    After powering down my Surface Pro 3, it will not turn on by pressing the power button. I have the latest firmware that came out in July installed. The only way for me to get it to power back on is by disconnecting the type cover and holding the power and volume up buttons for 12 seconds. Any one else seeing this? According to the attached link by Paul Thurrott, this was a known problem earlier and was supposed to be fixed: http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devic...en-good-tablet

    Thanks, the battery is fully charged and this happens even with a full battery and connected to the AC. I've been holding the power button for at least 10 seconds.

    I received this through work and I just emailed my IT department and they are going to send me a new one.

    I just read that article for the first time. Paul says, and I quote:

    When you stop using Surface Pro 3, it drifts into three different power management modes over a period of time: Connected Standby, where it comes back awake instantly, then hibernation after four hours, in which it boots up like an Ultrabook, and then a deeper sleep mode.
    That seems like such a weird thing to say, and at least two commenters were as flummoxed as me! Hibernation saves the contents of RAM to disk and powers off the system completely, so what's this strange new "deeper sleep mode" Paul mentions that comes after hibernation? Quite expectedly he didn't bother to reply to either commenter. I think half the time he has no idea what he's talking about, unless someone has a clue what he's referring to here?
