I have both a nook and a nook color registered to my account. I purchased a subscription to a magazine on my nook color and now on my nook I have a constant pop-up on my the main screen of my nook telling me I have a new periodical available. It's driving me nuts and I was wondering if anyone knows how to disable the function.

I have the same issue on the home screen e-ink, it is there for a while then, goes away on its own after about a week or so.
I think that it is B&N's way of being courteous and letting you know that the magazine or newspaper was delivered in case you forgot. At first it was annoying, but now after about 9 months, I ignore it.
It will go away on its own, but I have never found a way to eradicate it.

Yep. I'm glad it's there. My assumption is that it's there until the periodical is opened. I've never tested this, though. My magazines are short story magazines so I don't necessarily read them when they show up. I read them when I'm between other books.

Actually, I've been unable to open the NYT book review for a week or two - it downloads fine to my PC so I can read it (and it works better on the laptop screen, to be honest) but the notification message refuses to leave the Nook home page *and* I can't open it on the Nook at all. When I try it flashes and then goes back to the list screen.
it's not a dealbreaker but I've rebooted a few times and it persists. Easy way to work around it is to leave the Nook on another page, such as My Documents or B&N Library but it's a bit annoying...
