Thinkpad X1 Yoga - how to wake up tablet mode when screen goes dark

2018-12-15, 20:07 PM

I just got my Thinkpad X1 Yoga and here's the question: how do i turn on the screen when it's in tablet mode without folding it back to the laptop mode and hitting any keys? I thought it's like an iPad just by clicking the power button but it doesn't seem to work. Now I've been folding it to the laptop style and enter any key to wake up the screen but how do just wake it up as a tablet?? 

Thanks!

Solved! See the solution

It should work with the power button, but it seems like it requires a relatively long press, like half a second.

But can you login once the screen comes back on?  That's my problem.  No way to bring up the virtual keyboard without flipping it back to Laptop mode.

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and a login screen appears.  Sometimes it asks for fingerprint so I swipe up again and it presents a digit entry field with keypad (because my alternate login is a numeric code.)  Other times it simply presents the entry field.  The difference might be awakening from hibernation versus a full power up.
