    So is the bad driver also causing weird touchscreen issues? I'm finding that my Note 8 won't stay in sleep mode when I press the power button. It seems to wake right back up again, and then sometimes I can't the touch keyboard to come up to enter the PIN.

    I'm currently trying older drivers to see if it fixes the issue. 7.3.4-28 didn't fix it so I'm going to try 7.3.4-8 and see if that works.

    [EDIT] I ended up just removing the Wacom driver and forgoing Wintab support and it's working properly again.

    I'm running Win8.1 still so this may not be relevant. For me, Wacom driver 7.3.2-12 is working great.

    Hello all,
    Many thanks for saving my Asus Vivotab Note 8 M80TA which is now on Windows 10 1703, especially to Mesosphere the Geek :). I had touch screen problem, 10 pin cable replaced as instructed in this forum. I really enjoy that tablet and it's size + pen.

    This week's W10 update solved the touchscreen issue and improved startup speed and usage reaction times dramatically.
