Thinkpad X1 Tablet 2nd Gen - Keyboard Issue

2017-10-13, 1:34 AM

Hello,

 

I just opened my brand new Thinkpad and the keyboard, if I stop using it for a little while stops working. I need to reboot the laptop in order for it to get it to work. I am really frustrated as this is a brand new and really expensive tablet/laptop (exact model: Thinkpad X1 Tablet 2nd Gen (Type 20JB, 20JC).

 

Please advise!

Try putting in slate mode position and then bring it back to laptop mode.

 

When put in TabletPC mode, the keyboard keys retract and the two plastic nubs come out next to the ESC key and the DEL key. When back in Laptop mode, both of those nubs have to be retracted for the keyboard to work.

I recommend you to update the drivers by Lenovo companion. I am a user of X1 tablet 2nd Gen and I saw so many drivers were updated and fixed the problems.
