Re: Auto rotation erratic on Yoga 11 after Windows 10 upgrade

That's a pretty clunky workaround! I'm seeing the same behaviour - autorotate button works, but screen doesn't rotate. All the latest drivers and packages installed. There's got to be something simple getting in the way...I'm not sure I have the appetite for a full rebuild from scratch, but it certainly is a core feature for me...ugh I don't have Transition installed at all...let us know how your experience goes.

Re: Auto rotation erratic on Yoga 11 after Windows 10 upgrade

What a saga!

I pushed a few buttons and magically I was transported back to Win 8.1. Auto-rotate and rotate lock now all good again.

Following the instructions from Lenovo (on the link I mentioned earlier) I removed most of the Lenovo apps.

I then once more installed Win 10 - it downloaded the whole lot again, all 2.6Gig!

No rotate lock now, but with faith I installed every Lenovo driver and app that I could find.

Ooooops! Still no rotate lock. Back to phone support.

Control panel/Display/Change display settings: Here I could check the "Allow screen to auto-rotate" box.

So screen now auto-rotates, but no rotate lock available.

I experimented a bit and found that when screen rotated to portrait mode, rotate lock was enabled (software switches AND switch on side of computer now all worked). Put screen back in normal landscape orientation and rotate lock no longer worked.

Lenovo help person checked with his "experts" who say that this "very small" problem/glitch probably needs a small patch from Microsoft. (I would have thought from Lenovo but apparently not?)

Re: Auto rotation erratic on Yoga 11 after Windows 10 upgrade

I now have working auto rotation and the keyboard and touchpad are getting disabled if I switch to tent or tablet mode. Windows 10 even asks me if I want to switch to tablet mode Smiley Happy

here is what worked for me:

  • install ALL available Windows 10 updates
  • install ITE sensor firmware update
  • install Lenovo settings app for Windows 10 (don't know if that one is necessary)
  • install Harmony in compatibilty mode (Windows 8.1)

Re: Auto rotation erratic on Yoga 11 after Windows 10 upgrade

Is this for a Yoga 11? What is "ITE sensor firmware update"? I don't see that the downloads for the Yoga 11.

 

Edit: Never mind, I see that is for a Yoga 3 11.

Re: Auto rotation erratic on Yoga 11 after Windows 10 upgrade

OK, I bit the bullet and did a clean WinTen install from scratch. Installed Paper Display (working), Companion, Solution Center and Harmonyso gfar, all seem to be working. Rotate buttons working, but no actual autorotate...

 

The ITE firmware update, where did you get that? I found this one:

 

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds039684#systems

 

For the Twist S230U...is that the one you applied? Really hoping I can get this sorted, going to flip Harmony into 8.1 compat mode and see what that does in the meantime.

 

Cheers

Re: Auto rotation erratic on Yoga 11 after Windows 10 upgrade

Yaaay! Everything working correctly now, autorotate, rotation lock, keyboard and trackpad suppression as well. The FW update did the trick.
