Probably the most idiotic question ever asked but...

Exactly how are you supposed to turn a nook on... now before you click ....close this thread get me out of here she's a nut, hear me out.

 

I try to turn on tmy  Nook and sometimes the screen just flashes and doesn't actually boot up the Nook....I simply press the power button and the top screen may flicker from grey to black but the loading  screen but fails to boot.. Usually if I press the on button twice I get vertical lines on the screen then the proper Nook loading screen.  Is this normal?  Is there a number of seconds you are supposed to hold the button to turn the reader on... I just got this Nook and if this is odd I would rather exchange it for another one that isn't defective.  Has anyone else had this problem?

Ha!  This is the first question I can answer, cuz I just got my Nook too.  According to the User Guide, "To turn your Nook on, display the touchscreen, awaken your Nook from sleep, or cause your Nook to sleep, press the power button for about one second and release it."  (Page 16, under Power and Charging.) 

 

Sometimes my Nook does the same thing you were complaining of.  I'm guessing that I'm just a little too quick on the power button,.  I KNOW I don't always hold for a full second.  And to the best of my knowledge, the lines are normal.  No problems yet!
