Surface Pro 3 Hibernation Update You’ll Want To Apply

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR OUR READERS!

AskPFEPlat is in the process of a transformation to the new Core Infrastructure and Security TechCommunity, and will be moving by the end of March 2019 to our new home at https://aka.ms/CISTechComm (hosted at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com). Please bear with us while we are still under construction!

We will continue bringing you the same great content, from the same great contributors, on our new platform. Until then, you can access our new content on either https://aka.ms/askpfeplat as you do today, or at our new site https://aka.ms/CISTechComm. Please feel free to update your bookmarks accordingly!

Why are we doing this? Simple really; we are looking to expand our team internally in order to provide you even more great content, as well as take on a more proactive role in the future with our readers (more to come on that later)! Since our team encompasses many more roles than Premier Field Engineers these days, we felt it was also time we reflected that initial expansion.

If you have never visited the TechCommunity site, it can be found at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com. On the TechCommunity site, you will find numerous technical communities across many topics, which include discussion areas, along with blog content.

NOTE: In addition to the AskPFEPlat-to-Core Infrastructure and Security transformation, Premier Field Engineers from all technology areas will be working together to expand the TechCommunity site even further, joining together in the technology agnostic Premier Field Engineering TechCommunity (along with Core Infrastructure and Security), which can be found at https://aka.ms/PFETechComm!

As always, thank you for continuing to read the Core Infrastructure and Security (AskPFEPlat) blog, and we look forward to providing you more great content well into the future!

Hey folks Joao Botto with a quick link to some very important Surface Pro 3 information that Scott McArthur published on the AskCore blog: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2014/11/05/surface-pro-3-hibernation-doesn-t-occur-on-enterprise-install.aspx

If have used a Surface Pro 3 you may have noticed that after 4h of sleep it just goes into hibernation by default. That is because (1) It wakes up from hibernation extremely fast, and (2) If you haven’t touched your Surface for more than 4h you are probably sleeping or enjoying a happy hour with your friends, so we may as well save some power.

When you deploy an Enterprise image to your Surface Pro 3  you will not see that behavior. And Scott shows us how to get it back.
