My current configuration is Surface Pro 1 + Touch Cover 2. Whether the setting 'When I close the lid' is set to 'do nothing' or 'sleep' it doesn't matter. Close the cover and wait 5 seconds for windows to recognise the cover is closed. Open the cover. If it was set to sleep, wake up the surface pro. All the touchpad gestures stop working. This includes: - Swipe in from left or right. - Two finger inertial scrolling (in file explorer, it will scroll but in steps like a mouse wheel) - Pinch zoom - Double tap and drag (introduced in Windows 8.1 Update) To get this functionality back you either have to unplug/replug the Type Cover 2. Or reboot Windows. Is anyone else experiencing this?
