How do I turn off rotation-detection in Windows 10?
I use my PC in bed a lot and sometimes I'll be using it at an angle. If I use it over a certain angle the keyboard and trackpad deactivates and the keyboard backlit starts glitching out. It's annoying. Rotation lock is on. I appreciate the ability to use my desktop environment in a portrait-mode, but I have no use for it. I also don't want to use my laptop PC as a tablet. I just want the normal laptop desktop experience, and being able to use it as such even though my device is placed over a certain angle.
How can I make this happen? Thank you.

I still need help with this.
Tablet-mode is turned off. This "feature" turned itself off after I asked here on HP-support forums two weeks ago. It turned itself on again after a restart and after that turned itself off again when I asked about it on another internet community.
After a Windows 10 update it is back again.
What is going on?
I can't see what this feature is useful for or if it is a bug. I can't find any entry for this in the settings app. Tablet-mode is turned off and rotation-lock is on.
To recap what is happening: laptop's keyboard and trackpad deactivates when the device is laying at above a certain angle and icons in taskbar get bigger space in-between them. How do I stop this?
