    Posting this in case it happens to anyone else.

    Today I took my surface to work without the charger to see how much time I could squeeze out of it. (Didn't wanna get tempted to plug it back in.)

    Nearing the end of the day, at about 10% power my device really started wigging out. The touchscreen would, at times, stop responding entirely. Sometimes with keyboard. Sometimes without. Rebooted about ten times. Only the Wacom pen would work. Got it down to 6% and was really starting to freak out.

    Realized it only really started losing touchscreen control when the low-power triangle came up. Set it to power saver mode and the touchscreen went back to normal. I tested as much as I could to be sure. But it sure as heck scared me before I thought to try that. I figure Windows starts looking for stuff to disable when it gets to that point, and the fact that it picked the touchscreen was a tad bit scary.

    Just wondering, if anybody finds themselves with the low power indicator, any chance you could attempt to duplicate this? Might be something bug-report worthy.

    Quick update: On charger, entirely back to normal on my plugged-in profile.

    *thwacks computer* Don't scare me like that.
