Hey folks, Joao Botto with a quick link to some very important Surface Pro 3 information that Scott McArthur published on the AskCore blog:


If have used a Surface Pro 3 you may have noticed that after 4h of sleep it just goes into hibernation by default. That is because (1) It wakes up from hibernation extremely fast, and (2) If you haven’t touched your Surface for more than 4h you are probably sleeping or enjoying a happy hour with your friends, so we may as well save some power.

When you deploy an Enterprise image to your Surface Pro 3  you will not see that behavior. And Scott shows us how to get it back .
