    Hey guys.

    I know some things about computers and tech in general, but this thing has been bothering me for some time now.

    Pressing the power button has always been set to hibernate on both battery and power, and now when i press it, it slides down the lock screen half way saying: pull down to shut down. What is the problem here and how do i fix this? I tried changing the function to sleep and it still won't work... I am not an insider on this one.

    Does anyone have a solution for this issue?

    Thanks

    Go to Power Settings in the Control Panel. There on the left side you have an option like "Choose what happens if the power button is pressed" (I doesn't have an english Windows version). Click it. Then you can choose what you want.

    This is all ok since the beginning, but the button still doesn't work as it should...

    Weird... are you on an Insider build? Because I am on an Insider build and Connected Standby sometimes doesn't work and puts my SP3 in hibernation instead. Maybe there is a bug in the OS?

    Nope. No insider stuff on my surface... Well the thing was working as it should until recently, but now it has problems for no good reason. Not really sure why it stopped working all of a sudden.

    What else can i try?

    I'm having the same issue but I do have an insider build. Any idea what I can do? My volume button was also screenshotting (volume up) and something else for volume down too (can't remember now) but that has stopped.

    EDIT: I thought I did have an Insider build but after looking in settings I may not.

    Maybe the buttons got dirty under, and then there is the pressed command not just clicked (hope u understand me). How can it be cleaned? I dunno, pretty sure it is close to impossible.

    are you just pressing the button and letting go or are you holding the button down for a few seconds? just tap it to put it to sleep, press and hold a short time will bring the slide down screen.

    Same issue here, kinda annoying persisted for a while .... Holding down the power button and the volume up button until the SP4 shuts down fixed it for me.
    Hope it stays fixed
