    LOL
    It's a known issue from HP, and no support to provide us this small piece of plastic.
    What a pity!

    Mine broke as well. My husband figured out if you let it go dead, plug it in until the HP lights up, then unplug it, it will then come back on.

    My on off switch broke last week. Had to take the bezel off to turn the computer on. After I off loaded my data, put the bezel back on, but cracked it before sending it back to HP for service. Just received the Slate with a new bezel (which includes a new on off switch) and so far, haven't been charged for the service. Took 4 years for the switch to break.

    Wow. Can't believe you're still using yours.

    Still useful for updating databases for the avionics in my airplane. I now use the Ipad for all my other navigation needs. Tried to update to Windows 10 two days ago, but it said that the slate was incompatible.
