This problem would only happen when the device is in sleep mode. Once I flipped the type cover, the device will shut down unexpectedly. I also checked the event log, it shows that the shutdown happened when I wake it up. I suspect it might be my type cover 2 causing it.
Actually if u google, its not just Microsoft having issue..
I think its an issue with W8 and connected standby
Basically it goes to sleep and has issues waking up

"Sleep" is different from the older "Turn display off"
If your on W8 you can try disabling connected standby. Im not sure if its possible on the RT

Not true that all wacom pens will work, there are two different technologies that wacom uses and not all pens are compatible.
TabletPC Compatible Wacom Pens (Work with Surface Pro)
Seems like I was mistaken, I thought the RT had a wacom digitizer

Yes, the Surface 2 will shutdown automatically once I flip the type cover when it's in sleep mode.

I suspect it's my type cover 2 but I can't confirm. This issue is driving me nuts.

Just requested a refund for my surface 2, glad that they understood my problem and was willing to refund although it's more than 14 days old. Bye Bros here!

If anyone is selling their Surface 2, 32gb. Do drop me a PM.
It'll be a bonus if the type keyboard is included.
However, I am only looking for one which comes with original receipt and less than 3 weeks old. Thanks.

From the article it mention either surface mini or surface pro 3 quite interesting... but 2k resolution is over exaggerated, if this is true the next tablet may cost additional 150 to 300 usd...

Seems like your issues not resolved. Anyone have his issues as well on their tablet ?

The replacement tablet can't be on anymore, the device will power up and off repeatedly. .

Never send your brand new surface for replacement, you will get back a lemon.
