Hope someone can help. Got a new x201 Tablet model 2985 with Windows 7 on it. Simple Tap worked find the first day I got it, now today (2nd day) it doesn't work at all. I did all the software/firmware upgrades from the Lenovo site and I think that might have caused a problem.
Simple Tap ver 1.0.0010
I've tried uninstall/install.
I've tried launching it from the toolbox
I've tried launching it from \program files\Lenovo\Simple Tap
It just sits there and does nothing. I can double-tap all day long and nothing. Not even an error message.
Perhaps the bios upgrade killed it? I can do an uninstall again, but I fear maybe registry entries aren't cleared so the same problem re-manifests after a subsequent installation

I spent a lot of time on it today. Clearing registry entries, etc. I'm now convinced an upgrade from either Windows 7 Pro or ThinkAdvantage killed the app. I would need to restore the system to factory settings, then load each upgrade one by one, which I'm really not willing to do at this point.
Let's hope the test engineering dept. comes across this issue soon and fixes it!!
Dang, I really want to use that app too. :

I have the same problem. See post from over 2 weeks ago with no response...
I have installed Simpletap successfully on my lenovo 201 tablet, and the red button and double tap features were both working fine. Then, I docked my machine and the features went away. I tried to uninstall and reinstall but the same problem continued.
When I click the simpletap.exe shortcut it shows that the process is running in my task manager, but I do not have the options I had before. Like I mentioned I tried to reinstall already and repair the app but it did not help.
Does anyone know how I could fix this?

Well, since this is a new laptop, I bit the bullet and did a factory restore, then systematically re-installed everything (windows updates, all my apps, etc), except for any Lenovo updates.
So far Simpletap is still working. I am running the 1.17 BIOS driver update though. Looks like the factory restore only restores the hard drive, which makes sense. This is good because it fixes an issue that limited the 8cell battery from fully charging!
It would be nice if the Lenovo Product Managers would monitor this forum from time to time and provide input to issues posted. I see quite a few posts that have zero replies. Very discouraging.

Looks like they have a new version out as of 8-24-10. You might want to try that. Mine has been working fine since l reinstalled the whole factory s/w.

I have not used the simple tap for a longer time until yesterday I began to use it again. It worked well last day. But the second day, today, it always stops working. I do not know what happied. I like the new version of the simple tap. The buttons on it look like a iphone and windows 8.
