    My Yoga 2 Pro is no better than the day I installed Windows 10 (July 31). Usually after the machine wakes from sleep I have no screen rotation. Takes a complete reboot to get it working again. No Lenovo updates for this (and other) post-Windows 10 update issues for this machine.

    I just updated to 10565 and my rotation woes came back. I use an external monitor and I like to keep it closed. When laptop is open the laptop display is upside down and my external monitor is normal. When it is closed my exterranl display goes upside down. If I get it back to normal once I click something it goes upside down again.....

    Rotation Grayed Out Button SOLVED

    I am using a surface pro tablet and encountered the same issue. To fix it I opened the settings for Display and while open rotated the tablet. This made the grayed out screen lock become active and I was then able to set it to unlocked.
    THANK YOU for this solution! It WORKED!

    I had to move my SLOWLY 2-In-1 slowly for the "Lock Rotation of this Display" button to become enabled. Once it became enabled (blue), I was able to select it OFF and the problem was solved!

    It appears that the function of this switch is relative to the mode currently in use on my 2-In-1. In other words, when used as a laptop, the lock rotation is ON. When used in tent mode, the screen is also ON, so I had to put my computer in tent mode (slowly, to make the switch on the screen turn from gray to blue), THEN switch the lock rotation to OFF.

    In researching the solution to this problem, I found several solutions that required editing the registry via regedit. My Vulcan senses told me that was not logical, total BS. Why should I need to edit the registry on a 3-day old laptop?! This did not make sense to me. The solution offered by Taltney not only makes sense; for me it worked. I would be highly suspicious of any solution that required a registry edit on a new computer.

    Again, THANK YOU Taltney for your easy solution to a common problem.

    Live long and prosper.
