    I just got this tablet and really like it but for some reason, when the screen is off I don't seem to get any email notifications at all. When the screen is on, I hear the usual noise and see the banner on the top right but when the screen is off, nothing.
    This leads me to beleive that :
    1) the wifi is switching off when the screen is off or
    2) The DVP8 doesn't do email notifications (or any notifications) when the screen is off.

    I have "as mail arrives" set in the Mail app so the mail should be getting pushed to the DVP8.

    Can anyone suggest anything please..

    Just an update.
    I ping'd my tablets IP address and a couple of minutes after the screen goes off, it stops responding to the ping.
    How do I keep the wifi adaptor from sleeping?

    Any help would be greatfully received...

    I don't think the mail app has sound notifications. It does download emails in the background while locked though.

    Settings > change pc settings > search and apps > notifications. There you can select whether to play sounds and which apps should show notifications.

    I do hear sounds even when the screen is off.

    Im using an Asus T100, but I expect the settings should be the same across Windows 8.1 devices.

    The mail app does have sounds. You can change the sound in the Control Panel--> Sounds. I'm a little of a nerd and have mine set to the Star Trek doorbell sound. :)
