    Can we get a pro x forum?

    It would be great to have a forum just for this device since its so new and different. I have been looking for a place to talk about software for it but there isn't s great spot on the internet dedicated to discussing it yet. I think this website would be a great spot todo so on.

    when I detach and reattach my clipboard my battery goes from charged to 85%?

    when my clipboard on my SB2 is attached to the keyboard it says 100% charged on both batteries. But if I detach the clipboard and immediately reattach then the battery reports as 85% and says it will take 30 minutes to charge. I can do this over and over. As soon as it reaches 100% charged I...

    Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

    Sometimes my SB2 wont charge, and I'm trying to figure out of the problem is that the battery is faulty: https://i.imgur.com/nusrlue.png It looks like I've had 12 charge cycles but the battery has worn 8%. The device is maybe 4 months old.

    can anyone on 1803 post a picture of all the updates they have installed on their sb2?

    I'm worried I'm missing some, because I reverted 1803 and it never showed up for me again. I've since manually re-installed it but now I want to make sure that I'm not somehow missing other updates as well. The only ones I have after installing 1803 are:

    Anyone else ever get a BSOD with the reason: driver_unloaded_without_canceling

    I got the BSOD about 10 minutes after detaching and re-attaching my clipboard on my SB2. I did so because for some reason it wasn't detecting the keyboard's battery. It does that randomly and usually re-attaching fixes it. It fixed it this time too... apart from the BSOD 10 minutes later. There...

    new SB2 - doesn't sleep

    I have a brand new SB2 here, fully updated. For whatever reason when I put it to sleep (or close the lid) it just keeps on running. For example yesterday night I put it to sleep, woke up and it was hot.... this was alarming because it was in clamshell (screen closed) mode all night so the...

    My SP4 keeps rebooting automatically to install updates and they removed the option to disable? WHY!

    I used to be able to go in and do this: but now this option is just gone (lol) and for some reason Microsoft thinks it's A GREAT IDEA to just reboot and close all my programs right in the middle of my work day! I had to open up group policy editor and navigate that mess to enforce a policy...

    can I have both connected standby AND my power saver plan?

    If I keep connected standby on then the ONLY power plan I see is Balanced. I don't see the built in power saving plan nor do I see my custom one. If I turn CS off then I see all my plans but then I have to hibernate... .... and wifi doesn't work when I come out of sleep, which literally has...

    Can we talk about battery life? Microsoft says "up to 9 hours"

    Microsoft's website says "up to 9 hours of battery life" the best I ever got was 7:30 hours on windows 8, and never more than 5 hours on windows 10. Has anyone actually gotten 9 hours or does that sound as impossible to you as it does to me? Also you might say: "but they say up to" and that's...

    has anyone gotten xterm-256 colors working in bash?

    now that W10 has bash (this is really freaking cool) I was wondering if anyone managed to get 256 color mode working? I tried xming and xterm but get some sort of error about dsub not existing. I don't have time to investigate further now but I'm impressed that bash is working as well as it is.
