Hello. Like many of you, I have the update from hell on my SP2 and suffer the same rapid battery drain issue that's splattered on various online forums. It's not uncommon to pull my SP2 out of my bag with the cooling fans going full ball and the device feeling hot. Apparently there's an issue with drivers for the 'USB' touch keyboard. I often find, after shutting the SP2 down, that it will restart itself (I don't know why). I charge the tablet at night after shutting it down (yes, not sleep or hibernation), it's not uncommon to get up in the morning and find the machine on. I'm already starting to see gradual decline in the battery full charge as reported by the powercfg /batteryreport. Like many, I'm waiting for our friends at Redmund to release the much awaited update for what is otherwise a fantastic tablet. Was wondering if anyone has utilized a third party application to monitor and shut down the tablet by referencing predefined temperature thresholds so the SP2 shuts down well before its does so under extreme heat (which its done at least once). Or perhaps there's another method of preventing system restart after shut down unless the power button on the tablet is pressed. Any thoughts/feedback much appreciated.
