    Hi all, i just accidentally discovered a new feature on the Pro 3. You can actually long press the Power button and the lock screen will drop down half way from the top and say "slide down to power off" - Just like a windows phone.

    Can't believe i've been using this computer for so long and never realized this!! I also just tried this on my RT but unfortunately the screen turns off (goes to sleep) as soon as i press the power button, so no "slide down to power off". :(

    This also works on the Surface 2 but doesn't seem to on my Surface Pro 1. I'll check my power settings to make sure it's not just something there.
