    Checked for some updates today and found a small firmware update available. Not exactly sure what it does, but I have noticed improvement with the multiple click issues since it updated.

    Excellent catch-and-callout, omillio! Welcome to WPC's forums and thanks for letting us know. I've installed the firmware and can confirm that hitting the page # links in the WPC forums is a lot more responsive/accurate than it was previously. This is awesome!

    There's definitely a new firmware update (dated 1/21/2014). Could this be farewell to the sleep of death? Installing now...

    I'm not quite familiar with how these updates work-- it's the kind you install by restarting, right?

    Slide left from the right side to bring up the charms menu. Select settings and then Change PC Settings on the bottom. Form the settings options at the left, select Update and recover. From there, select Windows Update, and finally check now. If you have auto updates set, I believe at some time it will download the update automatically.

    I went in and checked a couple of times more after the firmware update, and I then found an optional update for Windows 8.1 RT with a bunch of January fixes, so I upgraded that as well.

    I downloaded the update, and it seems to have completed successfully. But when I go to "View your update history" it shows only updates "Successfully installed" up to 12/30/2013. Does anyone else see this?

    Also, one issue that may be related is that when the 2520 requires a restart after the update, it just shuts itself down. I then have to manually turn it back on. Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    Mine didn't show up in the history either, but it also says there are no updates available, so I assume it'll show up eventually.

    And mine didn't shut up by itself, as far as I know...

    I ran it, and it immediately went into restart mode to install. After cycling, it showed up in history as successfully installed. Browser does seem more responsive, but doesn't appear to have helped the sleep of death issue.

    I would not worry about history. My firmware and windows 8.1 update do not show in history, but they both downloaded, required restarts, and do not show up as available updates anymore. So far it looks like links work better in IE, and the sometimes long stalls when I press the pack buttton in the browser have not shown up yet..so far so good, though a good testing over a couple of days will tell.. still loving this great tablet!

    The update shows in desktop, control panel, windows update, history. These updates usually fix stuff like better WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera, encryption, touch, etch. Maybe they'll have a change log on the WP8 news feeds soon.

    It was new and listed as published 1/21/2014. I too check for updates every couple of days. I didn't see the update until after I saw this thread and manually checked again.

    OK just saw this thread and confirmed my Verizon 2520 is currently BIOS Version/Date Nokia 2.1032.4701.44, 10/12/2013.
    I'm having to consistently power off and back on to wake so let's see if this helps...

    Update: No new updates show for me, even in desktop Windows Update...

    Hum...wouldn't think the carrier would have anything to do with this, but maybe the devices look different to Windows update (AT&T vs Verizon). I'm not entirely sure how hardware manufacturers get updates posted through Windows Update, but maybe Nokia decided to do the AT&T and Versions (and unlocked ones) at different times?

    I have the AT&T version, btw.
