Yoga keyboard doesn't turn back on after tablet mode

2012-10-29, 21:18 PM

So, got my Yoga yesterday. After repartitioning the hard drive (what is Lenovo thinking?) and restoring from my USB recovery disk, I have a nicely working computer.


Except for one slightly annoying thing. When I flip the screen over into tablet mode the keyboard becomes disabled (perfect). When I flip the screen back over into the normal laptop position the keyboard remains disabled (ugh!!!). The only solution I have at the moment is to close the laptop and reopen it. The keyboard works again but I have to relog into Windows.


Running Windows 8. Only things I did other then changing the drive partitions is remove some unwanted default software that was installed.

I have the same issue. I did not repartition anything. If I wake up the computer in tables mode, I need to put it to sleep as a laptop and wake it up as a laptop for the keyboard to work.....

Re: Yoga keyboard doesn't turn back on after tablet mode

Just purchased an "open box" Yoga 920 today (that appears to have been purchased over one year ago...). Keyboard does not function after tablet mode, and on-screen keyboard is not invoked by text fields in tablet mode. As was the case in 2012, keyboard function is restored after closing laptop. I could almost live with that if the on-screen keyboard worked in tablet mode. Any suggestions or links to updated drivers would be much appreciated.
