I've come to just about my wits end with the Yoga 2 Pro transitions. The sensors are just far too touchy for my liking.
For example, If I lean forward at all with it or lay the screen flat, the keyboard and touchpad disables and/or the screen rotates 180 degrees because it thinks I'm in a different mode. Sometimes I lay on my side and rotate the computer 90 degrees with me and the screen rotates, which is not what I want.
I am having extreme difficulty discovering where to disable the rotation and keyboard/mouse disabling. Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can find the option to either alter this feature to my liking or shut it off completely?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Alright, still an issue.
I have two things listed in my device manager under sensors:
Simple Device Orientation Sensor
HID Sensor Collection
Disable the simple device orientation sensor, I can't really tell a huge difference. Perhaps it was the accelerometer. But the keyboard disable still happens when I tilt the laptop screen and the screen rotation still happens when it shouldn't.
Disabling the HID sensor collection gets me most of the way to where I want. The screen no longer rotates. The keyboard works at first. But when I put it into, say tablet mode, the keyboard gets disabled. Then when I take it out of tablet mode into laptop mode, the keyboard stays disabled and I can't use it. So this is obviously not ideal.
Any solutions? I'd really like to just turn off automatic screen rotation and turn off the feature that automatically disables the keyboard.

I'm also new to the YP2 & feel your pain with some of these quirks although, I do love this device! On the right side of the YP2, in front of where the usb 2.0 port is, there's a switch that enables/disables the screen rotation.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, that button seems to only work if the laptop is in tablet mode. I did try it and it didn't seem to have any effect in regular mode (there's not even any indication that something is happening).
After months of dealing with this, I think I found a solution though:
I disabled the Simple Orientation Sensor under sensors in the Device Manager. And I also disabled Transition.exe in the startup programs. Rebooting and it seems that the screen orientation only changes if put into tablet mode and keyboard and mouse remain functional in all orientations except tablet. The disabling of the driver and program seems to make the transitions depend entirely on the bend of the screen and not the orientation of the device, which is exactly what I want.
Hope that helps others as well!
