Hello snapshots,
Here is what you do:
1) Click on a blank area of the desktop (not sure why, but sometimes this is necessary). 2) Press the toolbox button on your monitor. It is located in between the rotate screen button and the secondary "Esc" button. A tablet shortcut menu should appear in the middle of your screen. 3) Select "Settings" at the bottom left of the menu. This will open a "Customize Tablet Shortcut Menu Settings" Window. 4) In the "Auto Screen Rotation" portion of the window, make sure the "Enable ActiveRotate" box is checked.  5) If you choose, you may also want to click the "Calibrate" button. This will step you through customizing the ActiveRotate to your personal preference. 6) Click "Apply" and then "Ok".
Please note, that with the internal wi-fi connection enabled, you cannot use the X61 in tablet mode in certain orientations. Nothing bad will happen if you attempt to do this; but you will notice a message popup telling you this, as well as having the screen automatically switch orientations on you. This is normal and has something to do with the wi-fi antenna location.
Hope that helps!
Jeff

Auto rotate


Sometimes there is a second option called screen lock that keeps the screen from rotating even though you have auto rotate checked. Check thru your setting to see if you can find this.

Windows xp x41 migration vto x61


Have you tried just swapping the HDD into the new computer? The hardware might be similar enough for that to work.

Personally I would collect my files onto a flash drive, and start with a fresh install of the operating system on the x61. It will run much faster with a fresh install.

Problem .......x61 tablet help !!!!!!!


Hello snapshots,
I have an x61, and you may want to check that all of the keys on your keyboard are not damaged, and that none of them are stuck in the pressed position. That is what the "stuck key" message typically means. If you check out the keyboard, and all the keys are fine, and if you are still receiving this message, try calling Lenovo support. There is an off chance that your keyboard (or other components) may be slightly defective.
