I understand your concerns.
Please perform the below steps and check.
Tablet mode optimizes your device for touch, so you can use your notebook without a mouse or keyboard. When Tablet mode is on, apps open full-screen and desktop icons are reduced.
Tablet mode settings
In Windows, search for and open Tablet mode settings.
The Tablet mode window opens.
To choose which mode your device uses, select an option from the When I sign in drop-down menu.
Use the appropriate mode for my hardware: Enables automatic switching between desktop and tablet mode based on configuration. This is the default setting.
Use desktop mode: Prevents your device from using tablet mode in any configuration.

To choose to be notified when your notebook switches modes, select an option from the When this device automatically switches tablet mode on or off drop-down menu.
Don't ask me and always switch: Enables automatic mode switching without notification or permission. This is the default setting.
Always ask me before switching: Prevents your device from switching modes without permission.
Don't ask me and don't switch: Prevents your device from switching modes or requesting permission.

@JeppeK If you've tried the steps suggested by the previous tech and yet the issue persists, I suggest you talk to HP support and discuss your options, follow the below steps to get started:
1) Click on this link - http://www.hp.com/contacthp/
2) Click on Sign-in or select the product using the below step:
3) Enter the serial of your device.
4) Select the country from the drop-down.
5) Click on "Show Options".
Fill the web-form, to populate a case number and phone number for yourself!
Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from,

You would assume either HP or windows would implement a double-tap to wake or similar feature like most smartphones do. This would be common sense seeing as otherwise you have to either set the screen to never sleep, which wastes battery, or switch to desktop mode which is just long and annoying for something so simple. Surely there must be some way of enabling something like this?
