    New Surface Pro 2 128, have done all of the updates including firmware and it still doesn't seem to consistently power on. I understand sleep, etc. Sometimes when it sits for a few hours a quick press of the power button brings it to life, other times holding the power button down for ten seconds or so turns it on, sometimes I have to hold it for ten seconds or so then release it then press it again and it will turn on.

    Also there are times when it's only off for a little bit then will go through the same thing. I can press then power button and no response. Press the Windows symbol at the bottom of the screen and can feel it vibrate but no screen. Doesn't matter if I have the Type keyboard connected or not in either case.

    Think it's defective or is the nature of these?

    I have one day left to return it to the store, otherwise it's back to Microsoft for warranty.

    Thanks for any input.

    Nobody has seen this issue aside from me?

    I have not experienced this myself, seems odd that the windows button is responding correctly but no display though.

    Connect the power supply before you turn it on, or wake it up from sleep.
