I was very happy with this machine. Enough power, cute design and fancy features like the 2-in-1 or the pencil thing. Until ctrl buttons send their kisses
I received less than ten days before, but it was enough to see a stupid dysfunctionality. Sometimes I press ctrl buttons, and the OS doesn't receive any stroke, even if I press it again and again. I'm the left-ctrl guy, so I notice this little ghost much more often to the left-ctrl, but it happens to the right as well.
Is not exist any specific workflow which I can "un-crush" the ctrl-keystroke-unsent phenomenon, as well is not exist any workflow when exactly it happens. Sometimes it stopped to be crushed, when I pressed three or six times. Sometimes it enough to push the right ctrl or pushed for a different angel.
Of course, I google-it. I found some very sad stories. Someone cut 2mm the keyboard-to-motherboard (link or link #2), someone found a G-spot on the laptop, and when someone presses it the dead keystrokes come to life again (link).
For me, it is not very easy to send it back. I live in Cyprus; I bought it from amazon.com. I paid more than 100 dollars in import and shipping fees. I also purchased a glass-protector for the display (30 dollars)... so Lenovo I love you too!
My plans are first to try to change the left ctrl-key with fn. Maybe to try to found to the ebay another keyboard part and replace it by myself. Maybe to the pray to the bits gods to stop this... I dont know. I know that Lenovo should do his job better ^^

1. Download KeyTweak 2.3 -install it. It's free. It's a remapping / reassigning software for keyboards.
2. Open KeyTweak.exe (I use the Cortana search to find it).
3. On the app screen you'll see a small keyboard that's not exactly the same as what you have, but just tap the key "83"
4. In the drop-down menu "Choose New Remapping" select Right-Shift.
5. Click the "Remap Key" button. Then Apply.
Let us know how it goes
