X230 Tablet - display won't rotate automatically

Hello Community,

so I recently installed Windows 8 on my X230 Tablet.

Everything works fine so far besides my display wont rotate automatically.
The rotate-key right under the screen works fine and I have used the Lenovo System Update to get all necessary drivers but the display still does not rotate automatically.

Is there a setting that I am not finding or any software/driver that I have to install?

I solved that problem by installing the Win 7 driver "Tablet Shortcut Menu". The UI for that program doesn't work but at least auto screen rotation works perfectly. Smiley Happy

 

Hope it helped.

How do you turn automatic rotation on when the UI does not work?

once the program is installed the rotation works automatically.

have you installed all drivers under "mouse and keyboards"?

system update (win 8) does not always find all drivers which you need.

How are you calibrating activerotate without the UI?

Yes it works, but I have no way to calibrate it so the screen rotation is not occuring in a natural manner.
