    Hi,

    Can someone explain why I cant keep my SP3 on with the screen off when its charging? It looks like its missing power settings that I had with my SP.

    Thanks!
    Charlie

    With Connected Standby enabled those two settings revert to the same.... at least each time I've attempted to set them independently.

    Agree that it's very annoying you can't have the screen turn off without going into standby. Might be OK if you are only running Metro apps since they theoretically maintain connectivity and get to run in small slivers of time. But if you run desktop apps, you are screwed.

    For now, when I'm docked, I just keep my Surface cover closed with the screen on. :-/

    Yeah, I want to hear emails come in. Not just when I wake the screen.

    I've configured the MUI Mail App with the same accounts that I have in Outlook for that reason, also I tend use the MUI App in the evenings and weekends as it impacts battery life less....
