    I hadn't had the clock switch on me in quite a while until yesterday! I haven't had the SDBus error ever since I started making sure I unplugged all usb devices before shutting the unit down. I don't know if that helps, it's just a hunch, lol! I have nothing to back it up.

    Wow, I'm going to study this really hard when I'm not tired. I really want to get rid of that bug. And thanks for the info on turning of usb charging.

    Just a quick update: I tried the solution posted above by larsdennert, and it didn't work. The clock is still wrong occasionally. The only thing that seems to help is turning Fast Startup off, and not using Hibernate. I found this topic on Microsoft forums, please post there to show that the issue is still there and is indeed a Windows compatibility bug.

    Could be the update interval. Maybe there is a second fix to help this.

    Is there consensus that it is or not recommended/safe to update to Win 8.1 yet or is continued patience advised? :hi2:

    Do we have to update everything-drivers etc at https://www.google.com/search?q=HP+ENVY+x2+11-g010nr+Drivers or can we just do that after updating to 8.1 with the 8.1 listed drivers-BIOS etc ?

    I did the Windows updates & backed up my data just in case but should we expect issues?

    Thoughts on http://www.theverge.com/2014/4/9/5596586/windows-8-1-update-now-available ?

    -Thnx: thumbsup::cool:

    Despite my last two posts I did upgrade to 8.1. Boy was I glad I did. It rejuvenated the staid original 8. There were a few hiccups initially but it's been long enough I can only recall this...

    1. After a faulty 8.1 install I reinstalled 8 from the HP Windows 8 thumb drive obtained from support earlier (I've had my Envy X2 since March 2013).

    2. I had no further issues but I did install the latest 8.1 drivers from the HP Support site before applying the 8.1 upgrade from the Windows Store.

    3. Several uneventful weeks later I upgraded to the 8.1 Update the next day it came out without incident.

    I have not experienced the sleep, battery or clock issues others discuss here.

    I would not hesitate to do this again. I am pleased enough with this result that I returned the Pavilion X2. I wanted so much to like the PX2 but as a plastic Bay Trail update to our Envy X2 I experienced abysmal battery life of 4-5 hr max including keyboard dock battery running on battery saver mode, funky touchpad, fattened undocked tablet and increased weight. It has a faux IPS-like LCD that works as well as the X2 IPS and is noticeably faster but all in all not enough to replace the amazing runtime and quality construction of the Envy X2.

    Especially with the Envy X2 fully updated with 8.1 Update.

    I look at the Envy X2 this way: it's a Chromebook done right and as a bonus it runs the full Windows 8 experience. I've looked at every Chromebook to come out but with the Envy X2 why bother?

    PS. My Pavilion X2 experience is summarized here...

    No Win 8.1 issues now with Envy x2?.. that's interesting, thanks for posting that.

    So to confirm with certainty, install ALL HP 8.1 drivers before updating to Win 8.1 at Windows store? :hi2:

    - Fixes an intermittent issue which causes a Bluetooth mouse pointing device to stop functioning after the system enters sleep or hibernate mode.

    I guess this doesn't cause any issues in Win 8 because all the current 8.1 drivers also list Win 8 compatibility right?:thumbsup::cool:

    -Thnx

    P.S. - Still love my Galaxy Note 2 but looking forward to announcement of Galaxy Note 4 this September (as Galaxy Note 3 loudspeaker was comparatively weak & not enough of an upgrade for me)

    That looks to be the correct driver list. Yes, HP says install before 8.1.

    I agree upgrading most devices is usually an every other generation process including smartphones.

    I finally had the time to update my Envy x2 to Win8.1 today & so far very happy I did with no issues so far. Was surprised that I gained like 3GB space after the install on my C drive somehow & the tablet, desktop & file management experience is improved..:thumbsup:

    Now I have to look into whether it's still not recommended to update my HP Split x2 ultrabook to Win8.1 without the earlier issues people reported at HP Split x2 Ultrabook 2in1 13.3" TouchScreen Laptop 4GB Memory 128GB Solid State Drive 13-g210dx - Best Buy :rolleyes:

    BTW, I briefly checked out the Samsung S5 in an AT&T store the other day & I'll definitely wait to see what the Samsung Note4 offers in September. The HTC M8 however had solid build quality & great speakers so I will check that out again with more time but is not likely to steer me away from my Samsung Note2..:cool:

    HTC One M8 getting great press from all the right places. Hard to imagine better than Note 2 so I gotta look.

    To those who don't seem to have the system clock problem: are you using Fast Startup or Hibernate? I can confirm the problem doesn't occur when I'm not using these, but I'd prefer to have Fast Startup turned on...
