You can use these settings to disable the keyboard in tablet mode.

Some of the users who had the similar issue have mentioned in some forums that the issue is fixed by adjusting the angle of the tablet.

The sensing is done by an orientation sensor in the base of the laptop, not in the hinges. So, to turn the keyboard back on and to go to laptop mode try tilting the whole laptop towards you slightly and check.
