Hi there, Offiroz -  


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


I also have a Lenovo Yoga 500 running Windows 10 and have had the same problem as many others with the keyboard and touchpad suddenly stop working. I have done a system reset, updated the BIOS and even run a Lenovo system update, all only giving a temporary fix. In the last few days I have narrowed it down to a 'glitch' in the screen rotation changes, even though tent or tablet mode are hardly ever used. This is what I have found and currently have to do on each start up.


Power up the machine in laptop mode, flip over to tent mode and let the screen rotate and settle for a few seconds. Flip back over to desktop mode, watch the screen rotate back and hey presto the touchpad, mouse and keyboard are working again! Sometimes only angling the the screen forward a few degrees will do it, without going to tent mode first.


Update us how it goes.
