    Glad I decided to keep my Surface Book

    If you don't mind me asking, how is the battery life on your SB?

    Will SB driver issues ever be resolved?

    I saw over on Surface Reddit that there was a beta launch for new Intel drivers, so I think they are trying to get new drivers out soon. But I would not download those beta drivers, they have a lot of known issues.

    Battery Performance

    So do you think I should get my computer looked at with those warnings on the USB? Or is there anything I can do about it?

    Battery Performance

    I don't have anything in the device. I've also just used the computer for 25 minutes of light usage and it's already down 4%. Do you think this would be the culprit to my battery issues? Should I take it to the Microsoft Store?

    Battery Performance

    I've let my battery completely drain and recharge. I also finally ran an powercfg/energy test and got these warnings. The power policy doesn't bother me; it's those USB warnings that do. Should I uninstall the USB drives and reinstall them? Can anyone help me figure how to fix them? Thanks!

    Increased battery drain after Nov. update

    Battery life has been pretty abysmal on my SB as well. I have another week and a half to decide if I want to keep this computer. I'm already on my first replacement and I am afraid to try another replacement because I barely have any of the other issues reported now. I love the concept and...

    SFC Scan Finding Corrupt Files Post Update

    I also just ran sfc/scannow out of curiosity and am getting corrupt files that can't be fixed. When I try to run DISM, it says the option is unknown, error: 87.

    Protective Skin for My Surface Book - DecalGirl

    I really want to try one of these decals for my SB, but I feel like I might be a bit OCD with it. $25 isn't too expensive, but just not sure.

    Protective Skin for My Surface Book - DecalGirl

    Thanks for the input! How many extra decals do you get when you buy from DecalGirl? And I assume they come off the device cleanly?

    Protective Skin for My Surface Book - DecalGirl

    How difficult is it to apply the decals? I usually find it difficult applying screen protectors and so never apply them.

    Battery Performance

    Just received the 11/18 update. Will see if they improves anything. I also checked if there were any updates for my battery drivers and they both say they are up to date even though dated to 2006.

    Battery Performance

    Well I'm pretty sure I have all of the updates, including the one from 11/13.

    Battery Performance

    That was almost in exactly a 24 hour period that I lost 7%.

    Battery Performance

    I had all of the updates applied before I shut it down 24 hours ago and the computer was completely shut down, so how am I losing 7%+ battery life when the machine is completely off? That makes absolutely no sense. No other device I own does this. I'm really thinking there is a hardware defect...

    Battery Performance

    So even after applying the Fall Update, I'm still having battery issues. Only getting a max of 5 hours of usage just surfacing the web on Firefox, using OneNote, and checking email with Outlook. I've reinstalled the battery drivers, turned off adaptive brightness, and disabled startup...

    Solved Surface Book freezing all the time

    I would get a replacement. Most likely a hardware defect, which Microsoft still hasn't addressed. Updates and system refreshes will not fix it. I'm on a replacement now because my first one froze all the time.

    Post November Windows Update - much better

    Maybe get a replacement if the DD continues to give you problems? I only had a DD once before the Fall Update as well as a BSOD, but nothing since then.

    SB not Updating?

    Notice any differences with the update? The SB running better? I did a little testing with my SB today and it seems like the battery life might be a little better. However, I also reinstalled the battery drivers again and disabled some programs on startup.

    Battery Performance

    The Fall Update is the Windows Update, not the Surface specific update from 11/2. At least I thought I completely shut it off. How do I check if fast boot is enabled? I never enabled it before unless it is automatic. I also disabled some of the startup apps today and will see if that helps. I...

    SB not Updating?

    Congratulations! So would you say having the SB docked led to some of the errors?
