    Are the WIFI issues with the Surface Book resolved? (before I buy)

    I'll second that. Mine works great as well.

    Problems with Office 2016

    Running Office 2016 all day every day. (shoot me...) Anyway, I actually find that Office works better with hardware graphics acceleration turned on for my SB. This is the first machine that I can say that about. There are a few graphical glitches I get in Outlook (calendar goes white) and...

    Palm getting in the way still when trying to use pen

    Wow, sorry for the bad reading comprehension from me. :) I didn't realize you had already said you were a lefty and that you updated your settings. Is is just the initial laying down of your hand that causes the problem? Is it still an issue when you continue writing? I'm fairly new to the...

    Palm getting in the way still when trying to use pen

    Are you a righty or lefty? If you are writing with your left hand, try launching the Pen setting app and changing what hand you use.

    Performance Base for battery life

    That was actually my point... I don't think any of the applications I normally use would benefit from it. I was looking to verify that it was using the internal GPU since I would prefer to prioritize battery life over performance.

    Surface Book bulge

    I just spent a few minutes staring at and caressing the back of mine and couldn't find a bulge. I do feel a bit creepy and I'm glad my wife didn't notice. ;)

    Performance Base for battery life

    Answering my own question after some additional Googling... It appears you can tell if the Nvidia GPU is being used by checking the "Surface Detach" icon in the System Tray. If it has a circle with a lightning bolt through it and says "Action Required" in the hover tip, the Nvida GPU is being used.

    Performance Base for battery life

    Thanks, it sounds like I shouldn't need to worry about the battery in either case. Just curious, have you changed any of the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel? Wondering if I should let the SB choose the graphics card or if I am better either defaulting to one or doing the app by app settings.

    Performance Base for battery life

    I recently jumped from an SP4 to a Surface Book i7 16GB with the Performance Base. I mostly made the choice for the extra battery life. Has anyone done any testing/benchmarks comparing the battery life and performance using Auto Select vs Integrated Graphics in the Nvidia Control Panel? If...

    Out of Memeory Display Port

    I have some positive news. I changed to a 3rd cable (Monoprice Part #9473 "3ft 32AWG Mini DisplayPort to HDMI® w/Audio Cable - White" $6.78) and I'm not seeing the issue for the last 48 hours. I guess what others have said in previous threads about the dock being sensitive to certain cables is...

    Out of Memeory Display Port

    I've managed to make it worse somehow. Now my SP3 reboots when I come out of sleep... I might have a full system reset coming in my near future.

    Out of Memeory Display Port

    Switching to a Mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter to see if it makes a difference. I didn't think I would be able to get the full resolution from this configuration but it works fine. I'll report back after I've used it for a day or so.

    Out of Memeory Display Port

    I had the error when I resumed my SP3 this morning. I've attached a screenshot of the error and added a link to the DispDiag.exe. Error Screenshot: http://1drv.ms/1zj3bTu DispDaig.dat: http://1drv.ms/1vmKwHp

    Out of Memeory Display Port

    I disabled the "Intel Display Audio" mid-day yesterday and so far haven't seen the error but I don't think I have a large enough sample to say that it is fixed yet. I just tried that because it was another change that was introduced when I switched to the new monitor using Mini-DisplayPort to...

    Out of Memeory Display Port

    I have 5120 MB of Virtual Memory and it is configured to automatically set it. I have a 4GB SP3. It doesn't seem to be related to what if anything I have running on my computer when it goes to sleep. There are times the only application running is Lync. Other times, I have several IE tabs...
