    Update on the pen/keyboard issue. I uninstalled the ISD Wacom driver and reinstalled after a reboot; it's working fine now.

    My Pro was stuck in sleep

    I do have other choices for class; not optimal - but I do have a Chromebook, an iPad and a Nexus 7. Neither run Office, Dragon Naturally Speaking or Adobe Pro; these are all necessities for me. Plus the time to reload and redo all my personalization would really hurt; I work full time and tutor...

    8.1 Lockscreen slide show issue

    I thought my pen wasn't working too, but it seems it won't work with the keyboard attached. Works fine after the keyboard is removed.

    My Pro was stuck in sleep

    I've read about a "sleep of death" and thought I read it was fixed. Has anything like this ever happened to anyone on this forum? Thursday night I upgraded to 8.1, put the pro on the charger, turned it off and went to bed. Friday after work I turned it on to check the new features, changed my...

    Can't turn off back camera when using Google video chat

    The settings for selecting the front camera are in the Google Hangout Window; apparently the rear camera is selected by default. You only have the option while in a video hangout; but, it remembers your selection.

    Can anyone help with these issues

    It turns out there is a version of flash for Windows 8 and Acrobat Pro needs it to open those types of PDF files. Downloaded, installed and fixed. The Bassbuds worked the next time I tried, just a Windows quirk I guess. The stupid micro sd never would work, even after formatting to NTSF so I...

    Can anyone help with these issues

    And now I have a micro SD card the Pro keeps saying is write protected. Although, my Win 7 machine writes to it fine. I was going to use it for Portable apps. I even reformatted it with the HP USB format tool and it still believes it's write protected.

    Can anyone help with these issues

    Adobe Pro XI. I have a PDF portfolio I wanted to work on, it won't open it and I have a lot of school notes taken with a Pulse pen, it won't open the pencasts either.

    Can anyone help with these issues

    I figured out Artrage, and yes the Bassbuds work on my other devices. The Pro recognizes them but no matter what settings I apply I get no sound. I read Windows 8 had embedded flash, but Adobe Pro doesn't seem to understand that. I guess I'll call their support team Monday.

    Can anyone help with these issues

    I have Adobe Pro but it won't run my multimedia PDF's - it wants the latest version of flash but there's no flash download for Windows 8 I have a pair of Bassbuds earphones but can't get sound out of them, a cheaper, generic pair works fine. Does anyone use Artrage 3.5? If so, does it work...

    Is it Powerful enough to do this.........?

    If I wasn't tech savvy I would be confused; and, most of the people I know are not tech savvy. I think that's where the difference lies; plus many are trying to use Windows 8 on a regular PC without touch. I love touch; but, I'm most familiar with Android. I got it after a few minutes; but I...

    Pro in Hand - first impressions It's in my hand! It's heavier than I expected. The screen is beautiful. I dislike the kickstand; two case choices - Amazon.com : MoKo Genuine Leather Slim-fit Type / Touch Keyboard Cover Companion Sleeve Case for Microsoft Surface Pro 10.6" Inch Windows 8...

    Is it Powerful enough to do this.........?

    Maybe; but, judging by the $1299 price on the 256GB it wont be cheap and there were always be a newer, better something around the corner. I start grad school in 3 weeks and I'm so tired of waiting for my old Sony to unfreeze. I need power to do my homework, plus I'm so used to fast - my...
