Re: Yoga - Keyboard/Touchpad Disabled

2013-01-24, 3:01 AM

Mine has started doing this from time to time.  Sometimes not for days, other times often.

 

I do not believe this is a hardware issue personally.  I dont know for sure, but I am not convinced it is.

 

I believe that the same process that happens when 'tablet mode' is enabled is taking place whilst the laptop is in regular laptop mode.  You can actually see the red 'x' appear on the icon in the Windows notification area when it happens.  A USB mouse still works OK.

 

I have not had this issue for a while, and I also havent rebooted my laptop for a while either.  This morning I closed everything down (it was getting a bit clogged up with 103 internet tabs, 30 photoshop documents plus a hell of a lot of other things going on), and the keyboard/trackpad issue happened twice upon rebooting. The laptop had not been moved at all during this time.  I rebooted gain and it has now been fine since.

 

Hopefully there is some software glitch causing this, but it definitely needs to be sorted out as a priority as it makes for a huge inconvenience, espeially if using the laptop for work.

As predicted this is NOT a hardware issue at all.

 

It is an issue with a Lenovo service which is meant to control the 'mode' of the laptop/tablet.

 

The service is called 'ymc' and I have disabled it completely with no other effects other than this ridiculously annoying problem going away!!

 

I have seen another post here which shows you howto set up a quick enable/disable for this service, however I don't actually know why it would need to be enabled.  maybe I am missing something but the laptop works perfectly with the service disabled full time!

here's the solution I came up with (makes it so you can leave ymc on and disable it quickly if the bug occurs):

I think I have discovered the issue: pressing the hotkey F6 actually disables the touchpad. It's very easy to accidentally push, since you don't even need to push Fn or Alt or Ctrl for it to work. Just push it again and the touchpad will resume function. I think I'll disable that particular hotkey since it has caused me so many issues. I hope this helps!
