    Glad to be back to a Transformer

    I'm happy to be using a Transformer again. I used the TF-101, and spent many days wondering what it would look like with Windows dual boot.

    Then I moved on to the Galaxy Note tablets, and now I'm back to Asus. The S-Pen was awesome, and it might make me return this and get the Venue Pro 11 in a few weeks. We'll see. But that's another story...

    I have read about the great battery life on this device, but in my experience, it's anything but. I took it to work this morning, took it out of the bag 2 hours later, and found the screen on and the back warm. The battery was at 63%. I had not used the device since taking it off the charger 3-4 hours earlier.

    Are there any known sleep issues I should be aware of, or that I can patch to avoid this issue?

    Thanks for your help. Happy to be back.

    Get the latest bios update. If your traveling with it. Better to power it off if something knocks the power button it will awake....

    In addition to the bios update, uninstall Asus WebStorage, both in Metro and on the desktop. There are reports that it repeatedly wakes sleeping machines and runs down the battery.

    This forum is great. I found this in another thread and it appears to have fixed the problem. If not, I'll try to to update the Bios as well.
    If I can write decently with Adonit, I might not even miss the S-Pen.

    I read that too, and that's disappointing. This device is like a Trojan horse for M$. I would never have considered getting one of the more expensive Win 8.1 tablets, but after using this device, I am sold on Win 8.1 (it helps that Bluestacks performs decently) and I am eyeing the Venue Pro 11 at almost twice the price.

    One of the posts here says it doesn't work so well.
    Stylus Options?
