So this morning I'm having trouble with my nook color. It won't scan for wireless networks, and obviously won't connect to any. The wireless is turning on and off all by itself when I view it in the wireless settings. I get two messages periodically. One is: "Activity wireless (in application settings) is not responding" with to options "wait" or "force close." Pressing wait doesn't do anything. Pressing Force close just exits the wireless settings. But then I go bcak to wireless settings and its still the same. The other message i get is: "Application settings (in process com.android.settings) is not responding." It gives me the same two options. Pressing wait does nothing. Pressing force close usually causes my unit to restart. If I press nothing on this message and just wait, my unit will all of a sudden restart by itself. I've tried restarting about 7 times. I dont know what to do, please help!

Are you able to shut it down completely? If you press and hold the power button for like 10 seconds, you can turn it off all the way (not just the screen). Then, once it powers all the way off, you can press and hold the power button for a couple seconds and it will turn back on.
Were you able to update to the new 1.1? As I understand, it should fix wifi issues...

If you have completely rebooted the device and erased and reregistered and nothing has worked, the next thing I would try is a factory reset. I have done this on mine because of another issue I was having and it basically resets your device to out-of-the-box condition. It's kind of a pain to do, but if it works it sounds like it might be worth it in your case.
The instructions on how to do this are here:
It sounds scary, but it worked for me!
