Setting the PIN when using ThinkBook in landscape causes screen problems. The PIN entry keyboard comes up in portrait orientation and does not restore the landscape orientation when closed.

    You know, I haven't been able to reproduce this. This doesn't happen all the time right?

    I'm using a 1st generation iPad running iOS 5.1.1. Maybe it's something to do with the older hardware/software?

    Yes, I just saw it too, can't believe I missed it earlier. My apologies.
