Flex 3-1580 - No automatic pc mode/tablet mode switch

Hey guys,

I bought a Flex 3 1580 about a week ago. I reformatted the computer because the video drivers were screwed up, but now when I flip the laptop around to tablet mode, nothing happens. The keyboard cuts out and everything but I no longer get the little pop up that asks if i want to switch. I've tried going into tablet settings and telling it to automatically switch without asking, but this also doesn't work.

I'm wondering if maybe I missed a cruicial piece of software after I reformatted because it was working perfectly before, but I reinstalled everything available on the lenovo website and nothing helped.

I've tried googling this problem over and over but I can never seem to find any answers, especially for this specific model.

Really would appreciate help with this. It's not a huge deal because I can still swith manually, but it certainly would be nice to have it working as before.

Thanks!

if you have done this and it is not working, i have to ask have you ever had tablet mode working since you reinstalled windows 10?

Thx dave

Re: No automatic pc mode/tablet mode switch

Hello, thank you for your response. Tablet mode works if I go into the settings and set it manually, but it no longer automatically switches based on keyboard position. This feature worked on the previous Win10 installation, but not since the reinstall. I thought maybe I'm missing a Lenovo driver that controls this? But I see nothing on their support page regarding it.

Wanted to update because I think I figured it out. The yoga support page has drivers for "yoga mode control" that's supposed to be responsible for controlling the automatic modes. 

Figured why not try it on the flex, and everything works as it should now. Not sure why Lenovo doesn't include those drivers on the flex support page.
