x220 active rotate, "display cannot switch to secondary landscape in this configuration"

 

With Active Rotate enabled and kid of working, trying to hold the tablet in slate mode with battery facing up, TSMResient.exe will report that "cannot switch to secondary landscape in this configuration" with a message box.

 

All other orienations work. What is strange is, you can force it to switch to secondary landscape by using the Change Orientation button near the LED lights and there is absolutely no problem. Using windows control panel to change orientation works too without error messages.

 

Searching for this error message will show many results in google, most reported in 2009 so this is an old bug. But there is no solutions as far as I can see. What gives Lenovo? Please help.

I had this problem for a day or two and it magically fixed itself. Wish I knew what did it so I could fix it if it ever happened again...

I use the manual rotation because I had the same problem... Plus it's really not responding well.

Well it responds well for me. But you need to calibrate it by lying the screen *in slate mode* compeltely flat in the options page where you enable the feature using the calibration button,
