    SP(5) Is DEAD. No - Wait! No, DEAD

    Will do! It sounds crazy, but it just might... Oh, wait. You said that. Already ordered the SP8, so we'll see. Thank you

    SP(5) Is DEAD. No - Wait! No, DEAD

    I've been having battery issues with my SP5. Planned on replacing the whole thing this summer. Yesterday, booted up and instantly powered off. Then would NOT power back on. Holding Power button for 10, 20, 30 seconds... Power + Vol Up, Power + Vol Down, Vol Up + Vol Down, etc. etc. etc. THEN...

    Battery Almost Shot at 26 Months

    Yup, i7-7660U 2.5GHz. I *would*post the report, but it does have lots of personal info that I'm leery about putting "out there"... Are there specific sections that would be most useful? Is there something I can look for to let me know what's interfering with Sleep? (Again, closed the lid, threw...

    Battery Almost Shot at 26 Months

    Have a Pro 1796 i7 (that's the "unnumbered" model between 4 and 6). Was a warranty replacement on my 4 in October 2019. I am lucky to get an hour on my battery - with "Battery Saver" running and Wi Fi turned off. That's bad. (And it will show it's at 38 percent and then go into shutdown within...

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    That is how mine is setup and it shuts down fine. However, I still lose about 0.6 percent power per unplugged hour, even using the "full" shutdown. Not great!

    Hard Drive Replacement

    That's what I was afraid of! No, I had absolutely no idea that was an option. Explain more, please.

    Hard Drive Replacement

    I tried a few searches and didn't see this addressed... Has anyone ever tried putting a new HD in their SP4? I figured 256GB would be more than enough two years ago, but I'm constantly at 80% full - and I keep a lot of docs on an external drive. (Then again, when I pulled my 20MB drive out of...

    Battery Drain after Shutdown

    I forgot this site even existed (Sorry!) when I reached out to MSFT to try to resolve this issue. I signed on today for other, unrelated help... And saw this thread... I'm in the same boat... I have learned to really like my SP4, but the battery issues are perplexing. Between this and my Android...

    Pen Button Sporadically Works

    It's a brand new machine/pen/battery. Before I go track down a AAAA battery, how would a weak battery explain that it happens sporadically, and "resets" with a reboot/remapping?

    Pen Button Sporadically Works

    My SP4 has been far more trouble than any other machine I've ever owned (including a 1973 VW Bug that leaked oil and had rusted floor boards). Now I am down to (what I hope is) my last gripe... But this will soon be the most expensive thing gathering dust in my closet, if I can't resolve this...
