Enable keyboard in tablet mode with external monitor

2018-08-23, 17:16 PM

Hi everyone,

 

I have an external monitor hooked to my Yoga 730. I use the external monitor only, and would like to be able to use the Yoga's keyboard when in tablet mode like in the picture below. Some people have suggested using a magnet to disable some sensor, like here, but I would like a software solution. 

 

Has anyone succeded? 

 

Thanks!

Hi thisisatest,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Have you already tried changing configuration within WIndows tablet mode settings as directed here and here

 

The are also applications that you can disable at start up that can also help control switching mode. Specific to the drivers, Energy Manager Driver with Yoga Mode Control for Windows 10 is the ones responsible for the software side.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards

Sorry for necro-ing, but you can end the Yoga Mode Control service in task manager. It works.

Sorry about the necro. I'm leaving this here in case it helps somebody, as I wasted hours until I got it to work. Disabling YMC, or any Lenovo services for that matter, did not work for me (I have a Yoga C940-15). What did the trick was disabling Intel Integrated Sensor Solution in Device manager (under System Devices).

Hello, thanks for your comment. I have the same problem but can't find the Intel driver you talk about. Any idea what else it might be called (I have a Yoga 710 14 inch). Thank you.
