.0.0.9) was posted just a few days ago: Lenovo Yoga Mode Control for Windows 10 (64-bit). Perhaps it addresses the issue with the Anniversary Release.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Like stated in the description. the Lenovo Yoga Control Service require 3% out of the CPU, all the time. and the only thing the service does is checking the orientation of the screen, and disable keyboard and mouse when flipped. This is absurd, especially since it drains battery constantly. I hope that this will be fixed eventually, until that time, I will turn the service off and use the computer like a regular laptop.

I've recently (13th of April) bought new Yoga 530-14IKB. It has adequate CPU i3-8130U, which is faster than i5-6200U in my sister's Acer laptop, but I anyway don't play any games. Despite that, its battery life isn't good. It works about 3-3,5 hours in Chrome. In task manager I've noticed that Yoga Mode Control is constantly using 15-30% CPU and its battery usage is described as very high. After disabling it, I can't switch to the tablet mode and keyboard and touchpad don't turn off. Is there somebody who has Yoga laptop and experience similar problem?

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

Hey. I bought my Yoga 520-14IKB (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256gb NVMe SSD, GeForce 940MX) 2 month ago, had no problems, till last week. Now sometimes i experience such a strange behaviour. Mainly i work on my laptop in normal mode, and sometimes, during such work, it can false trigger a tablet mode for a few (2-3) seconds (notification appers), which causes the keyboard to switch off for this time, despite the fact, that it still stands as a normal laptop, not even close to position, which triggers the yoga mode. How can i fix this? System is Windows 10 April 2018 Update, have all the latest drivers and latest version of BIOS.

Hi everyone. I can see that people with other similar style Lenovo laptops (Yoga 900) complain about the same issue so was wondering if there is a solution or an optimized version of this software. I did an update of the BIOS and the Power Management driver and still a constant power usage.  Once the laptop is flipped the YMC detects it and turns off the keyboard functionality to prevent accidental presses and that is pretty much all until it flipped back and enabled. And all of this requires a constant high CPU usage? Any help would be highly appreciated. I also tried rolling back to older drivers without luck in decreasing this CPU hog usage. To put such load on a i5 6th gen CPU really implies an inferior service integration....

This is now my second Lenovo Yoga 720 13" that I recived from Best Buy. I returned the first one because I noticed the screen did not meet the rubber bezel at the top, exposing the inside of the monitor. This caused me to worry about dust and hair getting behind the screen and possibly destroying it. The second one has the same problem as well as many others. The power button on the first one clicked when I pressed it, however with this one there is no click and I must hold the laptop and press the power button all with more strength than a person should have to just to get it to turn the laptop on. Also the trackpad comes above the right side of the laptop where the left side rests below. There is also a strange rattling coming from the plastic peices at the bottom of the screen. Many of the keys on the keyboard stick at random points when I'm typing causing the keys to not type. Also many of the lights behind the keys are either burned out or extremely dim, now I find it hard to believe that they burned out from my using the laptop since it is fairly new. Lastly there is sharp metal sticking out on the right side of the laptop that often scratches me when I put it into tablet mode. I can still use the laptop, but I feel like I have to be overly careful with it because of all these issues. It is as if this laptop was never checked for defects before it was sent to Best Buy.

I have been using Windows XP Pro since days after its release, and have always praised its stability after upgrading from 98SE.

However, two weeks ago I needed to purchase more RAM and added 512MB (PC2700 DDR) to my system, along with an AOC 9KLR 19" monitor. I write computer training manuals, and have used a dual-screen setup for three years now to allow me to avoid continual Alt-tabbing between apps. Also, having up to 3 or 4 apps including Photoshop open, plus Win Media Player in the background, was proving a little tough going for 256MB.

Now I am experiencing daily O/S crashes, sometimes more often, in which everything freezes and the mouse pointer disappears, to be replaced by the attached image. The only way out, unfortunately, is to hit the cruel Reset button and lose whatever I had been working on. As always there are several apps open at the time, but no more so than before the upgrade, prior to these crashes.

By the way, Win XP Pro was a fresh install on a newly formatted NTFS partition five months ago, and all maintenance schedules are automated twice weekly. My greatest appreciation to anybody who can solve this bothersome problem for me.

The mouse settings and additional settings work fine, but when I click on settings, the Synaptic Control Panel window opens for a split second and then immediately closes again, making it impossible to change the gesture settings. I've updated the touchpad driver multiple times without luck. Anyone know how to solve this issue?

I have always been a fan of Lenovo but things like this will make me think twice about purchasing their laptops again. I have the YOGA 720 13. The Lenovo Yoga mode control service runs in the background and uses an inordinate amount of CPU resources. On the task manager I can see it uses on average 8-10% of CPU resources continuously. Needless to say this will reduce your battery runtime considerably. I waited to see if Lenovo would fix this issue as it has been mentioned in the forums many times previously but it seems they either dont care or are still somehow unaware of this ridiculously bad software engineering problem. This problem seems to be not just on my model but on several other Yoga models. Considering that battery time is one of the most important considerations in a laptop I wish they would fix this. In any case things like this will impact my next purchasing decision. My solution in the end was to disable the service altogether in the Services tab. Its a pity that a nice piece of hardware is being limited by sloppily coded software. Disabling the YMC service causes your keyboard to be responsive when using the laptop in presentation or tent mode which is annoying as well but at least I get some decent battery time (for Windows...). FYI. If you want much better battery runtime forget windows and try Ubuntu linux 18.10, I often get about 30% more battery when doing casual browsing/document editing.

Less than 2 weeks after the end of my 1-year warranty, my Lenovo Yoga 920 crashed. I've used Lenovo products for years and have recommended the Yoga 920 specifically to many of my coworkers, so when I experienced a hard crash (no blue screen, just a stuck image on screen) I assumed it was something Windows/Driver related. For the past two weeks I've been on a journey to try and resolve the issue but haven't had much luck. Below is a history of what I've experienced and what I've tried:Friday, August 2nd - Computer was plugged in and on, but not being used, when I found it unresponsive.

Several weeks ago I was playing Skyrim on the release date. I played for about 40 minutes, and I went to quick save and my computer froze. I restarted to the screen saying an error occured due to a recent software or hardware change. I had to run windows repair to try to fix the issue.

Startup repair failed, I ended up erasing the partition and reinstalling windows. I was slowly reinstalling programs when everything I had open (mozilla, various driver installations, etc) slowly started to freeze and say not responding. After a few minutes of this the computer locked up again, I had to reboot using the power button, only to find that windows was unable to load again, and startup repair was not working.

I reinstalled WIndows 7 for the third time. I ran Prime95 all night. I could hear the CPU fan running in the middle of the night, so im sure it was working. In the morning I checked my computer only to find it had froze again, I hardbooted, and windows was unable to start again.

I've had this problem for a year or so. I've since formatted at least 3 times. Nothing seems to cure it. I can begin having this issue the very same day I have formatted my system. My only idea is that some Windows Update patch from the last year has had some kind of adverse effect with my hardware. There seems to be no trigger. I can leave my system alone, with absolutely no software running, and I can come back to find this error popped up. Maybe it has something to do with Windows Scheduling service? But nothing is scheduled...

What could be causing it? It's nothing more than an annoyance, but I'd like to fix it if possible.

I booted up my Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro today, and it keeps going tablet mode during the Windows startup sequence-(he first time I booted it up after the extended waranty expired at the beginning of the month).  The keyboard lights briefly, but then goes dark and I can only login using the soft keyboard or number pad.  At times the screen will change to portrait mode, even though the unit is clearly landscape oriented, or will invert. If I open up the Lenovo vantage software it clealry showed that the keyboard light was shut off and the touchpad disabled-I could change both settings, but the keyboard still wouldn't work and the touchpad was in landscape and the screen was in portrait, so it was kind of unusable.  I have to rely on touchscreen and soft keyboard.I did a reinstall of Windows, and it worked for about an hour before reverting to tablet mode only.I have changed Settings to eliminate Tablet mode, to no avail.I tried deleting the HID driver for selecting laptop/slate indicator, but it just reinstalled on the next start-up.Hardware sensor issue or software?

(I can wake it up fine when in sleep mode though) I also used the command prompt to turn hibernation off/ on and made sure the keyboard was set to allow to wake the computer in device manager. The only way I could use my computer again is to force shutdown and reboot. Does anyone know of a solution where I can wake up my computer without forcing it to shutdown?

Dear All, I have a lenovo yoga 500- 14IBD, my problem is the flight mode key is not working as well as the osd for touchpad on/off. I have windos 10 64bit, I was advised to install energy management software or flight mode driver (couldn't find both).I reinstalled all of the intel components and now it works only if I start my computer with the ac cord (clearly it is a faulty power management or conflicting services) could anyone please advise !! Thanks a lot in advance. Mostafa

Hi, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, and on a daily basis the computer loses signal to the monitor . The event view is Kernal Power Event 41 Critical Crash.
 
The signal loss happened once a few years ago where I removed the video card and it worked again up until the last few months it has been getting progressively worse, so I got sick of removing the card, so I now find if I shut down the power, it comes good after a while.
 
Regards

I had the an issue but with Yoga 530. First of all, the system simply hanging when I try to put it to sleep or shut down. I hunted down the cause and it seems the new audio driver causing it. I rolled back the audio driver to 6.0.1.8591 from 6.0.1.8703 and the system immediately started to work as desired. I used Lenovo Diagnostics Tool and checked Windows' inbuilt reliability monitor for more details and this helped me to track down what caused the problem. Unfortunately, Vantage software forced to update this driver so I had to switch off this function.

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
