Surface Pro 2 Type keyboard randomly decides to quit working properly

While I'm browsing the internet using Chrome (I know, I know), my Type keyboard decides to randomly quit working properly.  If I click on a link using the trackpad or screen, the browser tries to download the link file, versus going to the link.  This is quickly resolved by hitting the Alt key, but I'm getting a bit irritated.  Any thoughts?

Update:  While working on my Surface, the trackpad quit working.  The keyboard died, too, but it would light up.  I contacted service, and it's going in, but has anyone else had issues?
