    Screen turns on when I close the Transformer. ( while docked )

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    Basically when my Transformer is docked, I will press the power button ( sleep mode ) and then close the lid.

    However when its closed the screen turns back on until the time set as the auto sleep mode occurs.

    Anyone else have this? / know why it happens?

    Not the biggest problem in the world, but it just feels like it could be wasting some battery.

    I think if you are going to 'close the lid' - you might as well close the lid even before you try to put it to sleep mode. AFAIK when you simply close the lid the TF is supposed to go to sleep and is supposed to wake up as soon as you open it up again - but it is supposed to be sleeping if you close the lid - but bear in mind that if you have some media app (I mean audio) running your TF would keep running that media.

    Incidentally if you try to use the left hand side of your TF to close the lid, you might unintentionally push the power button thus waking up the screen!

    For me, I can put the TF to sleep by pressing the power button and then close the lid (my screen remains off) and then if I open the lid the screen is back on - no need to press the power button to wake it - this is supposed to be a feature. The screen remains off when the lid is closed.

    There is a strong magnet in the keyboard dock somewhere close to the 'Enter' button which does this.

    Why don't you ask the hardware expert (aka moi)?

    The magnet is actually right below the - button.

    My TF exhibits this behavior where if the screen is off when I go to close the lid that it turns on. I have a lock screen configured, and the screen only remains on for about 10-15 seconds before turning off.

    I think the best advice is to make sure you have a lock screen (even if it is just the simple circle) and to make sure your screen timeout is not set to NEVER.

    My Transformer does the same thing (turn off screen, close lid, screen turns back on), but if I leave the screen on and close the lid, the screen turns off.

    Does the screen turn off after a while after you close the lid? I wonder if there's a setting somewhere.
