    Ok, apparently not any more, you can get it for around 30 Euros...

    I use the Microsoft Sculpt Touch mouse. The Wedge was too small for me. The Sculpt Touch is still smaller than a regular mouse but big enough to be comfortable. Has worked very well while traveling or with the tablet in the docking station.

    For a smoother Executive G2 pen experience, do the following:

    Device manager.
    Expand Human Interface Devices.

    You should see (2) I2C HID Device entries.
    Click on both, hit details tab. Then click on Property drop down menu box. Click on hardware IDs.

    You're looking for the I2C HID Device that has as a hardware ID "ACPI\VEN_ATML&DEV1000"

    ATML=Atmel (Who makes the pen and screen digitizer).

    Once you figure out which I2C HID Device is for Atmel, click on the Power Management tab.
    Uncheck "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power"

    This will stop the screen's digitizer from sleeping. Now only your pen will sleep which only requires that you click the pen's button to wake it up.

    Happy inking. :)

    @2.0™ : Do you also, by any chance, know how to increase touch sensitivity? I applied a screen protector and it is really nice. However, touch inputs are suffering in terms of accuracy very often.

    I would appreciate it!

    There is a possibility:

    Open the taskmanager. Click on the details tab.

    Right click on the Tabtip.exe process and set priority to high. (Do not set to realtime...). See how that works. The change is only temporary since whenever you reboot, the setting will be lost. To make the setting persistent, you will need a program. One such program is Process Lasso. It's free. It will save your priority and affinity settings. If you use this program, it's best to disable the ProBalance feature as it seems to cause random reboots when enabled. Otherwise the program works great. You can even use it to set priority for certain programs like Firefox, OneNote, etc. Don't go overboard though since if you set too many programs with a high priority, you defeat the purpose in doing so.

    You might also want to look into disabling some services. I have my setup moderately tweaked and it runs smooth as hot butter.

    The other thing is, make sure that when you are tapping the screen, you don't use your finger tip near where the nail is but instead use the flat part of your fingers as if you were doing a fingerprint blot. There's more capacitance there than at the tip.

    We have now the first productive Elitepad 1000 runing. Everyone likes it very much, except the pen.
    The pen needs too much pressure to work in a the correct way. Is there no possibilty to change this?
    I tried to deactivate the pressure sensitivity in OneNote, but still a lot of pressure is needed.
    Maybe we switch to the Lenovo 10 devices.

    It should be light and smooth in OneNote. How is it in Journal?

    Also are you using OneDrive with OneNote? For some reason cloud backups seem to add some system lag that results in digitizer lag. I switched to using DropBox since it has a faster upload/download and lighter system resource usage.

    I'll probably have to make a post about what services to disable, software to uninstall, and settings to adjust.

    The only problem I ever had was too much pen/screen digitizer sleep which I solved. I also deactivated the "allow computer to sleep this device" on 2 additional devices - The entries listed under Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

    BTW, I've noticed no decrease in battery life by turning these settings off.
