Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video Shut down and restart, part of Learn Microsoft Surface: The Basics.
- Shutting down and restarting a Windows tablet,…for the most part, is the same as on a desktop computer.…What you need to do is go into the Start menu.…So I'll tap on the Start button in the bottom left corner…to open the Start menu, and of course,…here in the Start menu there's a button for Power.…If I tap on that, I have the standard options…for Sleep, Shut Down, and Restart.…So there's no real surprises here.…But most Windows tablets and the Microsoft Surface…also have a physical Power button.…Generally, this button does not turn the computer off.…
Instead it puts it into the Sleep mode.…So on this device, i can press the Power button…and now it's in the Sleep mode.…It's using very little power when it's in the Sleep mode,…and when I need to use it again,…I can just hit that Power button to wake it up.…From here I can swipe up to get to the sign-in screen,…and then I'll type in my password,…and I'm signed in again.…Putting the device into sleep mode and waking it up…is much quicker than actually shutting it down completely.…
