comment Connected Standby eats battery when wlan is down
That way I'd have to remember to enter airplain mode every time when the Surface might leave the hotspot - which I don't know in advance. I'd rather disable connected standby fully, if there is a way.

comment Wireless connection hangs after wakeup
Pierre, do you only have the problems when Hyper-V is activated? I don't need Hyper-V, so I have no inclination for digging in deeper.

Did the commands, still the same problem. I add the output to the question (better formatting).

comment How to see if SkyDrive is still syncing in windows 8.1?
As I wrote before, my use case is where I have made changes on some other computer to a file which is locally available on this one, too. So the file is available offline, but SkyDrive has pending downloads with changes made on some other computer. If I change this file locally I'll have a sync conflict (and I can make changes since it is available offline).

That actually sounds like the best idea I read so far, thanks!

The Icon overlay is only visible if I have local changes which will be synced later. In my case I am waiting for changes which had been made on a 2nd Computer. The old SkyDrive showd the sync overlay for that, too, the new one does not so I might edit an old file without knowing it (generating a conflict). This was better in the old SkyDrive sync.

comment Disable image compression in word 2010
@Karan, I tried Acrobat Pro, it works nicely up until page 200, then it "forgets" to embed the images into the PDF :( I'll try Bullzip now, thanks!

Karan, I heeded your comment and tried Adobe Acrobat Pro, it creates nicer PDF files. So I'll probably buy that one and be done with it, thanks! Funny Thing is, it changes the colors slightly (lessens contrast)

Charlie, it is disabled but still it seems word does Limit the Images to 220dpi.

comment Disable image compression in word 2010
Most "free" PDF creators I encountered so far have some sort of nagware inside. They add Advertising or stuff. So I'm not really happy about starting a wild goose chase to find one which might not add nagware and additionally supports higher Resolution. Ain't there some easier solution??

comment Get Office 2013 to open files local instead of on SkyDrive?
I didn't think about deactivating SkyDrive. I just wanted it not to automagically recognise some local files as "These belong to SkyDrive so I'll manage them instead letting the SkyDrive-Tool doing it's job".

My Office 2013 linked itself to SkyDrive. It never asked for Login data or Details. And I don't know how to deactivate it.

comment Touchpad of notebook sometimes does not work after booting
I tried, still didn't work. In the end I trashed the Notebook and bought a Lenovo instead.
