If I have a file with a background layer (locked) and an adjustment layer, the Straighten layer button that works with the Ruler tool is dimmed out unless I change that Background layer into a floating layer or flatten the file.

CC2014 is up to date on both my Macbook OS 10.9.4 and Dell Inspiron 15R (OS Windows 7x64)
This does not happen using CS6 or CC (can straighten the Background layer)
It does not matter if the CC 2014 version is Mac or Windows
At least one other member in the Photoshop General forum has noted this.

So I'll report this as a bug.
