    Hi! I have had issues with thi on the current device and also the previous one that i returned to Microsoft. It seems to happen especially when i put my Surface to sleep by closing my type cover. When pressing the power button before closing the issue almost never occurs.

    Anyone experiencing the same? Is it something wrong with my device, or is it a common issue that has to do with firmware?

    Known bug, when you wake it up and the screen is black do a windows key + p a couple times and normally it turns back on.

    I've found that ctrl+alt+del also wakes the screen up but I've only had to do that once, thus not sure if it will work all the time.
