    Not sure why this is happening sometimes.. there must be something running while its sleeping and charging.
    I have it plugged in all night charging and sometimes the SP is very hot when I pick it up, other times it's not.
    Usually I restart it and then it runs cool but then after a week or so I'll have it charging all night and its super hot when I pick it up.
    Any ideas why it runs hot even if its showing a fully charge battery??

    Yeah, because it's not sleeping...because SP sleep stuff is buggy as hell especially if you rely on auto-sleeping.

    IF you don't have a touch cover attached AND you push the power button to sleep, it sleeps reliably. But if you don't do those things, various programs can keep the machine awake.

    (DISCLAIMER: Many owner report different problems and solutions to sleep problems so take the above with a grain of salt)

    Yeah I had this issue when I first got my Surface Pro. I would pick it up in the morning and find it's still hot - and that's because it wasn't sleeping. skellington is right on the money - auto-sleeping issues.

    I did some trial and error with it and eventually I just set it to shut down when I press the power button. It boots up so quickly it's not much different from being in sleep mode. I thought it would be a problem but in the end it saved a bit on battery life too so now I just shut it off when I'm not using it.

    If it works, use "Hibernate".
