    Another happy user here, works great thanks. Thanks!

    But how cool would it be if the hardware screen rotate button could enable and disable the automatic rotation eh?

    dont suppose anyone figured out how to automatically enable/disable the rotate when going from slate>pc and vice versa? Kinda like how the touchpad disables itself when its put into slate

    Been gone quite a while from this forum. Getting my TM2 all fixed up again. Long story. Anywho, I installed this and it works brilliantly except for the fact that at rotation from landscape to portrait and back again, the landscape size remains for any windows (Chrome, in this instance). Is there a workaround for this? Thanks in advance for your help, and Kudos to CompuGeek!

    Thanks to CompuGeek for providing such a tool!

    I found that the files hosted at the Computer Geek Software site are not available anymore. Does anyone have a copy of the sensor driver made by CompuGeek (tm2 accelerometer (x64).exe or tm2 accelerometer (x86).exe) and can share it?

    Sorry all, I lost a lot of data in a hard drive crash recently. That included most of my computer backups and all of my old projects (most pre-VS2010). I guess that's what I get for using a five drive RAID 0 for a storage server without a proper backup system in place. One drive has a problem and the next thing I know I'm up the river without a paddle.

    That and shortly after, my host changed without my knowledge so I lost a lot of my site data. I was able to find a backup of the tm2 accelerometer tray app but not the sensor. So I have fixed the links for the tray app version. However if someone still has a copy of the sensor, please put up a mirror. I can then download and restore it to my site.

    Edit: A friend of mine had the auto-rotate program but not the ProtectSmartSensor programs, but that just leaves the "ProtectSmartSensor (64-bit).exe" and "ProtectSmartSensor (32-bit).exe". As I said before, if anyone still has a copy of either (or both) program(s), please create a mirror.

    Has anyone tested this in Windows 8. I am afraid to try since I am getting tired of bricking my windows 8 install over and over again playing around with different things.

    Yes, the regular (non Windows Sensor) program works just fine on Windows 8. Just make sure you have the the latest version of HP's ProtectSmart sensor driver installed.

    You will have to enable the .NET framework and install the Visual C++ framework linked to in the first post.
