I have looked online and have seen that this is a common issue with Windows 7, but I can't find this issue reported for Windows 8 which is what I am running. Basically, when I put my surface to sleep (press the button) and wake it up it restarts and I lose all of my open programs. I looked at my event log and it says there is a critical event with ID 41 from Kernel-Power. I think somehow the power was unavailable in between the sleep mode and waking it up, or so I've read online. How do I fix this? I keep having to re-open my documents in recovery mode and its really annoying.
