    power button action - turn off screen

    Nah, i couldnt justify buying a tablet just for the reasons i listed. Despite saying i didnt need 90% of the PCs functions, im a transplant patient and theres simply no knowing when things go belly up, and i definitely couldnt justify having a laptop which is going to be sat in a box somewhere...

    power button action - turn off screen

    Does anyone know if this is possible somehow? Ive had my Surface Pro 2 for a year now, and the the first 6mo or so i've had the screensaver disabled and its either on 24/7 or its in sleep mode via the external power button. The problem is using 'sleep' disables the wifi, or at least enough that...

    Device Waking from Sleep Mode

    hmm, i just took another look at the event log to see what happened around 6:20am 06:20:58 - WseClientMonitorSvc - Service stopped successfully 06:20:58 - The system is entering sleep. Sleep reason: Button or lid (It hadnt been touched for about 24h!) 06:20:58 - The system time has changed to...

    Device Waking from Sleep Mode

    I'll just have to keep looking and seeing if i can spot when it wakes and see what the event viewer has to say for itself. I dont think the clock moving forward was the trigger though, i just think that happened in a sequence of events moments before when its clock was wrong, something else...

    Device Waking from Sleep Mode

    So, it's just woke itself up, i checked the event log, and theres plenty of activity at 9:01am, the earliest item being : Log Name: System Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-General Date: 24/03/2014 09:01:27 Event ID: 1 Task Category: None Level: Information...

    Device Waking from Sleep Mode

    Cheers for the replies folks, i'll try and give them all a try. It really wouldnt be an issue if it wasnt for the fact that im literally about 6" away and staring right at it when i go to sleep :D The network adapter isnt set to wake the device in its power management settings (its grey'd out...

    Device Waking from Sleep Mode

    I've been noticing that my SP2 will occasionally wake from being put into sleep mode (via power switch) and its getting quite annoying. The reason its annoying is because 95% of the time its by the side of my bed, and i'll either be in bed watching TV and catch it in the corner of my eye sat...

    Anyone successfully using XBMC for MKV files on SP2?

    As Reach says, XBMC is basically a professional grade media center, for free. I dont think ive ever had codec issues, and i run a copy of it on a £40 Raspberry Pi which is the same size as a credit card, no codec packs or even an OS to install codecs. It basically helps catalogue your media...

    SP2 Wall Mount accessory

    Well, anything on an arm is a bit more clunky than im looking for, though i do like the idea of plonking myself into bed, watching some TV and having that extended out infront of me :D The music stand is closer perhaps, i think the issue is that like i said, the Dockem item would be perfect if...

    SP2 Wall Mount accessory

    Its a fair question, the reason for the purchase might seem daft to many, but essentially as a day to day purpose, its mounted bed-side so it allows me to access a web browser and email. Theres plenty of tablets (the RT included) which would allow that, however i work from home, spend the...

    SP2 Wall Mount accessory

    Does anyone know of a wall mounting solution for the Surface Pro? I bought a Dockem Koala having seen Surface in a description from someone selling them on ebay a while back, but the Pro is too thick to slot in. Im not sure if i wasnt paying attention and its fine for RT but not Pro, or it...
