Windows 10: ToolTips, Other Functionality, Disappears After Sleep

    ToolTips, Other Functionality, Disappears After Sleep


    I am new to Win 10, just purchased a Surface Pro 4 about two weeks ago. Not loving it.

    Several things that is driving me nuts:
    • The ToolTips that appear when I hover my mouse over the system tray disappear
    • The Surface Pen loses functionality:
      • Clicking the eraser doesn't launch OneNote
      • Double-clicking the eraser doesn't take a screenshot
      • Long-pressing the tip to the screen does not launch the context menu


    Note this problem appears sporadically. Service is always restored by a reboot; I don't know if coming out of sleep is the first time it happens, but that is the first time I notice it.

    I have seen another post about a batch file to reset notifications. That's not the issue; the issue is the ToolTips stop appearing.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Correction - it does not appear after coming out of Sleep mode, but rather after coming back from having the Display off.

    I have the Power options set for 10 minutes before screen shuts off; I was away for over an hour, so I don't know if they are connected or coincidence.

Looks like I spoke too soon - it's gone again. Seems to come and go randomly, sometimes works again after reboot and sometimes not.
