Well, that has been interestingly fast. Microsoft has announced via both a forum post and through its support site that the brand new Surface Pro’s well-document sleeping issue is no more.
Especially, the pleasant news had been delivered by the same Microsoft forum moderator ‘BryanH’ that promised disgruntled users a fix had been on the road just days prior.
For individuals who may not have experienced this problem, like us, a number of brand new Surface Pro owners reported their pills had been arbitrarily entering a “Sleep” state. What’s even worse, a lesser amount of users declare that the bug has triggered them to get rid of work.
Naturally, the fix had been provided through the Windows Update channel via Windows 10’s Settings menu on July 13, with Microsoft’s BryanH alerting users on July 14. Into the spot notes the fix, the firmware up-date description merely checks out “233.1763.257.0 revises system power reporting.”
Microsoft hasn’t explained exactly what this means precisely, but has guaranteed people that this will fix Surface Pro units randomly going to sleep.
While that is definately not the first time a Surface unit to suffer from random bouts of narcolepsy, this really is positively the fastest Microsoft has responded to the problem having a fix.
