    Anyone knows how to disable the vents, when i dont need it? Like in normal laptop i just go under power plan setting and edit and tweak from active to passive, but on the GB power plan i only can edit less voices, while in normal laptop i can edit cpu performance and also other things. Can i access to that?

    Also how to use pen pressure sensitivity settings, ive updated to last and more up to date but still not seeing the setting on the list

    I have to say I disagree that full brightness isn't that bright....I can't look at it at full brightness, even with all the lights on and the blinds up! I keep my brightness at 41% with nightlight coming on at sundown. It works perfect for me and I don't notice any eye strain.

    So it's been almost a week since I've bought this thing and i am very pleased. Coming from SP4, the drawing experience here is un-remarkable! I'm also able to get all the things done that i would normally. My only issue now is that aesthetically, i like the black version, but it only comes with 4gb ram, i might take it back just to get the 8 gb version, but it's silver! Why couldn't they had just given me a 8gb / black option?? :(

    Very minor annoyance though

    Check out this link, it lets you add it back into the power settings

    Also, if you want to save battery life, try this one and limit the CPU to something reasonable. I set mines to 50% max and i'm able to squeek out what feels like 2 or 3 more hours.

    Even when i set the fan to passive, it seems to kick up any way, i don't know how much it will help. I've also noticed that the processor is excellent at idling. The moment i start drawing strokes, it seems to build up heat and eventually the fan comes on, but other wise, it just stays completely cool and fanless.

    The pen pressure setting is in the galaxy book settings app. I don't remember it being there initially, seems to be downloaded in a new version.

    But you will lose connected standby this way, won't you?
