well after having my new Yoga 900 for a few days, I turned it off for the first time tonight. Afterwards the auto rotation feature was gone. No more option in the display settings and the registry keys for auto rotation were set to 0. The HID Sensors in the device manager are installed properly.
I tried reinstalling Windows 10 and it worked, but after rebooting once more, it stopped working again.
I have read that there are many people with this problem, maybe somebody has found a solution?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Resolved the issue: I used o&o 12 to keep my privacy to myself adding all recommended and partly recommended changes to windows 10. Well, that one prohibited the Sensor monitoring service to start. Reverting the changes and starting the services solved my problem.
I hope it helps somebody!

It was really a self-induced problem. I used a program called o&o12 that rendered the internal windows service called sensor monitoring service to be inactive.
I don't exactly what you're problem is, but you have to check that the following services are running:
Sensor Data Service
Sensor Monitoring Service
(check in the services window)

If anyone is having a similar problem and the solution given doesn't fix it, I found the Lenovo bundled graphics drivers were causing black screen issues as well as these autorotate fails. Manually installing the Intel ones via device manager solved the problem for me. Hope that helps.

Thanks so much for that, much appreciated.
In fact, I managed to find a solution before you responded. Thought I'd describe it here in case anyone else comes across this thread when investigating the same problem:
I did 2 things then re-started the computer and the problem seems completely resolved (all buttons relating to Rotaton Lock have reappeared and are not greyed out when in Tablet Mode). Annoyingly I don't know which of these 2 was the solution:
- installed most uptodate Lenovo Transition driver from Lenovo website (as discussed in this thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-13-Auto-Rotate/td-p/913997)
- went to Settings -> Privacy -> Location and turned Location 'on' (as suggested in a thread in another forum that I annoyingly cannot re-find now...)
Hope that (and/or Matt and getdrunk's suggestions) might help someone facing the same problem....
