ThinkPad Twist (s230u): Auto-rotate is not working properly


The laptop does not seem to be aware of the mode that the screen is in, in particular tablet mode. As a result of this, the screen lock button's function does not change from causing a 180 landscape flip to disabling/enabling auto rotate.


This apply to the model (Models 3347 and 20C4).


The solution to the auto-rotate problems is to download and install the following:


1.  New BIOS 1.61:



2.  New Power Management Driver



Hints and tips in regard to this issue can be found in Lenovo Support Site:

If you check the device management does it say that your HID-controller is offline or reporting error?
You can check it trough Lenovo own hardware check also...
