comment opening files directly from Google Chrome
Google Chrome Settings/Advanced/Downloads Clear Auto-Opening Settings button. But, this will clear ALL the settings. If you have set other file types to open automatically you will have to reconfigure them.

comment Can't copy laptop display to hdtv only extended second monitor
Try closing starting the show then closing the lid to the laptop. That will force it to the external monitor only. Or, you can just start watching and drag it to the second screen and maximize there. I used to do that all the time so I could watch and surf at the same time.

comment ASUS UX31A Keyboard Backlight Turns Off After Lid is Closed and Reopened
Glad we figured it out! I'm also using the Smart Gesture - it works better for me than the Elantech driver.

comment ASUS UX31A Keyboard Backlight Turns Off After Lid is Closed and Reopened
What touchpad driver are you using? Windows, Elantech or ASUS Smart Gesture? If you haven't installed anything you should download one from the support page. I'm happy with the Smart Gesture but some swear by the Elantech. Check your installed apps to see if ATK Package is installed. I'm pretty sure you need that for the FN keys to work. But, I have no experience with W8.

comment ASUS UX31A Keyboard Backlight Turns Off After Lid is Closed and Reopened
I wonder if that has anything to do with ATK. Perhaps the backlight got turned off somehow and W8 isn't letting it turn back on. Do your other FN + keys work?

Do you have the latest BIOS? Also, do you have it set to for auto backlight? I think it is FN+a key to enable and disable the auto backlight level. It might be something with W8 that might be causing your issues - did you have it with W7?

I have no clue but you might be able to resolve the resolution mismatch by adjusting the video card resolution to a supported setting.
