I tried a few times on live chat. all tell me the same thing, wait for 24 to 72 hours. but nothing happen. Just called today and have to wait again.

Did you get a shipping label ? 1st time, i was told they will send me a shipping label. then subsequently, they told me someone will just come and collect the item, no shipping label is necessary in Singapore.

I have the original box and everything minus the plastic bag that contain the chargers etc. DO we need to pack it in a box like when they ship to us ?
They will come collect. Might have to wait up to 2 days. Pack it all into box for the guy they will need the box back. As in pack it back into the surface pro 3 box. No need the brown shipping box

The live chat guys are not support staff, they are sales staff. Only answer qns on product

You need to disable connected standby(InstantGo)



Just run Regedit


HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\CsEnabled


Change it from 1 to 0
Thanks! I try again tonight when I get home. Many thanks!!!

Folks, how do you adjust CPU speed to 50%? It used to be under Power Options but now it's not there. Did a quick search and found that this feature is hidden in Windows 8.1. I've disabled Hyper-V and it's still not there. Suggestions?

Have you try the above step? Seems like this was the step that i missed after i disable Hyper-V. I'm at work so i'll try the above tonight and report back. If you have your SP3 now, try it and let us know the result
