I'm using a Flex 3-1130. It's a 2 in 1 netbook with a 360 degree hinge. Does anyone know (or know where I can find) the sensor signal that tells the OS what position the lid is in? In Windows 10, the netbook goes to sleep when the lid is closed, it wakes up in laptop mode when it's opened and it switches to tablet mode (turning off the keyboard) when the lid passes 180 degrees. When the machine is running Linux, opening the lid past 180 doesn't turn off the keyboard and closing it all the way doesn't change the lid state to "off", so I know it's not a simple hardware switch. What signal/memory address/whatever can I examine to see what position the lid is in?
