    External monitors are a nightmare

    I think Windows was never designed to scale anything, let alone on two monitors with two scaling factors. MS had to work really to make it work (as opposed to Mac OS X or Android where it was kind of built it). And yes, anything below 2.0 is non-integer. There is a reason Apple always does...

    Surface Pro 2 Auto Sleep not working

    I had the exact same issue (auto wake-up fixed by the January firmware but auto-sleep still not working). For me (and a lot of Windows 8 users), the issue was HomeGroup. So try this: turn off wifi and see if the surface goes to sleep (just put the timer at like 1 minute). If yes, then turn on...
