Yoga Keyboard and touch pad stop working...

I just received my new Yoga and have noticed a very annoying glitch.  The keyboard and touchpad stop working and the only way to get them back is by closing the lid and opening it again.  It seems to do it when I use the touchscreen while in the "laptop" position.   Any suggestions?  I am curious if it is a defect or if I am turning them off some how.

 

Help!

This happened to me last night, in fact. But after shutting down and restarting, it hasn't happened again so far.

Thanks, Andy. What does the YMC service do?

How do I do this?

 

Has anyone confirmed if this fixes the keyboard/touchpad problem?

Yoga 13 Keyboard / Touchpad become unresponsive

Has anyone ever had their keyboard and touchpad randomly become unresponsive?  I've had the machine for two days now without issue.  In the last hour though this has happened three times.  Putting the machine to sleep using the power button and waking it back up brings them back to life.  Is this a driver issue, or?  When this happens the touchscreen still operates normally.

Yes, this has been reported in a number of topics here. I had it happening, as well as rotation failing. Haven't seen a solution.

It is really strange- those few times that night were the only time that it ever happened.  I've not had any issues like that since.  No differences either same workloads, no driver changes etc.  Fluke I hope?  *knocks on wood*

I've noticed the trackpad become (briefly) unreponsive just twice... Once was when I was running the hotfix to repartition the drives.  Perhaps the trackpad becomes unresponsive when the disk and/or CPU are extremely busy?
