    I don't mean screen timeout, I mean right in the middle of doing something, usually gaming. Hitting the power button turns the screen back on, and it only happens if I've been using the tablet for a half hour or more, maybe. Only happened a couple times, but recently, prior to that, nothing's ever happened like this before. Any suggestions?

    Could be a battery issue, could be heat. Battery is easily replaced and just because your battery voltage reads ok, doesn't mean it can supply the required current during prolonged gaming. Heat might be fixable too, but never had to investigate it. You might try running Aida64 to check the thermal sensors to see how hot your tablet is getting.

    Ok, fair enough. I just don't want to think it's dying or anything, I've only had it about 1.5 years.

    Good chance it's the battery. Although I've never bought from them, check out these guys as they seem to carry OEM, although they don't seem to carry 2014 edition (don't know which 10.1 you have), or these on Amazon. Good luck!

    I have the 2012 version, and I wouldn't know the first thing about replacing the battery, unless you can take the back of this sucker off like a phone?

    The 2014 version (which I have) is fairly easy. Here's a vid for your tablet.

    Any other thoughts on this, or have seen it happen to you? Again, its not like the screen goes 100% black, its like its still lit, but there's nothing on it, and I have to hit the power button to fully turn off the screen, then back again.
