Yoga 13 - On-screen Keyboard Randomly Popping Up When Using Physical Keyboard?

2013-01-16, 19:12 PM

While in laptop mode, and typing on the built-in physical keyboard or a keyboard attached via USB, the on-screen keyboard will randomly pop up, taking away focus (particularly noticeable when using extended desktop on an external display) and eating up half of the screen real estate.  As soon as I press the next key on the physical board, the on-screen keyboard minimizes itself.  Sometimes it will pop up when I'm not even touching the laptop!

 

Anyone else experience this and/or know how to stop it?  It's the only thing about this machine that drives me absolutely nuts.  It seems to be random.  I can't pin it down and haven't found any similar reports via Google search.

 

Thanks in advance.

Mine is doing the same thing and your post is the only thing I can find on the interwebs. Hmmm. I feel like I'm overlooking some feature that the cameral is involved with. I can't quite figure the trigger. It's almost like when I take my hands away from the keyboard or something.

Hi all,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. Based from what I've read over here you may want ot consider recalibrating your touch screen inputs and key board settings. 

 

What I suggest here is to go the "Control Panel" > "Tablet PC settings" > "Other" Menu tab. You sgould be able to adjust it from there.

 

 On another note you can try to adjust "OnScreen Keyboard (Lenovo Transition)" in the control Panel.

 

Do let me me know how oit goes.

 

Regards

Thanks for the quick response!  I'll give that a shot and report back tomorrow after some testing.

Disabling "OnScreen Keyboard (Lenovo Transition)" stopped it.  The solution is good enough for me, as I don't need the keyboard to pop up on its own anyway.  It'll pop up when I tap in a text-entry box, and that's all that matters.

 

Attempts to calibrate the screen were unsucecssful.  I can't say whether or not a screen calibration will stop the random pop-up issue because every time I calibrated the screen, it broke the right-side screen swipe that reveals the Charms Menu.  Resetting the screen calibration was the only way I could find to restore the right-side swipe function. This is quite unfortunate because, regardless of the fact that it broke my Charms swipe, my touchpoints were FAR more accurate after the calibration than before.

 

So now I have another problem.  I can't calibrate my screen for optimum accuracy without losing the convenience of the right-side swipe.  :)  

 

Any ideas?

Hi Connectology,

 

Wow, That was really unexpected. I'll need to check on that one for you. Please do give me a few days to check on these to confirm. Will post more once I can shed some more light on this.

 

Regards

Just registered in order to post about this too, and found this topic!

 

I'm having the same problem, and running the calibration tool also caused my WIndows charms menu to disappear. Interestingly enough it removes the charms menu from both the touchscreen and the touchpad.  Resetting the calibration restored the ability to get to the charms menu. 

 

For now I guess I too will just disable the onscreen keyboard popping up automatically via the Onscreen Keyboard (Lenovo Transition) option of the Control Panel. 

 

Thank you for looking into this, NINE!

After attempting to play with the tablet settings I read on a windows forum that there were updates just recently applied that I believe fix the keyboard popup/disappear issue.
