    Well, after reading about some if the issues with the Vivotab Note 8 on this forum it sounds like I got lucky, but I'll mention this in case anyone else knows what I'm talking about. I picked up a refurbished VTN8 32 gig for a gift for someone else and its a great feeling device. I played around with it for a week to make sure it's in good condition to give and one thing I noticed is that perhaps one out of ten times the power button, rather than wake the tablet, wakes the tablet and shows the 'slide down to turn off your pc' prompt, as if its sticking for the few seconds needed to show that. Anyone else ever seen this?

    I've seen that too.

    My assumption is that the system got woken up, the screen turned off to save power.

    I just hit the Windows button to wake it up.

    opposite the power button to wake it up.
