    Shelves Empty After Reboot

      I've noticed that if I turn off my simple touch, any books that were on any shelves are removed.  This only affects books that were on my SD card. 

       

      Has anybody heard of any workarounds for this yet or if B&N is working on a fix for this.  It is too much of a headache going through 200 pages worth of books to find the one I want to read, and I don't like leaving my Nook on all the time because the screen will wear out and the refresh rate drops dramatically after no activity for a period of time.

          Yes, it's a known issue. No, B&N hasn't confirmed they're working on a fix, but then they never comment on what may be in any future firmware releases or when they will happen.

           

          However, I'm not sure where you're getting to this conclusion:


          ... I don't like leaving my Nook on all the time because the screen will wear out and the refresh rate drops dramatically after no activity for a period of time.

          I've never seen this reported. Yes, if you plan to have it inactive for a week or more, it is recommended you turn it off. But the regular "screensaver" does really wear on the screen. It doesn't even draw power to maintain.

            When your Nook is asleep (displaying a screensaver image), neither of these dire consequences is true. The screen won't wear out, and the refresh rate isn't affected. I think you may have misinterpreted something you read and/or observed. Let us know where you got these ideas, and maybe we can help clarify.
