After countless 'restart and update' notifications, I installed the update but I'm still having random lock-up's. Rather than swear and curse about it, I just press the start button to perform a hard reboot. Problem solved (until the next lock-up!).
One thing that seems to be working for me at the moment (1hr in) is go to device manager and uninstall the Intel HD Graphics drivers and ensure they are deleted, yes delete them. And then restart tablet, windows will reinstall drivers.
One problem with just uninstalling without deleting is that when windows reinstalls them, it will use the same files as before, you want new driver files. Hope that made sense.
I have to see what you all are experiencing. I'm going to use my Surface 3 full time to witness these strange issues because I never have, but I have been using my Surface 3 like an iPad. Not like my main PC. I'll report back with what I find....
Its Tuesday and no lockups or blank screens. I did have an issue Sunday night where Edge wouldn't close a tab and that tab was flickering like crazy but it eventually closed and the tablet never slowed down. If I switched to another application it happened instantly despite the flickering Edge tab.
I am running in Tablet mode. For me that's the best way to use my Surface 3.
Tonight i'll probably tryout watching a movie on Prime to see if it causes issues or not. So far so good.
