A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

Hi there,

I am using a hybrid tablet pc with windows 10 (with Dockable keyboard and trackpad) however, when I close the table in laptop mode the screen does not shut off and go into sleep mode like it used to I have tried changing settings in the power management screen to no avail. Is there a way to force this in the registry? I have heard that this could be an issue with intel engine management and there are suggestions to roll back to a previous driver I have not attempted this suggested solution yet

Hello everyone,
I have a few Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and a couple of them run really hot.  It usually happens when starting up for the first time that the Surface Pro 4 will run hot and the fan is running constantly for about 20-30 minutes.  Then it seems to regulate and operate normally.
Should this be happening?  Is it possibly hardware or software driven?
Nothing really shows up in the event logs that stands out.

Dear Experts,
Recently, one of my clients requested I look into finding him a good combination of rugged tablet and mobile printer for his workers to use on the road. This is his description:
"They need to connect via cellular, not just wifi.
Print load is small – perhaps 6-15 prints a day – 1 or 2 pages per print… but need to withstand dirt and mild abuse.
Tablet will access internet and use web for application they will be using.
That website may integrate with google maps, and they may use it for navigation, and they may use email app on tablet"

My past experience with rugged tablet is only with Fujitsu, which I do not see anymore, and I want to make sure that I select a combination that will fulfill their needs without being too difficult to connect to Internet, Cellular, etc.  I do see some portable printers with battery, such as
Canon Pixma iP110 or HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer, but I do not have any experience using them.
If you could share some working sample combinations, I would greatly appreciate it.

I've been using OPENDNS on my Netgear R7000 for over a year - it successfully filters out undesirable items from all computers on our home network.  A few days ago I noticed that it still blocks when using tablets (iPads / iPhones) but is no longer work on any hard-wired computer.  Been trying to troubleshoot this for days - no luck.  Have tried all suggestions in their forums (https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988707-Why-OpenDNS-is-Only-Working-on-One-or-Some-of-my-Computers-Devices#scenario2) - no luck.  Anyone else had this issue?

We have a shop that uses Topaz Model: T-LBK462-BSB-R signature pads in a Remote Desktop environment. We have 7 total signature pads and two of the pads freeze up and stop working when the software tries to call the signature pad on COM9. The other 5 signature pads are configured exactly the same and are working with no issues.

The OS that the pads are working on are either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64 and can't seem to figure out why the other two pads freeze up and stop working. I can login to the remote server once and use the DEMO software remotely and it works, but every time after that we have to force-close the software and re-establish the connection.

Just wondering if anyone knows why these two pads may be timing out and not working, or why the COM ports become non-responsive. I've tried swapping computers, and signature pads and the pads work on other computers with no issues. I have the latest USB drivers and BIOS and have wiped and reloaded windows to try and resolve the issue.

I did some testing on the server with HyperTerminal and found that I wasn't able to connect to COM9 right away, but after I run "change port /query" on the server in the command prompt, I was able to connect to COM9 with HyperTerminal with no issues and run a test on the sig pad. Why would running "change port /query" make the redirected port available?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

I had this question after viewing delphi intraweb upload file.

I have an Intraweb app  (Delphi XE4) which successfully uses IWFileUploader. User can upload a file to the application's dedicated folder if they access the app via a windows pc.

Problem is that one of the users has a Samsung Android tablet which they use to access the web application, and IWFileUploader doesn't work.
Ideally they'd be able to take a photo with the tablet, and upload it to the Intraweb app's web directory.

Is this even possible?
What's the best way to proceed?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

We have 2 Azpen a1048 tablets that were recently purchased from a local retailer. When attempts were made to install needed applications there were errors that would occur after install saying "Root Detected". A call to Azpen support concluded that the tablets needed to be "flashed", however they were sure to mention that doing so would void the warranty even though they provided the image.

Thank fully we only flashed 1 of the tablets which can be recognized via USB, but since the flashed image was applied NOTHING appears on the screen when it is powered on. The power button was held in for minutes and left charging overnight - still nothing appears on screen. Not even the Android robot. We cannot get this item to display anything, but we can see the storage via Windows Explorer.

We have tried 2 compatible Allwinner tools, both which say flashing 100% complete, but the tablet fails to display anything on screen. It's disappointing that Azpen would conclude flashing was needed and then say it's not supported. I'm hoping somebody has an idea before we throw this tablet away.

Any advice will be most appreciated. Thx

Hi,

We're experiencing an issue with regards to ADFS 3.0 login page not rendering correctly on a mobile device under certain conditions.  I have attached a screenshot.

I have an Android device and when using Chrome the text overlays the password box if I use my SwitfKey keyboard but if I use the standard builtin keyboard then the text is fine.

On some other devices (Windows phone) the text overlays without the keyboard on the screen at all.

Is there something I can do in the ADFS config for the login page?

Thanks

I have a Hexa Spring 8 Windows 10 tablet. I was downloading anniversary update and after it finished, the screen told me that the tablet was offline and to enter the last password, which I did. It tells me "your device is offline. Sign in with the last password used on this device. " 
How can I reset it without a keyboard (no visible poke hole) .

We were evaluating one of these tablets but once we had added it to the domain, and our Group Policies had applied, we need to use CTRL-ALT-DEL to log in.

There are no key sequences to do this on the Lenovo.

Other tablets use Power key + Volume up or down, but this does not work.

I updated it to the latest BIOS but still no go.

Lenovo customer support did not have a clue.

Obviously you can attach a keyboard and do it, but we need to use these as tablets in the filed without keyboards.
