Keyboard/touchpad disabled in laptop mode, enabled in tablet mode

Flex 4-1580, Win10 64bit. All updates installed.


When working at my desk I keep the lid of the laptop closed and use an external keyboard, mouse, and monitor. When I open the lid, it asks if I want to go into tablet mode. Regardless of whether I say yes or no, the keyboard and touchpad are disabled.


If I rotate the screen around to a "tent" or tablet configuration, the keyboard and touchpad start working.


I have installed all updates I could find and tried manually toggling tablet mode but nothing helps. I would like to be able to use the computer as a laptop when I travel without having to use an external keyboard and mouse.
