Acer PDC09 Tablet: switches into mouse mode


  • Hey I was out of the country and couldn't attend BUILD this year  :( so I pulled out my trusted old PDC'09 tablet and installed the developer preview on it. I have found that on a clean restart, touch mode works brilliantly, but if it ever sleeps/locks/etc. when it comes back its in mouse mode and the touch input doesn't work well at all. This is even when the screen has been swiveled into keyboard-less mode. Anybody else had similar experience?

  • Markti,

    Have you try to install OEM drivers for your Acer PDC09 tablet?

  • See if you have applied all of the current Windows Updates to the Windows Developer Preview.
    One of the updates may help with returning from Sleep.

  • I noticed the same behavior on my PDC09 Acer. I think that Windows has a problem detecting the tablet mode on wakeup. If I swivel the screen back to "laptop" mode and then back to "tablet" mode, that usually fixes it.
