NOOK randomly shuts off and will sometimes will repeatedly shut off during boot up

also the power button either seems to be extremely sensitive or non-responsive....anyone else experience this?

see:

could try a factory reset?  you'll lose all your settings and will have to download your content again.  turn off your nook and then hold the power and N button until a reset dialogue pops up.

my gut feeling is that it is a hardware defect.

yup, sounds like a bad power switch.  but a factory reset won't hurt, especially if the alternative is a refurbed nook.  could try blowing out the switch area, maybe something is back there.
