A few nagging issues with Windows Technical Preview 9926 on a Surface Pro 3

I can’t say I’ve checked out all the newest features, but overall, I like it.

However, there are a couple of nagging issues that I’ve run into:

  • No hibernation.  It’s enabled in the registry, powercfg /h and all that is set, there is even a hiberfil.sys file available, but the normal trick of getting it to show up as an option when you ‘press’ the power button doesn’t work.  No hibernation option.
  • Can’t sleep.  Or, should I say, it is so sensitive that when I choose for it to sleep, just about anything seems to wake it.
  • Can’t ‘unblock’ files downloaded from the internet.  Even when the group policy is set, files will still say they need to be unblocked, and trying to do so appears to do nothing.

All in all, that’s not too bad.  And I get that snazzy new calculator.
