    Hi,

    I don't know whether this is a bug or a feature, but I cannot setup automatic tablet mode.

    1. Detach SP3 from anything, turn on the Tablet Mode
    2. Attach SP3 to some external monitor, Windows will exit the Table Mode, fine.
    3. Detach SP3 from external monitor - Windows is not entering Tablet Mode again.

    Does it happen to anyone else?

    Have you looked here to see what your options are set to? The fact that you detached the keyboard and then turned on tablet mode indicates to me that it is set not to change automatically, hence why it didn't turn on when you unplugged the monitor. For reference, no matter what your setting, if you plug in a second display tablet mode will deactivate because tablet mode does not support additional monitors, other than in a "duplicate" capacity.

    Hm, I've set it to "don't ask and always switch" and now it's working. Really strange. Thanks!
