Type cover problems?

I appear to be having problems with the type cover, it will simply stop accepting keystrokes for several seconds and then start up again, and it is becoming very annoying.

Also, I can open it up and detach the cover to put in my password and just use as a tablet, but the surface then won't bring up the on screen keyboard like it thinks the cover is still attached.


I appear to be fully up to date

Anyone else having these issues?

Suggestions?

I have had the problem both on solid surfaces and with it laying next to me in bed.

It is connected properly, as I always make sure that I have the loud "click" when it connects.

Went through the test that you proposed in number 3 but had the problem occur within minute. Problem seems worst in Word but does occur in Internet Explorer

Ive had to reconnect then disconnect the touch keyboard to get the one screen one to appear a couple of times.

I've been having these exact problems. I'm assuming there's no fix yet? The only real suggestion from Microsoft is to exchange it.
