Surface Pro 4 shutsdown when I click the on/off button

When I pressed the on/off on my Surface Pro 4 running Windows 10 it would shut down! Really irritating.

After searching around for a while I found the setting under System Settings that controls the behavior of the on/off button.

  • Open Control Panel > Power Options > System Settings
  • Change the action when the on/off button is pressed to ‘Sleep’.

That’s it. Another problem solved!
