    System time off after hibernating

    For the last couple of weeks I noticed my system time is off after hibernating or sleep. I'll close my SP3 and when I wake up in the morning the time is from last night. Anyone know what is causing this? I know on a desktop it can mean the BIOS battery can be bad.

    Fake charger?

    I just purchased an extra charger at Best Buy and it looks different than the original charger that was included with my Surface Pro 3. The charger block does not have the Microsoft holographic sticker and the charger cable is missing the rubber clip on the chord. Are all extra chargers like this?

    Charge Indicator Light

    Is the charge indicator light supposed to turn off when fully charged? My SP2 turns off when fully charged. I also had to exchange my first SP3 and I thought I remembered the first SP3's light turning off when fully charged as well. My 2nd SP3 light never turns off.

    Screen Brightness

    My Pro 2 screen seems darker than my Pro 1. I have to set the brightness to about 75% to have the white on this forum be bright. I think on my Pro 1 I only needed to set it for the screen to be bright. Are you guys experiencing a dark screen too?
