Surface Pro 3 - Power button after reinstall with Enterprise

Posted on 2014-10-20
Last Modified: 2014-10-21

I've just got my SP3 and reinstalled it with Windows 8.1 Enterprise right away because I needed Direct Access functionality. But after the reinstall, the power button doesn't act the way it did before. Before it turned off the display and kept the rest of the system on. Now it puts the system into hibernation.

I can't seem to figure this one out. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I have tried both sleep and hibernation. None of them does the same as it did before Enterprise was installed.

Most probably drivers are missing, install all power management and chipset drivers and these options will start working-
