To make hibernation unavailable in Windows 7, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
  2. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
  3. When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
  4. At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press Enter.

I used these steps to free up about 15gb of space on my c drive!

I had this issue twice now on the same surface.

The issue is the keyboard and the trackpad will not work, all troubleshooting was done including replacing the keyboard with the Surface Pro 4 keyboard and still no luck.

The Fix:

Just shut down the Surface Pro/2/3 normally using the power button. Then, when it’s off, press the power button and the volume up buttons at the same time, for at least 15 seconds. You may see the screen or the lighting on Type Cover flicker, but keep holding the buttons.

Release the buttons, and let the machine sit for at least 12 seconds. Then, turn it back on normally.

Your system might enter the system bios, just use the keyboard to exit.  After booting into Windows your keyboard should work fine again.
