When I discovered that the keyboard was auto disabled in tablet mode without the ability to enable it I realised this must have been a big mistake from the design department because it is totally awesome if you can just fold the laptop, connect a nice 32' 4K display and use it as a keyboard.
Anyway after reading about how owners of older yoga machines got around this remarkable design flaw by using a magnet I started experimenting and luckilz also the 720 can be tricked with a good magnet.
The key is to adjust your windows power settings so that the PC does not go in standby when the lid is closed and then just fold it and place the magnet on the spot. (see picture). The pc will think its display is closed but at the same time the hardware interface will not detect a table mode lid and the keyboard is enabled

Ive gotten the keyboard to work but it appears that the mousepad is disabled when this trick is done.. do you have any sort of workaround for this? thanks for your help by the way
