    I have a Portege M700 and when I turn it into tablet mode the rotation button quits working.
    It works when it in laptop mode.

    I have the rotation utility set to go into secondary landscape and its no longer switching and the button on the front of the screen will not switch it anymore either.
    I can go into the rotation software and rotate it manually.

    Any suggestions on how to get the button functioning again?

    Oh and I am running Vista Business with SP 2.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If you rotate the whole laptop, does the screen rotate automatically using the accelerometer?

    Yes it does rotate it just wont rotate with the button once I turn it . also when I turn it to tablet mode it goes into portrait, I need it to go into secondary landscape. I made sure that the setting are set to secondary landscape and that the button is set to rotate. but it just wont. I have reinstalled the drivers for the rotation utility. any other ideas would be very helpful. thanks

    Hmm maybe you can turn off auto-rotation?

    Also try uninstalling the Toshiba Value Added Package, then reinstalling the latest TVAP from the Toshiba website.
