    My Yoga 2 Pro still doesn't prompt tablet mode when I fold it. The setting is enabled though and I can do it manually, however the whole idea of (PC side) continuum is not working properly.

    It must not be detecting that the keyboard dock is, indeed, a keyboard. I wonder if there is a registry key for it.

    Have you tried the simple expedient of tapping "Tablet Mode" in Action Center?

    I know it is supposed to be automagical, but this could be a workaround.

    That works, the thing is as you said it should do it automatically. The feature's name is Continuum not "tablet mode" it should work as it's name suggests.

    aaaannnddd Hopefully Microsoft is pushing a patch soon. Check your Updates.

    Could be worse, many are having their upgrade stall out.

    Great Good Luck on a speedy patch, guys.

    Maybe it can't detect that the keyboard is folded and only gives a prompt when the keyboard is removed?

    Would imagine it will need some sort of driver update from the manufacturer to do it - I would imagine the device has to create the right flag for Windows to know it is a hardware removal that warrants the conversion (as opposed to say unplugging a usb keyboard).

    Folding the device disables the keyboard and trackpad so the OS is aware of the fold action. Also it has been said that Continuum will work with 2-in-1s so it should work with both detachable and foldable ones.

    Please forgive me if you've already checked this, but are you sure it's set to switch automatically in the settings?
    Settings -> System -> Tablet Mode

    Hope you don't take it rudely. I had accidentally put it on "Don't ask and Don't Switch" originally. When I double checked, it was on the wrong one. I only ask because the wrong one and right one are phrased similarly.

    It is on, ask before switching and I'll change it to switch without asking when it works properly, but thanks for your comment.

    Idk man, but on my SP3, it turns to tablet mode when I fold my keyboard. But doing that is not very reliable tbh

    Microsoft had stated in one of the videos where Continuum was discussed that it would require new drivers from manufacturers. The driver has to communicate to the OS that the change has been made. Not sure why, but it's what Microsoft stated.

    Check with your hardware manufacturer for updated drivers. I'm still waiting on Lenovo to deliver a new driver for my 2-in-1 laptop, but they do have a number of beta drivers for other models posted already.

    My surface 2pro i5 has continuum running fine, it's not 100% flawless but it's forgivable (80+%), it is early point of release should get better!

    I have a Yoga Pro 2. It doesn't work for me either, but you can get it to work if you install the Lenovo Transition driver. However Lenovo did not release a Windows 10 version of it and it is specifically listed as not supported, but it does seem to work. Lenovo said to uninstall it. Hopefully, they are working on it. I am not sure if installing the Windows 8.1 version of it will cause other problems.

    Note: I did not install it on the released version of Window 10. I did install it on the preview versions and it did work. I assume it still would, but I didn't try it. I was hoping Lenovo was going to release something.

    Huh, I've had Lenovo Transition in the background the entire time and it hasn't complained yet on 10.
