opening lid does not activate screen


New Member
Hi there,

i am using a surface pro 4 with a ms type cover!

Whenever i close the lid the screen of the surface goes black (hibernate is disable though).

But when i open the lid again after 30 seconds the screen turns on ONLY if i press a button on the type cover.

- is this an intended behavior?

I have also reset the power settings to default schemes but this did not change anything.

firmware & windows 10 are both updated to latest version.

I would be very happy for any input.

Thank you.

I also have to mash the type cover a bit before it'll be recognised and the machine will then wake up from sleep.
