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.
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.
Mine only takes about 3 seconds of holding the button down for the 'touch the future' message to appear. I havent had an issue with any of the buttons not working properly 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.
