I have a ThinkPad laptop, and whenever I press Alt + Left arrow, my screen rotates to the left. How do I stop this annoying behavior?

According to an answer on this post on TabletPCReview.com:

Do a CTL + ALT + F12.

This will bring up the Intel control panel. Goto 'Hot Keys' tab and uncheck the box 'Enable Hot Keys'.

The "Hot Keys" tab is under "Options and Support" (thanks to ripper234).

However, a further post indicates that there are other keys that rotate the screen that don't get disabled by this method.
