    My surface turned itself off [​IMG]

    Didn't know to what stage at first, but hit the power button and it came back to life, battery sitting at 30%... anyone else had this? Seemed completely and utterly random. Hopefully it was a one off!

    What was your email about? The latest update included a desperation trigger to prevent users from sending embarrassing emails :)

    The only thought that comes to mind (other than the obvious 'is this device defective?' thought) is that updates will force a shutdown/restart after a period of time. I don't suppose you remember noticing a message to this effect? I seem to recall you're a new owner, therefore a couple of updates may be queued up for you. Just a thought. It's not 'normal' behavior' to just shut down randomly.

    I wish I had hair like that (well maybe not quite like that) but it's still better than balding!

    Anyway, yeah I'm new to my Surface but I did already download about 12 updates the day I turned it on. Didn't notice anymore pending...
