    I have a new SP4 and while I really like it, I'm having a hard time sorting out how to arrange the hardware when using it as a tablet. If I fold the keyboard back and put in my lap, the keys are against my legs, and that's weird. I assume, as the keyboard is still connected, that I will accidentally type things (problematic), and I'll have to manually activate tablet mode (not a biggie). I know I can turn it around so the keys face the back of the device, or disconnect it completely--is that what most people do? Or is there some other arrangement I haven't thought of?

    When you fold the keyboard back, it automatically deactivates, so it's impossible to accidentally type something. I prefer to remove the keyboard when I know I'll be using the device as a tablet for more than 10 min.

    I have read that some people put on the keyboard backwards so when they use it the keys are against the body. Not sure if it brings any problems with it though.

    Yeah I flip the keyboard around so they're not exposed and against my legs. But if I know I'm going to be in pure tablet mode for awhile I just take the keyboard off.

    As mentioned above, flipping the keyboard back will not cause you to type things.

    Also, when you flip the keyboard back, the tablet can do into tablet mode automatically. You should not have to manually activate it.
