    My keyboard was having issues loosing connection and mouse control. I noticed my keyboard was not fitting flush against the bottom of the sp3. I pulled the keyboard and looked in the recessed area and found some metal fragments stuck in this recessed area. I am not sure where they came from but they caused some frustration.

    I've had that happen a couple of time when I brought my tablet into work and the metal shards got stuck... just remove them and go on as if nothing happened... ;)

    I program and run a CNC machine where I work, and the fine shavings and metal dust there has ruined 3 perfectly good cellphones for me. Seems the speaker magnets attract fine metal dust and shavings, and it's very difficult to remove without disassembly or a lot of air blast, which ruins the thin membrane. My SP1 will never see the inside of a metal shop.......
