    Within the last couple of weeks my Surface has decided to stop waking up. I will close the touch cover before going to bed...sometimes it is on the charger, sometimes it's not. When I wake up, sometimes (more often than not), I'll hit the power button and it won't turn on. If I touch the capacitive button, I get vibration feedback. At this point I have to hold the power button down to hard power off and then turn on and all is good.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    You're just turning on and off, not "hard booting". I've had to Restart when apps such such as the Store or Music are not working. It always solves the problem, but those apps or the OS need improvement, at least to the point that closing and reopening the app is sufficient.

    My exact observation as well. Only happens when the charger is plugged in and left charging for a while. Gonna find some place to tell Microsoft about this, hopefully they fix it with an update.
