Is anyone else out there have problems with Auto Rotate on their Yoga 13? When I change the orientation of the Yoga to tent mode or fold it into tablet mode and hold it in portrait position the screen doesn't change. I've checked the hardware button to make sure that is not the issue. It will rotate once in a while but it is very unpredictable and tends to switch right back to normal rotation.

Bumping this back up as I'm having this problem too. Anyone find a solution?
I LOVE this laptop when it works properly. But between the rotation and other occasional glitches (last night the keyboard/touchpad stopped working until I closed/reopened the lid), it's frustrating.

On my Yoga 13, the automatic screen rotation has stopped responding. (It seemed consistent before, but I hadn't used tablet mode much.) I reinstalled the Intel video drivers, no help. "Simple Device Orientation Sensor" does show up as working in Device Manager.
Anyone else seen this issue? And hopefully found a fix?
I saw an earlier post on this, but the person who had the problem never posted again, and the only response was from someone who solved it by doing a fresh Windows install and then had other problems.
I don't want to do a fresh Windows install as it looks like some of the Lenovo utilities and apps (such as Transition, Companion, Motion Control) aren't available in the drivers folder.

Thanks, I do have Lenovo Transition installed.
I downloaded ALS Control, but it extracts to a .exe file that doesn't actually seem to do anything when executed. Can you please elaborate on what you mean by installing it? Thank you.

Okay, the problem is intermittent. When it happens, the screen shifts from the current orientation (it's been landscape shifting to Portrait when it happens) and then it won't respond anymore. So it seems like a driver/service is stopping working.
