    Keyboard doesn't work if I login in a Microsoft account

    Hello all,

    I'm Markus and new in this forum.
    Since 3 weeks I'm the owner of my first Windows 8 tablet. Until now I had only devices with Android.

    Now I have the following problem with my ASUS Transformer Book 32GB (Windows 8.1, 32 bit):

    My keyboard dock stops working if I link my local account with a Microsoft account, or if I login in a separate Microsoft account.

    After restart of the tablet I can use the keyboard dock to login in Windows. But after login nothing happens (except a beep) if I press any key.
    If I login in a local account (which isn't linked to an Microsoft account) the keyboard works fine.

    Does anyone have the same problem or can explain this phenomenon?

    I can't explain it sorry as I persist in using a local account on my T100 but I would like to say how bad Windows 8.1 is, especially SkyDrive app for trying to force you to use a remote Microsoft acocunt to log onto your own local machine!

    I login using a Microsoft account and have no problems using the keyboard. I was a Win 8 hater until I bought my T100 and now I'm loving it. IE11 modern UI works great as does the modern UI mail app. Best part of using the Microsoft account though is when I wiped my 32GB T100 and returned it for a 64GB T100 and upon logging in both mine and my wife's Microsoft accounts it restored all of our Modern UI apps (needed to re-download but that took a single click) and restored nearly all of our settings.

    I was so impressed at how well using an MS account synced things up that I think I'm going to start using it on my desktops. Will really save time when I need to reformat / re-install Windows.

    I think so many people want to hate Windows 8.1 just on principal and / or because it's so different from Win 7 that they fail to see some of the really great things MS has done (I know I did). Don't get me wrong, there are still issues and it isn't near as polished as Android or iOS yet but I see hope.

    I think the real turning point for me was when I tried picture unlock for quickly switching between my account and my wife's yet still having decent security. What a great idea!

    Probably not fully docked - undock and redock. If that doesn't work - restart. (sometimes it feels fully docked but really isn't - re-docking always fixes it for me)
