The more I mess with these things (trying an 11s and a 13" yoga pro 2) the more I find that they are choc full o' glitches.
I really wanna like one of them but...
I use Chrome in laptop mode on both and every time I enter a text field the virtual keyboard pops up.
Yes, this would be appropriate if in tablet mode, but completely unnecessary and counterproductive in laptop mode.
Can this be disabled somehow?

This will mean that when in tablet mode, you will need to click the keyboard icon on the taskbar, when you want it.
You can also make a startup script that uses the sensor to stop and enable the service when in laptop/tablet mode. Look into ahk.

Thanks but it didn't work.
I stopped the service and set it to manual.
Then when I go into a text field within Google Chrome it resets it to automatic and opens it again.
Is this a setting in Chrome perhaps?

Right click on start button> open cmd (as Admin):
net stop TabletInputService
sc config TabletInputService start= disabled
sc config TabletInputService start= auto
net start TabletInputService

i only want to turn it off in laptop mode. would this disable virtual keyboard in tablet mode?? also, it only is happening with chrome browser.
If it's ONLY with Chrome then you have some settings messed up in Chrome.
Have you changed anything in chrome://flags ? If nothing then you might want to check you have Chrome sync turned on for all Chrome settings, extensions, bookmarks and passwords (so it recovers it all after reinstall), and then either reinstall Chrome, or if that doesn't work uninstall it completely, reboot and install it again.
But do it all while in laptop mode. Maybe you installed Chrome while in tablet mode, and Chrome got stuck with it, thinking you have a tablet without physical keyboard...

I own a Twist S230u and have the same problem in Chrome and many of the Office 2013 products (including Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook). Thus, it seems that it's not just a Chrome issue.
Don't know if I want to directly mess with the registry. I'd think there should be a user-level way to disable the virtual keyboard in laptop mode. Any other ideas?
