First of all I want to say “Hi” to all of you! This board is really a great place to learn about the Surface-world and after all the reading over the last year I´ve decided to chip in after I bought my Surface 2 yesterday. I´ve let out the first generation (I´m still impressed I was able to do that…) and what I can say after one day of heavy use is that I am very IMPRESSED. Great device and finally MS was able to put it out right away also in Austria… Despite all the positive experiences I came across some (hopefully) minor problem. Hope you guys can help me: (Note: I haven´t changed any of the power saving settings, screen brightness is still balanced maybe there is room for improvement with some little changes???) 1. How long does your Surface 2 Charge? After the unboxing mine was done in approximately one hour. I unplugged it right after it hit 100% and then I used it for more or less 5-6 hours. Was a bit disappointing because I heard about at least 10 hours. I was watching 2 hours nba league pass and the rest of the time multitasking with videos and music. My second loading circle was about 2 hours (I left it plugged in for a few additional hours) Is your loading circle also that short? I thought the Surface would take a lot longer to load… 2. Battery power is pretty fast going down. After a few minutes of typing (just typing) already 5% are gone… 3. When you done charging, is there also the purple light still on (on the charger)? I thought the light should go off after the device is done loading. (It´s this way with all my other electronica…) 4. Do you guys also experience a quite loud sound (piep) and a little vibration when hitting the windows button? If yes – how can I turn that off? Sorry for the long text. I wanted to cover everything. I had a big issue with the battery life before (with a Sony Vaio), so I´m a bit paranoid when it comes to shorter running time than expected… Hope you guys can give me some tips! THANKS!
