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.

I dug for for a solution for this so I thought I would post my findings.

My systems were a huge delay when using copy and pasting in Excel 2013.  My sheet wasn’t even complex.

Here are the things that I have found help.

  1.  File/Options/Advanced/Disable “Automatically Flash Fill” and Disable Enable Auto complete.
  2.  File/Options/Advanced/Display Disable hardware graphics acceleration
  3.  Press Windows Key and U for Ease of Access Center.
  4. Go to “Use computer without a display”
  5. check the box “Turn off all unnecessary animations (when possible)”

 

That should help speed things up in Excel 2013 for you.
