    Trouble with power button....

    MiloBramble

      I am having a heck of a time getting my new NC to power up like it is supposed to.  I know that a short press on the power button puts it to sleep and wakes it up.  When I long press on the power button it powers off just fine after confirming with me that I want it to.  It is powering up that is the issue.  When I long press, 10 to sometimes 30 seconds, nothing happens like it should.  It will eventually turn on but it takes several presses and the last time I had to plug it in to get it to turn on.  I am thinking that the button might not be making good contact inside the unit.  I just bought it on Monday So I am thinking about taking it back to the store for an exchange.  I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this issue.

       

      Thanks.

       

      p.s......I left it turned on last time and left it on, plus this way I can do a battery length test.

          Haven't had this issue, and I will ask this question, but assume you know this.  Are you waiting for the Touch the Future of Reading screen to come up because it does take a bit since it's booting?  You should only have to hold it down for a few seconds and then wait and it should come up.  At least that's how it is on mine.

            I have had my nook color since the day it came out, and I am just now having that problem myself.  If you find something out could you please let me know.
