Good evening. I have been researching this because I am now having Windows 8.1 issues. Most likely due to the inordinate number of battery based shutdowns.
As far as the shutdowns on battery go, I have had the machine for almost exactly a month and pretty much when I unplug it the laptop shuts down. I have tracked it to a spot on the bottom where the black label with all of the certifications is. If I power it up and tap there, even very lightly, the laptop shuts down immediately. If I leave it sitting on a table while using it on battery power it seems fine but the moment I move it or pick it up it shuts down.
Any tips would be wonderful. I am going to remove all of my software and data then open a case with support to have it fixed but if the contents of this thread are any indication it does not look like it will help.

I put a few layers of tape over the switch and now I have no issues. If it gets worse I'll try soldering but I'd rather avoid warranty voiding behaviour for now if I can.
If you're going to be adding safety measures to your devices, please make sure you at least test them thoroughly first.

I am curious as to what the fix is?
I'm on my second S3 Yoga 14, the first was exchanged under warranty for this problem and my new one is experiances the same issue. I don't want to have another notebook shipped out to me to only have it become unusable in a month and have to exchange it over and over again.
