Just curious, does anyone know if Wifi stays on with the Surface RT even when you turn off the screen (not shut down). For example, if I'm downloading something and the screen turns off after a minute, will the Surface continue downloading? What about when you sleep it?
Also another question. Is there a keyboard shortcut for adjusting brightness and toggling Wifi for the Touch cover?

,Yes the Surface has connected whatever, meaning it stays connected even when your screen is off or the cover is closed. So same as a phone with data turn on. The Surface will continue recwive mail and other updates while asleep via WiFi.

Your excessive battery drain is more likely to be caused by multitasking and not shutting down applications when you're finished with them, particularly the browser, which seems to max out the CPU checking even simple things like gmail.
