Tattoos and Type Covers

So my Surface type cover recently stopped responding right before a demo to a prospective employee about how cool Microsoft is… Tried the usual stuff, pull off the type cover, reattach, grab coffee.  Solution was to power down, then restart by holding power plus the up volume button for about 10 seconds… Continue holding as it starts… You are taken into BIOS. Exit and save the bios, then low and behold the type cover works again after restart.  Thanks to the heavily and tastefully tattooed person at Harvey Norman for this trick.  Other Type Cover tricks here… https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-au/support/hardware-and-drivers/troubleshoot-surface-keyboards?os=windows-10
