A Bug Catalogue

With Christmas fast approaching, it's appreciable that Kobo are trying their hardest to fix all the Voxes bugs. Obviously this is in our best interests too, so I thought to compile a catalogue of known bugs and their frequency amongst forumers to A) Gain insight about how common certain issues are and B) Provide a reference point for new users to know they're not alone. It'd be great if you could post any bugs you're getting, including ones already in the list, and whether or not you've rooted. Thanks!

Known bugs so far:

Wake From Sleep/'Sleep Death'
After being in sleep mode for any length of time, the Vox refuses to wake up. A hard reset is required to bring the Vox out of this state.
There are currently [7] Root units and [4] Regular units in this thread experiencing this problem.

Time Reset
After powering up, the Vox shows the time as 12:00AM, regardless of the actual time.
There are currently [4] Root units and [0] Regular units in this thread experiencing this problem.

Screen Orientation in Reader
While in the Kobo Reader app, the screen orientation will change automatically, even when this feature is disabled in the Vox's settings.
This bug affects everyone and is not spontaneous.

WiFi Toggle Drops
After using the WiFi toggle on the power widget, WiFi is patchy and does not always respond to toggling.
There are currently [6] Root units and [2] Regular units in this thread experiencing this problem.

Battery level misreported
The battery indicator gives the wrong reading on the Vox, reporting the same level until the Vox is restarted or the battery dies. Most users get this after charging and find that the only way to accurately charge the Vox's battery is to turn the unit off before charging.
There are currently [4] Root units and [1] Regular units in this thread experiencing this problem.

Internal/External Memory Cards Unmounting
If USB access is enabled, then the device is ejected via windows and then USB access is turned off on the Vox itself, the internal and external memory may become inaccessible. This is fixed by unmounting then remounting the memory cards from the settings, or rebooting.
This bug is global and affects all units.
