Is this happening with your Type Cover attached or detached?

This is the problem with the type cover being remove when in sleep mode. You need to login with the keyboard and after you log in.. you can remove the type cover. I had the same problem not being able to pull up keyboard in metro internet explorer.
 
So never remove your touch cover in sleep mode or auto turn off. The cpu still thinks the type cover is sill attach, making the screen keyboard not show up. Fix is to put cover on and after cpu is on detach ... no restart or updates needed
 
If this is still a problem, I noticed you can touch the 'accessibility' icon in the lower left of the login screen. There is an option to bring an on-screen keyboard. This is not the same TOUCH keyboard you would get without the type/touch cover attached - it is the legacy accessibility keyboard.
