Active Rotate

2008-01-14, 7:09 AM
I have done a fresh installation of Vista, and now my Activerotate option is greyed out. I have done searches here and on the net, but there ultimately, isnt any explaination on how to fix this. Any help?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I had the same problem, it was not working correctly till I had installed Lenovo packages including:
- Multitouch driver,
- Active Protection System,
- surprise surprise - Access Connections,

I would like to know why Lenovo did some dependencies between drivers and also why they are not documented?

Basically, I would recommend running system update and be sure that all above modules as well other that might be directly related to hardware are installed.
Should it still fail, reinstall some of them by hand. Some of the drivers installed by the System Update are not installed correclty first time...

Good luck

I have ActiveRotate enabled and no Access Connections (I've sworn it off :) )

I do have the MultiTouch driver installed and APS, but I would doubt that APS is required. Did you reboot between installs?

AFAIK APS is a must. ActiveRotate relys on information from it's movement sensors.

active protection was the key. Thanks so much for the help. I am going to pass this info on.

Nice to hear Active Protection System helped you. Could you perform one more test if you still had not installed Active Connections? Try rotating the screen through all positions, rotating it 90 degrees at once, so go 0, 90, 180, 270, 360, 0, then do other direction - 0, 270,180, 90, 0, 270. Without active connection it was not allowing going through 270 deg automatically, how it is behaving on your PC?

It was like that on X61 and X60 which I had tested around 2 months ago, lets see how it is now.

Good luck,
Wojciech
