Lenovo P11 pro force productivity mode when attach keyboard

2021-03-08, 15:17 PM

When I attach the official keyboard onto the device, the productivity mode activates, there's no way to disable it as far as I know

Also, the productivity mode will deactivate/activate whenever I flip the keyboard to the back of the device, which is more disturbing than word can describe.

Is there a way to disable productivity mode for good?

Welcome to the Community Forums @Realfranny!

 

Great to have you here!

 

You may try going to Settings > type the word "navigation" and look for the "System Navigation" option to change the Tab P11 Pro's navigating feature.

However and to set your expectations, it could be that the Tab P11 Pro itself is automatically enabling or switching to Productivity mode as soon as the keyboard (official) is used to it as it mimics the laptop/computer (Windows) like appearance when using the Tab P11 Pro to any activities that requires the physical keyboard which cannot be disabled or removed permanently.

 

Thanks,

Why do you mention navigation? that is not related to my problem at all. And about the productivity mode, so there's no way to disable for good I see But is there a way I could disable the trigger that enables automatically when I attach/detach the keyboard?

Same issue for me also, there is no way of disabling the automatic jump to productivity mode when connecting to the official keyboard accessory or flipping it to the back. This is really inconvenient as in some cases i do not want to go into productivity mode. There needs to be a software option to turn off this automatic jump to productivity mode if the user wants to just enable this manually.

I believe the same issue may occur with the P11 (non pro) - I don’t have the keyboard so I can’t say for certain. There is no option to turn off auto switching to Productivity Mode.

 

However, what I did discover, is that a previous firmware for the P11 (non pro) did have the ability to disable auto switching to Productivity Mode. I don’t know why this feature was removed, or, if the same feature was ever included in a previous firmware for the P11 Pro.

 

I'm hoping there is a good reason this feature was removed - perhaps it was bugged/didn’t work? Frustratingly, since Lenovo don’t bother with change logs etc. there is no way to know why it was removed.

 

Sorry for the photos (they are not mine).

Same here, but this annoying bug is on my Lenovo M8 tablet.  Whenever I connect a bluetooth keyboard, it switches to Productivity Mode, and chimes to further annoy me.  I managed to turn off the chime, but the automatic switching to Productivity Mode is still there.  There's no way to disable it except to go into settings/display/system navigation and turn it off there every darn time.  It keeps coming back and I guess that's how Lenovo wants it.

There is a firmware update that (should) solve this, but you can also check this thread for another way to disable it: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Android-based-Tablets-and-Phablets/Productivity-Mode-feedback/m-p/5068560?page=1#5349094
