X200 Tablet logins in portrait orientation as default

My X200t now always logins in the portrait orientation. This makes me have to press the rotation button for three times before I can type password. Annoying...

 

It wasn't like this when I bought it. I don't know what kind of change I made. I couldn't find any way to reset it. Any advice?

Same problem, due to some recent driver update. I've had nothing but problems with Lenovo's driver updates over the last two years.

SOLUTION!

 

Since I couldn't find a reply on this forum, I thought I would post my solution (Win 7) since it seemed to have worked for me.

 

1.  Start up computer in tablet mode and hold it like a tablet so that it defaults to portrait mode.

2.  Once the login screen appears, switch to notebook mode and rest it on your lap/table.

3.  WITHOUT LOGGING IN, turn off the computer (bottom right for Windows 7).

 

Every time I boot up the computer now, everything seemed fine.  Many people have said that it could be a driver issue, BIOS, etc., but I exhausted all those possibilities.

 

This seems to hae solved the problem for good.
