So this has happened for the entirety of my use for the surface pro but has recently gotten worse. For some reason some specific actions I did caused the auto-rotate popup asking to switch to tablet mode to pop up. Recently, however, the popups became so frequent that I attempted to disable them. But by doing this I inadvertently made it worse. Now, whenever I activated auto-rotate (despite me marking the settings to never use tablet mode) I'd have no way to get out of tablet mode. disabling auto-rotate didn't work troubleshooting didn't either. Disconnecting or going to the settings itself didn't work as well. The worst part about all of this is that auto-rotate turns off whenever it pleases. Please do any of you have any suggestions because this is becoming exasperating.
