    Do you have a program from Dell installed which will rotate it despite the feature being disabled in the Settings?

    For anybody else looking for an answer, note that this is a laptop/tablet so screen rotation is normal behavior. The laptop might possibly believe that it is upside down when it is closed but you do have the feature disabled which is wierd.
