    Known issues for SP4

    I have the same issue with the Surface 4 and the new dock. Coming out of sleep or hibernate it is now a 50/50 that will freeze or go dark. Funny that at the end of November it was stable. Seems like recent drivers are to blame. I even changed from sleep to hibernate in the settings. So...

    Surface Pro 4 Lot Numbers

    Returned my previous Lot 1542 and got a Lot 1543 with Samsung SSD (i5/256). It is MUCH more stable. Not one bluescreen in 4 days. Previously I had two lot 1542 machines that were bluescreening atleast once a day. I still have the odd video driver stoppage issue (but doesn't blue screen) and...

    Two serious issues: Screen Flickering and Keyboard backlight stopped

    Ok silly me - just read tips and tricks and saw the f1 / f2 control keyboard backlight.. Keyboard works again. Issue #1 still freaking me out a bit. It has to be a darkish background and the flicker is ever so slight. I think I may return and swap for new one just to be safe.

    I'm only getting 5.5-6 hours with medium productivity work. It was only 5 hours prior to July 8th firmware - hoping it will get better but if this is the norm I may return mine this week.

    New Firmware - July 8, 2014

    I still don't see the July FW update in windows update? Can anyone confirm if battery life has improved? I see the driver pack has been updated. Just not sure how to manually install firmware from the driver pack. (Has a bunch of .cap files in addition to normal drivers).
