Tablet Turns On Itself?

Postby travelnshit » July 20th, 2016, 7:55 pm

I have a Linx 10 with Windows 10 installed and it seems that sometimes it just turns itself on. I'll fully charge it, leave it for a day unplugged and off, and when I come back it's lost all charge. Or sometimes I'll come back and it's on. I'm pretty sure I'm turning it fully off and not putting it to sleep or anything. Anyone else have this problem?

EDIT: I just realised I have a 1010b, not a 10. Not sure how/if I can move this post to the correct place?

Sounds like it is in sleep mode. How exactly are you turning it off?

I long press the power button then slide the picture down and it says it's shutting down. I also just realised I have a 1010 and not a 10! My apologies.

Well thats the way to shut it off completely. Very odd, my vision can sit there for weeks and still have 90% battery.

I know right? It's weird. I've gone through all my power settings, I've no idea what's wrong but after extensive Googling I can't find a solution. That's why I ended up posting here :/

Hi

My Linx 1010 also does this. I have used Windows shut down. The tablet shuts down but about 30 seconds later the tablet restarts. This happens even when the tablet is on a shelf with no-one anywhere near. Any suggestions for solving this much appreciated.

Bet you have 'turn on fast start up' checked in power settings. [additional power settings in power and sleep]. turn it off along and the power and sleep buttons to 'do nothing'. See if that cures it. Also when it appears to shut down does your router still show its connected. You may need to turn off wifi when tablet asleep. Best not have sleep or hibernation active anyway just seems to drain power and tablet fires up pretty quickly.

I am experiencing the same issue. Am trying turning off the fast start up and see if that's makes a difference.
