considering that the default setting for updates is automatically update. It updated automatically on my machine with no user interaction and it was in the docking station.The instructions mention "Do not use the Surface Docking Station."
Sounds sinister... I'm sure some docking station users will apply the update without reading this... soo should we expect mushroom clouds over the locations of users that do use their docking stations?
Also "and check that Windows shows a 40% charge or greater when you hover over the icon in the taskbar."
What if it doesn't and or won't go that high. again, users will just apply the update without reading. I suppose the update could check for itself but then the reading is false anyway.
Just things I wonder about.
from the FAQ on the link.."Over the next five charge and discharge cycles, the gauge will stabilize as it relearns the actual battery capacity in your Surface Pro 3."Nope, still bad. Battery report reads 5,069 mWh capacity. About 30 minutes on battery, I think it is the same as it was before the update.
Mine was also in the docking station when the update was downloaded, but I noticed it and restarted with the power cable. Fingers crossed that it all goes OK.It updated automatically on my machine with no user interaction and it was in the docking station.
I hope so. My battery is an LG so I shouldn't even need the firmware update. After it was installed, clicking the battery icon showed 15 hours remaining! I worked on it for about two hours today and it showed 15% left. I usually get a good 4 to 5 hours.from the FAQ on the link.."Over the next five charge and discharge cycles, the gauge will stabilize as it relearns the actual battery capacity in your Surface Pro 3."
Woah... and i only made the update by chance. Lucky i had 80% battery left and nothing connected.From the FAQ -- "Ensure that you're directly connected to AC power. Don't use the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station. Also make sure that you don't have any USB peripherals or external monitors plugged into the device."
