How do you save your page in a book when you turn your nook off?

How do you save your page in a book when you turn your nook off? Please help It's really annoying me that I can't save my page.

You need to add a bookmark. On the touchscreen go to Bookmarks and then Add a Bookmark. Also, do not turn your Nook off...just let it go to sleep or press the top power button for 1 second to put it to sleep. Bookmarks get lost when you power off completely and there is no need to do so. Hope that helps! :-)

First, search these forums.

 

Second, hit the home button to back out of the book before you finish.  Then, don't turn your nook off (off = blank screen).  Just hit the power button momentarily and it will put your nook to sleep (sleep = image on screen).

 

There should reportedly be a fix in the next firmware that will fix this.  But there really is no need to turn the nook off.

I agree you do not need to turn the nook off, however the power consumption in sleep mode is not negligible; I hope that the next firmware solves this issue.  I would prefer to turn off the nook at night to save power; however I am then tasked with finding where I left off.

Just wanted to post to stress to the OP that you should never turn your nook off.  (I suppose the only exception to this rule is on a plane.)  If you just let your nook go to sleep, it will save your page.  I have never turned my nook off in the 3 weeks I have owned it.  It has never once lost my page.  I read every day, but have only had to charge it four times.  The battery power lost while in sleep mode is negligible.

Don't. It doesn't work reliably. Put it to sleep instead.

 

BTW, if you travel a lot, you may not always remember to turn it off (vs. putting it to sleep) when on an airplane...some might even recommend you not worry about it and don't bother in fact. As long as you're in Airplane mode does anyone think that there's a real potential that a) a $30M plane is going to be brought down by a $250 ereader, or b) that everyone else on the plane have turned off their Blackberries, cell phones and other electronic devices? Ever wonder why wireless Internet on a plane is bad except now when they can bill you for it? :smileyvery-happy: Better to worry about the possibility that someone on the ground is pointing a surface to air missile at the plane than that your Nook is going to cause it to crash - lots more likely.
