Well... on the other hand you can turn off your Cybook easily, unlike the Sony Reader. Even though you can add a real off button for the Sony, you still get a VERY long booting time.
It's part software based, part hardware based. You can really improve your battery life with the right software too (for example what the community did for the iLiad using PDF).
