Yes, I have the same ISSUE. It's to the point where I can't use it without it being plugged in. It constantly shuts down in the middle of anything. I charge it fully and when I take it off, it shuts on/off until I plug it back in. It's driving me nuts

I bought my Nook in June 2013 and am already having battery issues. This started a week ago. The Nook needs to be charged every night. Should I take it back to the store I bought from (Target) or?

Marcia, we're sorry that it seems like your device is discharging more rapidly than expected. Try leaving it on and allow it to fully discharge. Then completely charge it and see how the battery responds.
You could also try resetting the device back to Facory Settings. This will deregister your device, removing all digital books and files, including side-loaded content. The titles you have purchased will remain in your account.
NOTE: It is recommended that all side-loaded content you wish to save is backed up to an SD card or computer before proceeding.
To Hard Reset NOOK HD/NOOK HD+, complete the following:
1. Confirm the device is powered off.
2. Hold the Power and Home key simultaneously.
3. Release the Power and Home key once the NOOK logo appears.
A Factory Reset prompt will appear.
4.To continue, press the Home key.
5.To exit, press the Power key.

My Nook HD is doing the same thing - AFTER the V2.1.1 SW update. Because I really like them, this is my THIRD Nook, the prior ones worked and stored battery life pretty normal, but this is crazy. So, I'm not a newbie to this.
Before the SW update, it worked fine and I got 2-4-days battery life from it. I love, love love the Nook, but I swear if this isn't resolved it will be my last one and I'll go to iPad mini, a more stable platform (I know bc I also own an iPhone & iPad.)
To fix this, I have shut down 90% of the silly apps, and would like to remove the crap ones; i.e.; Google+, Google Maps, B&N forced onto my Nook in one of the past upgrades, (thanks a lot); I have done both a soft & hard boot of the Nook several times, tried to reload the 2.1.1 SW update, turned off the WiFi when not in use and am now out of ideas.
Tech help pls - the battery shows "Table idle" 96% use" I know that isn't right, How do I eliminate that? I think then my battery life would be longer than a gnats or < 3-hours. Also, as I brace for the "deregister & re-register' instructions, how do I save my favorites from the store and my shelves? I have over 1200 books, and hate to 're-customize' EVERY time I upgrade or have a tech problem. Hint: I have favorites to eventually BUY, from a marketing view, this is a huge consumer downer.

My Nook HD 8GB battery life is much improved after the v2.1.1 update, and with no tweaking of apps. Maybe I have the wrong apps installed....
