I have gotten into the habit of waking my Surface by tapping the space bar, and that works fine. I can wake any of my other computers by moving the mouse, but that won't work on the surface. I have a USB mouse and also a Bluetooth mouse and I have tried both of them and no dice. I checked device manager and the box "Allow this device to wake the computer" is checked. Does anyone else have this problem and better yet solved it? As a secondary complaint it seems that the screen blanking and transition to sleep are using the battery rules even though the unit is plugged in. I have checked all the power settings using the graphic interface and powercfg and nothing jumps out at me.
