Yoga 500 15ISK doesn't auto rotate

My laptop does not rotate, anyone else experience this issue?

 

Windows 10 build 10586.218

BIOS Version/Date LENOVO D3CN27WW, 28/10/2015

 

  • when in laptop mode, autorotate lock is grayed out but I suppose it is a windows thing...
  • When in other modes it simply won't auto rotate.

Things that are currently set:

  • auto rotate lock is disabled
  • yoga mode control service (ymc) is running
  • "allow the screen to auto-rotate" is enabled

This issue started the last days...In random situations after restarting windows auto rotation might be ok

Just checked mine, it didn't work, but I was missing ymc.exe in Task manager... And yes, restart helped. Next time it happens check for ymc.exe in details in task manager, I'm now trying to install some older version.

No, still nothing and I am really am very dissapointed. It is probably a BIOS bug...

I confirm after following the solution from user Michvi in this thread:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-500-15ISK-Lenovo-Ltd-driver-update-fo...

 

the autorotation works as it should after putting the laptop in sleep mode and then waking it up. However on shutdown it stops and I have to put in again in sleep mode...

 

This needs to be fixed

After updating to newest BIOS D3CN32WW and tested so far everything works as it should so no need for workaround

I'd like to confirm that the BIOS update seems to mitigate the issue most of the time - haven't noticed the issue re-appear since but will report back if it does even with the new BIOS.

Re: Yoga 500 15ISK doesn't auto rotate

I have the same problem, my BIOS version is 0VCN30WWV1.14 recently updated. I had this problem before BIOS update to this version, unfortunately upgrade doesn't fix that. Any ideas what is wrong?
