    When I am using my Surface Pro, I can hear a slight fan noise. I expected this and don't mind it at all. When I put my device to sleep, though, something inside starts whirring louder than my old laptop. It lasts for 15-20 minutes at a time. It sounds like the fans, but it is much louder.

    Has anyone else encountered this yet? Do you have any idea what is going on? I feel like this is killing my battery life while the device is supposed to be asleep.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    i have not changed anything. The weird part is that as soon as I wake the Pro back up, the noise goes away.
