    scared me when I did the system firmware update when I first bought my SP3 (Aug 15) it turned off and didn't really seem to do anything for a while.

    Held the power button for a long time and then back on again, but stuck on this updating firmware screen for quite a while. And again on 2nd reboot... Not sure if that's normal but I found it a weird experience.

    What you did is a great way to trash the machine a couple days after purchase. Firmware updates do turn the screen on and off a couple times and can take a while. For whatever reason it can also take longer on some machines than others. Interrupting a firmware update can leave a machine in an unusable and irrecoverable state.

    Wow, i would be scared if i were you aswell knowing that i was going to be rebooting like a maniac during a firmware update. If you want to ruin any device , rebooting during firmware update is a great russian roulette method of going about it - Adam

    I am frustrated, too and I am having same problem, too. I have also noticed that since the last firmware update in mid-August, the CPU is very busy in Connected Standby. The result is that I see the CPU information in slleepstudy what causes me to lose about 11 percent of battery in an hour.
