    I just upgraded from SP3 to the new Surface Pro.

    When docking to Surface Dock, I would usually close the Surface lid, and solely use the external display (i.e. only using Display 2). With the SP3, this setup is persistent. But with the new Surface Pro, after a few minutes, the SP display will automatically turn back on, and it becomes "Extended Display" mode.

    This usually happen by itself when the lid is closed.

    I also noticed that when I open back the lid, the SP display will turn back on into dual display mode. This wasn't the case with the SP3, the SP3 display stays off even when opening back the lid. I can't seem to find a way to prevent this from happening with the new SP.

    I suspect the SP display automatically turning back on (with lid closed) after a few minutes may have something to do with the lid connectivity being unstable.

    Anyone else having the same issue? Any way to fix this?
