    Why Does SP2/Power Cover Charge, Then Discharge While Not In Use?

    I find that if I leave my SP2/Power Cover "charging" for a couple of days or so, even though it's charger light has gone out, the SP2 itself may show a 100% charge, the Power Cover sometimes shows practically no charge, or just a very few percent? I make it a point to open Task Manager just...

    Yep, I think you're right!

    Can't Update Windows With My SP2??

    When I check for updates and try to install the "1 Important update" here on my SP2, it starts, but then fails over and over. It says "Code 800706BE", whatever that means. Otherwise, the machine works fine. What's its problem here anyway?

    Why Do My Audio F1, F2, and F3 Keys No Longer Work?

    I'm just now noticing that my audio F1, F2, and F3 keys on my Power Cover no longer work. As I doing something totally dumb here or is there something like an "audio lock" (as in cap & num))that I've accidentally pushed, or not pushed? As a matter of fact, when I press the F1 key, I get a...

    Fully Charged Power Cover's Battery Discharges Down to 40% Overnight, Huh?

    Good observation, but I'm afraid there's no such switching function as far as I know.

    Fully Charged Power Cover's Battery Discharges Down to 40% Overnight, Huh?

    I am noticing a very aggravating issue. After a full charge (100% on both SP@ and Power Cover), if left off overnight, the Power Cover's battery is only showing a 40% charge...WTF? This renders the Power Cover's usefulness almost zero for my applications. Is this the way it's supposed to work?

    Seems That Power Cover Battery Level Drops Very Fast?

    I'm noticing that when I start using my SP2 with its Power Cover (both @ 100% charge), that the Power Cover's battery level starts dropping like a rock for whatever reason. Within a couple of hours of just web surfacing or other un-demanding use, its level goes down to 50% or lower. I'm...

    About scratches and warranties.

    Surely the "paint" on the Surface isn't really paint. I would assume it is an anodization applied to the magnesium allow. Anodization is very hard and wear resistant.

    Why Does My Desktop Photo Keeps Dissapearing?

    I guess I'm just dumb, but I cannot find "Windows Explorer" here on my SP2. How do you go about this?

    Why Does My Desktop Photo Keeps Dissapearing?

    I find that for some reason, my desktop photo keeps disappearing when I start up up my SP2. I simply get a solid black background with my desktop icons on it. It seems that this problem occurs more often if I have totally "shut down" the SP2, than if it had been just put to "sleep". Is there a...

    What's The Problem Here Anyway?

    It wouldn't be necessary to charge both batteries "at the same time", just to fully charge one and then the other.

    What's The Problem Here Anyway?

    Less power consumption. Less potential problem with SP2 "awakening" when it's not supposed to..to name a couple.

    What's The Problem Here Anyway?

    What I'm trying to figure out, is the reason why it is so difficult for Microsoft to simply make it possible to completely charge BOTH the SP2's own internal battery, PLUS the Power Cover's battery, while the Surface is totally SHUT DOWN... this apparently can not happen unless you leave the...

    Using Logitech Ultrathin T630 Mouse with SP2

    Oh yes, it clicks when you depress it, it just doesn't produce the scrolling sound, or as MS calls it, "haptic" feedback that the Arc Touch mouse does.

    Using Logitech Ultrathin T630 Mouse with SP2

    Yep, it is guilty of that, but I really haven't found this problematic. Perhaps a little different at first.

    Using Logitech Ultrathin T630 Mouse with SP2

    I like the easy way to go "back" which isn't there on the MS mouse, plus the ability to scroll upward and downward anywhere on the mouse's upper surface rather than having to feel for and find the narrow "scroll strip" in the middle of the MS mouse. Also, the Logitech mouse will let you scroll...

    Logitech T630 mouse

    I've had one for a month or so now and am fairly happy with it. I use it on my Microsoft Surface Pro 2. I do find that if gets a bit crazy sometimes when being used near other Bluetooth devices, and for whatever reason, it causes my Surface to jump back to the desktop occasionally, even without...

    Using Logitech Ultrathin T630 Mouse with SP2

    I have been using a Logitech Ultrathin T630 mouse with my SP2 for a month or so now and have found it far superior to the Microsoft Arc Touch mouse I had been using earlier. The only problem that I find a bit aggravating with it, is the fact that, for some reason, while surfing the web or...

    Surface pro 2 died

    Have you tried holding down the "volume up" rocker (first) band then press and hold the power button. That usually fixes darned near everything. It's gotten me out of a hole a few times.
