    System restarts instead of returning normally from sleep

    sfc /scannow never found any problems. I switched to using Hibernate instead of Sleep/Standby, but recently after upgrading to Win10 found myself using Sleep/Standby and once again my surface is crashing during wake and then needs to start from scratch. Could be something different now it's been...

    Why does my Surface Pro 3 not set the correct resolution on my Dell P2815Q after sleep?

    This problem seemed to improve but not be totally solved upon upgrading the drivers. After upgrading to Windows 10 it's almost completely gone - occasionally it doesn't wake the DELL monitor up after waking the SP3, but I don't recall having the wrong resolution issue since Win10.

    Why does my Surface Pro 3 not set the correct resolution on my Dell P2815Q after sleep?

    Thanks Dan. I'm connecting with a mini-DP to mini-DP cable. I was previously using mini-DP to DP and had some problems - can't recall exactly but was probably along these lines - so switched to this one. I'll try swapping back to the DP cable and also try a DP-to-HDMI cable if that doesn't work...

    Why does my Surface Pro 3 go to sleep?

    How can I be sure? Seems to be properly asleep because when it comes back on the wifi is turned off and takes some time to come back. Having said that, maybe the screen is off AND the wifi has turned itself off to save power?

    Why does my Surface Pro 3 not set the correct resolution on my Dell P2815Q after sleep?

    About half the time when my Surface Pro 3 returns from sleep/hibernate it doesn't set the correct resolution on my Dell P2815Q (4k) monitor. Instead I have to right-click on desktop, set resolution, change it from 1024x768 to 3840x2160 and move the monitor relative location to be where I want...

    Why does my Surface Pro 3 go to sleep?

    My Surface Pro 3 goes to sleep when it's plugged in, after something like 5 mins. It's on the Balanced plan with 'put the computer to sleep' after 4 mins On battery and 2 hours Plugged in, yet I find it asleep after going to get a coffee or a short meeting. It's definitely plugged in, it's using...

    Wi-Fi issues driving me crazy

    vsherry, you're not alone with your frustrations. Mine continues to be totally rubbish with regards networking - http://www.surfaceforums.net/threads/continued-network-problems-and-bad_pool_header-bsod.15328/

    Continued network problems and BAD_POOL_HEADER BSOD

    @sharpcolorado - thanks, having just had my 2nd or 3rd BSOD this week I'll give that a try now. I do have a slightly interesting setup: * LogMeIn Hamachi installed, so I have a Hamachi network adapter listed in Network Adapters * Hyper-V installed, although it's currently disabled so I'm able...

    Default Power Plan options apart from Balanced have disappeared, how to restore them?

    On Windows 8.1 on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3, normally I have Balanced, Power saver, and maybe High Performance. Recently I noticed I now only have Balanced ... where could the others have gone? I certainly have not deleted them myself. When I go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power...

    Continued network problems and BAD_POOL_HEADER BSOD

    My Surface Pro 3 running Win 8.1 with all the latest updates continues to have problems with the network adapter. In the last week or so I've also had 3 BSOD crashes, at least two of these were when I was experiencing network problems. Are all Surface Pro 3s suffering from this problem? Is...

    System restarts instead of returning normally from sleep

    None of the updates failed. A full reset would require me to reinstall and reconfigure a lot of things, so not really an option for this one.

    System restarts instead of returning normally from sleep

    I have the latest windows updates. Updates last installed on 29th Oct ... which could be about when I started experiencing this problem. I don't have Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, and haven't done anything funky with my power management settings to my knowledge.

    System restarts instead of returning normally from sleep

    I do have Visual Studio but it reports that it can't open the MEMORY.DMP file ("Debugging older format crashdumps is not supported"), which appears to be normal. It also can't open minidump files. I tried WhoCrashed instead which reported the problem was in pdc.sys: On Thu 06/11/2014...

    System restarts instead of returning normally from sleep

    Hi Jeff, Thanks for the suggestion, but I have Hyper-V installed but disabled using bcdedit as per this article so don't have any virtual workloads (and never have run any VMs on it for example). I did that weeks before this issue started occurring. Running powercfg /a gives me these available...

    System restarts instead of returning normally from sleep

    Recently my Surface Pro 3 i5 seems to no longer be able to return from Sleep mode, instead when I wake it up it's a clean restart. It may have done this once or twice in the past couple of months but now it's happening very often, perhaps every time. Is this a recent firmware update or something...
