I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing some of the below issues, how long you may have been experiencing them and if you've found a fix and would like to share it, haha:
An important post-script to note: a lot of people are complaining of the above issues and are also experiencing a rotation-locked screen that is unresponsive to any tinkering! I am not one of those people. The "accelerometer", if that even is it's real name!, seems to work perfectly fine.
Please hit me up with any relevant responses as soon as possible, I will try to respond and weigh in with my further investigations.
Solved! Go to Solution.

In Desktop Mode, the virtual keyboard will never appear automatically. To show the keyboard, click the keyboard icon in the system tray or task bar.

The "when this device automatically switches tablet mode on/off" setting is and always has been set to "always ask me before switching". However, I do not recieve any prompts upon folding the laptop into the tablet mode.
Also, in regards to the touch keyboard, I was referring to whilst already being in tablet mode.
I appreciate the suggestions but I've already covered those bases, thank you regardless though, man.
Bit off-topic but how do I unselect a post in the thread as a solution? update: worked it out, lol.

Have you tried reinstalling the Lenovo Mode Control driver?

I am mystified! Why would the laptop all-of-a-sudden require the driver after working for months perfectly fine without it.
This is really unusual and a little terrifying, I don't know what I'd do if something similar like this happens again. :/
Regardless though, the bottom line is... That worked! Thank you for the suggestion, my friend.

Always glad to help .
The driver was released late January, so it's possible the system had a pre-release, or Windows did something funny with a system update.

I'm having the same issue, but installing, deinstalling, and reinstalling the Mode Control Driver does not solve unfortunately. The driver seems to be running, at least that's what Task Manager says. And since Win 10 switches to tablet mode when I fold it back I assume that the hardware is working (however the Yoga detects that it is folded back). I have this problem for 4 weeks now and it is starting to really get on my nerves. Any suggestions are really appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately that didn't help me. even when I just move the tablet sideways when lying flat on a table it activates and askes if I want to rotate or exit tablet mode.
