    Magnetic Charger Connection

    The LAST thing I am is a 'steady hand'. The charge cord on my sp2 is probably the easiest of all my devices to connect. I found that holding the cord 4 to 5" back from the connector (experiment) gives me enough control to align it with the charge port. The strong magnet then pulls it right in...

    If you don't have problems, DO NOT INSTALL the Jan. 18 Firmware

    Just before the January 'fix', I started experiencing my sp2 would be warm, and battery drained after having it shut down overnight. This was basically the only issue which is now fixed. I rarely use sleep, so can't comment on the failure to enter hibernate. I'll try testing this though and...

    What video player are you using on your SP2?

    You're welcome. Not sure what the criteria is to develop an app for the Microsoft store, but wish they'd clamp down on those who seem to be attempting to take advantage of users. One rule of thumb I've adopted for myself is to not purchase any paid apps that don't give you a trial period. The...

    What video player are you using on your SP2?

    I also use the VLC desktop app. I started using it to play MKV's, and it does a super job with these and any other format I've tried thus far. As for a VLC metro app, I believe they are working on one, but it's not arrived@ the store yet. The ones in the store now that use the name VLC, are...

    Firmware Release Day Results Here

    Makes sense to me, jnj. To be honest, I had heard of some people having random connection issues with their type covers. Even though I have not had issues myself, I feared losing connection during the update could give me problems. Who knows though, I may buckle my chinstrap and update like...

    Firmware Release Day Results Here

    No sorry's needed. Like I said, I wasn't suggesting this should be 'the way'. It was merely what I did and how it turned out. :-)

    Firmware Release Day Results Here

    For what it's worth, before updating on 12-10, I disconnected my type 2 keyboard. I also had my sp2 unplugged. I'm not suggesting anyone does the same, but I've not experienced any of the various issues some have complained of.

    Built in screen protector

    I seem to remember pulling off what would seem to be a cheap protector from the screen. I used the description 'thin film' because it was used in the op, and felt they may have been referring to the shipping wrap. Again, outside of that, there is nothing. That shouldn't be that confusing.

    Built in screen protector

    Not quite sure I understand the op, but, the surface is shipped with a thin film covering the screen. Outside of that, there is nothing. Can't imagine that's what you're referring to though.

    Very Unhappy :(

    I'm going to have to try that game out. Heard it was good. + I think I HAVE to hear these fans lol! Just hope it doesn't go like that first trip to the restroom after a few beers :-)

    Very Unhappy :(

    I've been through that with various companies. Although it's certainly frustrating, I, and others I suspect, are willing to deal with it as long as we ultimately get the results we were seeking. I'm sure when you're buzzing around on your replacement, you'll forget all about the phone calls :-)

    Very Unhappy :(

    @Jasmine http://www.surfaceforums.net/forum/showthread.php?p=46826 Sounds similar to your experience with the battery issue. May want to follow similar course of action. Funny about the fans. In the 3 to 4 weeks I've had my sp2 128, I've not heard the fans come on once. Maybe watchn hd...

    Surface Pro 2 with type case deosn't turn on when opened

    Congrats on your new device! No, you're not missing anything. Not sure about surface 2, but, pro 2 does not wake by opening the keyboard cover. Tapping any key when opened will wake your sp2. Enjoy your device :-)

    My Surface after 3 weeks of Working Hard

    I kinda doubt that was what the folks in Redmond had envisioned when designing this great piece, but wth :-) Although I have NO intentions on a similar fate for mine, it is cool to know it could withstand such use. Thanks for sharing & keep us updated throughout the life of your sp2.

    Pro 2 Storage Question

    I would expect many of you on this forum, being Microsoft enthusiasts, to have had a skydrive account for some time now. If so, check your account, you may have 25 GB of skydrive storage as I do. Can't remember when this happened (old age), but was a reward of sorts, for those who already had...
