Re: Yoga 13, keyboard not turning off until almost fully folded

2012-12-15, 16:01 PM

I have been troubleshooting this problem this morning. By uninstalling a camera update that was installed by windows automatic updates it fixes my problem, as of now anyway. I hope it continues to work properly.

Well that fix was short lived. Back to the same issue of the keyboard not being disabled until almost fully folded.

Re: Yoga 13, keyboard not turning off until almost fully folded

I have noticed this issue intermittently the past few weeks that I have had a Yoga. Sometimes I find that simply folding/unfolding the display will properly disable or re-enable the keyboard and touchpad. Also, often simply closing the lid and waiting for the machine to go into sleep mode and the resuming resolves the issue. (Or as other users have mentioned - restarting also works, which is at least quite fast on the Yoga - 10 seconds. : )

 

I haven't been able to pin-point exact steps to reproduce, but I have become accustomed to first double-checking that the touchpad is actually disabled when I fold the keyboard backwards. Most of the time I would say the behavior functions correctly, but every now and then the touchpad and keyboard stay enabled when folded behind.

 

Perhaps a future driver update may improve the reliability of correctly disabling/enabling the keyboard and touchpad.

This problem has permanently disappeared for me, I guess after windows updates and some reboots needed after the updates. No Lenovo driver downloads.

Re: Yoga 13, keyboard not turning off until almost fully folded

Hi all 

 

Thanks for posting your concerns. After reading through this thread I'd like to dive a bit deeper on the issue. Now based from what has been posted here, it does appear that this is happening right ouf of the box. But is there anyone here facing issues after installing some updates or software? 

 

After reading on further into the thread some have reported that this issue has eliminated itself after doing a WIN8 update on the machine. To those affected could you update your windows and let me know of the changes. If the problem still persist I'd like the teams to take a look further into this issues.

 

To those that have update the Win8 update and have rectified the issue, could you let us know what are the updates you made to rectify the issues.

 

Do let me know

 

Regards

I am up to date with all Windows 8 updates, and I am still having the problem.  The problem is very sporadic; sometimes it works with no issues, sometimes it doesn't.  I suspect most people claiming that it's fixed have just jumped the gun, and their problem will return...

 

The easiest way to fix it is to put the computer to sleep and wake it back up; pressing the power button will work if you have that set for sleep, instead of having to close the lid.  You can monitor whether or not the keyboard disabler is working correctly by looking at the notification tray area; the Synaptics Pointing Device icon will have a red "X" whenever the keyboard/touchpad are disabled.  It should disable just past 180 deg when it's working correctly.

 

Nine, it'd be great if you could have this problem looked into, I suspect it's much more widespread than these boards lead to believe.

No, the problem absolutely didnt return after my windows update quite a while ago. The windows update was a quite violent process for me, taking several reboots that at first gave black screens with orange flares at left edge. We probably dont share the same version of windows because three of the four big apps i installed caused dire screen or shutdown problems which triggered windows to attempt to automatically reconfigure in order to heal.

I am having this problem as well.  The keyboard/touchpad does not turn off in stand mode.  It does turn off in tablet mode, and some amount of degrees close to it, but even when you put it in tablet mode, then to stand mode the keyboard/touchpad comes back on.  I checked the Windows Updates, and it says that there are none availible.  This problem did happen right out of the box (about a week ago), but when I updated Windows it went away.  It has since come back a few days ago.
